We loved it. Came for a honeymoon break and it was so relaxing. We had a private pool which was clean (as was everything else). The hospitality was faultless. 2 small development points: a) to increase the quality of irons in the vicinity as we had to go through 4 before finding one that worked and b) to inform when...

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
