Stardust Beach Hotel Arugam bay lies on the South East coast of Sri Lanka, idyllically situated by the water. A large lagoon is to one side, where wild elephants congregate for an evening 'shower'. On the other, the gardens in front of the restaurant open directly on to the broad sweep of Arugam Bay and the Indian Ocean – many miles of pristine tropical beaches deserted but for the clusters of fishermen's boats dotted here and there, and little thatched villages huddled just above the waterline, where small children jump up and down and scream with excitement at the sight of a visitor.
If you seek tranquility The Stardust Beach Hotel is the best choice in Arugam Bay. Situated right out to the sea in our big private beach garden, we cherish no loud music, no TV, no noisy swimming pool, but the fresh sea breeze and the calming sound of the waves on the beach. The rooms are built of traditional bricks, mortar & tiles.
The cabanas are built of coconut thatch (cadjan) & timber in the old Sri Lankan country style. Apart from a beautiful ambience and cleanliness many small details add to the comfort of each room: Quality mattresses, a mosquito net or repellant (you choose), and of course soap, tissues, towels, a supply of ice cold (or hot) drinking water, and a cup of tea or coffee when you wake up in the morning. All rooms & cabanas have mini bar, fans, mosquito nets & repellants, attached bathrooms, private terraces or balconies. Sea view from all rooms & cabanas. All ground floor rooms & cabanas have direct access to a big private beach garden. No AC in any rooms for environmental reasons. The rooms are well ventilated with fresh sea breeze & fans.
