A fantastic situation Very peaceful, tranquil and back to nature with laid back luxury Lovely rooms, amazing views over the valley Good food Staff very helpful and friendly Abundant nature, swim in warm river was a highlight! Unfortunately cannot give full marks because of shortcomings with spa We where there for 2 days and could not get a treatment, all slots booked out by people who had booked spa packages We where only offered early morning slot on day of departure, would have meant missing breakfast. The fact that it advertises as wellness resort and not a hotel, means you really do expect to get a treatment I think they need to keep a closer eye on guests coming and how booked the spa is. Important to communicate with guests in advance. Apart from that was perfect
Out of this world ❤❤❤
Santani is one of most beautiful places I ever experienced, located in the mountains with spectacular views, very modern and luxurious yet quite wild and mysterious. We had amazing time with my partner ! Very romantic and peaceful, with amazing healthy food and yoga every morning and afternoon. Santani is one in a million experience that you guys must try coming to Sri Lanka. Service was extremely good and all staff very kind. Will definitely go back.
An incredibly special place
Santani was not supposed to be the last stop on our Sri Lankan tour but once we arrived we couldn't imagine leaving - so extended our stay! This is a magical paradise that has been designed to perfection. The beauty of the buildings and how they so perfectly blend into the landscape can only be experienced in person to truly appreciate the architectural genius. I loved the noises of nature and the feeling of 'camping' in an incredibly comfortable bed. The food really is exquisite and the pains the kitchen go to to cater to your needs is noteworthy. We absolutely loved the excursion to the Knuckles (we did the 5h hike) and it was a highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka. The walk down to the river was delightful and we managed to find our own way to the bridge and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to swim in this gorgeous spot. The spa does not disappoint and the treatments are fabulous. I particularly like the open treatment rooms where you relax into a massage with the sounds of the local wildlife (instead of terrible elevator music) in the background. The only disappointment was the yoga. Unfortunately the 'teacher' was not the usual yogi and I gave up going after 3 classes. But this by no means impacted our stay. It was so hard to leave. Thank you to the entire team for making our time at Santani so special.
A Place to FInd the Purpose
I never that that this place can be a real wholistic wellness place. Though it is bit far from Kandy, the atmosphere is delivering what required for our modern day getaway concept. Stay for long to enjoy more.
Outstanding service and excellent quality!
We stayed for one night and I wish we stayed for more. As soon as we arrived we were greeted warmly and shown the hotel grounds. Our room was amazing, overlooking the lush mountains and the sounds of nature to match the view. The chef comes and tells us the specials of the day and they cater to your dietary requirements and can make / change each dish to suit you. I love that! Every dish was delicious and the portions are generous! We managed to secure a massage treatment even though we booked quite late and it was so relaxing! You feel one with nature and the surroundings. Yoga is complimentary every morning and it was really good, even for beginners. Some parts are challenging too. I do feel the architecture is more masculine and the spa could’ve used a warmer / more luxurious touch but other than that I loved everything about the hotel. The pool is on the small side but I think it’s cooler in this region so swimming and sunbathing is probably not a priority for guests. We would’ve loved to go for walks and hiking but sadly we didn’t have enough time. Every member of staff is welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable. I understand why this hotel is so highly rated. We stayed at other hotels and the service here is incomparable. We were sad to leave the next day and they even prepared lunch boxes (sandwiches and fruits) for us to take on our journey. Would love to go back again one day 😊
