#45 Sooriya’s Hotel

Sooriya Photos
#45 Sooriya’s Hotel is an AbaY Original.
Together with the very popular “Beach Hut” and “Rupas Cabanas” “Sooriya” is without any doubt Arugam Bay at its best.

Leaving fairly new establishments aside, such as modern hotels and others who may have copied the old traditional style of hospitality at Sooriya’s you will experience Arugam Bay in a way it has always been:

Good fresh, local food prepared by a brilliant and most interesting world traveled chef (Ram), romantic setting in a simple restaurant and a good crowd of regular guests, who seem to visit every year and remain loyal to their second home in the Bay.

Sooriya’s is of such international importance that in 2006 a book was published by Claudia Ackerman “Der Krokodilfelsen”. Set in the early 1980’s she recounts her experiences with Ram, at Sooriya’s and life at the Bay at this time.
As soon as a translation is released we will post details here.

    I stayed here in the summer of 2005 and had the best time of my life. Nothing beats the hospitality of Ram and his family. I have to say the food at Sorriya’s is exellent, as is the company.

    One day I will return.

    Was there in September of 07 and had the greatest time with Ram at his restaurant. Incredible food every night we we’re there to go along with the aloha. Ram and his family do a great job. I miss them now.
