We selected this property because of its treatments. When we arrived they mentioned they were just available for the guests that had booked a package. This was shattering for us and very disappointing. The rest of our statly, food and staff was faboulous.

Good hotel, but different
The hotel concept is very nice, and fits to honeymoon vacation. The food was great, the best food I eat in Sri Lanka, the chef, and the restaurant team where helpful, and fit themself to us. The uncomfortable thing is that there is no a/c system in the room, and it’s really hard to sleep with the bugs and mosquitoes that gets into the room. Although it’s hotel that promote wellness, choosing a/c should be the customer choose. Thanks for the all Santani team, made wonderful job.

I loved everything--EVERYTHING--about my stay. The service was outstanding, the view was amazing, and the food was delicious. The staff bent over backwards to make sure I was comfortable and happy. I had some spa treatments, which were fabulous, and the morning and evening yoga sessions were enjoyable, too. The design of the hotel is incredible. It's simple and unpretentious but elegant. Design-wise, it's one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever seen. I can't wait to return.
