We stayed at Hideaway Resort for two weeks with our two children aged six and nine. We then travelled half way across Sri Lanka to go back for my birthday. It’s that good! We liked everything about hideaway. Staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful. So are the owners and the guys who work at the bar. Friendly and helpful is a theme here. The place itself is great. Breakfast is fantastic. Everything is delicious. There is a really nice pool out the back. The bar and evening is family friendly and serves great pizza. I use a wheelchair and I’d like to say a big thank you to all the staff who helped me so often during my stay. It is no way wheelchair friendly but that didn’t matter with so many people offering their help. Arugam Bay is a great place to spend some time and we’d highly recommend Hideaway resort.

Dear Ben and Bec, It was our pleasure to have you stay at Hideaway! We are so glad you were well looked after by the staff. Unfortunately not many places in Sri Lanka are wheelchair friendly yet - but we are more than happy to do anything to support our guests. And it was so lovely to have you back again for your birthday! We are glad you enjoyed all that Hideaway has to offer! And thank you for taking the time to put your thoughts on TripAdvisor. Bay Blessings, Sharon and Team Hideaway

We absolutely loved our time at the Hideaway! The grounds are incredible with tons of luscious plants that are beautifully maintained. Our cabana was amazing. Spacious, sparkling clean with fun tropical touches like a beautiful handmade quilt on the bed, fresh tropical flowers in the bathroom and main cabana and touches of bright colors throughout. We spent 3 nights at the Hideaway at the end of our trip and truly felt like we were fully able to unwind and relax there. We ate breakfast every day at their amazing café with delicious coffee, fresh juices and smoothies and bomb food (both local and Western options). Their bar has an epic happy hour from 6-8 with yummy BOGO drinks and the restaurant was some of the best food we had during our entire trip. We also enjoyed relaxing by the pool on the back of the property and took a yoga class one morning which was quite relaxing. Their service was also impeccable with very helpful staff. We became close with a few of the employees there during our short stay - we loved Mathy and Hetti! Would 100% recommend and stay again!

This our second trip to Hideaway. We loved it so much we came back two years later for a fortnight.
We have stayed in many lovely places in Sri Lanka - loved the locations, people and food - but the Hideaway is on another level again.
Sharon has created a beautiful space. It is tastefully decorated but simple. There are places to relax and to socialize. The yoga space and pool are lovely and the cafe and bar have a great vibe. The food is exceptional.
But what makes the place are the people. We just loved interacting with them on a daily basis - such warmth and helpfulness. A special thankyou to Sharon, Asanka, Mathy, Sampat, Dinusha, Samuel and the other lovely boys that cleaned our rooms. Also to Jaya who made our tuk tuk rides lots of fun.
It was very sad to leave - it felt like we were saying goodbye to friends.

The Hideaway is about the total experience. Firstly Sharon and her staff are so friendly and helpful, then there is the absolutely fantastic food, the coffee shop (Hideaway Blue), the bar and two shops with select stock.
My reasons is it the best in Bay (and my favourite destination) 1) the staff, 2)the food, 3) unlimited drinking water is provided (small daily charge) in glass bottles, 4) great choice of music in the restaurant and at the bar (bar music turned off by 11pm every night to ensure a restful night), 5) tuk tuk, jeep or taxi can be arranged at your request, 6) yoga classes with great instructors accommodating various levels, 7) the pool is an added bonus, 8) choice of aircon or fan rooms.

Thank you, thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed all we have to offer, and we thank you for taking the time to give us a shout out! We are glad you enjoyed our food! Our menu changes regularly and we are always seeking inspiration for new dishes. In regards to the water - we are doing our best to minimise the use of plastics, and have a water filtration system in place for all our guests. And when travel allows, we'd love to see you again sometime! The team love it when guests return.
