We are all in this together – Corona offer at Stay Golden Arugam Bay in Sri Lanka

Special circumstances due to Corona need special offers in Sri Lanka

Since March 2020, everything seems to be different. We remember being prepared for a beautiful start to the season in April. Guests were happy, and the pool was about to finish. Then, the curfew started and the boarders were closed. Even though we finally finished the pool in June, not all things got back to normal.

After a summer with long term stays, world travelers being ‘stuck’ in Arugam Bay, and new friendships being made at Stay Golden, winter is different. It’s currently quiet in Arugam Bay. People moved to the South Coast to enjoy the surf. And restrictions are in place that prevent local tourism and traveling between the districts. New Corona cases don’t make anyone’s life easier.

Our vision for Stay Golden in times of Corona

As long as the boarder is closed, we still adapt our offer at Stay Golden. You might not be able to book online. We have blocked the calendar to keep up with new regulations and to be more flexible.

If you are already in the country and interested in staying with us, please just give us a call. Rihan’s number is 0094774909609. Then, we can discuss a potential stay with us.

When the airport is back open again, we will go back to our typical restaurant opening hours, which are 8.00 AM to 3.00 PM and 6.00 PM to 10.00 PM daily.

For the time after the reopening of the airport, the easiest is to book directly via our website. The best price is guaranteed.

Here’s an overview of frequently asked questions.

  • What about surfing?
    From November to March, surfing conditions are complex in Arugam Bay. The sea is rough and waves are unpredictable. You can find more about the best time for surfing in Arugam Bay and other information here.
  • Do you still run yoga classes?
    Currently, we do not run yoga classes. You can contact us for a private class, though. Meanwhile, our yoga shala is available for your own practice any time, too.
  • Is there a community kitchen?
    Sorry, but we don’t have a community kitchen for our guests to use. All cabanas come with a small fridge.
