It's difficult to review a place that's perfect. This is the best place to stay in Arugam Bay - but it's no big secret so it's busy. Incredible architecture with treehouses and quirky cabanas, prices to suit every budget and , wonderful staff and an atmosphere that immediately unites people. I first visited this place in March 2015 and I... More

An amazing place we unexpectedly stumbled upon during our travel... Every day, inside a peaceful garden, backpackers, locals, surfers would talk, chill or have dinner together. The team was really friendly and Kuna, always smiling, remained one of the nicest person we met during our travel, providing us numerous helpful advices. The restaurant also provides tasty and affordable food every... More

Beach hut is very calm and affordable place where you can chill out. We only ate there so we can review only the services of the restaurant. Stuff is slow but it is worthy to wait for the meal. Every day they offer special dinners which are really tasty. This is the way how you can try many different flavoures.... More

Very friendly staff, ok clean rooms, atmosphere is amazing, food is good and the prices are backpacker friendly. Only minus was the bugs that visit us the first Night and the fact that our room was not cleaned properly at check In. But the place still deserves 5 Stars. I Would differently come back again. !

This place is so incredible! My friends and I stayed for 4 nights as a walk in. They accommodated us however they could. The location couldn't be beat and it's so darn cute. I'd say the dinners here are he best ever though! Pay the price, sit down, meet friends, you won't regret it. They'll help you with anything.

Very close to the beach (you can hear the sound of breaking waves breaking out of the bedroom). We stayed in two different huts, last one was just 800 (discount!), no windows and very small but for two beds for this price we don't complain. One day my wife saw a beautiful chameleon here, good for a nice picture! There's... More

A fantastic little find. Very cheap food from a clean restaurant. The staff are initially a bit stand offish but if you give them the chance and chat to them they are hugely friendly and helpful. Great relaxed vibe with beautiful people dropping in and out all the time. The toilets are an adventure but that is to be expected... More

The beach hut is great place to stay if you are looking to have a fun time in Arugam Bay. If you can try get a room or tree house down the front near the water. They have a great view of the ocean and have a nice breeze at night. The dinner is delicious! We had our favourite curry... More

I was greeted by Kuna super helpful walked me to my beach front Cabana which had everything I wanted, clean bed, fan and mosquito net with basic communal shower and toilet.

Great location on the beach! The huts and restaurant look so funky. So many rooms but they're really spaced out so does not feel crowded at all. Price is excellent. Rooms are simple, for the price don't expect anything too fancy. But why do you need anything fancy when you've got the ocean on your doorstep! Great place to meet... More
