So expletive-ing good. Best place we have both stayed in our lives and completely agree with the other reviews. Flawless service and incredible property. 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. 😊

By far one of the best places I have stayed and highly recommend! Having been to Sri Lanka a total of 4 times now I am so glad I chose to stay at Saman Villas this particular trip. I stayed at Saman Villas for only 3 days, but wish it was longer. I travelled during August and the weather was... More

I visited Sri Lanka for my honeymoon & covered Colombo,Bentota,Kandy & Nuwara Alia. We chose the place based on our constraints and decided to book the Saman Villas for a week. The trip was planned across various Sri Lankan cities and started off from the sleepy town of Bentota located in the Southern province. The hotel was a haven of... More

Saman Villas set a new benchmark in terms of accommodation for my wife and I. We stayed for 4 nights in April and had a wonderful stay. Our room was enormous with a living area, balcony overlooking the beach, a dressing room and an outdoor (but sheltered) bathroom with shower and bath. The room was fully air conditioned with a...

Tried to order a bottle of wine at 11:15 pm to be told the bar was shut so no wine. Use the mini bar. What???? As I say... More

We thank the reviewer for their recent stay at Saman Villas and commending our staff and pool. 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 trendy, but the hotel offers all modern comforts... More

Perfectly placed at the top of a small hill between two beaches, very charming and clean bangalows, beautiful pool and lots of privacy if this is what you are looking for. Great food and very good service. Wish to go back any time again!

We arrived at Saman Villas on our first day of our honeymoon in Sri Lanka and we were happy with our choice from the start. We had the standard suite (room 2) but to label it 'standard' isn't fair because it was far from it. We had fantastic views of the beach and ocean (which I woke up to every... More

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
