we are a french couple. We travelled 3 weeks around Sri Lanka before arriving in Arugam Bay so we were looking for a quiet place to have a huge rest and what a surprise to find this lovely place with beautiful garden giving access to the beach. Our room (and bathroom) was so clean and peaceful with AC. Staff was...

In the end of the main street, you'll find 3 brothers chillin' around in their garden and waiting for you to order some good local food from their kitchen. The food is good, the location is absolutely perfect and the garden will get you lazy and sleepy. Try the hammock and you'll see my point. The rooms could have been...

Location & staff were good. But the food wasnt great. Room was very basic & plain. Not as clean as would of expected and for 4000/night it was overpriced. Maybe the ac rooms are better but wouldnt stay in a fan only room again. Better places elsewhere

After spending one night in a horrible resort we decided to switch to paradise sand. The resort is beautiful at the ocean with lots of palmtrees and flowers. There are a/c rooms(8000rp/d) and non a/c(5000rp/d) rooms. The prices are a bit high but the rooms were clean and big enough. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you need...

We stayed 11 nights in Arugam Bay and stayed the whole time in Paradise Sand. Location is perfect : right on the beach, close to main point but just far enough to be in the quiet area of the bay. Rooms are clean. AC quiet. Food is great with wide variety of dishes with the right prices. The crew is...

I think the below must have been written about another spot as there is no way it could be about this place! We stayed there for four nights and the place was immaculate! This place is the perfect place to stay in A-bay. The rooms are affordable and very clean. The place is run very well, with very friendly owners...
