This place is excellent, we booked the mountain view through travel agency. THe staff are amazing and the kitchen is staffed with an amazing chef and staff. Great gourmet food. It has a yoga centre, spa and you can do a guided hikes with one of the staff. The only thing that was difficult for us is the drive from Colombo to the resort. Very slow roads and it could take a good 4 hours to reach the resort. Amazing place and highly recommended

Everything about this hotel was outstanding. The customer service was phenomenal. Every single meal was better than what we get at most upscale restaurants in San Francisco. The spa is beautiful - we had great massages. Would love to return!

The drive to Santani is amazing. A village with a very few vehicles and beautiful views. A great welcome from the staff and quite a walk but nice walk to the rooms. The stay overall is what’s amazing. Beautiful views, peaceful and nice people. You could see the knuckles mountain range from the restaurant. View from the room was the best out of all. Waking up for that view was just everything. Food was good and service was good too. The spa was good too. The hot water dip after the massage was the best thing about the spa. No room services though. Best for couples.

This is by far one of the most memorable and relaxing stays we have ever had in any place, in any country. It is difficult to overstate the excellence of our experience with Santani, but we will do our best to describe it.  First of all, the location of Santani is absolutely breathtaking. It is perched on top of a valley surrounded by pristine nature. There was a constant pleasant breeze throughout the day. You are surrounded by bird songs and the gentle rustling of the trees and ever changing clouds. There are few things more magical than waking up (literally) to the panoramic views of the valleys and mountains and the birds in our own privacy.  The design of the restraurant and the lounge area is ultra sleek and simply stunning. The entire dining room is wrapped around with floor to ceiling wooden framed windows allowing for a complete view of the entire surrounding landscape and provides constant breeze from the hills afar. The central building and all rooms are also designed sustainably to take advantage of winds sweeping through the valleys. The spa facilities are equally stunning. Watching the birds roaming around the lawn directly in front of us whilst in the thermal salt pool was just pure tranquility. In addition, the dining is an absolute highlight. At the end of breakfast every day we were asked what we want for the lunch and dinner and were given the option of Sri Lankan or Western cuisine. Each and every dish at each and every meal was perfectly cooked and using the freshest ingredients. The quality of cooking is easily Michelin level. Everything is made at the restaurant, from the bread to butter, compote, granola and various savoury spreads. All of this is accompanied by flawless services. The restaurant staff (and in fact, all staff we have come across) were so warm and genuinely nice and friendly. They have made our experience all the more special and memorable.  We had high expectations for our stays at Santani and it has met and exceeded all of them. We genuinely could not have asked for a better holiday and will definitely return as soon as possible. Thank you, Santani!!  M&J

Stayed for two nights to celebrate a birthday of a friend, she completely trusted my recommendation. From the checkin to checkout everything was perfect. The food, delicious, perfect quantity sizes, beautifully presented. We did one yoga session, one morning walk with the naturalist and mostly enjoyed the good food, the pool and watched the sunrise, sunset and listened to the sounds of nature. Loved all the dips we had with breads, the soups and the huge spread of Sri Lankan dinner, fresh juices, desserts, simply it was definitely a place a foodie must go. The staff was amazing, very accommodating and when I wanted to get some flowers and a cake for my friend, the staff arranged all that. The room is simple, comforatble beds and mountain view chalets have stunning views of the mountains. Bath amenities are too good, and loved the shower! You feel like you are cut off from the rest of the world, and time flies there. My friend and I both loved the stay and everything about Santani. Definitely going back, next time for the spa package. 😁 I am a travel agent and I have some clients visiting Santani once a year, that says it I suppose.

Santani Wellness Resort was an incredible place to stay. The rooms were absolutely magnificent with balconies that overlooked the beautiful mountain landscape. The food was delicious and there are so many activities to do. Wake up for 7am yoga, go for the daily walk to the river, go to the spa, sauna. Will definitely be visiting again soon. - Fi, Rob & Siobhain

Santani isn't one of the best places I've visited simply because it's truly the best place I've ever visited, the services, the smiling staff, and the warmth in that place is like nothing else I've experienced in my life. it's a life changing experience. I cannot describe the taste and the quality of food because nothing can define how natural, delicious, and tasty it is. I would like to thank all of those working there with that much passion, especially Vickum who made this trip so memorable. We are definitely coming back soon, so wait for us guys!

Absolutely stunning place. It’s a piece of heaven on earth. No photos would cause justice to the beauty of the location. Everything has been thought to and carried out to a very highly standard. The rooms are exceptionally clean and is cleaned twice a day by the the amazing staff. The sounds of nature is just so relaxing. Hats off to the amazing chef who creates such great food from local produce. The spa is a must, with the indoor hot water pool, sauna and the steam room. The Ayurvedic treatments are highly recommended. The nature trail is a great way to explore the surrounding and to work out an appetite. It’s the best place to when one needs time off a hustle and bustle of a busy work schedule We just love love love this place

Perfect location in stunning rainforest mountain area. Amazing meals (personalized by the chef, try the granola), free hiking tours to river, free yoga classes for every kind of experience level, extraordinary SPA treatments under the sky (but very expensive), unique and intimate chalets. Air condition by nature (mountain winds, better than electrical stuff), music by the dungle (ear plugs provided, but just listen to the sound of nature)… Feel comfortable, pure, relaxed and easy. 100% recommendation
