Eco-Friendly Notes

Apart from running Restaurant Stardust, and Stardust Beach Hotel,  our mission is to create employment for people in the area, which has an unemployment rate of 70%. We train our employees—a staff of 25 people—to work in respect of the local environment and ecosystem, to high awareness of hygiene, and eco-friendly removal of waste.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

All staff is local from the area around Arugam Bay—with the professionalism and high standard of Restaurant Stardust and the adjoining Stardust Beach Hotel, both managed since 1984 by the Danish Merete Scheller.

Accessibility Notes

Going south from Pottuvil to Arugam Bay you cross the bridge over The Lagoon - take the first road on your left and just before the beach you reach Restaurant Stardust and Stardust Beach Hotel - with free parking.
