Unbelievably romantic spot with great views of the ocean from all over the place. We stayed at the ocean view room with private pool and its absolutely breath-taking. Its not completely private and visible to the room above and the 2 adjacent rooms but with off season and low occupancy the hotel normally ensures enough privacy by not allotting adjacent... More

We stayed at Saman Villas for 3 nights last weekend. It was a great choice and we had a wonderful time. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. All our future stays at any hotel at any location will be measured against our time at Saman Villas. The place is amazing and the view is spectacular. We could... More

The view from sitting by this pool is to die for. I sat here with a gin and tonic and a nice book and you truly are in paradise. The rooms are fantastic and the foods a bit overpriced but its still great. The staff are also excellent.

Lovely atmosphere Private pools are amazing Excellent for Couples Friendly staff Massive suites However, the pool water should be requested to be cleaned as the size of private pools is only 7m long and water should be changed for each visitors.

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

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

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
