This was a first visit to the delights of Arugam Bay, but it was in the depths of the off season, so all a bit deserted and casual. The room was a creaky place on stilts overlooking a sitting area on the edge of the long and spectacular beach - roaring quite spectacularly at this time of year. It was comfortable enough, just, with a quirky bathroom not making any semblance of luxury. But we didn't expect any, given this was a place offering very good value for money. And not unpleasant to be lulled to sleep by the close-by breakers. The reception and restaurant were a little way back along a lane, with a small parking area and spread out tables under trees. It all promised to be cosy and a little exotic. We had two dinners and two breakfasts here, but they were not memorable and the service was somewhat casual too. I am prepared to put this disappointment (see other reviews) down to our being virtually the only guests - even the chef's entitled to a holiday. The most memorable experience of our stay here was a wonderful, nay sensational, safari in Kumana NP. For that, Beach Hut was a more than adequate base.

This was a great find! Best iced coffee in Sri Lanka! Had a great selection of food, we ended up here for breakfast and lunch! The service was a bit slow some times, but everything else made up for that! It also had the best wifi in Arugam Bay, maybe even Sri Lanka!

On our way to Kumana National Park and way back we stop at this lovely place for lunch. We had Sri Lankan rice and curry with some fish and chips for kids. Every thing was so delicious and menu for each day was different to other. Most importantly the food was so fresh. No long waiting time and food were served so quickly, we rather spent time to chill and relax. Ambiance of the place equally great as food. Tastefully done vernacular interior. Service was excellent and we were enjoying artwork of the place. With all good food and atmosphere prices were reasonable and we had maximum value for the money.
