In addition to the beautiful rooms and facilities which are a every bit as nice as described on the website there is an excellent spa - excellent choice of treatments and massages, very gracious staff and reasonably priced. Contributes to a very relaxing experience.

Delightful staff, beautiful horizon pool, breakfast served as local fishermen pull in their nets. Restaurant offers a wide variety of local and international dishes. This location is still relatively undiscovered. I recommend a visit sooner rather than later.

We spent 7nights here recently during a 3week trip to Sri Lanka, it turned out to be one of the most enjoyable weeks here due to the impeccable hospitality, charm and service...some of the best I have encountered. We had a deluxe room on the ground floor, nicely furnished, lovely big open air bathroom and marvellous housekeeping service...thanks to Sugarth ( sorry about spelling ) and all the other boys. You also have your own sunbeds and little garden space. If I was being picky about the room the only improvement for us would have been some sort of voile panel on the large front windows as people tend to peer in as they walk past and you really don't want to put the electric blinds down during the day so you have to remain decent or frighten someone to death !
The beaches both sides are lovely but the north side is very flat and great for having a long walk. Quite a large surf but because the sand level is flat there's no problem and great fun ! We had no problems with touts at all.
The food was outstanding, rarely have I experienced such consistently good food. Breakfast was absolutely enormous portions of everything ,personally I would have been happier to have had smaller portions , I hate wasting food ! Wonderful curries and such tasty Ngombo prawns...I could go on !
However, almost the best feature is the staff....they really are a delight . Management deserves real credit because ultimately it's all down to them and they have created a great atmosphere. I have to mention Aleesha who I missed saying Goodbye to..so sorry ! Krishantha, Ruwan, actually so unfair to name just a few because they all deserve credit. I do have to add in the girls at reception too....just delightful !
We will return which is something we tend not to do but this place is too good to miss, I highly recommend Saman Villas.
Thank you all.
....also if you need a lovely Tuk Tuk driver ask for Susi he is always outside the hotel , reception will call him for you or his number is +94 0776217525 ...nice new tuk tuk and not a mad driver !

Room Tip: All look good, but don't think I would bother with a private pool room as they tend to be overlooked and a bit squashed together, but please note that I didn't actually go to see one.

We spent six nights at this beautiful place and it was faultless in every respect. All the staff were friendly, helpful and prompt. Our room was fabulous and the food was delicious. The infinity pool overlooking the ocean was just wonderful. Would definitely come back given the chance!

Room Tip: we didnt have a room with a plunge pool but did not miss this. in fact, these are overlooked by the rooms above so, in our view, not an added attraction

Stayed 3 nights at Saman Villas at the end of January 2014. The bedrooms are spacious with a large bathroom and lovely outdoor shower. The location is ideal with magnificent views from the grounds and there is a wonderful infinity pool . The food was excellent and the staff attentive and helpful.
Nirosha Sanjeewani in Guest Relations was particularly knowledgeable and helpful.
Would definitely recommend staying there.
