An hour long trek to the bottom of the property will take the more adventurous souls to the Hulu River, where bathing spots have been marked out for the guests. Have a long, refreshing ‘river bath’ (as the locals call it) after a vigorous yoga session or simply sit and take in the sights and splashes the river has to offer.

Minimalist Luxury

The best part about Santani is how seamlessly the outside flows into inside. The rooms have pane glass doors that open up beautiful vistas and are replete with every modern luxury necessary. Any special requirements are eagerly accommodated. Everything from the white linen to dark recliners and cabinets are designed to calm the mind and lay emphasis on the view outside.

The resort is harmoniously integrated into the remnants of an old estate and the forest, so you might see barking deer or even wild boars at night. The sounds of nature hearken back to the days when man and nature existed without conflict and you will wake up to the musical notes of numerous birds in the morning.

Refreshingly Cool

Refreshingly Cool

Situated in the hill country, the weather is always refreshingly cool and the air sharp. The mist wreathes itself into mesmerizing shapes at dawn and nightfall lingers over dusk before plunging into inky black skies. Everything seems designed to keep you refreshed and comfortable.

Tranquil Eyes

From there, you get an almost 360⁰ view of the Dumbara valley. The rolling hills seem endless and unlike most other resorts, it is exactly like in the website. You can feel your eyes soften and adjust to the green expanse, relaxing as it takes in the breathtaking view.

Reconnect to Earth

Reconnect to Earth

Once you’ve checked in, you walk to the main building through a lush forest path designed to deliberately disconnect you from the busy world outside. All you hear is bird call and wind in the trees. Few people wear shoes; guests are encouraged to reconnect with nature in the most organic way possible: bare feet on grass.
