Location

Area Info: Aratenna Estate, Werapitiya Kandy, Kandy, Sri Lanka

Address: Aratenna Estate, Werapitiya Kandy

Area Info

Just a hundred kilometers north east of Colombo in a valley ringed by protective tall peaks nestles Sri Lanka's hill capital and most beautiful city. 488 meters above sea level, Kandy enjoys a cooler climate to the resorts on the beaches.

Kandy was the last stronghold of the Sinhala kings. The glory of the past is still manifest in the splendid audience chamber, palace and court-yards.
The focal point of Kandy, however, is the golden roofed Dalada Maligawa the sacred Temple of the Tooth, containing the Tooth Relic of the Buddha, Sri Lanka's most important religious relic. There are daily ceremonies of homage to the Tooth Relic, each attracting pilgrims.

The laidback "capital" of the hill country and the historical bastion of Buddhist power is built around a peaceful lake. It has a distinctive architectural character, thanks to its gently sloping tiled roofs. The town center is a delightful compendium of old shops, noise, buses, markets and hotels.

Every year in August or late July, depending on the phases of the moon a replica of the Relic is taken in procession round the city accompanied by exotically costumed dancers, drummers and over 80 elephants. The event marks one of the most spectacular pageants in Sri Lanka, the Kandy Perahera.

Visit Kalapuraya in the beautiful Dumbara Valley eight kilometers from Kandy, where descendants of the ancient craftsmen still create items of rare elegance in metal and wood. There are many shrines and temples in and around Kandy, where you will see rare paintings, frescoes, wood and stone carvings.

Just four miles away from Kandy, at Peradeniya, is the home of the world famous Royal Botanical Gardens - the most beautiful in the world and begun as a pleasure garden by a Sinhala King. Every variety tropical and temperate tree and flower is cultivated here and special houses with orchids and cacti are too beautiful to be true.

Kandy is an exciting place for shopping with souvenirs in wood, copper, silver, brass, ebony and bronze. Ceramics, lacquer work, handlooms, batiks, jewellery and rush and reed-ware can also be purchased. The Kandyan Art Association & Cultural Centre beside the lake has good displays of local crafts and an auditorium for popular dance performances.

Restaurants (Eat and Drink)

Nestled between the hills and rainforest in the heart of Sri Lanka, Santani exists for the singular purpose of nourishing your soul. When it comes to actual nutrition, we believe balance rather than extremes, and in the value of pleasure in our lives. Whether you like juicing, vegetarian, vegan and raw foods or you prefer heartier traditional fare, Santani is about freedom and choices which are yours to make among our nutritious and delicious food served in our elevated restaurant with capacity for 60 guests and at our open-air main pavilion lounge with its biodynamic wine & fresh juice bar

Your all-inclusive resort experience at Santani includes a personalised approach to gourmet wellness cuisine. In place of a printed menu for everyone, Santani’s experienced, internationally trained chefs prepare your healthy natural dishes according to a custom meal plan created in co-ordination with the Head of Wellness and Santani’s in-house Ayurvedic doctor based upon your health goals and physical condition. Personalised meal plans draw upon the most recent scientific research in three main areas:

Ketogenic
Our low-carbohydrate Keto meal plan comprises certified meat, freshly caught seafood and garden fresh vegetables, most from our own organic garden. Santani does not use any processed or refined foods and the Keto diet excludes starch-rich foods such as rice, breads, yams and pasta.

This newly popular approach to weight loss focuses on re-balancing the body’s energy usage through food. When we eat foods high in carbohydrates, the body produces glucose and insulin. Glucose is the easiest molecule for the body to convert and use as the body’s main source of energy. Insulin is produced to process that glucose in the bloodstream. As glucose is acting as the primary energy source, fats are not needed. They are therefore stored in the body.

This low carb diet is carefully designed to bring your body into the metabolic state of ketosis, a natural process the body initiates when food consumption, or in this case carbohydrate intake, is low. During this state, we produce ketones from the breakdown of fats in the liver to be used as energy.

The Keto Diet substitutes carbohydrates for healthy fats, so that the body instead of storing fat, the body begins to burn ketones as the main energy source and stored fat will be burned away.
Sample Dishes:

Pumpkin velouté with duck confit, caramelised apple and sage.
Citrus and beetroot cured pink salmon with tarragon and horseradish sauce.
Grilled Australian grass fed beef tenderloin steak, herb layered summer squash cake and wild mushroom puree with micro-herbs and tamarind sauce.
Multi-texture strawberry platter with homemade pepper ice cream.

Ayurvedic Vegetarian
Santani’s modern approach to the traditional Sri Lanka Ayurveda diet comprises fresh foods representing the six Ayurvedic tastes – sweet, salty, sour, pungent, bitter, and astringent. This time proven practice ensures that all major nutrients are included, and prioritised according to your Ayurvedic body type known as the Doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Every one of us is born with a unique balance of these doshas; every activity and function of our mind and body is dependent upon the balanced or unbalanced state of our doshas. This diet, designed to cleanse the body of impurities and thus rebalance the doshas, encourages energy stimulation and calms the mind, which makes it a valuable tool in elevating mood, energy and metabolism.
Sample Dishes

Fennel barley and citrus fruit salad with toasted sesame dressing.
Rocket lettuce, pine nuts and goat cheese tortellini in a tree tomato consommé.
Aubergine and cashew nut filo parcels with local spices and olu rice, blushed tomatoes, garlic chilli sauce.
Traditional Sri Lankan rice & curry with organic vegetables and chutney.
Trio of French crème brûlée — masala chai, raspberry cream cheese and jasmine tea & white chocolate.

Detox
The Santani approach to detox and cleansing is still very much about gourmet dining and fulfilment. Our non-juice detox diet and the raw juice & smoothies programme are restricted short term diet plans which focus on eliminating caffeine, alcohol, salt, sugar and processed foods. The purpose of this diet plan is primarily to support and cleanse the liver, intestinal tract, kidneys, lungs and skin through the elimination of toxins in the body.
Sample Dishes

Spicy drumstick soup with roasted jack seeds.
Indian pennyworth and bulgur salad with tamarillo and grapefruit salsa.
Crunchy banana blossom salad with shredded coconut & tamarind dressing.
Young coconut, passionfruit and basil detox juice.
Healing & calming smoothie of almonds, vanilla dates and black chia seeds.
Deep cleansing smoothie with lemon, lime, chilli, ginger and kithul treacle.
Blood cleansing & liver detox juice with wheatgrass, green apple and ginger.

Additional information

Ambalamas
We chose to name our contemporary dwellings for the Sri Lankan word meaning ‘place of rest.’ Historically, pilgrims and traders moved around this sun-kissed island on foot. Simple shelters called ambalama came into being, offering these travellers somewhere safe to rest up for the next leg of a long journey. This human need to rest has not changed; today’s travellers too are in need of a place to rest up, along the journey of life.

Stylish and utterly comfortable, our interiors too are deliberately minimal. As in ancient Buddhist meditation caves in the mountains surrounding Santani, this lack of distraction allows you to focus your mind solely on slowing it down.

To further support your efforts to ‘reset,’ our Ambalamas do not have televisions. While digital detox is a key component of the Santani experience, we do offer in-room WiFi on demand.

By blurring the distinction between inside and out, these private retreats invite you to rest, relax or meditate while inhaling the pure fresh air and taking in the pristine, truly inspiring scenery around you.

Sixteen stand-alone, single-bedrooms each extending to a balcony and approximately 500 square feet. These can accommodate two people only. Each stylish, elevated room faces into the surrounding jungle valley and the stunning mountains beyond.

In addition, there are two double bedroom villas Suitable for friends travelling together and for families with children 12-16 years of age. The double room villas face the lush paddy terraces of Santani.

Each room features up-cycled rubber wood lounge chairs, recycled teakwood safari chairs on the balcony, extra large pillows, 100% cotton, high thread count sheets, complimentary minibar, coffee and tea making facilities, personal safe and two closets.
