We just loved our stay in Aguram Bay and this had a lot to do with our stay at Hideaway Resort. It's by far one of the best places to stay and it has such great food... some of the very best in the town. The accommodation is lovely and comfortable. Huge bathrooms and good amenities. Everyone who works here... More

Quiet, central with friendly staff and cute bungalow. Loved the outside bathroom and jazz music in the evening. Lovely bungalows - private and very comfortable, away from the pretty main street of Arugam Bay.

the people are what make this place awesome; the boys at the bar, the fellas at the restaurant, the owner, the other patrons, and of course Asanka! they take care of everything, especially if you have kids. My son was refusing to leave as he felt so 'at home' there, he loved every minute of it. the other part that... More

After reading the reviews we were really excited about staying here. The bungalows are well designed and the grounds lovely, it's clearly one of the nicest looking places to stay in Arugam Bay. We'd planned to stay 7 nights, but left after two as we were so disappointed with the service. I don't think the female owner/manager could've been less... More

We were a little disappointed by the room at first, which was fairly basic, although very spacious it felt a little empty, even with the double bed and two kids beds.however the room was more than made up for by the ambience in the resort. The food was truly delicious, and given we had been travelling for over two months... More

This is the second year that we've come from our home in Dubai for a stay at Hideaway Resort. We're used to the seven star hotels and fancy restaurants of Dubai but the reason we keep coming back is simple. It is special. There's something about this family run place that we just don't see in this day and age... More

I'm here on my last day here at the Hideaway Resort and very sad to be leaving. Simply the best food in town, Sharon (the owner/manager) is a gem - my son is the fussiest eater on the planet and is going away raving about the food! The hideaway bar is the a perfect place to kick back after a... More

Hideway is a great place to stay except that rooms are full of unfriendly insects not to mention bigger animals like rats. The beauty of the place hides rooms not very clean. Our children got lice there. The way the hostess manages her guests is quite rude. Always the feeling that you are disturbing her. Not to mention that she... More

Thank you for your review. Isn't it amazing how two reviews before mention how spotless the place is and now this!! 'rooms are full of unfriendly insects not to mention bigger animals like rats' As mentioned in our welcome letter, Arugam Bay is a place teeming with wildlife although they are seldom harmful - it's part and parcel of the...

The best place in ArugamBay and not only! Best crew, cleaning and service. Reccomended If you stay here it's the same that your house. Ask to the crew! The restaurant it's sure the best in SRILANKA!!! Every day new plate. Super breakfast: try the tropical pancake!
