Welcome to Gecko !
We run a small hotel which is situated half way along Arugam Bay, 10 mins walk to the main surf point. The front building is situated on the main street, whilst the rooms and restaurant are beach side.
We have a small shop selling surf shorts, T shirts, Sri Lankan handicrafts, toiletries, postcards, jewelry & book exchange. We are currently compiling a range of Gecko/Arugam Bay T Shirts and other branded items so you may take home a small piece of this special place, to keep the memories alive!
Our rooms although simple are clean and comfortable. Our popular restaurant offers superb views of the beach and surf point, so you can kick off your shoes and lounge on outsized cushions with a cool drink in our spacious chill out area.
The lush tropical garden creates a special atmosphere, combine this with great food, laid back music and smiling helpful staff; what’s not to enjoy?
We hope to hear from you very soon
Liz, Ramesh & Team

This takes the hassle out of deciding where to eat every day. From only 3,175rs per person per day, you can opt for the “Gecko breakfast & dinner plan”.
We will celebrate with a traditional roast lunch with all the trimmings i.e. chicken/turkey, roast potatoes, bacon rolls, stuffing, red wine gravy plus a full selection of vegetables, cheese sauce and if you still have space, some mince pies and homemade ice cream.
Relaxing in our comfortable chill out area with outsized pillows, listening to cheesy Christmas tunes, sipping on a festive G&T, what could be better?
