Arranged at short notice, we struck lucky with this hotel. Our relaxation started the minute we enter into the courtyard - the architecture, and water features are restful and uncluttered, the location beautiful and the staff the best I have experienced anywhere in the world. All the good things earlier reviewers say are true - we couldn't fault it. The other guests were either older couples or honeymooners, so no children when we were there, which added to the calmness about the place.
The food in the restaurant is fantastic and has all the best in Sri Lanka cuisine, and having tried a few other restaurants in the area, we decided they didn't come up to the Saman Villa's standard for quality and presentation, and the prices were about the same - so we chose to eat in the restaurant all the time after that. If you can, take the opportunity for a massage. At first sceptical, it was a first time for my husband, and he was amazed and delighted how deeply relaxing it was.
- 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
