The space

A team of travelers has invested their time and experience to make this home-stay the best place to stay. We named it after the street dog Emma who welcomed us here and made us feel at home. We have 2 bungalows and 4 rooms, 2 open shadowed chill-out areas with hammocks and pillows and some big lounge pillows which we put on the beach. We have juice bar and every evening we setup small restaurant (3-4 tables) on the beach next to the fire and the ocean. Our beach is clean and good for daytime sunbathing as well as evening hangouts. Within the day and the evening we play chill-out, lounge and ambient music from our beach juice bar.

Guest access

This room is smaller then other rooms. Ideal for 1 person however can accommodate 2 persons with not a big need for the inside space. The room adjoins to our kitchen so in the mornings and evenings you may hear our guys working there. However they does not make really much noise. Price for this room is also smaller then for other rooms. You have your own bathroom. You can chose between mosquito net or electric fumigator. There's a little chill-out to spend the hottest hours under the fan or play a table game, read a book, enjoy your coffee and sounds of the ocean or your favorite music. Feel free to suggest your playlists. We mostly play lounge. Breakfast is not included in the room rate. Breakfast is available in our restaurant in season time. Rate starts @ 500 Rs.

Interaction with guests

We will be happy to share what we love about Arugam Bay and Sri Lanka in general. We're always there for our guests yet we respect the privacy.

The neighbourhood

Arugam is a moon-shaped sandy bay, fishermen village along the coast and we're right in the middle of it. Our beach is great to swim with waves, the main surfer's point is 8-10 min walking-with-the-board and there's a "baby point" nearby.

Getting around

We are surrounded by small local cafes that are open quite early and right beside us on the beach there is a little restaurant that is operated by real fishermen. You can easily get to the shops and ATMs and Pottuvil is just 5 min drive with tuk-tuk.
