Bay Vista Hotel

Arugam Bay | Standard

Steeped in the chilled-out, surfing vibe of Arugam Bay’s gently curving coastline, the Bay Vista Hotel is a serene sanctuary for body and mind. With a prime beachside position, ideal for getting out among the waves, daily yoga classes, and a healthy selection of fresh and plant-based food, this is somewhere to recharge your batteries before testing your surfing skills on the region’s famous breaks.

Simple elegance in the guestrooms creates a calm and restful ambiance. The airy doubles can comfortably accommodate couples, and the larger triples are perfect for families. Dark furniture with clean lines contrasts against white walls and linens which enhance the natural light, while tones of aqua, turquoise and sunset orange reflect the stunning views across the bay. The tiled floors keep the space cool, extending into contemporary, wet-room style en-suites and out onto private balconies where you can watch the sun rise and fall over the clear horizon.

During high season, surfing takes centre stage, but there are always opportunities to explore Kumana National Park, the nearby temples, or embark on lagoon safari through the mangroves. The hotel’s yoga programme allows beginners and experienced practitioners alike to join regular class on the terrace, followed by a selection of refreshments from the café which have been designed with healthy lifestyles in mind. Alternatively, find a cosy spot in one of the thatched beach cabanas, grab yourself a cocktail and just watch the world go by, before enjoying dinner on the sand as the sun goes down.
