Have you ever been on vacations in Sri Lanka? No? Well, if you´re planning to go there once, I can recommend the beautiful boutique hotel Saman Villas at Bentota Beach. I went to Sri Lanka lately and I had a really great time there. For me, the hotel is the perfect place to relax. The service is fantastic and the food is breathtaking. But let me start at the very beginning…
About the boutigue hotel Saman Villas in Sri Lanka
The boutique hotel Saman Villas is located directly at the cliffs and that is why you have a wonderful view to the beaches from both sides. If you decide to stay at Saman Villas, you can choose from different categories of accommodation: You can book a room with terrace or balcony, or a villa with a private pool and a terrace. We booked a villa with pool and we were really happy with our choice. The villa had a big sea view terrace, a nice bedroom and a living area with flat screen TV. But the best thing about our accommodation in Saman Villas at Bentota Beach in Sri Lanka was the bathroom. It was half open and you had the chance to take a shower outside. We felt like we were standing within a small pond - it was very special and I liked it a lot.
In the hotel area you can also find a big pool where you can swim very comfortable. Besides that, you can find a nice spa where you can get any kind of treatments. You can relax and enjoy the sun in one of the plenty cabanas and chairs in the garden area of Saman Villas in Sri Lanka. And of course you can spend some time at the great beaches at both sides of the hotel. They are the perfect places for long walks. But you have to be careful if you want to go swimming. The current is really strong and you need to take care that you are far away from the cliffs.
Great service at a great place
When I am talking about Saman Villas in Sri Lanka, I have to mention the great service. We felt very welcome and I would like to inform you about some details which made our stay even better. At the hotel they are offering room service twice a day. You can get fresh tea every day, served as you wish and when you wish. And this is definitely something you should not miss. Sri Lanka is famous for its amazing Ceylon tea. In the evening the staff brings some candles to your room to protect you from the mosquito. They put one in the open bathroom and one in the bedroom / terrace. As you can see, they are taking care about the guests.
First class breakfast and dinner at Saman Villas
As you might guess, Saman Villas at Bentota Beach in Sri Lanka offers a great variety of nice and fresh food J. They have a restaurant where you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner. We booked half board and we didn’t regret it. The kitchen there is on Michelin restaurant level. The first night after we arrived in the boutique hotel in Sri Lanka we decided to have dinner in our villa. Everything was served on our own terrace. We had kind of a candle light dinner with tasty vine and delicious food which was a great experience. If you want to, you can also have breakfast in your villa, but we preferred to go to the restaurant which is situated in the front of the hotel. You can choose if you want to sit inside or outside but as all windows are open, you have the feeling that you´re sitting outside anyway. As I mentioned before, the hotel is located at the cliffs and you have got a wonderful view at the beach.
I have to say, that not only the location, the private pool and the service of the hotel but also the food has been fantastic. The restaurant at Saman Villas in Sri Lanka was definitely a highlight for me!
For breakfast you can choose from three different menus. You can have a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast, a healthy light one or an American breakfast. To each of them you get fresh fruit juice and a fruit plate with all the fruits you like to have. There is also a great choice of bread, croissants, jam, butter and other sweets. Everything you get at the breakfast is homemade. My highlight was the homemade Nutella made from pure chocolate – I never ate such one before! If you don’t like one of the menus, you don´t have to worry. You can order whatever you like. As I said before, the service at Saman Villas at Bentota Beach is great, the staff is friendly and flexible and will fulfill any of your wishesJ.
Same applies for the dinner. You have a choice of different menus but you can also choose something from the menu or tell them what you would like to have. During our vacation I became a great fan of the food. For me it is on a very, very high level. The head chef is from Germany and used to work in Burj Al Rab before. The food he creates is simply amazing! And everything is included in the half board. If you want to have something really special, then you can choose a degustation menu of 6 or 8 courses. You need to pay a small extra charge for this but it is definitely worth the price. The combinations of sweet, sour, bitter and spicy are unbelievable.
Are you as hungry as I am right now? Well, then it´s probably the right time to book some vacations Saman Villas at Bentota Beach in Sri Lanka. You will definitely not regret it.
