We were reccomended this place by other travelers and we are so glad we found it!!!!!We stayed in a hut almost on the beach, 15 meters from the ocean. It was a really amazing experience waking up with the ocan waves. Best part is the chill and cool vibe of this place. Great communal area where you meet other travelers and hammocks to chill out. They oranize communal dinners and their breakfast is yummy(shakshuka). Walkable to all restaurants/bars. Highly reccomend!!

Spend four days in Arugam bay, sleeping in one of the follies with my girlfriend. Was really nice to stay directly on the beach and this place is also really great to meet other travellers. Muba is a very helpful and friendly host and the food is also good (try the shakshuka!)

3 of us stayed in a Cabana right on the beach which was awesome. We stayed for 2 weeks, love the chilled out vibe of the Folly. Muba was a perfect host, always around to ask any questions and help us with anything we need. Really close to main street where you can find surf rental shops and restaurants but it is far enough away that its nice and quite and all you can hear is the sound of the waves.

Staying at the folly was one of the most enjoyable holiday experiences i have ever had. Just imagine your own beach paradise where you can hear the waves crashing around you. But hands down the experience was driven by the manager muba. He goes above and beyond to make sure you are having an amazing time. Will defiently be back !
