Property Highlights


Spa Breaks

As an award-winning wellness retreat, Santani’s spa is truly exceptional and, spread across three floors, is one of the largest in Sri Lanka. Following an assessment of body composition, lifestyle, emotional balance and future goals, wellness programmes are tailored to each guest’s personal requirements, blending ancient Ayurvedic practices with cutting-edge innovations. Hydrotherapy facilities include a salt bath, sauna and steam room, while complimentary yoga and meditation classes are held twice daily in the yoga sala.

Lakes & Mountains

Set on the site of an old tea plantation with 300-metres of private river frontage, the location of Santani offers not only beautiful views and relaxation, but exceptional trekking opportunities as well. Visit hanging bridges, scenic rivers and ancient temples, perhaps spotting local wildlife or stopping to meditate amid the postcard-perfect scenery.





Complete with a minimalist design to enhance the mountain or garden views, chalets each boast king or twin bedrooms, along with a private terrace or balcony with recycled teakwood safari chairs, and an en suite bathroom with a rain shower. Amenities include a ceiling fan (due to the high altitude and design of the property, air conditioning and heating is not required), hair dryer, in-room safe, tea/coffee making facilities, up-cycled rubber wood lounge chairs and premium toiletries. Wi-Fi is not automatically available but can be requested and is complimentary.
