This has to be one of the best hotels ever. The architecture, design, concept and layout is impressive. Healthy fine dining food which is absolutely mind blowing and praised by all guests. Marvellous spa and the best treatments.

About Santani

Set in the mountainous area in the North East of Kandy, this 48-acre resort was named after the Sanskrit word meaning 'in harmony with'. This highly sustainable and eco friendly resort aims to bring oneself into balance with nature. Set on an undulating hillside, many of the chalets jut out from the mountain, creating a feeling of being truly integrated with nature. The minimalistic interiors leave your focus on the surrounding environment, whilst the personalised gourmet cuisine emphasises the attention on personal wellness.

Whether you choose to spend your days relaxing and unwinding in the hilltop infinity pool and indulging in some of the best Ayuverdic massages, or participating in yoga and hiking in the Knuckles Mountain Range, this award-winning hotel will certainly leave you feeling more relaxed and rejuvenated.

How to get there

When to go

December to April is the best time to enjoy the area of Kandy as the weather is dry and mostly pleasant during this time. This is the ideal time to sightsee and enjoy trekking in the beautiful mountains. During May to September, Sri Lanka experiences two monsoon seasons. Yala monsoon is between May and August and brings rain to the South-western part of Kandy, making trekking and hiking difficult. October to November is when Sri Lanka experiences the Maha monsoon, again, making hiking and trekking difficult.
