Named for the Sanskrit word meaning “in harmony with,” Santani realises the sincere belief that sustainable wellness begins by bringing oneself into balance with nature and by allowing ourselves to receive nurture from ourselves as well as from others.
Santani is the first and only purpose-built wellness resort in Sri Lanka, designed according to the highest sustainability and eco-standards. Santani offers a uniquely restorative sanctuary where this belief guides everything we do.
Santani offers a welcoming place to retreat and rejuvenate within an unspoilt wilderness in the spiritual centre of Sri Lanka.Within one of the world’s lushest environments, the holistic architecture treads as lightly as possible upon the land to let nature’s rhythms lull you back to life. Our wellness programmes in Ayurveda, detox, yoga and spa combine on site pampering and rejuvenation with enlightened learning for healthy living long after you leave these naturally rejuvenating surroundings placing us among the best luxury ayurveda resorts in Sri Lanka.
Designed according to the highest sustainability and eco-standards. We spent more than two years searching for this pristine location because we understood humans heal and thrive most effectively where nature meets intelligent, sustainable design. The resort provides guests with luxury escapes beyond compare in Sri Lanka. This 48-acre former tea plantation within a pristine forest has allowed us to create a restorative destination spa, which is completely accessible yet blissfully secluded.
The temperature at the resort is comfortably cool at 2,800 feet above sea level. Our guests are free to roam around these 48 acres of tropical jungle and fertile rice fields, to practice yoga or to meditate along the Hulu River. Dive in and go for a swim if you wish. In the evening enjoy a glass of bubbly by a campfire, relax in our lounge or meet friends at the bar. The choice is yours.
We sought out the latest innovations in health science from around the world to harmonize with the most effective treatments among the rich heritage of Ayurveda in Sri Lanka, thus creating one of the best wellness resorts for our guests. Building upon our global philosophy and extensive therapeutic amenities, Santani takes a lifestyle approach to wellness with two essential components: we pamper your body in an environment designed at every level to revitalize you and we educate your mind so that you leave with healthy habits and practices which allow you to sustain greater mental, spiritual and physical well-being for years to come. That is the Santani lifestyle.
Our tri-level spa tucked into the hillside’s natural contours has been thoughtfully designed with holistic wellness in mind. You enter on the ground level to our reception and consultation rooms, then descend as if becoming one with the earth as you enter the hydrotherapy level. To warm up your body before treatments, this level houses a steam room, the cedar wood sauna with its a glass wall looking onto emerald paddy fields to the Knuckles mountain range, and our open-air thermal salt soak pool. Deeper into nature, the lowest level divides into four treatment rooms all of which are open onto the surrounding paddy fields. One of these rooms is designed for couples.
No two people are alike. As such, every Santani package and guest experience is personalised based on an assessment of body composition, current lifestyle, stress, fitness, emotional state and future goals. The Head of Wellness together with a team of wellness professionals will conduct and analyse the assessment to customize your bespoke Santani programme, bringing you a one-of-a-kind experience only found in the best wellness and spa retreats.
Wellness programmes in Ayurveda, detox and cleansing, yoga and relaxation combine on site pampering and rejuvenation with enlightened learning for healthy living long after you leave our invigorating surroundings.
Harmonising health science innovations from around the world with the most effective treatments of Sri Lankan Ayurveda, Santani offers a thoughtful, sustainable approach to wellness: we pamper your body to revitalize you here and we educate your mind so that you leave with healthy habits and practices which allow you to enjoy greater mental, spiritual and physical well-being for years to come.
Choice and freedom are essential to sustainable wellness. Whether you like juicing, vegetarian, vegan and raw foods or you prefer heartier wholesome fare, Santani is about taking pleasure in the locally sourced, organic food you eat here. Our healthy, nutritious and naturally delicious personalised dishes, are thoughtfully prepared by Santani’s experienced, internationally trained chefs.
Designed to free the mind while treading as lightly as possible on the earth, our private sanctuaries blur the distinction between indoors and out, to encourage you to rest, relax and meditate while inhaling the purest, freshest air and living within in this pristine, truly inspiring scenery that surrounds us.Our rooms are built for natural ventilation and are air-condition free – far healthier for you, and better for the environment, because this saves over 70% of energy compared to an air-conditioned hotel.
