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

I can only hope I get another chance to stay here again.. We had a villa with pool and were so impressed with the lovely furniture and room features, not mention the jaw dropping view facing... More

Where do we start.. The resort is a 5 star plus resort and everything (including the price of course) tells the right story. The attention to detail is sublime. We booked a deluxe suite with swimming pool (was recommended online as best value for money) and this proved to be the best location for a couple of days. The staff... More

Such a beautiful place. You should be lucky enough to visit to a place like "Saman Villas". One of the best dinning and service. Such a lovely place to enjoy the Seabreeze and nature at it's best! Don't know what else I should write to describe about this place. Truly it's a wonderful place. 😊

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
