The space
HISTORY

Arugam Bay Surf Resort is managed and run by five brothers. The business traces its roots back to the 1970s and was started by their father.

Once a small fishing village, the young man had come to Arugam Bay, where he made a living by selling rotti to the weary fishermen, who would usually stop for a bite either on their way to the sea, or upon returning. As time went on, with this rotti gaining popularity among the tourists who came to visit the area, he put up a few cabanas for his fatigued travelers to rest.

Initially, the Surf Resort was called Arugambay Hilton. The name was coined by an Australian who had visited the place at one time and even helped its owner prepare dishes to suit the tastes and styles of its international visitors. The name was later changed to Arugambay Hillton and then to its current name Arugambay Surf Resort.

Later, the sons joined with their father helping him develop and improve the guesthouse. Since then, the guesthouse has evolved with time, introducing new services and facilities for guests and attracting more and more people.

Guest access
The Pottuvil Lagoon Eco Tour is a new initiative in the management of mangroves and wildlife in Sri Lanka. It brings together local fishermen, government officials and tourists, in an effort to conserve and protect the abundant wildlife found in Pottuvil Lagoon.

Other things to note
Stroll along the beach, or take a dip in the waters when the sun goes down. Or, if you dare, get on your surfboard and pick the right wave.

WILDLIFE

KUMANA NATIONAL PARK

Home to over 200 species of birds, including rare and migratory birds, the Kumana National Park is just over 10 km away from the Arugam Bay Surf Resort. It can be reached via the Panama – Kudumbigala Sanctuary.

Kumana is best visited during May, June and July. The mangroves of the Kumana Villu, a 200-hectare natural swamp lake, which is fed by the Kumbukkan Oya, is filled with birds at this time. Popular birds spotted in the park includes pelicans, painter’s stork, spoonbills, white ibis and herons. Hoards of wildlife also inhabit the park, among them, leopards, elephants, deer, fox, wild boar and sloth bear.

LAHUGALA

Catch a glimpse of the elephants as they freely stroll through the Lahugala elephant corridor. They are best seen before day breaks or at sunset, during the dry season in July and August.
