This is a scenic beach resort with very caring staff to ensure a great stay. The food is amazing, the spa has some very unique treatments and the view from the infinity pool is very unique. We spent most of our time in the hotel even though we had a few activities planned. One of the best beach vacation I... More

This is a wonderful beach resort that exceeded every expectation. Everything was perfect, from the room, outside shower/bathroom, beautiful beach view, amazing food, and friendly staff. Loved the culture and serene ambience. Really look forward to going back again one day.

We stayed for the final part of our honeymoon, and are so pleased with our choice! The room was gorgeous, the private swimming pool was a luxury, the main pool was beautiful, the food was delicious and most of all the staff were happy, friendly, helpful and considerate. The people at Saman Villas are what makes it such an incredible... More

Stunning. Exceptional service. Beautiful food. We stayed for a week on our honeymoon and it was paradise. The room was spacious, very clean and with a breathtaking view. The outside bathroom was just awesome. We had spent the previous week travelling around Sri Lanka, so to have a whole week in this one hotel was heaven. We enjoyed a couples... More

This hotel was the perfect setting for our first anniversary celebration weekend. The hotel has been around for years but has been lovingly maintained and is full of smiling, experienced, obviously happy staff. We have stayed here several times as it is one of the best beach hotels close to Colombo, and the service is outstanding. The food was very... More

Saman Villas is one of those phenomenal places that you very rarely come across and that you quite simply never want to leave. We chose to stay at Saman Villas at the end of our two week honeymoon. The beginning of our holiday had been tiring and exhausting and so we chose Saman to relax and rejuvenate before we returned... More

An absolute great place! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, Nirosha does a great job being the host and welcome person and the guys at the pool and restaurant are superb! You wont miss a thing, but cry some tears when leaving. The food is outstanding, my Caesar salad was a daily routine almost and can stand any competition... More

Saman villas is over priced for what it is but once you settle in to the luxury you soon forget this and start to enjoy the beauties of Sri Lanka. What springs to mind the most when I write this review is how wonderfully happy the locals are and how friendly and helpful everyone is. So much attention to detail... More

The rooms are to a very high standard, as is the food and the spa is well worth going to. All in all we thought this was a great place to stay for a chill out. Only word of warning is you probably want to stay in the hotel and wander on the beach as there isn't much to neighbouring... More
