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

One look at the aerial pictures of this amazing hotel will give you an idea of how unique it is. Where to start?.. Such wonderful staff, they could not be more welcoming, friendly and helpful. All the waiters and waitresses are really smiley and happy, happy to chat and always so there when you need without being 'hover'y. Front of... 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

We went to Saman Villas in late September for a 7 night stay, after a 7 day tour around Sri Lanka with Trailfinders. First impressions of the resort upon approach were a little daunting. Visitors turn off of the main road and travel down a dark, tree lined alley way and have to knock on a large wooden door or... More

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at this beautiful resort. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed first class, efficient and friendly service from everyone. Special thanks to Ranga in the bar for making delicious cocktails and Dhammika in the spa. The food deserves a special mention too as it was some of the best we have ever... More

Spent 1 night in Saman Villa and I must say the stay was somewhat average considering the amount you pay for what you actually get. Whilst the location was picturesque we were unlucky in that it rained for the duration of our stay. As each villa was separately housed and required you to climb a flight of stairs, it meant... More

We had a nice week end in saman villas with my boyfriend. The place is spacious, not too crowded and the breakfast is excellent. Anyway the sea was brownish maybe because of the season and the place is comfortable but can be maybe a little more modern.

We thank the reviewer for their recent stay at Saman Villas. The concept of the hotel is derived from ancient Sri Lankan temple architecture complemented with classical furniture and décor in keeping to a timeless design and concept. The concept is by no means modern or even trendy, but the hotel offers all modern comforts to a traveler seeking for... More

I and my girlfriend chose Saman Villas because of the higher ranking in TripAdvisor and Yes! It's a very nice resort for couples who likes nature, quietness and romance. Rooms and bathrooms are very clean and comfortable. You can dim lights or close curtains with a remote controlled switches from the bed. Our room was facing the sea squirrels were... More
