#01 Stardust is the very first Hotel you come to after crossing the Bridge and as you enter Arugambay. Hence we indexed Stardust No. #01.
But in any case “Stardust” has always been the “No. 01” address at the Bay, offering the highest class of hospitality available in the entire area.
When the late Per together with Merete settled in Arugam Bay this Danish couple established without any doubt very high, fresh standards of hospitality at Arugam Bay.
For many years the well run Stardust was just like an oasis in this very remote enclave.
With only a few highly original, but low budget establishments such as #05 Beach Hut, #45 Sooriya’s and #58 Rupas around in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s #01 Stardust’s high class, international cuisine together with a dozen or so perfect, ultra clean rooms firmly established Arugam Bay on to a global map.
Suddenly there was a place in town not just for surfers, but for demanding world travelers!
A man with a vision, a true pioneer, Per Goodman continued to develop his great resort until the end; of 2004. Stardust gained and maintained the reputation of being the finest Restaurant in the East, offering good local and always perfect International dishes in a beautiful location and setting near the large lagoon.
The Hotel’s own web site, designed by the late Mr. Philip has for many years been described as a ‘good source of information’ about Arugam Bay and the surrounding area.
Again, even the site was ahead of its time and rightfully still holds the No. 01 position on Google.
