We stayed in Villa 1 which faces the South beach, this villa has a private pool which is not overlooked. We loved the outdoor bathroom which leads out to the...

We have been relaxing here for three days after our tour of Sri Lanka. Every aspect of this boutique hotel is outstanding. - from the service, location, food and our room with private garden and pool. We haven't found a lack of privacy here at all. There is another villa above ours but unless you make a point of looking...

When we checked in here a manager showed us our room, one of the upstairs ones, above the pool suites. We liked the room enough, the generous space, the panoramic outside terrace, the spectacular outdoorsy bathroom. I asked if the hotel was full. The manager said, “About 50 percent right now. We could offer you one of the pool suites.”...

I still feel exactly the same, but I'd even like to add a few thoughts that contribute to the full picture of Saman Villas. The place is georgeous with temple trees all over the garden between the bungalows. The architecture...

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
