Our honeymoon started at this hotel and what a start we had! From the moment we arrived it felt as if we were in paradise! The views, the location, the food and importantly the staff all contributed to making our stay perfect. We were given a bottle of wine on arrival and cake dessert at our last dinner when the...

We stayed here as a family at the end of a busy time seeing Sri Lanka and it was all that we had hoped for and more! All the staff without exception were outstanding. It isn't a big hotel and only has 27 rooms therefore is peaceful and we felt truly pampered after our stay. The setting is beautiful, with... More

One of the nicest and most relaxing hotels in which I have stayed. The location is wonderful with the hotel situated about 15 metres above the rocks with gorgeous views of palm fringed beaches from either side of the promontory. The pool suites are lovely with masses of space and very well laid out and the pools are lovely for... More

Our 3 night stay at Saman Villas was a real highlight of our two week honeymoon in Sri Lanka. As described and pictured, the rooms, pool, surrounds and views are absolutely magnificent. We especially loved our outdoor bathroom! The sound of the Indian Ocean crashing below us was the perfect sleep tonic. What really made our stay special was the... More

We travelled around Sri Lanka for our 2 week honeymoon. Saman Villas was our first stop. We only stayed here for three nights as we were unable to afford any longer! It was worth every penny and I wished we could have stayed longer! We had a very warm welcome and throughout our stay the staff were excellent. Nothing was... More

We are still here - our last of 6 nights before our island tour begins. Villa with pool number 29 - very nice room with semi outside bathroom, dressing room and terrace. We haven't used our pool much as our villa is mostly in the shade. Of the 8 pool villas ours is the lowest - the best one is... More

We spent 6 nights here on our honeymoon and we loved it! All the little touches made the difference, a complimentary 90 mins massage each, a four course honeymoon dinner in the pool pavilion, welcome and farewell cakes on our first and last night, our room being cleaned twice daily etc. The staff were always friendly and professional, we enjoyed...

We are just normal hard working people who saved for a long time to treat ourselves to a little luxury, and this hotel exceeded expectations. We had a north facing room. Good points Location - between 2 stunning beaches with bunny soft sand and within easy reach of restaurants and bars. Cleanliness - superb Staff - very respectful and polite,... More
