Santani Wellness Retreat, Kandy, Sri Lanka
Luxury Ayurveda wellness sanctuary surrounded by nature in Sri Lanka's Hill Country
7 night full board wellness programmes from £2,995pp sharing, including flights and transfers
Spanning over 100 acres, Santani is Sri Lanka's finest spa and wellness retreat, specialising in anti-ageing, detox and weight loss programmes. It's a peaceful haven enveloped by an abundance of natural beauty: a place to re-connect, slow the pace and gain perspective. Tucked away in the hills, this hideaway is an hour from the sacred and historic city of Kandy in the heart of the Hill Country.
Stylish and comfortable, Santani’s 20 guest rooms are deliberately minimalistic to help encourage rest. Each elevated room boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, inviting natural light and the beauty of the surrounding landscape in. The private balconies command views to the distant mountains and make the perfect spot for quiet relaxation close to nature. A digital-detox approach is encouraged here, and while wi-fi is available on demand, the guest rooms do not include a television.
Activities & Experiences
During your stay at Santani, you may wish to undertake one of the treatment packages on offer. These packages are totally personalised to create a wellness schedule that will ensure you reach your goals at a pace that suits you best. During the rest of your time, relax by the pool, go hiking through the hills or take in some of the cultural highlights visiting a tea estate, heading to Kandy or taking in the wildlife of Sri Lanka at Wasgamuwa wildlife park. Whatever your intentions or goals, Santani will leave you feeling refreshed, both in mind and soul.
Facilities & Services
The spa at Santani includes thermal salt bath, steam room, sauna and several treatment rooms overlooking beautiful terraced paddy fields. There's a tranquil open-sided yoga pavilion and 24m infinity pool with beautiful panoramic views. The sleek, light-filled main pavilion with it's lounge and bar is great for enjoying a drink, whilst the elevated restaurant is perfect for all your dining requirements.
Weather & Seasons
Year round destination. Because the Hill Country it so high up it rarely gets unbearably hot. The months of December to April are probably the best time to visit, as temperatures rise to around 28C during the day but cool down at night. During the monsoon season from October to December you can expect heavy downpours. June to September are the driest months here, when there’s almost no rain at all.
It's a 10 hour 30 minute direct flight to Colombo from London, followed by a 3 hour transfer.
