Welcome to Galaxy Lounge
The Galaxy lounge is situated at the quiet end of Arugam bay beach, near enough to walk to the full moon parties and world class waves at the point, but far enough away to get a good nights sleep! The Galaxy Lounge offers a secluded beach environment and caters to families, couples, groups and individuals. We believe in fair trade and employ our staff from the local area. The Galaxy Lounge was built by local craftsmen and all the building materials were bought locally.
Galaxy Lounge offers a perfect blend of luxury and nature.Our reasonable prices, comfortable surroundings, and warm service will impress the mind, body and soul. Spend your time in Arugam Bay staying in our gorgeous beach front cabanas. Relax and unwind at Galaxy Lounge……
