The website room descriptions actually doesn't do it justice. Just lovely! We spent 4 days there and it was a perfect ending to our 2 week tour of Sri... More

We went here for lunch today. We were greeted warmly by the staff and they seemed genuinely interested in us. We had the beef burger and chicken shawarma wrap with a tonic and a sprite. It totaled to a little more than 4000 ruppees. It was worth it though. View was amazing and felt so tranquil. Thilani's service was great!!... More

The outside space both for showering and balcony are lovely and private. Cleanliness is fantastic as are the individual Room staff that... More

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
