Santani Wellness Resort, Kandy
Guests looking to switch off will fall in love with the wellness retreat of Santani. A harmonious Zen design sets the scene for healing treatments with the house Ayurvedic Doctor, cleansing tea rituals, and endless elemental views. The destination spa is all steam rooms and salt pools, and guests are encouraged to unplug all devices and let the calming hand of nature do its work. From morning yoga sessions to afternoon waterfall baths, Santani is all about the balance.
Spanning 48 acres of a private tea estate close to Kandy – you couldn’t ask for a better setting for a detox. Glass walls have been worked into the calming design so that the dense forests, mountain folds, and paddy fields are ever present. Blurred lines between indoor and outdoor living are a welcome reminder of the beauty of Sri Lanka. If you can bear to tear yourself away from the serene grace of Santani you will find endless hiking trails, temples, and meditation caves surrounding your hillside retreat.
Your Room + Facilities
Each ambalama dwelling delivers a stripped back design woven with contemporary cool to calm the mind. The single bedroom homes cling to the edge of the rolling hillside, offering wake up calls to admire the misty jungle from your own balcony. Every inch of the ambalamas are designed with the environment in mind- expect recycled woods, soft cotton bedding, and tea making facilities.
Few islands in the world offer the diversity of Sri Lanka. From the vibrant + chaotic capital of Colombo, the central plains of the Cultural Triangle, tea plantations, exotic wildlife in national parks to coastlines of palm-fringed crescent shaped beaches.
On a different latitude but just as diverse and a little more cosmopolitan, Singapore has redefined itself as one of the great culinary cities of the world to be enjoyed over several days + not just a stopover.
