Santani
Kandy

Perched in the luscious mountains near the city of Kandy in Central Sri Lanka, Santani is a dedicated wellness retreat whose every detail is crafted to nurture well-being and serenity. The site was carefully chosen to provide a sense of seclusion, tranquillity and closeness to nature, whilst not being too far from modern amenities. The hill-top location also offers stunning mountain views and refreshing breezes.

Santani is the epitome of minimalist luxury, based on an architectural concept of open spaces inspiring freedom of the mind. Comprising 16 stand-alone room units with balconies and two interconnecting room units with private pool, the accommodation is elevated on elegant stilts with timber flooring, whitewashed walls and full-height glazing. The unencumbered views of the rugged surroundings are simply stunning.

Naturally the resort features an impressive spa, also formed with Santani’s signature minimalist and natural style. There is an extensive range of wellness treatments and activities available, including fitness, yoga, nutrition, therapy, meditation, detox, cleansing, cooking classes and excursions, to name a few.

In commitment to Santani’s ideology of detox from modern’s life’s stresses, there is no Wi-fi or TV available in guests rooms, however there is a communal media room with internet facilities and theatre. This does not, however, result in a lack of things to do. At Santani you can relax in stillness or in activity, with hiking trails, river natural swimming pools, tea plantations and an infinity lap pool. There is also an elevated restaurant, main pavilion lounge and outdoor sitting lounge with camp fires, offering an assortment of breathtakingly beautiful locations for a quiet moment alone or to socialise with other guests.

True to its name, meaning ‘harmony’ in Sanskrit, Santani is the embodiment of harmony with nature and the perfect haven in which to achieve harmony in mind, body and soul.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
Bill Bryson

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
