We stayed for about a week. It was our most pleasant stay in Sri Lanka. P is a nice guy, tells you everything as it is and helps as much as he can. He has also some interesting stories. Would definitely come back.

Galaxy is a fantastic place to stay, the hospitality is second to none; staff are great and the hosts are excellent, both P and Wayne going above and beyond time and time again. You feel like real friends after 24hrs. We arrived in Arugam Bay, hot, sweaty and tired after a long bus journey. At first we booked one night...

We stayed in the stilted cabana and really enjoyed our experience. The outside bathroom and shower, accessed by either the trap door in the room or through the downstairs door, was a treat. The cabana itself was simply furnished but had a lots of charm. The accommodation is on the quieter end of the beach but not far from the...

We didn't actually stay at the Galaxy Lounge, as we had booked rooms in another hotel online before getting to Arugam Bay... but we spent all day at the Galaxy Lounge, every day of our stay, taking all our meals there, because we loved it so much. The whole place is very beautifully made, cozy and comfortable. The food is...

We stayed here for 3 nights after discovering it on a walk along the beach. the manager of the place is great and very helpful, room rates are extremely competitive and the rooms themselves a compliment to the establishment itself. The restaurant offers a great choice of freshly prepared food which wasn't too expensive either. Don't be put off coming...

We stayed five nights in the new cabana directly on the beach. The cabana was beautiful and clean. It has a big bed with a mosquito net, a fan, AC, a big bathroom and there was a hammock in front of the cabana. You can have breakfast, snacks and dinner and everything was really delicious (the rice and curry was...

I've loved every minute of my very long stay at galaxy lounge. My little budget cabana, at the back, was perfect for me. Huge bed and seperate outdoor bathroom, where you can watch the monkeys play, whilst you take a shower! The uncluttered view of the ocean, from the restaurant is just stunning. Food can be pricey but is always...

Spent 4 nights here in July, relaxing and taking in the Arugam Bay sights and sounds. Hospitality is tip top, and the food was some of the best I had in Sri Lanka! The squash curry (or was it pumpkin?) was absolutely fantastic. Also, the American pancakes will feed a crew with buttery deliciousness. Beach is a little steep for...

We simply loved our stay there! Galaxy has relaxing, friendly atmosphere, it symbolizes everything what Arugam Bay means for me. Forever in my memories Arugam Bay will equal Galaxy Lounge. The cabanas are in a garden, just few steps from the ocean. The place is located a bit aside of the Arugam Bay, so the beach is calm a quite...

Loved my stay at Galaxy and really did feel very much at home. I stayed in one of the little bean shacks which are basic, but good value for having your own room and gives your beach stay a lovely rustic feel. It's just far enough out of Arugam Bay that your not right in the thick of all the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A great place to stay. The staff give you anything you might need and they are friendly. The guy that runs the place has a great sense of humour and their is an older lady who does a great job of your laundry. The huts a rustic yet comfortable. They are not dirty - but they could be a bit cleaner. However, this place is miles cleaner than many other places in Arugam Bay. There were no rats and the plumbing was good - which is more than can be said for other places. I will stay there again when I return to Arugam bay. ... more   less
