The lovely tree house we stayed in here almost seemed part of the jungle canopy that covered the entire grounds of this peaceful retreat. Our room was open to the night air but - praise be - had modern bedside lamps you could actually read by. There were excellent communal reception and dining areas and there was a fascinating range of birdlife. Not surprising, since the grounds are considered to be a de facto bird park. The BoB owner is a passionate conservationist and this is very much reflected in the ethos of the place. Simple, delicious cuisine and friendly and knowledgeable staff. A great place to stay when you're visiting the Cultural Triangle and as close as you can get to living in the jungle.

My Mom and I spent one night in a cabin at Back of Beyond, and were sad we didn’t get to enjoy more of this lovely place. The facilities are clean and comfortable, the eco-friendly focus is great, the staff are welcoming and helpful and the proximity to nature is so special. Having an outdoor shower will be a highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka!

What an amazing experience we had staying in the tree house for 2 nights as a family visiting Sigirîya. The welcome is extremely friendly and the staff make you feel very relaxed and at home and they pay attention to all the details, going out of their way to please you. The location is perfect - a short walk from Pidurangala and as all the food is provided we didn’t need to leave the resort . The quality of the tree house is amazing and yet you still feel in harmony with the jungle and the experience of sleeping with the sounds of the animals and birds and showering outside is just unforgettable. I recommend it without hesitation!

We stayed at BOB Pidu - and it was an amazing experience. Perfectly located to climb Sigiriya and Pidurangala. The staff were amazing and were extremely helpful. Loved the local organic food expertly prepared by the ever obliging chef. Tree houses were very comfortable. Bike ride to the nearby tank is a must. Highly recommended for travellers who want to experience real Sri Lanka.

We stayed at Back of Beyond and had an incredible experience. The tree houses are amazing and have all the facilities that you need. The staff were really friendly and went out of there way to help you organize your stay. They offer experienced guides and the owner has a lot of knowledge about tourists needs. They can cater to all you needs on the spot (cycling tour, boat ride, guided tour up the rocks, romantic dinner). It was my girlfriends birthday when we stayed here and they did everything to make it a magical and memorable evening. Would highly recommend staying here to see all that Back of Beyond has to offer.
