Travelers' Choice
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.

Coming out of lockdown, we were keen to find a private scenic villa for a holiday outside of Colombo. Been waiting to try Saman Villas for quite a few years and so was our first choice due to the private villas with pools. Staff were incredibly attentive and there was a high focus on safety/hygiene - our bags were disinfected, temp checked, sanitiser on offer at a lot of places around the property/villa. The room itself was lovely but we were told they were going in for renovations and this would be a great uplift. The pool and the view was absolutely delightful! Food - typical Jetwing style - was three course meals and great flavour. Overall, a great stay and a much needed break from the pandemic anxieties.

We have returned to Saman Villas each February for four years now. It is superbly located, is an elegant and tranquil and extremely well run by our maitre de and his staff. Excellent food incredible personal service. Wonderfully quiet and private accommodation with our own small pool. . This year we combined our stay at the coast with a visit to Udawalawe elephant park. What a fabulous holiday!

We were lucky enough to stay here for four days at the end of our trip around Sri Lanka and all four of us wished we could have stayed much longer. Saman Villas must be one of the loveliest places any of us have ever stayed. The location is a dream right by two very different beaches, the swimming pool is beautiful and as for the rooms, you would be hard pushed to better them. We loved the outside bathrooms. The meals were of a exceptional high standard and surprisingly reasonable for the high standard of food. We had been recommended to stay by a friend who had lived in Sri Lanka and he was so right. We would definitely love to return one day soon.

We stayed at Saman Villas last week to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We chose Saman Villas because of its architectural beauty and unique setting on a rock by the sea. Being a boutique hotel, Saman Villas’ emphasis is on providing an exclusive and exquisite experience for its guests and, for us, they did not fall short. It was our first hotel stay, post the Covid 19 lockdown, and we were happy to see all government health guidelines being followed to the letter. All staff wore face masks and hand sanitizers were readily available, Being a boutique hotel it has only some 27 rooms and a small, but adequate, number of staff. With plenty of airy common spaces, social distancing wasn’t a problem. Our room was spacious, very comfortable and extremely clean. Beautifully decorated with warm wooden finishes and fabrics that reflected the colours of the sand and sea outside. It had large sliding windows which opened on to a cool and shady veranda. In front of the veranda was a small garden with sun beds and a totally private infinity plunge pool that seemed (when one was in it) to merge seamlessly with the sea. What made our stay most memorable however, was the hotel’s “beyond excellent” staff who went out of their way to make our stay extra-special. Krishantha, the F&B manager, with his well-trained staff that served us (namely, Rushan, Dhulara, Sarah and Iresha) really elevated our fine dining experience to a whole new level. Krishantha went out of his way to organise two romantic dinners for us on the “sea side deck,” and in the “pool side pavilion” despite light showery conditions. Fortunately for us (and the serving staff) the rain held off during our meals. The food was outstanding and we did not have a single meal (throughout our stay) that was not exquisitely plated and delicious. Our compliments to the team of chefs for providing us with divine culinary experiences throughout. Gayathri, the front office manager, together with her team Ujith, Udara and Bhagya, was extremely friendly, polite and efficient. From the moment we made our reservation, through the warm welcome we received and right up to point we departed, Gayathri personally ensured that all our requests were attended to most courteously and promptly. We have travelled extensively in Sri Lanka and abroad, and what makes Saman Villas stand out for us is its personalized service to its guests and the outstanding beauty of its setting. We had a most delightful stay that exceeded all our expectations. We would definitely come back!

Loved it. Took Wify for our 11th anniversary and wanted some time away from kids, but also without being way too far from the kids back home :) Booked the villa with the pool. Had a lovely view from the room of the Indian Ocean which also had good privacy where other guests were well apart from the the villa or Including privacy around own pool which was nice, Salty wind made things a bit salty which was not bad :). The staff was very helpful and always had a smile and made us feel comfortable. No over inquisitive questions other than if we are having a good time, and if there is anything they can help with. Food variety was not much but they offered a personalized service and gave what we wanted with the limited manu options we had. Gave a complimentary cake and made us enjoy some pics which we may have otherwise forgotten to take. It was not at all crowded so was nice. Hotel was well maintained. Didn’t get to use the common pool but it looked nice. Would recommend for couples and for anniversaries and honeymoons. Would definite go again in a few years for sure. Parking is also available and getting to the hotel was also easy though it was hidden away from rest of busy city areas. Travelled in June 2019 so hope things have remained the same there.
