A minimalist masterpiece nestled in the lush hills outside of Kandy, Santani Wellness Resort is a stylish and contemporary property which is geared towards walking and wellness experiences.
There are 16 Mountain View Chalets at the lodge, all offering spectacular sweeping views over the valley and surrounding hills. The architecture is chic and simplistic with minimal furniture and a neutral colour scheme, ensuring that the focus is always on the views and the detoxifying experiences the resort encourages. All of the chalets also feature private decks with deckchairs, encouraging guests to spend as much time outside as possible.
The dining experience is very much part of the stay at Santani Wellness Resort and the food here is some of the best you'll find in Sri Lanka. In place of a set menu, the chefs will custom-make healthy and nutritious meals to suit the activities and experiences you are enjoying during your stay. When you're not staring dreamily at your dinner plate, take in the magnificent views that take centre stage in the restaurant which has huge windows in place of walls.
As you might expect of a wellness resort, the spa here is fantastic and offers a range of pampering treatments, blending Western favourites - including detoxifying scrubs and hot stone massages - with a range of Ayurvedic practices using vitamin-rich organic oils. Beyond the resort, continue to make wellness your priority while working up a sweat on the walking trails and taking part in nature excursions.
Whether you're feasting on healthy custom-made meals in the resort's stylish restaurant, hiking into the hills, or indulging in pampering treatments in the spa, wellness is almost guaranteed after a stay here.
