Retrospect on Stay Golden in summer 2019 –
with a little outlook to 2020

(Published in October 2019)
Three months with the new Stay Golden

It’s been over three months since our opening on the 1st of July 2019. We are lucky and honored to have hosted many different guests in this summer 2019. Some stayed for 1 night, some stayed for 3 weeks. We invited all of them to be part of our Stay Golden Family. Some goodbyes were intense for both sides, connected with the hope to see each other again one day. And the best compliment for us as hosts is the question: We just wanted to check, how is the availability after our booking? Because extending your stay implies everything that matters. <3

Online feedback: Reviews

Another important aspect after our opening was reviews and feedback. We are grateful for the spoken and written feedback we have received. Our new listing started off with an amazing review scoring of 10.0 (with 20 reviews in total until now). On TripAdvisor, we are back under the Top 3 out of 131 listings for B&Bs in Arugam Bay. Rihan is rewarded as a super host on Airbnb again. Wow, wow, wow – thank you so much for this massive and important online support by you. Only with this kind of help, you can make other travelers’ lives easier to find us. At the same time, it is motivation for us to continue striving to provide you a home away from home here in Arugam Bay. We still have a lot of ideas prepared, that are just waiting to be implemented and to become reality! Stay tuned 😃

Calendar open for season 2020

No matter if you have followed us for some time, rescheduled your travel plans after the attacks, or just found out about us online or by a friend’s recommendation: Our online calendar is open for the next season.
