Stay Golden is a small, family-run boutique hotel with pool at the beach of Arugam Bay. Your double room is cosy, simple and clean. It’s designed and furnished with love to make you feel comfortable during your stay. The room has a double bed with high quality mosquito net, shelves, a ceiling fan and air-conditioning. Your private bathroom comes with hot water. Beautiful nature surrounds us. The room is located on the ground floor in a house with two double rooms. It has a terrace and a hammock.

The space
Our hotel is located at an empty and wide beach, only some walking minutes away from Arugam Bay center. We offer 5 cabanas and 2 double rooms.

In our garden, we run a modern restaurant with café. It’s the perfect place for you to relax, and enjoy good food. We serve healthy, fresh and delicious local food from morning to evening. There is a variety of options for vegetarians and vegans, as well.

All day long, the pool with children area invites you to cool off. Sun beds and shade are provided free of charge for you. You have access to free and fast Wifi all over the property. We regularly offer yoga classes at our rooftop yoga shala overlooking the ocean. Furthermore, you can book surfing lessons or rent a surf board with us. A special highlight are the safaris to the Kumana National park and to the Pottuvil lagoon. We are happy to organise them for you.

We strive for sustainable eco-tourism. The hot water is produced by solar panels; we consciously reduce our plastic consumption, separate our bio waste and offer bicycles free of charge. Additionally, mineral water is available for you to refill.

Where you’ll be

Arugam Bay, Eastern Province, Sri Lanka

Arugam Bay is famous for its surf (main season is from April to October). You walk ten minutes at the beach until you reach the main Surf spot (Main Point). Turning South, standing at Stay Golden’s beach, you can spot Crocodile’s Rock and Elephant Rock at the horizon. The beach seems endless on that side of the bay. It’s beautiful.
The hotel is located in the still more undiscovered area of Arugam Bay, perfect for everyone seeking peace. Nature mixed with simple, local residential houses surround us. Though, it’s just a ten minutes walk to the city center of Arugam Bay or a couple of minutes bike ride (bikes are free of charge for guests). There, you find many shops and restaurants.
We also rent scooters.

During your stay

We are Rihan and Angie, your hosts. We are normally around at the hotel all day long. When you have any questions about what to do around, your travel plans, or just want to chat, we are here for you. Rihan was born in Pottuvil as the son of a local fisherman. In 2014, he started with Stay Golden, hosting people in simple beach cabanas. In 2017, Angie joined. She is Rihan’s wife, originally from Germany and fell in love with him and the country. In 2019, we moved Stay Golden to our own land off the beaten track from busy Arugam Bay town.
