Local style hut.
Pillar's in local teak logs; the roof skeleton in wood and covered in coconut leaf mesh.
The walls are in wood and brick; on both sides (north and south) there are two openings on the upper part of the walls allowing wind circulation and fresh air in the room; adding to that there is a ceiling fan for additional comfort.
The attached bathroom has an open roof and a small garden.
The front porch is directly on the sand and has a shade where you can chill in hot hours.

This spot is a 15min walk from main Arugam which you can complete along the beach or road. Be advised this is in the middle of a quiet local neighborhood and is named Kadjun Villa. The water directly out from the cabana is quite rough. Property was beautiful and simple.

A very lovely stay, close to a very private beach and a short tuk tuk to the more populous shoreline. Rafael and Shali were great hosts.

I really loved this house and the open bathroom. The beach is very close and Raphael and sharli are nice. Only breakfast was a bit expensive (800rh for one). But all in all I would recommend.
