During our recent visit to Srilanka, we spent 2 or 3 nights at Saman villas in bentota. Unforgettable and unique stay! We stayed in a room that has a private pool and a superb panoramic view of the beach. Relaxing place. The bathroom had an opening in the roof, somehow making you feel you are out in nature. Staff were...

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our Tour of Sri Lanka. Perfect end. Luxurious suite. Sitting area, bedroom, bathroom, dressing room and balcony. Bathroom is unusual as partly outside, therefore not served by air conditioning, does get humid but nice facility and fun. Staff attentive but never intrusive. Restaurant lovely. Never crowded. Food delicious. The dearest of...

I am sitting by the pool right now. Superb panoramic view of the beach on one side and a view of both beaches from our room. This is elegant and exotic yet friendly and somehow nurturing. The rooms are amazing and attention by all staff discreet and always there. We ventured out to explore Bentota but to be frank we...

Excellent in every way......location, rooms, service and food. No surprises from how it is advertised. Rooms are either Westerley or Northerly facing with both offering very nice views. Our preference would be very much for those facing West so as to enjoy the most of the sunshine. We were given the chance to upgrade to a room with a private...

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
