Lahiru Place, Arugam Bay

Lahiru Place guest house is like a small village in Arugam Bay. It is in the quiet part of town, but just a few steps from all of the important surf points. Lahiru is not just a guesthouse, it is a place where you will find your family and home when you are in Arugam Bay. 

Lahiru has a big garden, spacious rooms, and wooden cabanas. There are hammocks and open seating areas where you can chill out. We offer a wide range of breakfasts, snacks, and many more items. It is definitely a spot which should not be missed when you are traveling to Arugam Bay.

All rooms have a fan and an en suite bathroom. We also offer cheaper wooden cabanas with shared bathroom especially for budget travelers and surfers.


For food you don’t need to go more than a few steps to the nice and small Lahiru restaurant. Our chef Ravi is serving burgers, soups, fresh juice... local and western style food and BBQ every Tuesday. One of Ravi's specialties is his iced coffee. In the morning you wake up with the sounds of the jungle and if you are lucky, you may share your breakfast with monkeys.
