The view was spectacular and the food excellent! It sort of overlooks the beach and is very quiet and tranquil. We really enjoyed our stay there. Staff is very friendly too and quite helpful. It was secluded and romantic. Most rooms have private plunge pools. Excellent place for a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Get one on the lower level

we loved our stay, the food was better than expected, spa was a great addition too. go for a room with private pool, you wont regret it! perfect for 3-5 days stay, small trips to discover the river with a boat or a half day trip to Galle is a great idea too.

Room Tip: go for a room with a private pool

We stayed 5 nights at Saman Villas at the beginning of April for the first part of our honeymoon, and it was perfect! Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer! Beautiful infinity pool, delicious food (check out the great curries and very tasty Sri Lankan breakfasts!) and lovely cocktails, great room and regularly spruced up again, stunning views of the ocean and beautiful beaches on each side, very relaxing spa and fantastic and friendly staff. The very smiley Alisha (sp?) answered all our many questions about Sri Lankan food, the staff on the front desk booked restaurants, called up the surf place in Bentota for us, anything we needed help with, plus we had a very friendly tuk-tuk driver, Ruwan Chinthake (card available from Reception), who drove us to various places during our stay, patiently waited for us when we were always slightly late and always gave us a fair price. We really hope to go back there someday!

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
