Santani Wellness Resort & Spa

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 sealed its reputation as one of the best spas in Sri Lanka by providing a personalised, top-drawer experience for their guests. Specialising in Detox, Anti-Ageing and Weight Loss, each retreat begins with a consultation with the doctor who then creates a programme designed to maximise the benefits of the stay. A personalised fitness plan is also implemented throughout your stay with optional outdoor activities available, including mountain biking, trekking and kayaking in the Hulu River.

A peaceful wellness haven enveloped by an abundance of natural beauty, Santani is a place to re-connect, slow the pace and gain perspective. Tucked away in the hills, this hideaway is a mere one hour away from the sacred and historic city of Kandy, the spiritual centre of Sri Lanka and home to one of the most sacred relics in Buddhist culture. The simple, rustic buildings (modelled after 16th-century architecture in the Tampita Vihara style) have been designed with nature in mind and give homage to traditional Sri Lankan homes with large pillars, exposed columns and polished hardwood floors throughout.  Harmony guides everything they do, 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 and let you enjoy the restorative powers provided by nature.

The Santani spa facility is the ultimate place to go for a little rest and relaxation. Soak up the peaceful ambiance as soon as you enter the consultation room, which faces a lush three-tiered terrace of rice paddies. Visit the marvellous facilities to soak in the thermal salt bath or spend your time in the steam room or sauna. An array of personalised treatments with origins from around the world can be performed in one of three treatment rooms, one which is specifically designated for use by couples. 

Wellness consultants will act as your concierge for the duration of your retreat. They will assist you beginning with an initial consultation with feedback and they will be available as you undergo multiple therapies while on your programme. 


Your all-inclusive resort experience at Santani includes a personalised approach to gourmet wellness cuisine. In place of a printed menu for everyone, Santani’s experienced, internationally trained chefs prepare your healthy natural dishes according to a custom meal plan created in co-ordination with the Head of Wellness and Santani’s in-house Ayurvedic doctor based upon your health goals and physical condition. 

A typical full board meal plan includes: 3 gourmet meals per day (breakfast, lunch & dinner) and non-alcoholic beverages (Fresh fruit juices & herbal tea),
