Our seven days at Saman Villas were just perfect. There are only about 27 villas, so you get to know all the staff who are hand picked to work there and cannot do enough for you. They are all so friendly. The food is fantastic and so healthy. We still miss our tropical fruit for breakfast. Everthing was delicious.
The rooms had everything that you could possible want, including very efficient air conditioning. For once there was plenty of lighting to read and for us girls to makeup in the evening. Most hotels seem to fall down on this. Also plenty of hanging space for clothes and more than enough clothes hangers for the 2 of us.
The hotel never seemed too crowded and children under 12 not allowed.
A trip that can be booked from the hotel - 15 minutes away, is to the house and garden, Lunuganga of Sir Geoffrey Bawa, Sri Lanka's most famous architect. We found it very interesting and had the most wonderful Sri Lankan lunch elegantly served on the veranda.
- 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
