This place is PERFECT. From the moment that your guide (and all round great guy) Charlie picked us up from the airport (arranged by Samon Villas) we had a great time. Charlie dropped us off at the hotel reception after giving us his card and telling us that if we needed anything out side the hotel he would be there... More

Amazing staff, great atmosphere. As soon as you arrive, you feel in paradise. The staff pampers you from the day you arrive till you leave. The food is succulent, the dinner by the pool is such a stunning experience. This place gets you closer to the nature. I would advise anyone to visit and dont forget to pass by the... More

After eating at various restaurants recommended by TripAdvisor in Bentota, Galle and Hikaduwa, this was by far the best. Service was excellent, views were picture perfect and the food was absolutely delicious.

My husband and I just came back from a 4 day stay at Saman Villas. We booked the suites with a private pool and the view was amazing. The pool was cleaned/refilled/chlorated often. Cleanliness and housekeeping were of a great standard. Staff are very friendly and helpful- they go out of their way to make the guests' stay better. We... More

We refer to the reviewers false allegation made on TripAdvisor about the experience encountered at Saman Villas. We have already reported this issue to TripAdvisor as the false accusations are damaging. Hotel has a very strict child policy where children below 10 years are not allowed due to safety and privacy reasons. This restriction is clearly and prominently mentioned in... 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
