We stayed at the "New TriStar Beach Hotel" which is located opposite the older "TriStar Beach Hotel." The beautiful beach of Arugam Bay was right in front of me when I opened the windows and stepped out onto the verandah. It was a fantastic location, but sadly the safe ocean area was about 300 metres away. A very refreshing welcome...

After checking several places we decided to stay here for one night as we had a reservation later. We stayed at the front place, nice view in an old room. Breakfast is really good and people very welcoming. Finally we decided to stay 4 nights longer and a lot of people we met during breakfast did so. After two nights...

Rooms were fairly comfortable. But the bathrooms were too small. We could enjoy a tasty breakfast with a lot of items. Very tranquil and eye catching area. Staff really friendly and very helpful. Feel like going again to enjoy that breakfast.

Beautiful view and located on beach front. Also central to restaurants and shops. Beach directly in front of hotel could be cleaned up by staff as there was lots of rubbish in the sand. Room facilities outdated and lots of bugs in the bedding. Great balcony looking out towards the sea. Also liked the hammocks. Helpful staff.

Visited here with around seven families. All relatives and friends on a trip to Arugambay and this is the best place around as I could see to stay in a decent manner. Rooms are normal and liveable. Staff is very helpful and kind. Food is nothing special but safe and clean. Rooms could do better. Food could do better with...

The staff at the hotel were very welcoming and helpful. The property is made up of two buildings on either side of the road. The beach side has some nice hammocks to watch the world go by on the beach. The pool was on the far side of the road and was warm and not exceptionally clean. The rooms were...

We were brought to Tri Star Beach by our driver who knew the owner, and it was a good recommendation with a good value, clean room with AC. The location is great with the beach literally outside your door, and close to lots of nice bars and places to eat such as Hideaway and Siam View. Breakfast was juice, toast...
