Super aspect on rocky outcrop straddling 2 beaches, you would have no idea when you pull up just off the main road. The villa was an upstairs one (better view) with spacious balcony, and the room was brilliant (though in common with the resort had a few steps in it). The bathroom partially outside was great and unique, having a... More

A huge thank you to all the staff at Saman Villas who looked for every opportunity to attend to our every need.

Glorious setting, brilliantly situated on rock promontory between 2 beautiful beaches, this luxury hotel was a blissful haven for a 4 night pampering after a busy 2 weeks touring Sri Lanka. Exquisite attention to every detail, friendly and attentive staff, fantastic food. Not cheap, but wow! - you get what you pay for!

Great hotel and totally unique compared to other hotels in the area because it provides the flavor of unique private holidays (especially if you book the room with a private pool). Pluses: - very high service level from reception to restaurant - free breakfast to the room - unique view from rooms - very high-quality rooms - on our last... More

The rooms are spacious and well equipped and we were really sad to leave albeit for a tour of this lovely island. We surely will return for ore Saman hospitality and spoiling. Only one little complaint -... More

Left here today and was very sad to leave. We had exceptional service here from all the staff. The room was a pool villa, no 25, and was excellent with views over the beach and sea. The food was superb at night time and there are some great beach bars nearby. Excellent property and hotel. Only suggestion would be to... More

This is the perfect hotel. My husband and I have travelled relatively extensively, yet I have never been compelled to write r review previously. We visited this slice of heaven on our honeymoon in August 2013 and were taken aback by the service, facilities and hospitality. The hotel is set in breath taking surroundings and the pool is so tranquil,... More

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
