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

My friends and I picked the Kahandamodara 4BR villa for our slightly delayed Christmas vacation, and I must say it was just out of this world! :) It really was excellent on all fronts: 1. Staff was very eager to make us all feel at home 2. Food was fabulous no matter what we ordered 3. The lagoon made a... 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

stayed here for new year's eve. Great atmosphere and stylish cottages with open-air bathroom! The dinner was the highlight! huge jambo prawns perfectly cooked. Ranna beach is 5-10 minutes of walk away and the feeling of walking on an almost private beach is just awesome.

Excellent place to relax and the closeness of the rooms to nature is awesome. The nature inspired bathroom is a unique feature. Make sure you walk to the beach and do some kayaking in the river. There is no light pollution to obstruct your stargazing in the night, I've seen a very clear night's sky there. The staff is also... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time at back of beyond Kahandamodara. We loved the environmentally friendly architecture and construction of the buildings, the large open spaces and lawns, many trees including so many local varieties of fruits on the property. Many vegetables and fruits are grown organically on the property. The food was the best we have had... More
