Lasting wellness is achieved by bringing oneself into balance, with nature as well as through the nurture we give ourselves and receive from others. Meaning “in harmony with,” Santani offers a uniquely restorative sanctuary where this belief guides everything they do. Wellness programmes in Ayurveda, detox and cleansing, yoga and relaxation combine on site pampering and rejuvenation with enlightened learning for healthy living long after you leave the invigorating surroundings.
Harmonising health science innovations from around the world with the most effective treatments of Sri Lankan Ayurveda, Santani offers a thoughtful, sustainable approach to wellness: which will pamper your body to revitalize you there and educate your mind so that you leave with healthy habits and practices which allow you to enjoy greater mental, spiritual and physical well-being for years to come. The tri-level spa tucked into the hillside’s natural contours has been thoughtfully designed with holistic wellness in mind. You enter on the ground level to the reception and consultation rooms, then descend as if becoming one with the earth as you enter the hydrotherapy level. To warm up your body before treatments, this level houses a steam room, the cedar wood sauna with its a glass wall looking onto emerald paddy fields to the Knuckles mountain range, and the open-air thermal salt soak pool. Deeper into nature, the lowest level divides into four treatment rooms all of which are open onto the surrounding paddy fields.
Sixteen stand-alone, single-bedrooms each extending to a balcony and approximately 500 square feet. These can accommodate two people only. Each stylish, elevated room faces into the surrounding jungle valley and the stunning mountains beyond. In addition, there are two double bedroom villas suitable for friends travelling together and for families with children 12-16 years of age. The double room villas face the lush paddy terraces of Santani. Each room features up-cycled rubber wood lounge chairs, recycled teakwood safari chairs on the balcony, extra-large pillows, 100% cotton, high thread count sheets, complimentary minibar, coffee and tea making facilities, personal safe and two closets.
Choice and freedom are essential to sustainable wellness. Whether you like juicing, vegetarian, vegan and raw foods or you prefer heartier wholesome fare, Santani is about taking pleasure in the locally sourced, organic food you eat there. Healthy, nutritious and naturally delicious personalised dishes are thoughtfully prepared by Santani’s experienced, internationally trained chefs. In place of a printed menu for everyone, Santani’s 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.
