Dots Bay House
Tucked into the idyllic scoop of coast that is Hiriketiya Bay, Dots Bay House has grown from a simple idea into an established part of the local community. Recognized as one of the must-stay locations on Sri Lanka’s south coast, Dots is a lively, creative collective of multi-use spaces spread across its own little corner of paradise. The Bay House now welcomes guests into its 9 rooms and 15 beds, and whether you’re staying in our spacious hostel dorm or lounging in a private bungalow, Dots invites all guests to explore all that the property has to offer. Our garden area is perfect to while away the day with a good book in our comfortable hammocks. If you're tired of reading, join other guest in our common area to play billiards, pingpong or jump in our swimmingpool. Our outdoor restaurant/bar is tucked away in a jungle setting. We’ve got the comfiest chairs to nap in while we serve fresh locally sourced food. Happy hour is daily from 18:00 till 19:00 and join our vibrant live music events on Saturday and Wednesday. In our new yoga shala we offer daily yoga classes with a oceanview at 8 am & 5 pm. Public spaces have free WiFi access, hammocks a puppies!
Dots first opened its doors in December of 2015, comprised of a single shipping container and five straightforward rooms. Dots was designed with the idea of providing something for everyone—and beyond that, introducing guests to entirely new experiences, as well as new faces. Focused on maintaining an open, relaxed atmosphere. We pride ourselves on being a locally-owned, sustainably-minded resort. We have set a community example by being the first plastic-free operation in the area, as well as serving organic and locally sourced food, and we continue to hold ourselves to a high standard of ecoconsciousness.
Sheltered from the rest of the coast, Hiriketiya is the hidden gem of Sri Lankas south coast. Known for its clean waves throughout the whole year, Hiri is the perfect spot for surfers of all levels. Even though Hirkiketiya is small bay it has a big variety of food options - from locally dishes to Burgers, Smoothie Bowls and freshly made Juices ! Hiriketiya is the perfect spot for going around on the south coast of Sri Lanka. Explore the country planning day trips. Visit the colonial city Galle, do a safari to one of the national parks or relax on one of the tropical beaches throughout the south coast .
