Viola Jurres-Bos

Kandy, Sri Lanka

I would recommend this place to anyone who needs some rest, nature and a moment to recharge. Food is fantastic, delicious! De views and sunset is breathtaking. Very friendly people. The houses are very nice, big beds, fantastic view, you can hear the sounds of outside very good so it looks like you are sleeping outside (very soothing). Only disadvantage is that its far away from Kandy (1-1,5 h drive). I rarely seen a place where it's so sereen and 'Zen'. You can easily be here for a week and lose track of time. 2 nights was too short!!

Colombo, Sri Lanka

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 been 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!

A truly magical and relaxing place !!! Go to be one with nature, enjoy the wonderful view, the yoga classes and the food... OMG !!! Better than some 2 Michelin restaurants ! You can choose from Sri Lankan food or "European menu" and each are perfectly done and the portions are HUGE !!! The architecture of the buildings is breathtaking and blends seamlessly with the surrounding nature. The pictures don't do justice on how beautiful it is... You will cleanse your body but also your mind. And the staff are just pampering you with attention and kindness. We didn't want to leave and this was one of the highlights of our visit to Sri Lanka ! Worth every penny !Congratulations to the owner for having such vision with this place !

Kandy, Sri Lanka

This place is absolutely stunning and out of this world. The staff is so amazingly helpful and attentive, specially Mr. Bandara. The food is some of the yummiest and healthiest food we have ever tasted and all credits to the chef Wajira Gamage. Mountain chalets view, our anniversary dinner set up, yoga sessions, morning nature walk to hulu river and spa treatments were pure bliss. Pictures and words don't even do justice. Thank you Santani!! ?
