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.

Lovely cabana with outdoor bathroom. Had one of the most comfortable nights sleep we have had in 2 weeks in Sri Lanka. The bed and sheets were brilliant and the breeze from the sea kept us cool in the accommodation. Within reasonable walking distance of the beach and town, but…

Located at the edge of town, Rafael's cabana's are a great escape from the touristy bustle of Arugam Bay's main strip. Staff are on hand to organise breakfast, transport, surfboards and bicycles. The cabana's are sparkling clean and have great outdoor bathrooms. Would highly…
