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

My friend and I loved beach hut so much that we ended up staying for a week... and then returning ten days later for another week! The staff are what make this place so so fab. They work such long shifts but are always so helpful and keen to chat and just generally happy. The second best thing is the... More

We stayed for one night (planned to stay for 5) but arrived and our room had 2 cockroaches, bed bugs, sandy sheets, mozzie nets full of holes (and covered in brown stuff) and the shower was broken and made the lights flicker when you turned it on! Food was ok!

Being a solo traveller can wear at times but beach hut has such a good vibe you get sucked into the gang as soon as you arrive! Everyone is super friendly and chilled which is probably why everyone ends staying longer than planned! Service and food very good, shared bathrooms are totally usable. Staying in beach hits is pretty fun... More

Great vibe, Kuna and the other staff very helpful, awesome place to meet people, sit around in the common area use the good wi fi, drink a beer or eat something and share surf and travel stories. Meal of the day everyday very good and many come here to eat from surrounding hotels/hostels. Very popular place in Arugam for good... More

I had such a wonderful time here! As the name suggests, you actually do stay in cool huts on the beach, either ground level or on stils, and it is so nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean on the beach. However, what really makes this place so special is the people running it! Kuna, the manager... More

Cheap, rustic, on the beach and a perfect backpacker/hostel vibe. And really good wifi! So if you don't mind no ac and shared bathrooms, and want to live in cool huts (ground level or up on stilts): go here. We lucked out and got an available room by just showing up, but the place seemed to be full for days... More

We loved this place!! What's not to like! Set in arugam bay which is lush, this place is run by really helpful people!! The prices for rooms are really great as is the food! Everyone sits down to eat together and chat over dinner in a really relaxed enjoyable atmosphere! I would definitely go back!

It's just the perfect place to spend your holiday! The people who work there have a warm heart, are really friendly, always laughing,... You will meet a lot of new, wonderfull people. We were planned to stay only two days but stayed a week because it was so lovely! It's also really cheap! every day you have the 'daily dish'... More
