"Highly recommended Hotel and Services"
I liked everything. I was planning to stay 9 days, I stayed 14. I would like to stay longer, but I had my plane tickets...
High quality service, super friendly all staff, you feel like a friend, not just like a tourist. Manager Ansar and Fainas are super nice, always friendly guys. You can get everything you want: to go to surf in the morning, in the evening, you can choose surf point you want - no any problems. You want some additional fruits, another surfing board, change money, rent scooter, surfing instructor and etc. - here you are, with a nice smiling and super friendly. You get 300% more then you pay. Money can't buy good feeling what you get in Star Rest Beach Hotel.
I’ve been travelling really a lot, from USA to Japan and etc., but this place made very good impression that I never had before. Highly recommended place to stay in Arugam Bay, Sri Lanka. I definitely will come back to Star Rest Beach Hotel again, that is for sure.

"14 days surf camp"
My first time in Arugam bay and I have to say "very good experience of surf"! Nice staff, and the members of this staff early became my friends!! All them were very gentle and always ready to drive me at the various surf spots, far or near from the hotel, without any problems!! I hope will come back next year or sometimes to surf that waves another time and to spend more time with my new friends Fainas, Ansar, Isak, Rabbanà. Enjoy it!! 😉

"Lovely place with very friendly staff"
The hotel is located close to the beach. Every day I got some small breakfast like fruit and coffee before the morning surf and after the surf I got a proper breakfast. I always got help with booking transport and anything else I might need. I booked 5 nights but in the end I ended up staying for two week. I was very pleased with my stay! I was traveling alone and they made sure that I had a really good time in Arugam Bay.
