Located on the South Coast of Sri Lanka, 5 min from Tangalle and a 10 - min walk from the beach, Back of Beyond Kahandamodara is named after the flock of peacocks that strut across this land.

The rooms have either king-size double beds or twin beds. All rooms have ceiling fans and mosquito nets. Facilities include a Yoga shala, ayurveda center and swimming pool.

Had an amazing experience there, with a great mix of peacefulness, kindness and relaxing. Booked the full package with doctor’s treatment, massage and meals on top of accommodations, and it was clearly worth it as we left re-energized. The food and the site manage were everything we wished for.

We stayed 4 nights at the Wellness Retreat. It was the perfect place to unwind and relax after a hectic holiday in Sri Lanka. The resident manager / yoga guru Maja was a delight to hang out with. She was so helpful and kind to our kids! The pool was perfect and the food was amazing. The staff lead by ever smiling Wasantha was excellent. The lagoon boat ride and a dinner by the lagoon with bonfire is a must! Kids enjoyed riding bikes all around the large property. Fresh organic vegetables from the garden! Highly recommended!

You can hear the wonderful nature sounds of birds. The massage was great, The place is beautiful in terms of nature, BUT do not go in off season, i was the only guest, and the service was not good. Expensive in comparison of the rate of the place. As for food there is a small local restaurant with great view called “Crap king” near the resort.

Hi Taha. Thanks for leaving a review. We are as disappointed as you with this booking. Clearly there was a lot of miscommunication between yourself and your travel agent - unfortunately that is not something we can help you with. I'm glad that at least you enjoyed the massage and the discounts we offered you. Not sure of the local restaurant called 'Crap' King?! Doesn't sound great at all! Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Sri Lanka. Mandi from BOB
