Sandy Beach Hotel
Average: 3 1 rating
Starting from 30 $



Sandy Beach Hotel was newly built in 2012 to provide high quality, beach side accommodation at an affordable price.


Located within a short walk (15 minutes) from the world famous Arugambay Surf Point, Sandy Beach nestles comfortably in the middle of the Bay. Each of our beach front double bedrooms provide en-suite shower rooms, and are cool and breezy all year round. For 2014, we have added air-conditioning to our two upper floor doubles for added comfort.


Sandy Beach is owned and operated in parnership by your hosts Badurkhan and his wife Habza, who reside in nearby Pottuvil. Badurkhan is a former English language secondary school teacher who, following the tsunami disaster of 2004, became actively involved in the reconstruction efforts in the area, including a period as Vice-Chairman of Pottuvil Municipal Council. With those efforts virtually complete, Badurkhan realised his long-term ambition to own and operate a high quality hotel establishment, steering away from the cabana style accommodation which can be found in abundance in the area. Badurkhan's vision was to integrate modern construction standards with locally sourced materials and utilise the skills of local craftsmen to provide quality accommodation at an affordable price. This vision became a reality on the 20th June 2012, with the opening of Sandy Beach Hotel.


For the 2013 season, we added a restaurant facility within the gounds, together with additionl bedroom facilities toan equivalent standard to the main guest houe. We offer "room only" style of accommodation in our comfortably appointed bedrooms overlooking the Indian Ocean. All rooms have tea / coffee making facilities and refrigerators, with clean linen provided daily

The Sandy Beach Hotel doesn't provide a surf school, but you can reach the 2 main surf spots (Baby Point and Main Point) by 10 min walk and here you can find some surf schools. Anyway the Sandy Beach can arrange on daily basis the rent of tuk tuks (a particular vehicle used in the area) to carry you to the main surf spots in the area, like Pottuvil Point, Whiskey Point Crocodile, Elephant Rock, Okanda and Peanut Farm. All the drivers that collaborate with the Sandy Beach are reliable and honest.

How to get there

The only available intercontinental airport in Sri Lanka is in Colombo. The Sandy Beach Hotel can send you a van to pick you up at the airport. The van can take 4/5 people + luggages and surf boards. It costs arond 20,000 rupies (115 €) and it takes 7/8 hours to reach Arugam Bay (the roads are very bad). We advise you against hiring a car as the roads are very bad and dangerous and you need a special permission to drive in Sri Lanka.
