Travellers' Choice
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.

This was the first 'boutique' hotel to open in Sri Lanka and it's quite something. In an absolutely stunning location it is textbook out of a travel magazine. The rooms with pools are very pricey but worth it. Food in restaurant is actually quite affordable, wine is expensive. There are couple of really nice places within walking distance too. Staff are amazing. Beach is superb. Just book it

Everything was amazing about this hotel, from the location, to the staff, to the unbelievable food. Every single meal was exceptional. The views were stunning, the infinity pool was spectacular and the room was lovely. Silva made excellent cocktails and all the staff, Iresha and the whole team, were so friendly and provided a great service. We highly recommend it.

We ate here 2 evenings during our stay in Bentota. We were really pleased with the menu's, a welcomed change with interesting choices. Fresh salads and beautifully cooked fish , sri lankan curries (the curry experience is totally different here), the desserts, the cocktails and a good choice of wine. Little extras brought to the table , appetiser, home made bread, sorbet... Service and setting is top notch, we didn't stay here but would definitely choose to do so next time. If you want to treat yourselves and have a little luxury you won't be disappointed.
