Sri Lankan retreat brand Santani Wellness Resorts has joined forces with the Oman Tourism Development Company (Omran Group) to develop and operate two new locations in Oman, marking its international debut outside of Sri Lanka.

The resorts, located in the Jabal Shams in Ad Dakhiliyah and Dhofar Governorates, will encompass a total of 182 accommodations and adhere to high-level sustainability standards.

Unveiled at the ITB 2024 travel trade show in Berlin, the projects result from a new strategic partnership between Santani and Omran Group – the Sultanate of Oman's executive arm for tourism development.

Omran Group says the partnership will enhance Oman’s position as a leading destination for sustainable tourism and wellness and has promising prospects for the future of wellness tourism in the country.

The collaboration is expected to create significant economic benefits, including job creation, and is being pitted to become a model for sustainable development and wellness tourism in Oman and beyond.

Vickum Nawagamuwage, Santani CEO, added: “Our shared vision for health, wellbeing and environmental stewardship will allow us to provide unparalleled wellness experiences while preserving the locations' natural beauty and cultural heritage."

Santani, which derives its name from the Sanskrit term signifying 'in harmony with,' was established in 2016 and draws inspiration from Sri Lankan Ayurveda traditions.

With three existing retreats in Sri Lanka and ambitious plans for eight additional properties (including the Omani outposts), Santani’s rollout is intended to provide authentic and consistent wellness experiences, empowering guests to rejuvenate and reconnect with themselves wherever they venture.

At the core of Santani's philosophy lies a holistic approach to wellness, blending pampering experiences designed to revitalise the body with educational initiatives aimed at fostering long-term habits to benefit mental, spiritual and physical wellbeing.

Santani says its upcoming destinations in Oman are being designed to blend harmoniously with their natural rugged environment, offering a sanctuary for transformative wellness experiences while adhering to the highest standards of sustainability.

Focused on stress management, detoxification, yoga and weight management, programming will be tailored to individual needs and designed to promote holistic wellbeing.
