It wasn't what we expected. The name of the place has a better vibe than the place itself! While it has an 'outdoor' feel to the property, it was not so clean. House cleaning needs improving !! Lots of cob webs, loads of insects, and dogs who bark all night. Beds are not the most comfortable. In the chill out... More

We stayed here for 4 nights during the off season so nothing was open. However we didn't need to leave the Hideaway. Amazing food, I mean amazing, 3 times the prices of the street food but seriously good. Super clean for a mostly open air resort. Staff friendly and constantly cleaning and sweeping. The rooms are basic but still comfortable.... More

We just stayed here for 1 night and although we really enjoyed it, we did have a few criticisms of the place. But first for the good things.....we really enjoyed the rooms, which were in keeping with the laid back, relaxed atmosphere of Arugam Bay. This is not a 5 star resort location and you will not find such places... More

Laid back "cool" vibe to the place and the restaurant is genuinely really good but you'd want to have a fair few beers on board to get any sleep. The bar is open late(ish), dogs bark all night and some sort of mammal was running on the metal roof of our hut trying to get into our room. The huts... More

We have travelled extensively through Asia and Europe and never experienced the " to cool" attitude of the management here, from the time we arrived we felt Sharon was " over " the whole season. Maybe we just arrived on a bad day or something .Her dog bit my forearm and drew blood the dog was allowed to wonder around... More

As the final stop of our 2 week trip we didnt think we could be any more amazed by the country or the people, however Hideaway was the best ending to a holiday you could ask for. The accommodation was beautiful, clean and in a perfect location for the main beach. The staff were some of the nicest people you... More

We stayed at this wonder resort in October and had the time of our lives…..I cannot say enough about the food. It is absolutely wonderful. Sharon and her staff take great pains to ensure that their guests are well fed and looked after. Sharon even drove us around the area to visit various sites. I highly recommend this resort and...

We only stayed for one night, but it was very comfortable, and the garden and hang-out area was beautiful. It's across the street from the beach, so very easy to walk to. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and helped us arrange our transport out the next day, as well as suggested we visit the nearby Peanut Farm beach,... More

we had a very pleasant stay here during our three nights at Arugam Bay. We stayed in a double room in the main villa above the restaurant. It is worth mentioning the rooms are quite open, with material covering the gaps. This wasn't an issue for us at all, in fact I found it quite quaint. The mosquito next kept... More
