So when we started planning our honeymoon we had Maldives in mind and we were almost finalizing the resort and almost booking the place. This is when... More

Only 4-5 rooms were occupied (due... More

I recently stayed at Saman villas with my family. It's a nice boutique hotel, with only 29 rooms in total. I liked that pool villas are quite private and all have an amazing view of the ocean. My problem was with the noisy train nearby, and barking dogs that you can hear all times of the night. It would be... More

Himaj J, General Manager - Marketing & Operations at Saman Villas, responded to this review

We refer to the reviewer’s recent stay at Saman Villas. Thank you for commending the Deluxe Suites with Pools and the views. The railway track is over 800 meters away from the hotel. The noise of the trains has not been an issue for the vast majority of guests. Our guests have always appreciated the wide variety of menu options... More

All the staff from Brendon (the Manager) all the way through to the friendly helpful housekeeping staff, wonderful,wonderful people. The high standards of this place are fantastic. This is a place where... More

This is the most perfect of places to stay! Every single member of staff are fabulous, friendly and helpful, and do their utmost to guarantee a very enjoyable stay! We met the chef several times and also the manager which I think is a lovely touch. Well done Saman Villas, we will be back for sure!

Just returned from my honeymoon and this was by far the best accommodation i have stayed in. Privacy, romantic, brilliant views, clean...everything. The service is absolutely amazing. Again, i have never been felt more welcome than anywhere else.

A friend had recommended this place to me when I had planned a trip to Srilanka. This place is away from Colombo. Its a distinct resort stand on a rock along the shore. The rooms are different than other resorts. The bathing area especially is open to sky yet private. The infinity pool is very well designed the spa is... More

My husband and I stayed at Saman Villas for 8 nights in March 2015 and during that time we had our wedding at the hotel. I can not begin to describe what an incredible experience it was, and this was all due to the tremendous staff. We have never encountered people who take such pride in their work, and it... More
