There are many more options in Whiskey Point than appear online. Many locals are now building their own guesthouses and advertising on Airbnb or simply taking walk-in guests during the busiest months when accommodation at Arugam Bay reaches saturation point.

For those looking for a more organised or year-round option there are a few places to consider:

Paper Moon Kudils

New in 2015, built on the site of the previous Whiskey Bay Surf Resort and consisting of 20 “Kudils”, a restaurant and a pool. See Paper Moon Kudils on

Dream Garden

New in 2016, luxury accommodations with a restaurant and pool. See Dream Garden on

Babar Point

New in 2017, six bungalows, a restaurant and pool close to the beach with access to both Whiskey Point and Pottuvil Point. See Babar Point on
