Santani as the name suggests, abundance of harmony awaits for you in the gorgeous hill country of Sri Lanka Kandy. Santani claims to be the first and only purpose- built wellness resort in the whole island of Sri Lanka. The resort is a fully fledged wellness resort with a Spa offering a variety of wellness activities and treatments while cuisine are tailor made to suite the body type of their wellness holiday seekers.
The drive from kandy city to the Santani wellness resort itself is an experience where you keep elevating yourself high up on the mountains passing through lush green tea bushes.
As you enter the resort, be ready to immerse yourself in blissful nature where only harmony exists. We were welcome by the staff at the entrance with a beautiful smile and given the option of either walking up through the hill to reach the arrival lobby or taking a tuk tuk. The arrival lobby is surely one of a kind building which I have never experienced in Sri Lanka.
Drawing inspiration from the great architectural beauty of Kandy, the arrival lobby which also houses the restaurant upstairs is built up with a simple yet elegant style with timber floor platforms and glass windows which let you enjoy the nature outside. Resort’s concept of creating simple and rustic living spaces which connect you so well with nature also goes hand in hand with the resorts aim of creating minimal effect on land and nature which surrounds the resort. I was amazed by the fact that most of the wood used in the lobby building was made out of re-used wood which promises you even more about their policy of sustainability and eco standards.

Cuisine is an integral part of the whole experience here at Santani. Your wellness journey starts with the consultation with doctor at the spa who will identify doshas ( vata, pita , kappa) according to ancient Ayurvedic science and chef will use his magical creations to bring color and taste to your cuisine which will go inline with doctors prescriptions. At Santani there is no restrictions on going with a complete vegetarian diet and yet meals are prepared to suite your wellness program while making sure you enjoy every bit of your meal whether its breakfast, lunch or dinner. The magic is created with less carbs, less oils and using fresh ingredients that would end up with a well balanced meal and as the chef mentioned he will be looking at serving you all six tastes which an ideal well balanced meal should have. So you can still imagine a mouth watering six course meal to indulge in either Sri Lankan / western or fusion gourmet meals.
Santani is indeed a paradise for wellness holiday seekers who also want to bath in luxury amidst nature. The modern aspects are well offered to their guests while also allowing guests to experience and relish the healing goodness of nature which can totally relax and rejuvenate you from within.
