Cili Hotel and Restaurant, Arugam Bay

Arugam Bay is the best spot in Sri Lanka, the magnificent pearl of the East, and the Cili Hotel, located right in the town center, rises just opposite the well-known Arugam Bay point. Getting up in the morning you will have delicious tropical fruit for breakfast, and in the blink of an eye you will be walking on the beach and surfing in the sea – no need for cars, bikes, etc.

If you are an expert surfer, on the Main Point you will find perfect wave sessions, or else you can visit the numerous attractive neighbouring spots, such as Whisky Point, Okanda, Crocodile Rock, Peanut Farm, Pottuvil Point, etc.

If you are a beginner, you will quickly improve, bettering your takeoff, and surfing your first wave… an emotion you will never forget!

It is well known that our spots are perfect to learn and improve, thanks to the regularity of the waves and the sandy seabed; the mild water temperature will enable you to spend whole days in the sea, with no need to wear a diving suit.

In the evenings you can relax in our chill-out area, drinking a beer or a fresh fruit juice; you will have the opportunity to attend the bay parties enjoying reggae, house, or techno music.

Sri Lanka is a marvelous country, worth exploring: taking part in the safaris we organize to the nearby natural park of Yala— outstanding for its flora and fauna, you will see elephants, crocodiles, monkeys, parrots, peacocks, eagles, and leopards!

Take a flight! Come and meet us in Arugam Bay!
