The peaceful side of Arugam Bay..
in the middle of the bay, on a river's shore 200 mt far from the beach.

The space

The house is only 5 minutes walk from the beach,
but here there's no sounds of traffic only birds and monkeys, peacocks and a couple of crocodiles to welcome you..

Full immersed in the nature, the 2 only rooms available are on the 1st floor and they both have a big private wooden balcony with the view on the river and on our beautiful green surround.

There's the kitchen of our small restaurant open for our guests all day,
with fresh juices and italian and sri lankan dishes, next to our chillout on the river.

Guest access

We have only 2 rooms available, the first one (30 sq mt) with a double bed, the other one bigger (50 sq mt) with a double and a single bed great for families or friends (see the other Airbnb page: Leaf - Jungle House Family room) .
Both rooms are provided with mosquito net on every windows and fan.
Free WIFI in the whole property.

The guest will have acces to the big garden always ventilated by the season's wind, and to our chillout space on the big wooden deck next to the restaurant.
The place it's great for yoga and meditation. :)

This is a hidden gem - set just behind the Main Street of Arugambay but only a couple of mins walk to beach. Laura is a fantastic host - very attentive to your needs and extremely helpful with advice. She is a great cook and her breakfasts were delicious (particularly her pancakes as she catered for my gluten free habits) as was her curry! She also does laundry! We would highly recommend eating here. The room is extremely spacious with ensuite and a lovely balcony to sit and relax on come evening time, with a cool sea breeze and nice views. There is a very relaxed and chilled atmosphere a Laura’s place, a real beach hippy vibe. And what is particularly helpful is how good Laura’s English is - making communication especially easy and relaxed. A great place, my girlfriend and I would highly recommend staying here to all types of travellers!

If you are planning a trip to Arugam Bay and you don’t want to be stuck in a typical tiny cabana or an overcrowded resort then this is your place. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay st the leaf jungle house. It’s newly designed and built by the host, Laura. The room is located upstairs and a very refreshing breeze keeps it naturally cool day and night. It is extremely comfortable with new furnishings. The restaurant/dining area is a great place to hang out and Laura makes a fantastic pasta, which is hard to find around here. The best part is the location. 200 m to the beach but far enough away from the Main Street that you don’t get the noise. Highly recommended.

My partner and I had a wonderful few days stay at Laura's. Her house is a little set back from the main road in Arugam Bay - it is a peaceful spot but only a very short walk to the beach, shops, board hire, restaurants etc. We loved her house! Her own design with two rooms which she rents to guests- ours was big, airy with a balcony. In front of her kitchen is a lovely decking area and plenty of space to relax. We are very grateful to Laura. She is a great hostess, so very kind, and her cooking is excellent. You will also likely meet her little boy who was full of smiles. Even before we arrived Laura went out of her way to help me with some transport advice/arrangements. And one evening when I wasn't feeling so well Laura did all she could to help. She is working very hard to build up her business here and we wish her all the best and hope to be back to stay again!

The Leaf Jungle House is the ideal place to stay in Arugam Bay. For couples, boys, girls who travel alone, family.. Everybody. For these reasons: it is clean, super clean. It is big, it is located 150 meters from the sea and at the same time is far from the sounds of the central street. Lots of bar, restaurant, pub, market, night party all around. Maximum 10 minutes by walk to arrive at the and of the beach (main point) two minutes with the tuk tuk. There is quiet in her beautiful home, she is an amazing and friendly girl who will give you great tips for everything. Breakfasts rich and very good, (she is italian, the dishes are amazing u have to try pasta!) The room is spacious and also the bathroom, the patio is a beautiful place to relax. We recommend everyone staying at the jungle house because it is a wonderful place. We also met different people stay there, It was nice and very informative, chatting sitting at the table with a candle and lots of experiences to share. Thanks for all laura. You are one of the best remember for us about our experience in sri lanka. Altro

We highly recommend the stay at Leaf Jungle House. The spot is really nice especially if you want to escape the daytime heat with nice soft breeze blowing from the river side. The house is less than 5-minute walk from the beach close to Panama road with all the restaurants, supermarkets and shops. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable and decorated with taste. Rooms are equipped with a fan and mosquito nets. Also we liked the porch where we could relax and enjoy the view sipping delicious juice made by Laura and her team. Bathrooms are spacious and clean as well. We enjoyed having Italian pasta as well as Asian and Sri Lankan dishes at the restaurant downstairs. The prices were very affordable. And I can’t help but mention Laura’s hospitality. She kindly helped us with just everything we needed at any time. We had a lovely time. Thank you! Hope to come back some time in the future. Очень рекомендую Leaf Jungle House. Тихое место, уютный домик, новый, чистый, с просторными комнатами и ванной. Днем дует ветерок с реки (в которой живет крокодил, но прячется от людей), что спасает от сорокаградусной жары. От пляжа меньше 5 минут ходьбы. Рядом с основной улицей, на которой находятся все рестораны, магазины и супермаркеты. В комнатах большие кровати, есть вентилятор и москитные сетки на окнах. Есть балкон, где можно отдохнуть и насладиться видом. Ванные просторные и чистые с полотенцами, мылом, зеркалами,ковриками. На первом этаже есть ресторанчик с разнообразным меню (итальянская, местная и азиатская кухня). Готовят вкусно, порции большие. Цены очень приемлемые. Laura – прекрасная хозяйка из Италии, очень гостеприимная и отзывчивая, всегда готова помочь в любой ситуации. Также, можно взять уроки серфинга. Мы остались очень довольны и вернулись бы снова! Спасибо!

Laura is a wonderful host and always looks to make you feel welcome at her place. The room is clean, spacious and functional. The highlight would be waking up to the sounds of monkeys in the nearby trees and beautiful surrounding nature. Thanks
