Santani is the first and only purpose-built wellness resort 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. 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.
Santani offers a welcoming place to retreat and rejuvenate within an unspoilt wilderness in the spiritual centre of Sri Lanka. 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.
In place of dogma or rigidity, Santani offers a relaxed philosophy and a personalised approach to rebalancing, whatever that means for you. Each person is unique so we customise every restorative programme around that individuality, based upon a scientifically developed questionnaire to determine the wellness components right for you, so that you are able to have a unique luxury escape. Our only strict ‘rule’ is that children must be at least 12 years of age to accompany their parents at Santani. We thank you for understanding.
Created by and for successful, worldly professionals, Santani is about seeking and finding inspiration, knowledge and encouragement to balance external demands with inner fulfilment. Offering effective, meaningful wellness without artifice, Santani has a pure and simple purpose: to help you get unstuck.
