We stayed 2 nights at this resort. As a frequent traveler who has experienced many beautiful views including the Adriatic in Dubrovnik and the Matterhorn in Zermatt, I have to say that I have never been to a place with such a wonderful ambience in that one got a 360 degree view of nature. It was a pleasure to sit in the balcony and to also walk around the property. The staff were so friendly and helpful. A special thank you to the restaurant manager Mr, Bandara, the chefs and our wonderful and knowledgeable naturalist/guide, Damitha. The waterfall tour was absolutely fantastic (I wouldn't recommend the last waterfall unless you were very fit and willing to jump on slippery rocks but its nonetheless superb to visit the last site and have a picnic on the rocks. Usually I would have said I missed tv but here, blending in with nature was enough. Would love to visit again in the summer when I can have a dip in the pool (slightly too cold in December). The food was fantastic and beautifully presented. The spa was absolutely impressive to walk around in as it went on 3 levels (I am not usually a spa person but again, would love to try that out in another visit).

Santani is an award winning resort and spa for a very good reason..it’s excellent. Mahesh the resident manager to his staff are just great. The food is one of the best, if not the best I have tasted in Sri Lanka. The menus are discussed with you before hand. The desserts are just awesome. The yoga teacher ashok is so good and his lessons are great. We also did the river walk with sandun and he was also very good. The spa facilities are also great All in all it’s a great place to rest and relax. The air is so fresh the sunsets are absolutely amazing.

Was here for two nights and I truly felt sad to leave. Starting from the location to accommodation and it’s fantastic staff, this place is nothing less than brilliant. The food is exceptional. If you are looking for a place to relax and to get pampered this is the place. Their spa which includes a thermal pool, sauna and steam room is great! Also you much try out the yoga sessions even if you have never done yoga before. The hotel has naturalists which will take you on hikes down to the river as well. My recommendation is to spend Atleast 5 days here. Absolutely worth it.

They served us herbal drinks with jaggery upon arriving at the hotel and one of the main highlights was the food. Sri Lankan dinner was served with ten different varieties of curries and pickles, cooked to perfection in authentic Sri Lankan style. Room was welcoming and cosy with a four poster bed and a balcony overlooking the lush greenery. Staff was very attentive and courteous. We really enjoyed our stay at Santani. Would love to go there again and enjoy the beauty and the hospitality.

Imagine a place where the earth meets a sky; where misty colored mountains lay at your feet in a cushiony billow of cloud, where architecture honors its location in a delicate design that seems to float in the sky. Couple this with a carefully curated, customized gastronomical experience that will captivate you with its daring innovation and creativity; a staff so focused on providing quality service that they anticipate your needs even before you articulate them; and guided nature walks that makes you realize anew the wonder that has rightly led others to call Sri Lanka the pearl of Asia; and a stay that leaves you revitalized and refreshed with wellness and well being provided by some of the best Ayurvedic doctors in the country...that is Santani Wellness Resort and Spa. Thank you for making my stay so memorable: in particular wonderful chef Wajira, who made sure that he listened attentively to my needs and delivered a series of masterfully executed ‘meals’ (I call them enchanting taste adventures); Bandura whose personal care, professionalism and attentiveness showed the best of what you can expect in service excellence; and Damitha who provided well-informed nature walks, and who shared my passion for bird watching. I will definitely be back!
