We have just spent four nights at Saman. First, the location is absolutely stunning - set on a small headland between two arcs of white sand, a couple of kilometres in either direction. A highlight for us was to walk to the far end of the beach while watching the fishermen haul in their catch in the early morning sun....

We were six friends having our Christmas dinner at Saman Villas, at the pool pavilion. The atmosphere by the pool was great and made the evening very special. The food, especially the lobster, was really good. The service was also great. We recommend Saman Villas for special occasions!

My wife and I decided on a short breakaway to Sri Lanka for our anniversary and her birthday, and it was the first time either of us had been there. There were many beach resorts to choose from – the majority of them being located along the West/South coast of the island. We opted to stay in Saman Villas situated...

I realise the more I travel that the thing that makes a hotel wonderful is the staff and how you are treated. I've stayed in stunning places where the staff are dismissive and unhelpful. This place was not that. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We had lots of food requirements- they asked once and everyone remembered what all...

Beautifully located luxury hotel with excellent service. The small boutique hotel is situated on a small headline between two expansive beaches but if you don't fancy a stroll along the beach, there is no need to leave as the hotel has amazing facilities: beautiful large infinity pool, loads of sun loungers, good food and first rate service. We also had...

We spent Christmas through New Year at this one-of-a-kind boutique resort and had the best Asian vacation of our lives. From the efficiently-arranged airport pick-up to the always-on-time fine dining food and service, to the spotlessly clean pool areas, to the always friendly yet courteous staff, everything at Saman Villas met and frequently exceeded our expectations. The welcoming ambience inside...

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
