We visited Saman Villas for 9 nights in March, after a week of touring. The situation of the hotel is beautiful. Lovely pool and beautifully kept gardens. We loved the food - we found breakfast so satisfying (especially the wonderful Sri Lankan breakfasts!) that we did not need lunch. The dinners were great; a very good mix of Sri Lankan dishes and international. The rooms are very spacious, we had one of the upstairs rooms without pool and were very happy. We also visited Geoffrey Bawa's house, Lunaganga - a short drive from Saman Villas - which was atmospheric, with impressive gardens - worth a morning out.
Best thing about this hotel? It's Sri Lankan managed and staffed by lovely local staff. We would love to return.

- 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
