With the functioning of the developer’s first hotel, Mermaid Hotel and Club, an interest opted for a second hotel. A unique land mass, perhaps the best on the south-west coast, was identified and purchased.
With a vision for an untested and untried form of hotel, an exclusive small luxury boutique hotel was constructed for the first time in Sri Lanka, as early as 1995.
Saman Villas is a special product and a pioneering hotel with identifying features such as “small and luxury”, “individual villas which are single and two storied” and has incorporated extensive use of traditional Sri Lankan architectural styles with extensive use of timber and clay roof tiles coupled with all modern comforts.
Saman Villas opened its doors on Christmas day in 1995 and has been highly acclaimed by guests and reviewers alike, ever since.
