Slow Living surf retreat

We believe that good people make good places.


We are a slow living retreat. Located in the most quiet end of Arugam Bay, still walkable to the main area in 5 minutes. 

THE rooms

 Surf & yoga camp in Arugambay is composed of a total of 10 rooms. The rooms are comfortable and all have a private balcony or terrace, making it the perfect place to chill after your surf classes.

Our rooms are decorated in the most simple way to make it feel like your own Sri Lankan home. All the rooms are equipped with mosquito nets, ceiling fans, and hair dryers. A/C is available in certain rooms. You can see the images of the rooms at the booking stage.

Surf & Yoga delivers rustic comfort, warm Sri Lankan hospitality and outstanding cuisine to the discerning traveller.


A famous secret is we have the biggest camp ground for a hotel / guest house / retreat in Arugam Bay!
Come and enjoy the shady palms, hammocks, monkeys, volleyball and coconuts in our garden.

A pool is a must have in the summer heat of Arugam Bay, so our guests can enjoy a fresh dip in the pool. It’s overlooking the paddy field giving your eyes the relaxing views.  

Days at Surf & Yoga combine soulful activity – swimming, surfing, beach walks, cycle rides and yoga – with deep rest and relaxation: reading by the pool and savouring delicious meals.

Co Working

We understand how important it is to work on your projects / studies while you’re spending the time with us. 

Exclusively for our in house guests, we have the perfect set up for co-working. We have the fastest internet in town, SLT Fibre optic internet. 


We offer vegan / vegetarian breakfast and brunch (select from a well thought-out à la carte menu many guests rave about in the reviews as well. If you’re a sweet or a spicy person in the morning, the menu has something for everyone) and cosy family dinners with all our packages, made only with freshest local ingredients.

One thing that our guests rave about our family dinners overnight freshly made by our team on different theme nights.

Sri Lanka meals are served on two nights, and the rest of the themes differ from Asian to Mexican. Read the reviews for guests raving about our food!

other activities

We do our best part to keep the camp vibe calm and relaxing. We are not the party hostel that you’re looking for, but a place to reconnect with  yourself and the nature. 

There are organised safaris that you can join, sunset  outings, and even live music night outings. Our social host / manager  can help you organise all of these for you.

Nature lovers can embark on wildlife safaris to nearby national parks such as Yala and Kumana, where you can spot majestic elephants, elusive leopards, and a myriad of exotic bird species in their natural habitats. Immerse yourself in the lush greenery of the Pottuvil Lagoon.


Cultural enthusiasts can visit the historic temples and ancient ruins scattered across the region, including the iconic Muhudu Maha Viharaya and the Kudumbigala Monastery, each offering a glimpse into Sri Lanka’s rich cultural heritage.
