If you seek tranquility, The Stardust Beach Hotel is the best choice in Arugam Bay. The Stardust Beach Hotel is situated right at the sea in our big private beach garden. We cherish the fresh sea breeze and the calming sound of the waves on the beach. Natural simplicity and environmental awareness are the basic ideas behind the hotel’s design.Our buildings are constructed of traditional bricks, mortar and tiles by local craftsmen. The cabanas are built of coconut thatch (cadjan) and timber in the old Sri Lankan style. Apart from a beautiful ambience and cleanliness, many small details add to the comfort of each room: Quality mattresses, mini bar, fans, mosquito net and repellant 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.

For environmental reasons we only offer air condition (a/c) in our garden floor rooms. The rooms and cabanas at The Stardust Beach Hotel are designed and built to give full enjoyment of the ocean breeze. It is safe at all time to keep the window shutters open or ajar, when you are at home.

All rooms, apartments, bungalows and cabanas have attached bathrooms, private terraces or balconies. All ground floor rooms and cabanas have direct access to the big private beach garden, dotted with umbrellas, beach beds and cozy corners. To safeguard this stunning nature, we built sparingly with lots of free space for greenery and sea view.

You can rent our canoe or kayak for a fascinating trip in the lagoon. You can rent a bike nearby for a lovely tour in the beautiful landscape – and we can arrange good quality surf lessons and jeep safaris for you.
