Santani Resort in Detail

Your Ayurveda & Wellness Resort

Located in the heart of Sri Lanka, northeast of Kandy (about 32 km), the luxury boutique resort Santani is perched on a hill of a former tea plantation, overlooking rice fields and mountain landscapes. The resort is renowned for its minimalist design, which has earned it several awards, and its breathtaking panorama. The peaceful and natural surroundings create an atmosphere that invites relaxation and well-being. Sustainability is a key focus at Santani. There is no air conditioning or TV in the rooms. Digital detox is encouraged, with Wi-Fi available only upon request and exclusively in the rooms. The natural construction from recycled wood ensures cooler room temperatures.

Dining & Leisure

The restaurant offers individual menus for every guest, personally discussed with the head chef in advance, ensuring a balance of the six taste senses. Guests who have booked a wellness package will receive meals tailored to their body type and complementing their treatments. A significant portion of the ingredients comes from our own garden or local farmers. The wellness cuisine focuses on ketogenic (low-carb) and raw food diets, detox, and Ayurveda, with vegetarian options available upon request. Private dining is possible. Lounge, bar.

Wellness & Spa

A three-story spa with a hydrotherapy area (sauna, steam, and salt bath) offers wellness packages focusing on Ayurveda, Yoga, detox, weight and stress management. The goal of these programs is to harmonize body and mind, providing valuable tips to continue a healthy lifestyle after your stay. Alongside a permanent Yoga Guru, guests have access to two Ayurvedic doctors on rotation. Pavilion for Yoga and meditation. Additionally, Santani regularly hosts 'Visiting Masters' from around the world, such as Reiki Masters, osteopaths, psychological coaches, or Yoga Gurus.

Free Time

Spend your free time, for instance, daydreaming by the infinity pool (approx. 16 m) with its breathtaking view. If you're not embracing the 'Digital Detox' lifestyle, a media room with a PC terminal is available (Wi-Fi in rooms upon request). The resort's location is also perfect for mountain biking or hiking to the Hulu River, the Hanging Bridge, or the Narampanawa Temple (2-4 hours). The drive to Kandy, with the world-famous Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, Sri Dalada Maligawa, is about 1 hour.
