Arugam Bay Vacation Rentals

Just booked in Arugam Bay

Simple, private, clean and comfortable wooden beach cabana. Double and single bed with attached private en-suite bathroom. Secure with direct access on to the main beach at Arugam Bay. Drinks and meals available and 4G WiFi in all areas!
You are in the best location in Arugam Bay, at the centre point of the bay. Easy access to everything you need, local shops and restaurants are a 5 min walk away.
  • Golden Beach Cabana is a wonderful paradise corner, situated in the middle of Arugam Bay. Our cabana was cozy and clean, around 50 meters far from the beach, next to all bar, shops and restaurant of Arugam Bay main (and almost only) touristic street. The nearest surfing spot is almost 500 meters far, and you can easily walk to reach it. Rihan, a young guy who is managing the place, is a really nice host! His english is fluent, and he took care about us during all our stay. Golden beach has a beautiful chilling area with a nice background music selection with a little bar / restaurant, where you can relax during the hottest hours of the day or have breakfast, lunch or dinner. Food is absolutely great! We had really good breakfast before surfing. I'll raccomend you Avocado, Tomato and Cheese toast (addictive!) and all the fresh juices and lassies. The perfect boost you need before a surf session. Rihan could also arrange a typical Sri Lankan dinner if you book it few hours in advance: we tried it and it was one of the best meal we had in Sri Lanka, homemade prepared by his family. Laundry service available (excellent) and tons of good vibes. Hopefully, see you soon Rihan!

  • Great! Wonderful! Fantastic! Nice place, nice cabanas, nice host! Our stay in the golden beach hotel was really relaxing and comfortable. The first idea was to stay one night, in the end we decided to stay three! Rahin is a perfect host, helpful, nice, speaks really good English and is a great chef! We definitely come back if we're in Sri Lanka again!

  • Rihan is a great host. He is very helpful and a nice guy. The cabana was so nice. It was very clean and got everything you need. Highly recommended!

    Sven2015-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Was way more than impressed. Rihan and his team made it an very relaxing and rewarding time for our family of 6. Rihan especially has a manner that makes everyone feel incredibly welcome. Facilities are not fancy, but we found extremely comfortable. Fans, unheated but comfortable water, great pillows, a nice deck to relax on all had us staying as long as we could. Great help with credible/cost effective transportation, trips to the national game park, and surfing lessons. we ate out a handful of times in the area, and enjoyed it, but we so enjoyed Rihan's cooking and it's fair price, that we ate 75% of our meals in the lounge area.

  • The cabanas at Stay Golden are very well located at the beach and within the bay. We really enjoyed our stay. Its nice to sit outside and relax. The little restaurant area is a nice place to meet others or have a snack. Rihan is a very nice host, who cares about every guest and helps whereever its needed.

    Gregor2015-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location right on the beach, we stayed with our 3 year old and she had a brilliant time playing with the sand and dogs! Rihan and Angie were great hosts and we were sad to leave.

    Jenni2017-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Stay Golden was our home for 4 wonderful days. We toured Sri Lanka for 2 weeks and couldn't be happier we spent a chunk if our time here. Quiet and low-key, with the friendliest local staff. We far preferred the stilted cabanas and tree-lined gardens to the numerous more modern options on the Arugam strip and felt the essence of our tropical island holiday. The hotel is couple and children friendly with direct beach access and good food available from the beach restaurant with the best (shaded) view of the bay. Pancakes and coffee for breakfast are our suggestion. The hotel is not licenced to sell alcohol but you can BYOB. This didn't bother us at all as it keeps the relaxed vibe which we loved. Arugam was good to us, waves and wildlife with numerous good food options and Stay Golden was the perfect base.

    Kristie2017-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Rihan was an amazing host, nothing was too much trouble to arrange for us. Him and all his staff made us feel so welcome and looked after us exceptionally well. The location is great, central but not too close to the loud late night parties. Enjoyed our stay immensely and will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Arugam Bay!

    Hello, cheers from Kristina and Johana from Prague/Czech republic. Currently we are staying in Blue Ocean. It´s lovely and peacefull place to stay, it´s located in the midle of Arugam Bay directly on the beach. Best for surfers, travelers and open minded people.

  • Really enjoyed our stay!

  • All was perfect

    Stella2017-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful acommodation basically on the beach. The cabana is very clean and cosy. Both girls are very helpful, gave us few tips for good restaurants in the neighbourhood and arranged for laundry (which is quite expensive here, but we were told in advance). We even shared a delicious sea food dinner which girls have prepared for us. I would definitely recommend to stay here, the site is wonderful and girls are always there to help.

    Barbora2017-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Real PEACE POINT. The place is full of love, chill and peace :). Two girls from Czech republic love what they do and you can really feel it. Place is new, clean and only a few steps from the sea. Hope I can return there one day!

    Zuzana2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location, and nice cobana with a powerful fan to keep you cool, great value for money... but this place could be so much better with a little love from the hosts, the garden, kitchen and beach area were not clean, quite a bit if litter which attracted ants. The toilet drains had a problem and smelt a bit. Terrible wifi which.belonged to the homestay next door, and loads of manky dogs.

    Nick2017-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location, directly at the beach with a nice beach bar. The cabanas are new and clean with basic furniture (also mosquitonet, which is important at night). In the evening it could be a bit noisy, because of the played music from the bar. Krístina & Johanna are very friendly and helpful! They do their best that you can enjoy your stay.

    Flo2017-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time here, Kristina was a very helpful host. Fantastic location right on the beach, about 10m from the sea! Also right next to a nice restaurant/bar on the beachfront. Really chilled atmosphere

    Matthew2017-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a place to stay in Arugam bay, you have found it!!! This place is perfect. It's metres away from the beach and walking distance to everything you need. The room is amazing!! It is clean, spacious and newly built. The hosts are two lovely girls from Prague. They are friendly and very caring, they helped me with everything I needed. I highly recommend this place! The vibes here are beautiful! When you book this place remember to book a few more days because you won't want to leave!! 10/10 thank you so much for a wonderful experience!!

    Our home-stay has the best location for surfers and travelers, lounges with hammocks and own natural restaurant. We have 4 rooms and 2 bungalows on the beach.
    A team of travelers has invested their time and experience to make this home-stay the best place to stay. We named it after the street dog Emma who welcomed us here and made us feel at home. We have 2 bungalows and 4 rooms, 2 open shadowed chill-out areas with hammocks and pillows and some big lounge pillows which we put on the beach. We have juice bar and every evening we setup small restaurant (3-4 tables) on the beach next to the fire and the ocean. Our beach is clean and good for daytime sunbathing as well as evening hangouts. Within the day and the evening we play chill-out, lounge and ambient music from our beach juice bar.
    Arugam is a moon-shaped sandy bay, fishermen village along the coast and we're right in the middle of it. Our beach is great to swim with waves, the main surfer's point is 8-10 min walking-with-the-board and there's a "baby point" nearby.
  • My wife and I cannot recommend Emma's highly enough. The location is outstanding (literally 50 yards from the sea and on the main road through Arugam bay), the staff are all exceptionally friendly and helpful, the food is great value and good quality too. The beach bar is beautiful and always busy, testament to the hard work of everyone there. The bungalow is everything you'd need for a beach hut, spotlessly clean, good mosquito net and cool enough with the fan to get a good nights sleep. The bed was a little firm but that wasn't an issue for us. As the bar is in front of the bungalow there is some noise but it closes relatively early. Again as it is a thin walled hut there is also noise from people and wildlife in the morning. There are however also rooms at Emma's which might be better for those with more sensitive hearing. Oh and Emma the dog is awesome - sit, paw and down all work in English and she loves a good head scratch.

    Matthew2016-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • As far as beach huts go, this place is awesome. Be prepared for some creepy crawlies, but if that's not for you, you shouldn't be staying on the beach. If you wanna chill, eat great food and party hard you'll have an amazing time, especially when you're 20 steps from the sea.

    Eve2017-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in the bungalow was great, the place couldn't be in a more idylic location. Everything was as expected and they really looked after us for our two night stay.

    Alex2016-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cabana on beach, great location on beach, friendly staff, nice food and drinks....

    Scott2016-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • It was a very pleasant stay at the cabana. The view was breathtaking and the room was very clean. Asanka was also an extremely nice and helpful host. The only disadvantage was the missing mosquito net, however, a mosquito plug was provided. All in all, I would definitely recommend is place!

    Rosa-Marie2015-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the beach cabana for 4 nights and would recommend it to anyone coming to Arugam. It is superb value for money - fairly cheap but located right in the heart of Arugam Bay, on the beach where you can walk to restaurants/bars/surf shops etc. The cabana was simple, clean and cool at night. Waking up to see and hear the waves was the perfect start to a day in Arugam. The guys were helpful and friendly, and provided recommendations for where to eat and surf. Thanks very much.

    Alex2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • nice place directly at the beach. friendly staff and definitely a good place to stay. WiFi didn't work for the whole stay though.

    Tom2016-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • We only intended on staying at the bungalow for a week, but after literally an hour of being there we decided to extend our stay for our whole trip! Daria is very lovely, she welcomed us and was so helpful when we told her our bags had been lost in transit at the airport, she assured us she would keep the phone close by and if the airport called that she will come see us straight away. The bungalow was amazing (is 20 steps to the water) and had the most beautiful view, best places i have ever stayed. Small onsite cafe with delicious fruit for breakfast and the Sri Lankan curry with coconut sambul and Dahl was very tasty and well priced!! There are tons of restaurants nearby all a short walk away. The main surfing point is a 5 minute walk up the beach and you can see the break from the bungalow. Asanka is the most helpful honest person, he organised everything for us, Yala Safari (we seen leopards), tuk-tuk to surf breaks and helped us with our transfer back to colombo via the scenic tea plantations. All the staff at Emma Bungalow were so friendly and helpful, the whole vibe of the place is relaxed and happy. We were sad to go but we will be back to stay here. Thanks again, Jarad & Naomi

    Charming, rustic & full of character, our comfortable bungalow is located 10 mins walk from town & the main point. There's an open plan master bedroom, living room, bathroom & kitchen area opening onto a shaded porch. The second bedroom is separate with single and double beds. Both have a/c. Surrounded by a small, lovely, private garden with it's own entrance and lots of shade, the bungalow shares a compound with a larger house & garden and is safe & secure.
    Rustic but functional, open plan with a lovely garden (a lady comes in to do laundry. Please let us know so we can let her know when you wish to have your sheets or towels changed) Nice atmosphere & safe for kids due to the enclosed garden. We can provide 2 extra mattresses for kids in the 2 master double bed rooms. Aside from the main house there is a smaller house, with a double room, an extra very basic bathroom and a laundry room between.
    Slightly off the beaten track, a short walk from the beach and town, tucked away and secluded.
  • Monica's place is really lovely, we enjoyed it a lot. We even extended our stay on our second day for a couple of more days. We will really miss Biscuit and the kittens. The house is just a small walk away from the beach and the shops/restaurants. There is a place nearby to buy alcohol. Overall it was a great stay and I would recomend it!

    Yonca Lina2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Monica's place. The house is lovely and the garden absolutely great! The house is calm, great for a stay with kids, which we appreciated. It is however a bit far from the main town (We used tuk-tuk most of the time as transporting both boards and baby on foot was too complicated :) ). Monica was very helpful and replied quickly to all our inquiries, helping in arranging safari, transportation etc. She is also an excellent yoga teacher! We recommend the place to anyone wanting a calm "oasis" near Arugam.

    Joanna2017-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Here's a list of what our group of 5 thought was brilliant about this property: - great checkin. We were given everything needed to settle into a late night arrival, including being able to order some much needed drinks and takeaway food from a great local pizza place - location wise this property is away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip, yet is only ten mins walk away from it - it's also 200m walk from the only off licence for 42km! helpful! - good cooking facilities, with all cutlery and utensils being new - Monica does not live too far away, so any minor niggles/queries were able to be sorted quickly - And last but not least the kittens were adorable and the dog extremely friendly!

    John2017-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • The nicest bungalow I've been in. Perfect if you want a quiet place close to town. Also, whatever you do, order their pizza. It's one of the best pizzas I've ever had. We really enjoyed our stay!

    Thomas2017-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Séjour très agréable. Monica et son partenaire étaient disponibles à toute demande de notre part. L'appartement est très bien équipé et est situé à moins de 10 minutes à pieds de l'animation de la rue principale d'Arugam Bay. Leurs animaux sont adorables et très sociables.

  • Out of season this is a paradise. Very clean very quiet and 15 m from the beach. Garden and cabanas are nicely done and being able to use the kitchen saves a lot of money avoiding the mediocre and expensive restaurants. Would always come back.

    Michaela2017-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Beach Cap was one of the greatest places we ever been. Next to the beach, its perfect located for a nice surfing-session! You can rent your board next to the Beach Cap and if you need any help, the whole crew managed everything for you :-) It was really really clean, more then you would ever expect so close to the beach! Try the 'Why not' a great place with good food and nice people next to the Beach Cap! Enjoy!

    Rebecca2017-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • BeachCab is in the ideal location; very close to the beach but also a short walk to restaurants and shops. The room was very clean and the rooms are shaded enough that the lack of aircon is not an issue. We loved our stay and highly recommend staying here.

  • Best Travel Experience Ever Our time at Elephant Road was off the charts incredible. Our host Michael is a special human being. He knows Arugam Bay inside out and has a wealth of wisdom and experience to share. We met a lot of people in our three weeks in Sri Lanka and Michael, a kind, genuine. and passionate person, was one of the most memorable . The room experience itself was also exceptional. The beds were spacious and comfortable. The breakfast and coffee was AMAZING. The AC was such a luxury and worked great. Michael set us up with everything from amazing surf lessons to dining experiences. He made it his mission to make our stay extraordinary - and he succeeded.

  • Really nice airy room, very tasty breakfast and helpful hosts. Shame we couldn't stay longer and enjoy their Jungle BBQ!

    Paul2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful three nights here and wished we could have stayed longer. It is a very friendly relaxed place, near enough to the beach to be convenient, but away from the main bustle. Our family room was huge with a lovely bathroom, good towels and a beautiful generous bed. It had a veranda with planters chairs where we could sit and read. Our children stayed in a cabana which was more basic but very good value. It was only cramped because Rafaella, the lovely owner allowed us to squeeze our three daughters in the two bed cabana as we had brought an extra guest. She was so friendly and she and her husband Sudu have worked hard to make this place lovely. There is a good large covered restaurant area where you can also just sit and be social ( and sometimes play with their beautiful baby daughter!) The food was very good- the coconut curd fruit and honey bowl for breakfast was particularly popular and was absolutely delicious! The highlight of our stay was the jungle barbecue- a jeep excursion in land, run by Sudu and a friend. We saw loads of wildlife and then had a truly amazing fish and prawn barbecue in the middle of nowhere on a massive flat rock overlooking paddy fields. There was a very generous amount of delicious food and we came back in the dark, spotting elephants , porcupine etc in the jeep headlights. A magical trip which was very good value. Thank you for a wonderful relaxing few days.

    Diana2015-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Loved every minute of my stay with Sudu, Rafaella and of course Lucky and Coco. A real friendly, family environment at East Surf Cabanas, Clean and comfortable accomodation, fantastic food cooked by Sudu, fresh caught wild boar curry one day, fresh line caught tuna curry the next.. fantastic ! ( the cookery class is well worth the experience and incredibly reasonable given the info and the meal at the end - delicious!) Sudu and Rafaella really make you feel welcome in Arugam Bay, recommending places to eat, and i even got a tour to the lagoon with Sudu and Gayan the tuk tuk driver to spot Crocs and other wildlife.. ..Not forgetting the deep muscle massage from Rafaella .. excellent.. all in all a thoroughly enjoyable stay that i would recommend to anyone.

  • First of all Raffaela and her team are just lovely. We felt immediately as a part of this family. The resort is easy to find and offers you everything you need during your stay in Arugam Bay. We stayed three nights in the treehouse and it was awesome. Very bright, clean and spacious with a stunning open air shower. Overall five stars for the east surf experience and the buffalo curd in the morning!

    Tobi2016-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is so cool. Open air cabana, rustic feel but new and well-designed. Rafaella was a lovely host, she took care of everything. The food was fantastic. Free bikes for a quick ride into town or the beach, and Sonny is usually around for longer tuk tuk rides. Tried to extend my stay but they were fully booked!

  • Nice place with direct access to the beach. Cabana is simple and basic but it is a great place to relax! You have everything you need! Staff seems to be a bit lazy; just watching TV and smoking the whole day what makes me feel a bit unconfortable because this is not what I expected. However, location is good and food was delicious. Would be great to establish a REAL rubbish and mit to collect hundret of empty bottles and other things just besudelt the kitchen/bar!

  • We had a wonderful time at The Folly! Our Cabana was basic but clean with a good bathroom. Don't expect luxury but it's exactly what you need for a stay at Arugam Bay. It's right on the beach so you can swim/sunbathe metres from your door. The food was great - we particularly loved the fish barbecue on the beach and the amazing shakshuka! Thanks for a wonderful stay

  • There was some confusion about our reservation, however the team solved the problem immediately and gave us a room in the adjacent hotel with is owned by the same guys. So we can't say anything about the accommodations in The Folly. But the location is great and the vibes there are totally nice. We were allowed to take advantage of the premises as if we were Folly guests so we got an idea what it must be like. The staff really does its best to make sure that everyone is having a great time.

    Christoph2015-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed my stay at the Folly. It's a gorgeous setting, right on the beach. The staff are lovely, welcoming and really helpful. We met other travelers while we were there, and the place is set up so that it is easy to meet people if you want to or you can just relax by yourself if that's more your kind of holiday. I would definitely recommend this as somewhere to stay in Sri Lanka.

  • We stayed in a cabana for four nights over Christmas. It was a great experience. The cabanas have a sitting area, feet wash area, and a strong ceiling fan. The employees are helpful. We emailed asking for a second cabana and they booked one for us. They were also helpful for information. For Christmas, they had a fire on the beach with lovely music. I would recommend this place.

    New place with good finishing’s, 50 meters from the shore line. Great getaway with privacy, excellent for families, couples or individual travellers that like peace and nature. The space is very bright, airy, and spacious. The room has a king size solid teak wood bed with mosquito net. For additional comfort, AC and fan are available; the bathroom is large and has an indoor garden. There is also a kitchen and dining cabana available for use.
    Room Mar - Is spacious, plain, and simple. The interiors and furnishings, were locally sourced or made in the region. The rooms have a lot of natural light; a fan and AC are also installed for additional comfort. King size bed in solid teak wood which can be installed with mosquito if needed. The front porch is in sand and has hammocks and lounge chairs for chilling. There is also a kitchen and dining cabana available for use.
    A very quiet, friendly, and safe neighborhood. At the beach its very interesting observing the fishermen bring ashore the large nets full of fish. If you help they will reward you with fish. Walk south through the beach to crocodile rock for surfing where you have long and easy rides. On the way, there stop by the lagoon where you can see herds of elephants (go during sunset). Walking north to the "main point" you will find the best surf spot in all Eastern Province; reef break for more experience surfers where you can get rides up to 800 meters on the same wave.

    HISTORY Arugam Bay Surf Resort is managed and run by five brothers. The business traces its roots back to the 1970s and was started by their father. Once a small fishing village, the young man had come to Arugam Bay, where he made a living by selling rotti to the weary fishermen, who would usually stop for a bite either on their way to the sea, or upon returning. As time went on, with this rotti gaining popularity among the tourists who came to visit the area, he put up a few cabanas for his fatigued travelers to rest. Initially, the Surf Resort was called Arugambay Hilton. The name was coined by an Australian who had visited the place at one time and even helped its owner prepare dishes to suit the tastes and styles of its international visitors. The name was later changed to Arugambay Hillton and then to its current name Arugambay Surf Resort. Later, the sons joined with their father helping him develop and improve the guesthouse. Since then, the guesthouse has evolved with time, introducing new services and facilities for guests and attracting more and more people.
    WILDLIFE KUMANA NATIONAL PARK Home to over 200 species of birds, including rare and migratory birds, the Kumana National Park is just over 10 km away from the Arugam Bay Surf Resort. It can be reached via the Panama – Kudumbigala Sanctuary. Kumana is best visited during May, June and July. The mangroves of the Kumana Villu, a 200-hectare natural swamp lake, which is fed by the Kumbukkan Oya, is filled with birds at this time. Popular birds spotted in the park includes pelicans, painter’s stork, spoonbills, white ibis and herons. Hoards of wildlife also inhabit the park, among them, leopards, elephants, deer, fox, wild boar and sloth bear. LAHUGALA Catch a glimpse of the elephants as they freely stroll through the Lahugala elephant corridor. They are best seen before day breaks or at sunset, during the dry season in July and August. POTTUVIL Experience the beauty of Pottuvil and catch a glimpse of its rich wildlife with the Pottuvil Lagoon Eco Tour ADVENTURE PANAMA About 10 miles south of Arugam Bay, the sand dunes of Panama stretch along the coast towards Pottuvil. Miles of unexplored sand invites you to try out your very own jeep safari. You can drift on the sand, drive over the humps or simply climb a dune to watch the waves below you
  • We had a great stay, could have stayed longer. Great location and very nice staff. Will be back for sure

    Relax in a tranquil setting by the Sea, where you could view fantastic bird life and if lucky spot elephants in the garden. Close proximity to fabulous wildlife sanctuaries and archaeological sites. . You’ll love my place because of beach, nature reserves, Arugambay strip, fantastic surfing and peanut farm is just round the corner.
  • we spend 2 weeks in this house with 10 friends in total. We didn't meet Mary but she phones to know if everything was ok. The location is really great, surrounding by nature and few meter form a prestine beach. Siril and his wife are taking care of us and prepare really good food. Siril is a fantastic man, good musicien too ! we spend a really good time with him and his familly. THe house is very simple with a nice veranda. One bedroom and a dormitory. THe only thing to change is may be the matress and mosquitos net, but it's for sure due to the humidity and sea. We spend a really good moment anyway ! thanks

    Simple, private, clean and comfortable wooden beach cabana. Double and single bed with attached private en-suite bathroom. Secure with direct access on to the main beach at Arugam Bay. Drinks and meals available and 4G WiFi in all areas!
    You are in the best location in Arugam Bay, at the centre point of the bay. Easy access to everything you need, local shops and restaurants are a 5 min walk away.
  • The welcome was a little chilled but so was the whole place so that's just fine! Clean little cabanas with an extra safe cupboard to lock your valuables away. The breakfast was delicious especially the fruit salad (Best I have ever had)! The do a lot of stuff here including laundry and it is right on the beach and a little quieter out of town which was perfect.

    Michael2015-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • The cabanas were beautifully located right on the sand, looked just like the pictures. Had a wonderful time swinging gently in the hammocks in the cute garden area. Would recommend!

  • Riaan was an amazing host. Me and 2 friends stayed at his place for 1 week and he was extremely accommodating. We constantly had friends over at our place and he was always very chilled with us all being there. The beach huts are comfortable and clean and right on the beach with a beautiful restaurant on the beach. All the boys he has working there are very friendly and always keen to get involved. We all had surf boards that we didn't want to travel with after leaving Arugam bay and Riaan went as far as to store our boards for us for 1 week and then have them sent to Colombo to meet us at the airport. I highly recommend staying at his place. He is an all round super nice guy! Thanks so much Riaan ! The SA boys

  • We had an incredible stay for just 2-3 days in Arugam Bay! Rihan was very good to us, always answering our questions, being flexible with out queries. Stay golden 100% worth the trip and the money, we will definitely be coming back!

    Victor2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely great experience at Stay Golden! Rihan is super-friendly, we spend a lot of time with him mingling and laughing. The cabanas are super-clean and meters away from the beach and all the attractions of Arugam bay! The food he cooks is delicious, you cannot pass by without trying the fruit salad and the wraps. We aslo had a delicious sea food, candle-lit bbq dinner under the stars! We'll definitly go back there again! Cheers Rihan!

    Joey2015-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Rihan was a very lovely host. In fact, all of the staff were very sweet. The cabin was nice and the open-air bathroom was cool. Good luck to the crew at Golden Bay!

    Enjoy all that Arugam Bay has to offer from the privacy of your own home. Our beach side villa is an oasis away from the crowded guest houses that line the main road. Happy Panda is a serene hideaway featuring a lush garden that is tucked away on a quiet side street only 50 meters from the shoreline. You can relish in the convenience of restaurants, markets and bars just steps from this peaceful home away from home.
    Escape the heat, crowds and traffic as soon as you step off the street and into your own tropical paradise complete with plenty of shade, trees, plants and flowers. Relax in the courtyard on comfy pillows or take a nap in one of the hammocks. Happy Panda can accommodate 6-7 adults and is also kid friendly with three large bedrooms with attached private bathrooms. We can accommodate any desired sleeping arrangements and would be happy to move the beds around to suit any couple, family or group bookings. Along with a relaxation inducing open air living room, dotted with cushions and fun accent rugs, Happy Panda also has a fully stocked kitchen featuring all of the comforts of home. Happy Panda is a house on a private area. So you will have it all for yourself: house, kitchen, living area, amazing shady garden and even separate bathroom for your guests.
    For the surfers: Happy Panda is only a short walk (or a VERY long paddle) to the "Main Point" and is directly in front of “Soul Rock” which is great for beginners. The other surf spots are a short Tuk Tuk ride away. The Beach: Unlike most of the seaside in Arugam Bay, the beach in front of Happy Panda is not cluttered with fishing boats, offering the perfect place to relax and watch the waves.
  • We stayed at the happy panda for two nights as six friends and had a wonderful time! The place is well located in A-Bay and has an amazing veranda. Communication was fast and easy, would come back any time!

    Christopher2017-10-25T00:00:00Z

  • We had a amazing time at Fawas surf camp. Everything looks like the pictures, it is very clean and all the staff is super friendly and very helpful.Fawas is the best surf teacher we ever met. We had great morning and evening surf sessions every day. Will defenetly come again! Can highly recommend Fawas place!

    Rebecca2016-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • The camp it is a cozy and clean, but located a bit remote from Argument. However, this is compensated for by the good camp-spirit! Great people, great camp, great yoga, great surf - would really recommend this place!

    Thomas2016-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • We've had an incredible time at SAFA surf camp. We've met amazingly nice people from everywhere. Staff was very friendly. Surf lessons were very well taught, with tailored fit programs and video classes. The place itself is great, very close to most interest points, yet very calm and by the beach. Cabanas are nice as well. We would definitely go back. Thanks for everything.

    Constance2017-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • It's a nice and quiet place for people who really want to surf! If you want to party you better look for a hotel in Arugam bay town, if you want to surf then this is the number 1! I had some awesome days there!

    Jette2016-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Like on the pictures, nice accommodation with a great location (not in the Main Street but in a quiet place at 10 min away). A very friendly mindset, focus on surf. We spent 2 weeks and met nice people. We definitely recommend the safa surf camp !

    Chloé2017-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • The Surfcamp is lovely! If Fawas, the owner of the Surfcamp, wouldn't try it with all the girls it would be even nicer.

    Sandra2017-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • The rooms are nice and clean, located in a paradise like area just a bit outside the city. Just step through the gate and have a walk on a beautiful, almost private beach. The best part is the team, they teach you surfing, cook you original Sri Lankan dishes or anything else you want and tuktuk-drive you to the main part of Arugam Bay whenever you like. Highly recommended!

    Simon2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at the camp and were sad to leave. The cabins are simple but comfortable and there is plenty of space to relax in. The place is a bit out of town (but not too much) which we both liked. The people working on the camp were lovely and the atmosphere was really good. The breakfasts were also great. Just one thing: the prices weren't made clear to us so make sure you ask beforehand. Everything was good value except the lessons which were quite expensive. We would have liked some feedback on our surfing too but missed out. We loved Mamas and Nafeel who really added to our stay!

    Just 250 meters from the beach hidden from Arugambay main street, Deen´s cabanas offer a private accomodation inside of Deen´s villa area. Within this peacefull place we are offering clean, newly built rooms with the inside bathrooms, comfortable mattraces, free wi-fi. Our place is having 24hours security and free parking. We are offering both AC and non AC room, single double and family rooms. Our helpful staff will assist you with arranging safari or lagoon tours, car or bike renting.
  • Deen villas was a great stay for us, away from the hustle and noise of the beach and main road but still very close to everything. The room was clean and very spacious and the shower was brilliant, the pressure was very good. We met Tomas on the last day but his staff were very helpful. We saw a troop of monkeys on our roof which was really cool and they caused no problems and there were some friendly dogs. Overall we would definitely recommend Deen Villas and would happily stay again when we next visit Arugam bay.

    Peter2017-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 weeks and had a great time. The rooms are quite new, spacey and had a nice bathroom. We went for the non AC room and it was fine, not to hot even during the day. The location of the place is a short walk to the Main Street and the beach but this turned out to be advantageous as it was so quiet especially during the weekend parties. I'd recommend hiring a bike from them, makes getting around super easy! Overall we had a great stay, would definitely recommend! Tomas was also a great host, always making sure that we were enjoying our stay. Thanks again for having us! From Cory and Georgia :)

  • Siyath and his staff went above and beyond for us during our stay. It was my boyfriend's birthday and I had prearranged a cake through Siyath, who kindly organised for it to be made and delivered on the day. He also was in contact before we arrived and at hand with all my questions when planning birthday celebrations. Whenever I had a question or a problem Siyath was very quick to help and resolve any issue. I loved our stay, the whole place is bright and clean and it's a peaceful place to escape from the party vibe of Arugam Bay. Oh and the iced tea on arrival was amazing! Thank you, I will be back!

  • We very much enjoyed our stay at this beautifully designed little hotel in Arugam Bay. Siyath, Rishad and his colleagues were very welcoming and helpful. Had great talks with them. Just a remark: Room cleaning is on request which we weren't aware of in the beginning. We expected it to be included at such a comfy place. If you wish for a clean-up you have to ask for it proactively. Once you know, everything works fine.

  • Our stay at Cozy Bay was super nice. The hotel is very close to the beach, very clean and wonderfully decorated. The food is slightly different compared to the repetitive menu offered in general in the country, something that we appreciated after a long trip around Sri Lanka. In our opinion, this is the best place to stay in Arugam Bay, with very friendly staff and all the amenities needed to spend your vacation. We highly recommend it!

    Elisa 2017-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy Bay is a splendid and chilled out little hotel on the main drag in Arugam Bay, two minutes away from the beach. It is recently renovated; the rooms are spotless and tucked away between the beach and the road, and so are quiet. The restaurant downstairs serves a delicious dinner and breakfast. Siyath was very helpful in providing directions and facilitating our stay.

    Florian2017-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • You gotta try the Sri Lankian food with the amazing cook there ! For breadfast the pancake is a must , dinner definitely Sri Lankian curry to finish your beach day. The manager has been super helpful even before we booked the place ! 2 mins walk to the beach and 10 mins walk to Main Point beach to have a surf. Been a very relaxing and lazy stay for us as the bed is way too comfy !

    Great location directly on the beach in the midle of Arugam Bay. Peacefull place with a lot of palms for everybody. We have 2 rooms and 2 bungalows.
    Hello, cheers from Kristina and Johana from Prague/Czech republic. Currently we are staying in Blue Ocean. It´s lovely and peacefull place to stay, it´s located in the midle of Arugam Bay directly on the beach. Best for surfers, travelers and open minded people. Owner of this stay has 2 new cabanas here since May 2017! He has also 2 rooms for rent. Come and enjoy this great place and nature with us.
  • The room is located directly at the beach. The girls are very friendly and help you with everything you may need . Additionally there have been two dog mothers with 4 puppies each for free cuddling. The only remark is the too thin matteress which make you feel every part of the bed.

    Sina2017-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • The two girls are very nice, friendly and helpful! The cabana is basic, but clean and cozy with a big garden! It is located direct at the beach, only 20 meters to the sea! There is a beach restaurant/bar, where you can use all the facilities (chairs, lounge-pillows, beach chairs). The bar is playing music from noon to midnight, however we could sleep. We definitely recommend to stay at this place!

  • A must stay! Kristina made us feel so so welcome as soon as we arrived and we got settled in with a coconut drink and showed to our amazing private hut. You can hear the waves from the room and its 10 steps to the beach front. She was very accommodating and got us adapter plugs etc. Recommended it already to fellow travellers and I will continue to do so. Thank you for our stay. Will hopefully be back soon x

    Norbert2017-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is probably the best location in Arugambay if you want just relax and swim. The bungalow is right on the beach, only few steps from the ocean. Our hosts were so nice and helpful. The only thing was the privacy of the room, because of thin walls we could hear everything from the next room and also from outside. But it was so valuable and I recommend this paradise to all travelers.

    Holoch2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • We've booked just 2 nights in kristinas beach house. It was a great time that we're booked 4 nights more. Kristina and johanna are super helpfull and open minded. The cabana is close to the sea. Wake up, walk 5 meters to the beach and take a morning bath in the sea. In front of the cabana is also a the emma bar, a must to be in the evening. In the end of vacation it was a big experience and also a relaxed gime.

  • I warmly recommend the cabin on the beach :) it's amazing to wake up in the morning and have the sea in your "garden". The girls are nice. The cabin is next to a beach bar where you can have a breakfast or something to eat during the day. So there will be some people enjoying the sunbeds with you.

  • Our host made us feel very welcome and we had a lovely time at Arugam bay! The room was good value for money and very close to the beach. We were able to do laundry for a small fee and were also able to use their kitchen to make our own food. Not all of the staff spoke English but all were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place. :D

  • Uwais was a fantastic host, and the room was exactly as described. I stayed in other places in Arugam Bay, but this was by far the best guesthouse. Highly recommended.

  • Brilliant location, right next to the beach and handy for shops and restaurants. Uvais and his staff were very welcoming and friendly. The room I was given wasn't like the one on the photos, it was quite dark, however the bed was comfortable and I had everything I needed. Breakfast was nice but is not included in the Airbnb payment. Overall, can recommend!

  • Staying at Sea Rock was an absolute pleasure. The rooms are beautiful designed, spacious and very clean. Uwais and his family are wonderful polite, respectful and happy hosts who are always willing to assist. Service and communication was excellent. This spot is perfect for people who want to be close to the beach and away from the more rowdy part of town. This place really attracts nice people whether they be couples, singles, groups or families.

  • The Sea Rock and Beach Hotel is a family run business by male members of the family as it is common in Sri Lanka. Though not all spoke English, we felt comfortable and not disturbed.

  • Some friends and I stayed here in August and had a fantastic time! Everyone here is so helpful and accommodating - sorting out everything from taxis to colombo to room transfers. I needed three rooms at peak season at late notice and they managed to sort it for me. The rooms are good, and it's really nice to have a big breakfast on the sand overlooking the beach after a morning surf and chilling with Dill, Afri and the other friendly guests. Good value, great people. Would recommend to anyone.
