Stayed her for nearly three weeks in one of the small beachside Cabanas. The rooms are simple but very cozy, some with their own bathrooms. Very friendly staff that are always there to help you. The vibe of the whole place is excellent. With its own restaurant, laundry service, scooter and pedal cycle hire that makes everything easy and close... More

Went here for Sri Lankan food on the recommendation of another hotel owner. But ended up ordering Fried rice etc intead. It was good. We didn't stay here overnight, but the setup/rooms looked interesting. The service was very good and the ambience was also great. Relaxed and calm.

I showed up to Arugam Bay in the off season with reservations at a different guesthouse - turns out that one had closed up, so I followed the road and stumbled upon the Beach Hut. What a lovely find! Accommodations are pretty rustic, with lots of outdoor space in the main area and a nice beach vibe. The food is... More

This place had a really relaxed atmosphere and cool staff. Our bungalow was directly on the beach, had its own small terrace and was super cheap. There is a slack line set up which made for hours of fun. food at the restaurant was really well priced and always absolutely delicious. They make really good tea and coffee too. Stayed... More

I don't often write 'average' reviews but I must say that I left Beach Hut feeling a little average. After traveling in Sri Lanka and having amazing service everywhere we went we were excited to get to Beach Hut because everyone had told us how amazing it was. On arrival we were walked around by the manager who was very... More

The food there is very good, It is a really peace place to chill-out at any time. It's totally different from the other places in Arugambay. I met some great people in that place. If you want to rent a room in Beach Hut you must reserved a long time ago. It's a very requested location.

Beach Hut is the perfect place for relaxing and a true Sri Lankan experience. Definitely the best place to stay in Arugam Bay! We got a cabana just in front of the sea, quite spacious. The rooms are very basic so not the place to stay if you are looking for a fancy hotel but I would recommend it to... More

Good breakfast and adequate accomodation for a sensible price. People are not pushy here as in other places in Abay. All in all a very relaxed atmosphere that makes you want to come back. The evening meals an be highly recommended if you travel on low budget.

As we heard that it was a really good place and worth it in Abay we tried to book by email, by the website and by Facebook (weeks before), and we got nothing back. At the end, the day before we called and we made the booking of the beach cabana, they asked us to send a text message for... More
