Saman Villas – Magnificent views
Saman Villas, with it’s sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, is one of the most luxurious small hotels in the west coast of Sri Lanka.
Saman Villas is magnificently perched on a rocky headland dividing two long seemingly endless, surf-swept un-spoilt beaches of golden sand, backed by dense green coconut plantations, in the quiet-sleepy fishing village of Aturuwella in Bentota.
The atmosphere is one of tranquility, disturbed only by the sound of sea gulls and the waves breaking on the rocks below.
Wide ocean, infinite sky, and Saman Villas…
A Pool with a view
The views, from anywhere in Saman Villas, are unbelievably magnificent.
The inviting ‘infinity edged’ swimming pool with sea blue water appears to merge with therocky vast Indian Ocean beyond. The cascading gardens on the rock face offer a variety of locations to appreciate the magnificent views, caressed by cooling sea breeze, in quite relaxation.
