Santani Wellness Resort & Spa Sri Lanka, Indian Subcontinent

Recent winner of the Tatler Spa Guide “Zen Master” award, Santani has made a huge impact as a newcomer in 2017. In no time at all Santani has already solidified its reputation as one of the best spas in Sri Lanka by providing such a personalised and tailor-made experience for their guests. Specialising in Detox, Anti-Ageing and Weight Loss, each retreat begins with a consultation with their on-site doctors who then tailor your programme to ensure you benefit as much as possible from your stay.

A peaceful wellness haven, Santani is a place where you can re-connect with yourself and live at your own pace. Created as a calming space to help guests de-stress, this hideaway within Sri Lankan hills will soothe the spirit. Just one hour away from the sacred and historic city of Kandy, Santani is enveloped by an abundance of natural beauty. The simple, rustic buildings blend in with the splendid grounds; they are modelled after 16th century architecture in the Tampita Vihara style. The houses peacefully sit atop; large pillars and the inner exposed columns allow a calming balance between a sheltering indoors and the serene surrounding scenery.

Santani will astonish you with personalised wellness services, some influenced with a local Ayurvedic touch. During your stay you will immerse yourself in the healing energy of nature. Outdoor activities such as trekking, biking and swimming will serve to bring your mind, body and soul back into balance.
