Why we like this Hotel

This property is architecturally impressive, perched on the side of a vast valley covered in tea plantations. It doesn’t detract from its surroundings however, rather it blends in perfectly – the name ‘Santani’ is the Sanskrit for ‘in harmony’ after all! Not only are the spa programmes enlightening whilst you are being inspired by these surroundings, but what you learn stays with helping you make permeant changes to your health and lifestyle. I highly recommend the sunrise yoga and watching the colours of the surrounding hillsides change as you practise!
