Sandy Beach Hotel was newly built in 2012 to provide high quality, beach side accommodation at an affordable price. Located within a short walk (15 minutes) from the world famous Arugambay Surf Point, Sandy Beach nestles comfortably in the middle of the Bay. Each of our beach front air double bedrooms provide en-suite shower rooms, and are cool and breezy all year round. For 2014, we have added air-conditioning to all our doubles for added comfort
For the 2013 season, we added a restaurant facility within the grounds, together with additional bedroom facilities to an equivalent standard to the main guest house. We offer "room only" style of accommodation in our comfortably appointed bedrooms overlooking the Indian Ocean. All rooms have tea / coffee making facilities and refrigerators, with clean linen provided daily For further information about room availability, Badurkhan can be contacted direct on 00 94 (0)773 242 764
Web enquiries and reservations are handled by Badurkhan's Welsh/Australian partners, Rheinallt & Teresa.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes
Sandy Beach is owned and operated in parnership by your hosts Badurkhan and his wife Habza, who reside in nearby Pottuvil. Badurkhan is a former English language secondary school teacher who, following the tsunami disaster of 2004, became actively involved in the reconstruction efforts in the area, including a period as Vice-Chairman of Pottuvil Municipal Council. With those efforts virtually complete, Badurkhan realised his long-term ambition to own and operate a high quality hotel establishment, steering away from the cabana style accommodation which can be found in abundance in the area. Badurkhan's vision was to integrate modern construction standards with locally sourced materials and utilise the skills of local craftsmen to provide quality accommodation at an affordable price. This vision became a reality on the 20th June 2012, with the opening of Sandy Beach Hotel.
