We stayed in nice place hotel the second time. Every year the host called riffai makes this lovely place place even better. You can do there sunset yoga lessons on the rooftop. Riffai also organizes you everthing you want. Safari trips, surfing lessons with experienced good teachers, airporttransfers with good drivers and comfortable cars/vans for a fair price. It is like a full service accomodation in a 5 star hotel. His housekeeper called Manel is serving delicous food if you want. The fish and prawns are allways fresh from the local fishmarket. We will definitly come again. And for sure you arrive there as a customer and you're leaving as a friend. Thanks for all and all the best for you guys. See you soon. Kind regards Steffi and Basti
We stayed at nice place for 2 weeks and we always felt like we were at home. Our room was comfortable, peaceful and quiet, perfect for relax. The hotel offers every service, from restaurant, tuk tuk, taxi from and to the airport. Rifai, the host, became a good friend to us, he always care about our needs, he is passionate and does his job very professionally. Manel cooked for us some incredible and tasty dishes, rice &curry and fresh fish always with a smile. Nice Place is the best hotel in Arugambay!

Rifai, the owner can manage anithing you need as tuc tuc or boards or transfers and very nice safaris. Food is homemade and excelent flavours!!
We arrived here after a long, hot journey and immediately felt the calm and relaxing atmosphere of this place. Although just a few metres from the beach and the main road the hotel is quiet and peaceful. Each levels balcony is comfortable and the roof terrace is incredible - panoramic views for miles! Our host Mana was amazing; her smile and chats making us feel at home and her English is excellent. We had heard great things about her cooking and they were right! Having previously lived in Sri Lanka I can say that Mana’s rice and curry and roti are one of the best I’ve ever had. We didn’t eat dinner out at all because each nights curry was different and so delicious! The room was spacious and comfortable - cool thanks to the 2 doors, windows and ceiling fan. The manager Rifai is a lovely man who is clearly passionate about making sure his guests have a peaceful stay and his staff are cared for. We hope to return to Arugam Bay soon and we will definitely stay here! …
Very nice guest house and hotel. Great breakfast and juices. The staff is extremely friendly and "Mirin" is a great cook ! Rooms spacious and clean. The place is well located as well, next to good restaurants and surf spots.
