The first person i talked to when i got to Sri Lanka was this french guy and he told me about the place. He was so enthousiastic about it that i couldn't wait to get here. And it didn't dissapoint me one bit.
I got a beachhut with an overview on the sea. It is actually one real big matrass with a lot a lot of pillows and a colourfull musquitonet in it. You can also close it, if it would rain, which it didn't for me. It even has light, a fan and powerpoints. It is just amazing to wake up to the sound of the ocean with a small breeze. They really captured a small piece of paradise.
The first night i arrived here we had a barbeque with everybody. We would be eating the catch of the day, which was this huge tuna. We got a fresh grilled tuna and it was totally amazing. The food here will not dissapoint you at all. For me the must-tries on the menu are definitely: Floating boat and Shakshuka, delicious.
Then i haven't even talked about the hospitality. The owner, Muba, is literally one of the sweetest people i ever met. He truthfully will want to arrange anything for you. And i am not lying if i say ANYTHING. So you can imagine that the atmosphere in this place is close to perfect.
If you are planning to go to go Arugam Bay, which I strongly suggest you do, don't miss Folly's. 'Cause i think Folly's completes the beauty of the place where it is. And if you do, don't forget to give the owner a big hug from me.
