Really Nice Stay.The staff gave a super friendly and welcoming service. We only came for only 1 night here but we would surely stay longer next time we visit Bentota. It is very affordable and feels like a home for friends and family. Also we search some tour in trip advisor and we found Tudu Tours Bentota and done some... More

We visited on the advice of a friend who strongly recommended and we were not disappointed. We stayed in the standard room but this was of a very high standard and had wonderful views out to sea with the waves of the Indian Ocean crashing onto the shore. Bathroom is partially open but worked very well and if there was... More

Enjoy the ocean in luxurious environment with professional friendly staff. Upon our arrival at night, we were surprised by the staff that we were upgraded to grand deluxe room. Unfortunately, we were not happy with this upgrade because we booked a special type of room with certain specifications that we prefer. Although the upgraded room was larger & More private,... More

After travelling through Sri Lanka for 12 days, we chose this amazing resort to end our trip for some R&R! This is possibly one of the best places we have ever stayed in. The service, food, staff were outstanding. We treated ourselves to a massage on our last day (where we did not leave the hotel) and it was the... More

The rolling seas greet you at every corner of the resort. You'll always hear the whooshing waves, even from the very comfortable and large rooms. My mother and I visited for two days for a weekend break. However I would not recommend you bring young children. We are vegetarian and were a little worried about options, but we were presented...

Such an amazing hotel. The staff were so helpful and the surroundings were idyllic. Located right on the ocean the sounds of the waves crashing in every morning was beautiful. We saw some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen in my life. Would definitely rate this hotel highly and hopefully will return again soon. Also I am... More

My husband and I stayed at Saman Villas for four days to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The area was relaxing due to the beautiful infinity pool and stunning views. Our room was spacious with traditional furniture and a very comfortable bed. The restaurant did great food and we ate there everyday. The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough... More

Saman Villas is a lovely tranquil spot in Bentota, about 60Km south of Columbo. The rooms were beautiful with out own pool, the restaurant was very nice and although you could not call it fine dining, there was a good choice with an interesting asian flavour as one might expect. There were very few people staying there (off peak) and... More

By far the best restaurant in the area, absolutely wonderful food with western and Sri Lanka specialties. All food is locally sourced and prepared at the resort. Beautiful ambiance on a clifftop overlooking the infinity pool and ocean. We have dined here a few days in a row and recommend it to everyone!

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
