Words cant describe how much we enjoyed our four nights at the Hideaway. We arrived quite drained from our travels and within half an hour the vibe of this laid back place transformed us. The resort is very professionally run with a first class restaurant. The rooms are not 5 star but are still very nice. The happy hour type... More

I don't recommend accommodation much, but had to for Hideaway. Professional, friendly, excellent customer service and the best food and coffee in the area. Sharron, the owner, went out of her way to make sure our stay was the best experience it could have been. There is no beach view, but it is made up ten fold by the above.... More

Thank you to Asanka and Sharon for making my Partner and my stay enjoyable at Hideaway, we stayed in the bungalow for 3 nights and extended our stay for 1 more night where we had to be moved to a room at the front of the establishment. The staff are very helpful and attentive, the food was exquisite and my... More

The last seven days we stayed at the Hideaway Resort as one of my Son's is big into surfing. I was ready to relax after all the travelling and relax... More

We booked two nights here but only stayed one. It was a Saturday night and there bar was open late. We had a room in the main building on top of the restaurant (DO NOT BOOK THIS, it has not walls and you can here everything). At 10.45 pm I went down to complain about the music of the bar.... More

I only visited for drinks at the bar - but am so glad I did! My favourite place in Arugam Bay. Chilled out seating on the floor, an amazing choice of the best tasting cocktails. Met friends here two nights in a row for happy hour (6-7), which meant the drinks were a great price. The staff were incredibly lovely.... More

We had the most amazing time in Sri Lanka and our time spent at Hideaway was the standout without a questions. As a surfer A Bay was a magical destination for me and to go there with my wife and family was an amazing experience. My parents had been 30 years earlier and were back for my Dad's 60th! Hideaway...

We have just completed a week-long stay in Arugam Bay. We spent five nights at the Hideaway, and were sad to find them fully booked for the final two nights of our stay. I can't recommend the place highly enough. Sharon Tissera and her crew create a wonderful atmosphere where you feel like part of the family, welcomed into what... More

Dear Alex, What a pleasure it was to have you and the family stay - and then to have such a "small world moment" discovering mutual friends - That's what makes it all more worthwhile. Delighted that you enjoyed our little corner of the world and here's hoping you will be back to get away from it all! We look... More

From the moment I arrived, Sharon (The owner), she just made me feel like Hideaway was going to be my home, she is just amazing, as well as every single member of the staff. The food is by far, the best of Arugam and would easily compete in any European capital, she elaborates different plates all the time. Not only... More
