Just back from 6 days at Saman Villas and I wish I was still there. This was just the most amazing place to relax and unwind after 9 days of traveling around Sri Lanka. The location is outstanding, the views of the indian ocean took my breath away daily. Brendon, Nerisha and all of the staff make you feel so... More

My husband and I booked the Grand Deluxe Suite with Swimming pool and only got to spend about an hour in the suite. It is a gorgeous room that overlooks a white sandy beach and has a lovely swimming pool that I was eager to enjoy. However, during our first hour in the room, I looked up to the rafter... More

This is just the most stunning place to spend a relaxed holiday. The setting is outstanding and Brendon and his team make the whole experience unforgetable. Rooms are large and comfortable and all areas spotlessly clean. Restuarant service was swift and food selection top class. The front reception desk directed by Norisha were incredibly helpful and the Spa was really... More

We enjoyed a full week's stay at the Saman Villas in one of their Deluxe Suites with private pool. First off, the location and layout of the hotel is just phenomenal. It feels like in your own private beach house tugged away in a nicely decorated garden with lots of carefully looked after greens and under large trees. Upon arrival... More

What better way to wrap up a tour of Sri Lanka than with three days at this sybaritic spot on the Indian ocean? Maybe five days or more. Yes, this hotel is not inexpensive, but it's still an incredible value: for the service, overall design, and its setting. It's laid out in such a way that all 30 rooms could... More
