Ranga's Beach Hut was a great choice for our stay in Arugam Bay. We didn't have a reservation but the staff was really helpful and offered to move us to the beach house in the front directly at the beach after staying one night in a more basic room in the back of the area. The hut right at the... More

We stayed here 2 nights in sep 2014. Good place to meet people, nice athmosphere. Friday night bbq is cool! Cheap rooms, but bath/ washroom facilities are below basic and not really clean. No linen nor towels were provided to us. Wifi worked well, and the place has its own generator (nice as power cuts are common)

In off season there are not many places to go in Arugam and Ranga's is by far and away the busiest. Not everyone stays here but they all come for the food and for the atmosphere. The savoury pancake comes highly recommended! The staff were really friendly and let us into our room before official check-in which was really appreciated... More

In fact we did not stay here. We ate dinner. Looks like group of muslims running the restaurant. Since we are local , staff were ignorant us. It took them 35 minutes to deliver the food. meal Portion is very less. But the price is too much for a local. Surrounding place is very dark & no enough lights.

This place seems to be a bit of a legend online. We found it through an article in The Guardian. When we arrived, we were made to wait for our room to be cleaned. We sat around for a good hour (wanting to order food, but being effectively ignored in the restaurant). Finally we went up and asked if our... More

After finding Ranga's online & reading the wealth of great reviews we booked in early to secure ourselves a treehouse! We'd been so excited to stay but when we arrived we were really disappointed to find we'd been given a very dirty, dark room with ants everywhere. I can only think that from reading the reviews, we were given a... More

After weeks of reading people's feedback here we can finally rate the beach hut. We're currently up in our tree house waiting for our driver to pick us up to take us to the airport. We had an amazing week here. The staff is amazing, so nice and friendly and they'd go out of their way to help you. Food... More

Very nice roots place to stay, good food, good people working in that place. After a few days you fell like at home. Thank you for the great disconnection. Definitely a place to remember and come back.

We were very lucky that when we got there at 7am the villa was free and just needed to be cleaned. The villa way only 5000lkr and it has 3 rooms with 2 single beds in each which were pushed together but we separated and has 2 bathrooms. Great beach vibe where people chill out and eat the amazing food... More
