Great Hotels of the World member re-opens after extensive renovation

Great Hotels of the World http://www.ghotw.com is pleased to announce the re-opening of its member Saman Villas http://www.ghotw.com/saman-villas in Bentota, Sri Lanka, as of the 12 August 2010.

As part of Saman Villas’ continued efforts to be one of the best boutique hotels in Asia as well as to cater to the growing demands of the top-end traveller, an extensive refurbishment project was commissioned in 2010. The hotel has undergone a major transformation after the £580,000 refurbishment programme and now boasts a brand new look and feel while keeping the distinct Sri Lankan concept for which it has become renowned.

Major modifications have taken place in all of the guest rooms focusing on luxurious comfort including soothing water features, a complete over-haul of fixtures and fittings, oversized terrazzo bath tubs and open-air showers. All public areas have been completely revamped with impressive use of carved teak wooden pillars and a fresh new roof design. The infinity poolside has also been given a facelift.

For more information or to book Saman Villas visit http://www.ghotw.com/saman-villas or call +44 (0) 20 7380 3658.
