Destinasian Selects Santani to the Luxe List 2017

The DestinAsian Magazine, which was established in 2001 is a leading award winning travel magazine in the Asia Pacific Region. Every year the publication picks a select number of properties to the Luxe List, which features the best new hotels in the region.

The properties are selected based on their location, unique character and top notch service. Santani was among 2 Sri Lankan properties selected to this year’s list.

Vickum Nawagamuwage, CEO of Santani stated “As we have said previously, this kind of global coverage really makes all the hard work worth it. We spent a lot of time challenging the status quo and building a property that was truly different, and publications around the world have been recognizing this. At the end of the day, each selection and each accolade is extremely humbling, and we are proud to be strengthening Sri Lanka’s position on the global luxury map.”

Santani has received significant international recognition in the last 12 months, with publications ranging from Forbes to Conde Nast Traveller among others selecting the property and showcasing the unique aspects the resort adds to the Sri Lankan landscape. Chamindra Goonewardene, head of marketing at Santani added “The entire team at Santani strives to provide every single client with an unmatched experience and recognition of this nature is testament to the service provided, as well as the way this unique concept has been brought to life. It’s truly a game-changing property, and we look forward to further strengthening both the Santani brand and the Sri Lankan brand.”

Since it’s opening in September 2016, Santani has been creating an unmatched level of hype in terms of a new property, and has gone beyond just that by providing a unique experience through the architecture, the setting, the spa and the fine dining. Santani is located in Werapitiya, which is just less than an hour away from Kandy and overlooks both the Hunnasgiriya and Knuckles Mountain ranges. More details can be accessed at Santani website
