We went to the hotel during Easter week, and it was incredible. I especially recommend the yoga with "yoga reiki meditation". Also to say that the food at the hotel is impressive, especially the desserts. And very good attention to the guests.

We stayed at the Santani for 3 nights in March 2021 and reached the resort exhausted with the multiple covid tests, flights and excruciatingly slow road journey, but as soon as we reached the resort we were blown away by the harmony in which the resort is set. The food is spot on a with options for both the conscious eater to the indulgent. Several guests were signed up for 2-3 weeks detox experience whereas in the short span that we spent at the resort we decided to keep it balanced. Activities include Yoga in the morning ( special mention to the star instructor Saman who so effortlessly supports the whole experience) followed by a sumptuous and fresh breakfast, swim in the gorgeous infinity pool, and hours of time at hand to read, meditate, talk or just chill listening to mountain birds. In most of our urban lifestyles, we crave a dose of nature and introspection and by the end of this trip we left completely recharged but heartbroken to leave the place. I highly recommend this place at the same time wanted to keep it hidden to get more of it before the tourists get there. Great job done by Mahesh and his entire team.

After one of the most challenging years of our lives with the Covid-19 pandemic, arriving at Santani was everything we needed to fill our souls with goodness. The people, the food, the scenery, the spa, the room, the pool, the yoga -- we felt on top of the world. And the high measures to ensure our safety was much appreciated. We highly recommend Santani and will certainly return.

We just stayed at Santani for two weeks and it is an amazing place. We have done a personalized detox program which was a great experience. The food is great - even when you are on the detox program:-) Thanks a lot to the whole team - everyone at Santani is doing an outstanding job.
