Arugam Bay in Jan

Will be in AB in January.

1) Has anyone stayed at Palm Grove Holiday Inn? What are the rooms like? Any room tips? I cant find any photos on their website.

2) Would there be any activities (surf competitions/.parties etc) during 12th, 13th, 14th Jan?

Surf conditions are bad therefore it's off season. Also, the area usually experience floods in January, although that might not be the case this year.

Yes a bit unpredictable. Advantage of offseason is that there's a spot in the bay where normally surf is great but this time the sea is safe for swimming...

All the best,

Thanks! I was thinking of possible nightlife in the area as well.

Hope no floods! <fingers crossed>

Well there is a huge nightlife, on par with Unuwatuna, but it's questionable how much of it will be open during offseason. And even then, partying in a 25% filled bar often is a nonstarter ;-)

All the best,
