Food & Drink

Santani’s experienced, internationally trained chefs prepare healthy natural dishes created in co-ordination with the Head of Wellness and Santani’s in-house Ayurvedic doctor.

Those staying on wellness packages dine on personalised meals, while everyone else tucks into balanced, low-carb daily changing set menus that focus on re-balancing the body’s energy usage through food.

Meals consist of certified meat, freshly caught seafood and garden-fresh vegetables, from Santani’s own organic garden.


Wellness consultants will create a personalised programme for guests to get the most out of the marvellous facilities throughout their stay.

An array of tailored therapies and treatments to soothe the body, mind and soul are available from thermal salt baths, massages and meditation sessions. The spa is also home to a large steam room, sauna and infinity swimming pool that can be used to each guest’s content.

The open plan setting provides a serene ambience with wooded views and breezes to cool and calm.


The secluded retreat is near the Hulu Ganga river, multiple forest reserves and a nature sanctuary and is located around an hour’s drive north east of Kandy.
