    Saman Villas in Bentota is a superb romantic beach hideaway, tranquil and indulgent.

    Hotel description

    Saman Villas in Bentota is a small luxury resort with just 27 suites, offering high standards of comfort and cuisine. Occupying a striking position on a headland overlooking a magnificent stretch of beach at Bentota on the south-west coast, Saman Villas has been designed according to the traditions of ancient Sri Lankan architecture. Buildings are open-plan and in the terraced garden the swimming pool appears to merge with the Indian Ocean. The spacious suites face the sea on either side of the main hotel buildings. Their large glass doors afford uninterrupted views of the ocean as well as access to a private veranda or balcony; all suites at Saman Villas have a lounge area with a day bed and dining table, raised sleeping deck, dressing room and luxurious bathroom with open-air shower and courtyard. Days at Saman Villas can be spent basking in the peace of the hotel, swimming in the large pool, enjoying a massage or strolling along the sandy beach that stretches from the hotel’s doorstep. Dining is a thoughtfully crafted fusion of western and eastern cuisine with spicy Sri Lankan flavours. Guests at Saman Villas can choose to eat in a number of romantic dining locations including on the beautiful sandy beach. Set in beautiful landscaped gardens is the Sahana Spa, where guests can relax in luxurious treatment suites endowed with aromatic saunas, elegant dining pavilions and the sound of soothing music and flowing water. After extensive refurbishment, Saman Villas in Bentota now offers ever-more luxurious fixtures and fittings and innovative design.
