#24 Way of the Bay Hotel
This is a new hotel development in Arugam Bay.
Way of the Bay did not feature in last year’s walk or listing.
It now appears in place of “Nina Hotel”, for which we no longer found a sign board, in mid 2010.
Mr. Sahabdeen is a native of Arugam Bay.
His father – we think his name was Nagorthambi? – once had an old tractor ‘David Brown’ plying up and down the old dirt road of AbaY.
In the 1980’s and maybe early 90’s Sahabdeen was a waiter cum manager of popular #o1 Stardust Hotel.
He learned his excellent skills there, under the direction of Danish perfectionist Per Goodman.
For reasons unknown to this reseacher, Sahabdeen decided to move on, and abroad.
We believe he made good income in kuwait, where he formed a family and saved some money to set up this new Hotel.
Now he is back agin in the middle east, completing his contract.
The hotel itself is run by relatives, but we are informed that it can be rented or given on a long lease for anyone interested.
End 2011 update:
We believe that this estblishment has now been leased / rented out and is run by others.
They have renamed the place “Fantasy Way of the Bay Hotel” .
We are not at all sure what that implies:
It’s up to you to come, find out and let us know in YOUR feed – back!
