We stayed for four nights at the end of our Sri Lankan holiday and Saman Villas was just whatt we wished for. The setting, the view, the personal and professional service of all the staff was extraordinary. We cannot but recommend this place enough. It was a most relaxing and enjoyable stay and would have loved to stay there for... More

We stayed x3 nights as a couple, in February. Hotel - great location, exceptional views, well-maintained, 26 (big) rooms but spread over a wide area so individual privacy etc is fine. Huge pool too, with plenty of sunbeds in different locations. The two vast beaches are a few steps down the hill each side. Staff - perfect mix of good... More

We wanted a relaxing break away from winter and work pressures and this was a perfect retreat. The staff are welcoming and the atmosphere is perfectly relaxed. We felt at home there right away. The food in the restaurant is outstandingly good. We were on half-board and the evening meal was exceptionally good and always interesting. Breakfasts were good too.... More

We have just returned from Saman Villas having spent three nights there and had a lovely relaxing experience there. The welcome and service we received from the minute we arrived there was fantastic! Nothing is too much trouble for the team here. The food is exceptional and would rival an top class restaurant in London I have been to. If... More

My wife and I decided to get away to escape the cold of January and early February and decided to try Saman Villas in Sri Lanka. We couldn't be happier with our choice. The hotel, its staff and the beaches exceeded our typically high expectations. We do not require pampering, so the friendly, prompt and helpful staff was really more... More

Arrived at Saman Villas after doing some sight seeing around Kandy/Hill Country. It is the most delightful hotel I have stayed in. I addition to the big stuff like the amazing location, the high quality and layout of the buildings, it's the attention to detail in all aspects of the hotel that make it stand out. Everything works really well,... More

Used this superb hotel recently to chill out after a tour of Sri Lanka. We had an upgraded room with its own pool providing a great sea view. The room itself was spacious, well provided for with sound system, blue ray recorder and large screen TV, iPod dock as well as a further sound system in the bathroom with open... More

We spent 5 nights at Saman Villas after 10 days touring Sri Lanka. It is a stunning location perched on the top of rocks protruding into the Indian Ocean with wonderful views along empty beaches to the North and South. The staff were charming and gave wonderful service - wherever you were and whatever you needed. The menu was extensive... More

We stayed here for 7 nights to relax after our first few days in Sri Lanka were spent touring around. We had a deluxe suite with a swimming pool, though we never used the pool because as someone else said the location of the suites means that the pool and sitting area are in the shade for most of the...

We had a suite facing the ocean on ground level. The outside sitting area as well as the pool area offer wonderful views of the beach on both sides of the resort and the ocean. It was the most beautiful pool of the many places we stayed in Sri Lanka. Unfortunately during our one dinner there the staff was quite... More
