Arugam Bay Sam's Hut

Our six quiet, clean, and well-maintained cabanas surround a quiet, pleasant garden with shady seating areas. Located at the quieter end of Arugam Bay, each room offers a double bed, en-suite bathroom (warm water is available on cooler evenings) and Wi-Fi. The site is safe, secure and well-lit, and staff are always available.

A wide variety of options are offered for breakfast (included in the room price), including tea, coffee, fresh juices, toast, omelettes, pancakes, etc. All is freshly prepared. Food can also be ordered throughout the day, with fresh fish barbeques, cakes, and brownies also available upon request.

The sandy, 2km-long beach of Arugam Bay is a mere 15 second walk from Sam's Hut. This section of the beach is wide, peaceful, relaxing, and good for swimming. A ten minute stroll will take you to the main bar and restaurant area, where there are plenty of laid back beach bars and dining options.

We are here to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We offer laundry service, and will be pleased to arrange tuk-tuk / scooter / bike hire, assist with local transport, and provide any local knowledge that you need. We look forward to welcoming you to Arugam Bay at our friendly, family-run guesthouse.
