Certificate of Excellence
At Hideaway, we are small enough to get to know you personally and big enough to give you room to breathe. We've opened the doors of this magical place we've lovingly called home for 30 years and we invite you to join us here and discover its very special charm. Hideaway is primarily a family owned and run entity and has its own distinct personality and style of service and is not for everyone. The relaxed and homely atmosphere has a certain panache and all our guests receive sensitive and personalised attention. Hideaway comprises 14 rooms in total: four double rooms and one triple room within the main villa, three family bungalows, four double bungalows and two air-conditioned double rooms - all discretely situated within the resort's gardens, furnished with a rustic charm that will nourish your mind and soul. We are now delighted to provide our guests with facilities for wellness and healing. We have added a pool, yoga pavilion and treatment center - the latter two operate daily during the season. Let us feed your body too! The quality of our cuisine is renowned for miles around and we are proud to share it with our guests and visitors. Our inviting restaurant, open for a relaxed breakfast, lunch and dinner, delivers the finest gastronomic encounters, courtesy of Sharon and her skilled team and carefully selected ingredients. Whatever your reason for visiting Arugam Bay, we have the knowledge and a whole host of local contacts to ensure you make the most of your stay.

We stayed at Hideaway during the low season. The chalet, food and service were all of a very high standard. Nice cosy family run hotel with innovative food and attentive service.

We were able to do our own yoga session in the pavilion near the pool which was a bonus.

It‘s the morning after our dinner at the Hideaway and I‘m still happy to have eaten there.
It‘s not cheap (dishes between 1200 and 1600 LKR) but it’s definitely worth it.
Cook changes the menu every day - depends what stuff he brings from the market - and you can choose between

Hi we would like to stay from August 12 -15 for 4 adults do you have accomodation available for these dates? Thank you from Australia
Dear Victoria, Thank you for your request. Could you please send tour request via our website? I am away from the bay at the moment and have no way of checking availability. One of my staff will respond to you at their earliest. Doubtful that we still have any rooms in August, but it's certainly worth a try!
