Had walk around these beautiful gardens today and met the owner who was very accomadating. We are already booked in somewhere else but this but this place had a great vibe and looks promising. Not at the beach but only a stones throw away

A few locals brought us here for lunch, and the fish curry was amazing! We also tasted some chicken that tasted amazing as well. Ice cream with passion fruit for dessert tasted great! Absolutely recommended!

Great atmosphere, lighting and furniture in the cool outdoor garden. Brilliant for cocktails and a 2-4-1 happy hour. Sri Lankan curry was good too! Definitely recommended for evening drinks, central in Arugam Bay

This restaurant is absolutely worth a visit. Bit expenceive, however you get quality food and great service in an outstanding outdoor setting. The Snapper was gorgeous and perfect prepared, with nice and fresh vegetables. In addition the fried noodles was very good. You should eat here. :-)

“There is a spare block next door where stray dogs congretate and the noise they make through the night is nothing you would have heard before. It sounds alien!!”

“he accommodation at Surf N' Sun is good, but if you are not interested in roughing it just a little, I would recommend staying in one of the air conditioned bungalows. All in all Surf N' Sun was a great a place to stay in Arugam Bay and we would definitely come back.”
