Although we did not stay at Saman Villas while in Bentota, we read about their Aruyvedic spa in Lonely Planet and decided to try it. The setting (spa was designed by renowned Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa) and massage were glorious - the best we he in Sri Lanka!

Staff were exemplary nothing too much trouble, had a problem with the Internet and the staff could not open enough to sort it out, which they did. Food was excellent, rooms spotless. It is expensive to stay here but the service and the views help make it worthy of the price tag. Weather in July inclement and at this time... More

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.
