My husband and I enjoyed three nights at Hideaway as part of our honeymoon tour of Sri Lanka. We stayed in a beautifully presented bungalow, complete with AC. The heat of A-Bay in August really means that AC is a must. We kept the bathroom door closed to keep the cool air from spilling out (part of the bathroom has... More

After reading lots of reviews we were looking forward to our stay at Hideaway. However we were disappointed. Of all the places we stayed this was the most unfriendly, you were not quite sure who was or wasn't staff. The power is dodgy, on our first afternoon when the power went off in our room when I tried to turn... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Hideaway is really beautiful and the manager Sharon is very welcoming and goes out her way to answer your questions. The rooms are very cosy, we had the best night sleep here during our whole stay in Sri Lanka! The food was delicious! They also have a really nice outside bar area that's great... More

After reading all Tripadvisor reviews we were looking most forward to our stay at Hideaway! A much needed holiday after being overworked we were excited for a relaxing stay in a quality room and decided to pay the extra price to stay at Hideaway. Upon arrival the resort itself looks lovely and has quite a boho hippie vibe which we... More

We stayed for 3 nights at hideaway in one of the non A/C rooms in the main house. Rooms are very simple, the bed was rock hard but we had comfortable pillows, hot water & a nice bathroom. The walls are only covered by white sheets so not much privacy, you can hear the conversations of people in the other... More

Hideaway is a rare find with individual bungalows, nice grounds, great owner & staff, a restaurant that serves fantastic food (well worth the price) and even Hideaway Blue cafe which serves great coffee and sandwiches.

The setting is of a secret enchanted garden but the real gem of this place were the friendly staff. It's a family owned and run business and it feels it - they look after the place like it's their own and treat you like a guest of the family. It was lovely to chill and chat to grandma and grandpa... More

My wife and I have just left after 4 fantastic days in Arugam Bay. There are great beaches, wildlife and a layed back atmosphere but the best is when you come 'home' to Hideaway and are treated so well. We have travelled a lot and this is our new benchmark. Great food, great vibe and truly great service. Sharon and... More

This is a treasure you must seek out if you stay in Arugam Bay. It is a super friendly, family owned and run business that aims for the best in every aspect. Absolutely fabulous food in the restaurant and for the early birds there is a small coffee and snack bar at the entrance to the Hideaway which serves not... More

My adult son, daughter and I stayed for five days at the Hideaway and it was one of the best aspects of our trip around Sri Lanka. We were warmly welcomed by Sharon after our car ride and began to relax as soon as we got settled in. It was extremely hot the week we stayed and I was very... More
