In 2020, we introduced the #OnlyatSani Protocol, our dynamic commitment to guest health and safety for their luxury escapes. With discrete, yet thorough measures throughout resort operations, the Sani Sanctuary welcomed 10,000 guests to enjoy our natural surroundings and saw zero cases of Covid all season. Our 100% successful, all-tested environment includes onsite healthcare, the latest technology & in-resort testing, creating a protected space where guests can feel free and safe in the Sani Sanctuary.


With testing carried out for guests and employees, Sani Resort’s private setting and extensive space offers a Covid-Safe Sanctuary for families, a mini self-contained world within itself. A boundless space inside and out with the Sani Forest and the Sani Wetlands offering a wide range of outdoor activities in unique natural surroundings.

Freedom of Space: The Great Outdoors

A majestic 1,000 acre eco-reserve with an endless range of outdoor experiences to enjoy, 7km of soft, sandy beaches, 110 hectares of protected Sani Wetlands to explore, and over 20km of lush forest trails to adventure by bike or on foot. A wide range of al fresco private dining options are available in your private garden, on the beach or in a secluded natural setting; the great outdoors has never been so precious.

Testing of Guests & Employees

As part of Sani Resort’s protocol, Rapid Antigen COVID testing will be carried out for employees before the opening of the hotels, and on a regular basis following the opening.
