It is a little far away from cities and towns in a beautiful place surrounded by a river and lakes a lot of animals, birds and the ocean is near. People and service is great. They really want to help you, this is a natural hospitality and these people have it. Food is amazing - we do not have to... More

Had an amazing stay at Back of Beyond. This is a real gem in the middle of nowhere but yet close to a lovely beach, very quiet but perfect for a morning stroll. We felt really welcome and we really enjoyed the visit of the gardens, discovering the fruits, spices, etc. Our bungalow was very nice, very spacious and loved... More

Nelson and his staff were amazing. The rooms were lovely and food was outstanding. If we had any food allergies or requirements, they accommodated us. Almost all the food is grown on site. It was a vegetarian dream. They also can do vegan and celiac. It was delicious and they were happy to tell us what delights we were enjoying.... More

Hidden away from the main attraction of the area but close enough to travel, this is a ideal location for relaxing with friends and family. Four separate bungalows which can occupy two people or largest which can accommodate 12 people on each can entertain individual family or larger family gathering.

Ideal for nature lovers, good local food given... but unfortunately we had very bad experience since constructions are going on. Very noisy surrounding and asked several times to stop but nothing happen!!! Beach was very rough and nothing more activities...

My friends and I (8 of us) visited Kahadamodara last November, as means of a farewell to an extended summer. Two of the group were to leave back to the US & UK, so this trip was meant to be a wild, free & fun vacation. This was my 2nd visit to a Back of Beyond location, and I was... More

3 families stayed at the Siyambala. The kids loved the pool which was one depth all over and even the 5 year old could just stand. so no worries. The beach is a 5 min drive, clean and isolated. Rooms are good, clean and even though no A/C it was not a problem. Nelson and the other staff are so... More

This place was even better than the lovely photos! Clean and comfortable, this eco resort really shines! We stayed in 2 villas, each beautiful, well-appointed and very interesting! We had clean sheets, mosquito nets and plentiful clean and fluffy towels. This was the 8th lace we stayed in on our trip to Sri Lanka and it was far-and-away the best... More
