Saman Villas, a true piece of paradise


Aqua hued waters, pure white sands, swaying coconut trees – there are times when only a beach holiday will do. Perched on a rocky headland dividing two long seemingly endless, surf swept, unspoilt beaches of golden sand backed by the luscious greenery of coconut plantations in the quiet fishing village of Aruruwella, Bentota lies award winning Saman Villas, Sri Lanka’s first boutique hotel.

At Saman Villas you’ll find a special place that is a true piece of paradise. Here you can soak up the style and sophistication of one of the most luxurious boutique hotels on the island, walk on the pristine Bentota beach or take a relaxing dip in the sea. Discover inner harmony with a pampering spa session or lose yourself in the gourmet delights including a special Sri Lankan tasting menu the first of its kind. At Saman Villas luxury comes as standard and ‘getting away from it all’ takes on a whole new meaning.

Saman Villas pushes the boundaries of exclusivity with just twenty seven exquisite villas some featuring their own private pools with unmatched views of the stunning and un-spoilt coastline of Bentota.

This resort is wonderfully idyllic and tranquil, offering its guests peace and privacy in abundance. The design inspiration for the villas is taken from a fusion of modern Sri Lankan and Javanese aesthetics, cleverly combined to create a sophisticated and relaxing ambiance that blends perfectly into the tropical environment.

Its tranquil setting means relaxation and romance are top of the bill. Make for one of the lounge areas or decks overlooking the ocean dotted around the grounds and you’ll find your own place in the sun.

Inside, there are hints at traditional Sri Lankan style but hip lighting and eye-catching artwork give the property a contemporary edge. Each of the 27 villas continues this trend. Think luxury bathrooms with outdoor showers and inviting bathtubs alongside beds that you’ll find hard to get out of! All the villas have stunning sea views and electronic blinds allow you to enjoy them without ever having to move from your bed. Back outside, there’s an incredible infinity pool overlooking the ocean, surrounded by sun loungers. At dusk, it becomes the spot to get a cocktail and immerse yourself in the views before dinner.

Dinning here is an event in itself and in keeping with its tradition of innovation Saman Villas has introduced fine dining and degustation menus including the Sri Lankan tasting menu. This tasting menu with a range of 22 distinct flavours is offered in four or five course menus. The Sri Lankan tasting menu offers an exotic culinary experience to an unforgettable gastronomical experience showcasing the best of the Islands local produce prepared using local cooking techniques with intense flavours.

Think gorgeous sunsets, extravagant cocktails by the infinity pool, intimate and stylish suites with breathtaking sea views, some with their own private pools, lazy days of sunshine, unbelievably good food and you are picturing Saman Villas. An undeniably romantic boutique hotel that defines a luxury escape.
