“Great guesthouse, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

I stayed at River Corner last month during my time in Arugam Bay. Haroon is a great owner and manager and makes sure that you enjoy your time here. Rooms are very clean, simple, and the prices are good. It is a short walk to the beach and to the main areas of the town, but far enough from the main road for quiet sleep and solitude if desired. They are very accommodating and willing to arrange rental of scooters, bikes, and vehicles, and to put you in touch with tour operators. The breakfast and beverages are fresh and cheap. Overall, highly recommend!

Room Tip: Try the new cabana, just built last month.
