Hideaway is now opening its doors to the discerning international traveler seeking a nurturing yet adventurous, personalized holiday.
Secluded in a shady grove on the landward side of Arugambay, Hideaway’s main guesthouse and white-washed, thatch-roofed cabins are tucked into an unspoiled area of Sri Lanka’s spectacular east coast.
Once a well-kept secret among globetrotting surfers, there are more than a dozen world-class surf sites within a twenty-mile radius of this unusual retreat. Across the road, less than 100 meters from Hideaway’s tranquil gardens, is a sweeping white-sand swimming and surfing beach.
Hideaway is uniquely situated near the Eden-like Lahugala Elephant Sanctuary, and the Kumana Bird Sanctuary, site of one the most spectacular avian migrations in the southern hemisphere. Exquisitely preserved Buddhist and Hindu sacred archaeological sites are scattered within a short hike or drive of the Hideaway grounds. Our staff will be happy to arrange excursions to these and other extraordinary destinations in the region. Airport transfers, car rentals, drivers, local tour guides and many other services are also available for the asking.
Lush tropical gardens create an ambiance of privacy and serenity, offering a welcome refuge for the world-weary traveler in need of a restorative getaway. From the whimsical stone Ganesh - a survivor of the 2004 tsunami - to the simply but elegantly appointed rooms and cabins, Hideaway combines rustic charm with a modern sensitivity to the natural environment. With sustainability at the forefront of our mission, our desire is for you to have an unforgettable experience and to return time and time again.
Lying directly in line with Colombo which is on the West Coast, “Hideaway” is on the East coast bordering the Kumana National Reserve. With recent road development completed, the roads leading to Arugambay are vastly improved and the journey would now take around 8 hours with regular refreshment stops along the way.
Accommodations at Hideaway comprise 5 double rooms in the original family home, with 4 double cabins, 2 with air conditioning, and 3 triple cabins.
All rooms have full en suite bathrooms.
Non A/C Dbl Room (Main Building)
The rooms consist of a double bed, with ceiling fan, mosquito netting and en-suite bathroom. These quaint and cozy rooms with a tastefully furnished sitting area on the balcony outside offer the guest a view of the Garden screened by the multi colored bougainvilleas that grow up the front façade of the main building, giving them a sense of privacy and seclusion.
Non A/C Dbl Cabin
The rustic double Cabins consist of double bed, ceiling fan, mosquito netting, en-suite bathroom, mini verandah and hammock strung up between the trees for lounging in the shade. Located in the lush garden underneath the numerous shade trees, the cabins offer guests that hidden-away feeling that makes Hideaway unique in Arugam Bay.
Non A/C Trpl Cabin
These Triple cabins consist of a double bed, a single bed, ceiling fans, mosquito netting and the largest en-suite bathrooms in Arugam Bay, with the novel open-to-the-sky "rock-shower". The verandah has a foliage screen which gives guests a view that is screened from the outside offering privacy and seclusion on those hot afternoons.
Non A/C Quad Family Room
Being the largest cabin available, the family quad room consists of two double beds, ceiling fans, mosquito netting, a large en-suite bathroom, lounge chairs and a hammock under the shade trees in the garden. This cabin is ideally suited for family vacationers as it provides sufficient space both inside the room as well as plenty of space for the kids to romp around in the large garden.
A/C Dbl Cabin
The two Air Conditioned cabins consist of double beds, air conditioning unit, additional wall-mounted fan, en-suite bathrooms, verandah / balcony with lounge chairs. The cabin on the upper floor offers an unobstructed view of the sea with foliage beautifully grown up the front of the building to hide the sitting areas from outside views.
The rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished, while the walls are painted in soft white emphasizing the white linen on the king sized beds.
The restaurant at Hideaway offers a unique, thoughtfully developed fusion of Pacific Rim cuisines, with Mediterranean influences, and traditional Sri Lankan preparations at its heart. We strive to use organic ingredients and source locally grown produce whenever possible. Our fresh fish and seafood is delivered to us daily and is prepared under the superb supervision of our chef, Ivor De Silva. A daily menu is on display in the restaurant and special orders can be arranged, with prior notice.
