Arugambay Roccos
Arugam Bay,Arugam Bay - View on map
"Roccos has by far the best pool beach set up in Arugam Bay. The pictures are accurate. The breakfast was the best we had in Sri Lanka. Be sure to order the Sri Lankan breakfast the day before. Our favorite staff members were Haleem and Kovy! They were so kind and knowledgeable about the area's history. "

Arugambay PodBay
Arugam Bay,Arugam Bay - View on map
"Purely for sleeping so is a great option if you plan being out all day. Air conditioning works so well in the small space which is great when you initially return from the heat, definitely need blankets for sleeping though. They had cabins at the front/beach side of the property that looked like a better and more comfortable option but we didn't view them so not sure. Staff were friendly just be patient, the service in Arugam Bay is very relaxed, you need to adjust your expectations. "

Garden Beach Hotel
Arugam Bay,Arugam Bay - View on map
"My trip to Arugam Bay was pretty last minute. I decided to come here on a whim, because I was chasing after a romantic interest. The girl I was hoping to see never came, but my time in Arugam Bay was fantastic nonetheless. The owner at Garden Beach Hotel was super friendly and very accommodating. The property itself was nicely maintained and in a perfect location. Within minutes you could go from the hotel to the main street for food and drinks, or take just a few short steps to the beach. Definitely recommend a visit if you will be in A-Bay."

Royal Beach
Arugam Bay,Arugam Bay - View on map
"Firstly I would like to thank Muzzamil and his team for their continued efforts particularly as they were fasting during Ramadan. I stayed during the off-season and recently after the attacks. It’s such a shame as this had clearly disrupted their business but it seems they’re bouncing back. The team were great! Each morning as soon as I opened the curtains, they were on hand for breakfast. Muzzamil had excellent knowledge of the local area, activities and spots to eat. He arranged my airport transfer and continuously went the extra mile. One night they provided a complimentary dinner and I have to say their Prawn Curry was the best I had during my stay. Also their grilled prawns are incredible! My only constructive feedback is better WiFi but this is always the case in SL. "

Kottukal Beach House by Jetwing
Arugam Bay,Arugam Bay - View on map
"Remote but only 10 min to arugam bay, so no problem, remote for us was what we like. The house and grounds are amazing as are the staff accommodation, we had 1 of the villas was great spacious clean and comfortable, food was clean and delicious and always more than we could eat, we had some friends come over for the evening and the staff (Manog) setup a caddle lit dinner for us that was pretty special. we could not recommend the beach house highly enough our biggest problem was we eventually had to leave ☹️. If I had to find a fault it would be the wifi, was a bit erratic but still worked ok, the network they use is dialog and I had a dialog sim in my phone and it was in and out also, so if you require wifi maybe try one of the other networks as a backup as sim data pack was cheap.

More about Arugam Bay

Arugam Bay is a surfer’s paradise, located on the eastern part of Sri Lanka just over 300 kilometers from the city of Colombo. The little bay is best accessed either by car or bus from Colombo, although the bus journey will not be very easy for inexperienced travelers.

Most people who make their way to Arugam Bay do so because of the incredible breaks and waves that are known to frequent this bay, and Arugam Bay Wave Surfing is a very popular activity among visitors to this area.

Beaches like Pasarichenai Beach, and local attractions like Elephant Rock and Lahugala-Kiulana National Park make it easy for everyone to enjoy this beautiful paradise.
