Everything was perfect in this hotel, from the excellent service to the beautiful grounds. What a view!! The hotel rise above a rock overlooking the powerful ocean on both sides, we woke up every morning with a full view on the sea... Probably one of the best hotels in Sri Lanka, worth the spending. We stayed there for 3 nights,... More

We just completed a magical holiday in Sri Lanka with a three night stay here. You won't be prepared for what awaits you when you pull off the coast road - a simply stunning location. The hotel has uninterrupted views of two long beaches and the ocean. We stayed in a beautiful room with lounge area, balcony and outside bathroom... More

Just right for a romantic getaway, often used for weddings and honeymoons. Not us though, we stayed for 5 nights as part of a tour of the indian ocean countries. This was a delightful place, with comfortable villas and plunge pool. Easy access to the sea. Good food and lovely staff. It is some way away from the large towns... More

My wife and I had the most relaxing stay at Saman Villas. We just wanted some time to chill out and this was the most perfect spot. Beautiful rooms (we had a basic one) overlooking to sea, service was excellent and the villas are based with long beaches either side so perfect for long beach walks.

It's an ideal place if you want to appreciate mother nature's beauty, it has a massive lush enclosed garden and the room we got has its very own swimming pool overlooking the vast Indian ocean. You wake up to the sound of sea waves. Breakfast is just superb. Chef Philip was an extraordinary addition to the Saman Villas experience as... More

Location, location, location! This resort has the most spectacular setting imaginable: High on a rock above the ocean, with two endless, beautiful tropical beaches that stretch on both sides as far as the eye can see. However, what makes this resort really special is the amazing attention to detail and all the extras offered that I have rarely experienced in... More

Tranquil sanctuary… absolutely gorgeous! We stayed in Saman Villas for two nights – it was marvelous! Great view of the beach, nice infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean, scrumptious food and the most romantic dinner on a rock, decorated with lanterns and candles. Our room was cozy, with a superb view of the beach. The large windows allowed natural light... More

Just returned from Saman Villas: + points: Amazing location on probably the best part of beach in Bentota, well appointed comfortable rooms with the quietest aircon ever, good spa treatment, tasty huge breakfasts - points: NOT INFORMED OF CONSTRUCTION WORKS RIGHT NEXT TO THE ROOM THEY GAVE US! Construction starts 6am-7pm so don't expect a good night sleep if you're... More

Saman Villas is probably the most Luxurious place you can go around Bentota, and I've seen quite a few of the places around Benotota. We stayed for 5 nights in a De Luxe Suite with Private Pool from 20th to 26th of february 2014. This is the most wonderful, pictoresque and luxurious place one could imagine. Everything from the moment... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Saman Villas is laid out on a magnificent rocky headland dividing two long, surf-swept golden beaches. Close by is a sleepy fishing village but you would not know it, the only sounds are sea gulls' cries and the surf below. The resort is inspired by ancient Sri Lankan architecture. The restaurants, bars and villa suites are all angled to take full advantage of the sea shore vista either side of the headland. A terraced garden draws the eye to a dramatic infinity-edge pool. ... more   less
