My wife and I spent a week in September at Saman Villas for our 10th wedding anniversary, during which time we made wonderful memories and many new friends among the great staff there. The hotel is set in a stunning location, and we had a deluxe villa with a beautiful view and its own private pool. The "public" infinity pool is also gorgeous, and for our anniversary, a special dinner was organised in the poolside pavilion overlooking the sea.
We spent most of the time in our own private villa and in the spa, where we had some of the best treatments and massages we've experienced anywhere (and we've been to many of the best spas in the world). Special thanks to our wonderful masseurs, Dhammika and Chaminda, for making us feel so great.
For us, food is always an important part of any holiday experience, and we greatly enjoyed all the delicious Sri Lankan curries and hoppers, and the friendly and attentive staff (Thilani, Priyankara and Baty Neville on the front, and Chefs Rizvi Ameer and Manju in the kitchen) who took care of our every wish (including extra papaya for breakfast every day).
The friendly service is one of the highlights of Saman Villa, so we also have to thank Imali and Nirosha on reception, Tharunga on room service, Srimal by the pool and Dereck the spa manager for making us feel so welcome.
We look forward to returning the Saman Villas again to visit our new friends.
- 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
