The household manager said in passing if I could find anything they could improve upon, to please let him know as they were keen always too get better. Well after 5 nights of trying my hardest to find fault I couldn't help him. The food, courtesy of chef Alexander Zinke, formerly of Nobu and the Savoy was universally excellent, across... More

This hotel was perfect in all ways! The location was truly stunning with incredible views along the coast, overlooked by a large infinity pool. The room was also amazing with a fabulous bathroom and shower area. Just to reiterate, the pool really was out of this world! The staff were very attentive and respectful, making every effort to make our... More

Four of us have just returned from 10 nights at Saman Villas. The first thing to say is that the setting is absolutely lovely. The views are fantastic, and from the other hotels we saw, in a class of its own. We stayed in the one villa suite with pool which was spacious and extremely private. The pool is lovely,... More

We chose to stay at Saman Villa to enjoy peace, quiet, tranquility and great service. We stayed in one of the pool villas on the north side. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the main pool area is stunning. The staff couldn't do enough for you, were very attentive and lovely. The villa was beautiful and the layout perfect with...

We thank the reviewer for their recent stay at Saman Villas. Thank you for commending the location, tranquil atmosphere, open-air bathrooms, food and staff. We regret for the disturbance caused due to the repair work carried out near the canal by the Department of Irrigation. The canal wall had collapsed and it had to be restored immediately, but unfortunately we... More

We are on our last night of 10. This afternoon was the first cloudy one, but we still swam in the sea, which is like a lukewarm bath. From start to finish we have been extremely impressed. We had a superior room which was bigger than we expected. It has a large bathroom, part of which (the shower area) is... More

We were 7 couples who stayed for 3 nights in this amazing resort. We had just completed a 10 day tour of Sri Lanka and decided that this should be our finale. And what a finale!!!! The resort is only 28 villas and is impeccably maintained. The rooms are luxurious and are stocked with all the amenities you may need... More

My wife and I have traveled the world. We always place the greatest importance on resort atmosphere, service and the spirit of staff. At Saman Villas each and every staff member was dedicated to making sure that our 1 week stay was the best possible. Thanks to them, our week was spectacular! The setting of the resort is just great.... More

Food is very good No buffet no all inclusive . Villas on south beach side overlooking the sea . Choose a ground floor villa. Staff are very friendly Spotlessly clean Amazing location The only minor criticism would be the wine list . Too many Chardonnay s , no prosseco The red wine very limited

What a beautiful experience this was! We went here for my birthday dinner and every single thing was just magical. The restaurant is grand with large tables and face a beautifully lit pool area. There are smaller romantic tables designed for smaller groups / couples dotted along the edge of the pool that overlook the coastline of Bentota (remember to... More

We spent 5 days here after spending time in galle. We were on the north side with our pool. What an amazing place - the views were stunning, the beach on either side is very under developed so you have amazing views. The rooms are very spacious with living area, bed, dressing room and outside bathroom with a fabulous bath.... More
