We are just about to check out after four days of luxury. Wonderful place, wonderful staff, wonderful food. Get a villa with private pool and pamper yourself. It is very quiet and peaceful so don't be expecting anything approaching fast pace. We feel like we have been at a high end health spa!!

We stayed for 8 nights, yes my credit card is now lying in a dark place not to be used again this year but it was worth every penny!
We stayed in a pool villa, which was brilliant, our little garden and pool got the sun all day. The room itself was very spacious. I loved opening the electric blinds each morning to the perfect view of our pool and the ocean beyond. Our garden also came with its own little squirrel, who kept us entertained with his attempts to carry a chunk of watermelon through the hedge!
We did have plans to visit other restaurants in the area but our first lunch in the Saman restaurant convinced us to stay in the hotel each night! The food was fantastic! The menu is extensive, in fact even after 8 nights, we still hadn't tried all the courses that took our fancy. The prawn and asparagus gourmet is a must!
The service in all areas of the hotel was excellent. All staff were friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for us, yet still managed to stay discrete and unobtrusive.
Thank you for everything, we had a marvellous time and hope when the credit card has recovered to visit again soon.

Room Tip: Pool villas are worth the extra.

We recently celebrated our daughter's wedding at this wonderful hotel. It has a beautiful setting with views over the beach. The rooms are luxurious and the food exceptional. The staff were all very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. A perfect experience.

We stayed here 4 nights and this included our wedding day and meal for 25 guests.
To say we were ecstatic with the quality of service and the staff here would be an understatement, they couldn't have been nicer, kinder, friendlier or better if they tried.

They accommodated all our needs and questions, were very flexible with our wedding ideas and made the day really perfect, including arranging for a friendly elephant and professional photographer/ videographer. The quality of the products they produced for us was very very good and we would recommend them without a doubt.

The hotel itself is super luxurious and a very special place to spend as much time as you can afford to. The food is amazing (with a wide range of choices) and very reasonably priced and very well portioned for a boutique hotel. The staff in the restaurant and bar are all just amazing..I can't stress this enough.

In fact, all the staff from reception, our wedding organisers Imali and Gayathri to the cleaners and pool staff are a real credit to the hotel and made us feel so welcome and special - especially for our wedding day!! Nearly every member of staff congratulated us and wished us a 'happy life' which was much more than we expected.

I can't recommend this hotel enough and would happily answer any questions of anyone wants more info about our stay here.

Room Tip: If it doesn't break your budget, the rooms with their own pools are absolutely amazing and worth...

Everything was perfect in this hotel, from the excellent service to the beautiful grounds. What a view!! The hotel rise above a rock overlooking the powerful ocean on both sides, we woke up every morning with a full view on the sea...

Probably one of the best hotels in Sri Lanka, worth the spending. We stayed there for 3 nights, wish we could have added-up 1 more....

The service was picture perfect with geniune, professional& kind Staff, breakfast and choice of food was excellent...+ they have an amazing spa worth to try: try the ayurvedic "Shirodhara".

The hotel itself is a gem: the design is a mix of waxed concrete and wood, its an extremely peaceful and refined architecture.

2 nights at Saman Villa (room with private pool) in april.
We choosed this hotel because of the beautiful location and we did not care about their prices (Yes, it is has extreme high prices)!

Shortly said, it is a perfect 5star luxury in even the smallest things, with no mistakes at al, just as expected and as it has to be for that price!

There is no sense to write a long review, go there, stay there and beleive me, it worths the price... :)

Saman Villas is laid out on a magnificent rocky headland dividing two long, surf-swept golden beaches.

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
