We spent 3 wonderful days in Saman Villas and we'd love to go again. Beautiful location overlooking the ocean, very spacious rooms beautifully designed. I loved the open shower (private and open to the sky). Excellent and friendly staff responsive to any need we had. When we reserved the room they emailed me asking about our dietary preferences and they... More

We have just come back from Sri Lanka and this was by far the best place we stayed. They spoiled us rotten and their honeymoon package was amazing. Their chef Clifford makes the best food I have ever eaten and I have eaten in some very good places. Amazing room, views and outstanding service. Would go back in a heartbeat.... More

Second visit and we will go back again on our next visit to Sri Lanka. Staff are very friendly, from room boys to reception and waiters, nothing is too much a problem for them. Food is excellent and varied each day. Location is ideal for access to Galle Fort, only 1 hour 20 mins south. Best to have a private... More

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
