We stayed for 4 nights in December in a boulder cottage, the team were kind enough to arrange a night in a tree house for us too!

The staff there could not be more helpful and kind. They are clearly so passionate about their work and their resort. There are monkeys and wildlife all around, beautiful.

Back of beyond really is in the middle of nowhere as the name suggests. Be prepared for bumpy tracks to and from, it is not easy to just pop in and out of. I think you have to come here looking for peace and space though so why try and get back to hustle and bustle while you’re there?

The accommodations are really exposed to the elements which can take some getting used to as a city dweller. Bring bug spray and use the nets. You are at one with nature, back to basics. Open roofed shower rooms mean that little guests can join you as they please. Solar heated water means you may have the odd fresh shower and there is a limit on water.

The food was really excellent, plentiful and varied.

The safari trip was incredible and we learnt and saw so much, we also really enjoyed a sunset boat bird watching trip it was truly stunning. I was 16 weeks pregnant at the time and they could not have been more accommodating and caring toward me, truly lovely.

It was a great experience.

Its a place must go. Perfect hideout off the grid. Natural surrounding is perfect for a nature lover. Tree houses were awsome and the food is super fresh and delecious. Friendy staff and they were helpfull atall the times. Highly recommended for a peacefull holiday out from busy cities and endless busy lifestyle. Natural waterways are perfect for a bath or a dipin. Perfect nature resort and a sustainable chain of resorts.

We spent three nights here in one of the tree houses and absolutely loved it. It's quite basic but very comfortable (think camping rather than glamping). We had a large mattress enclosed by a mosquito net, although there weren't many mosquitos which meant we could sit out and read our books.
There is a box that's supposedly monkey proof but most definitely isn't, which was annoying as they took all our food. There wasn't any hot water when we went but I didn't mind having a cold shower. A little frog took up residence in my wash bag :) . And we had a tree (house) frog upstairs which was lovely to see. The frogs at night were deafening, which made it hard to sleep at times, but hey, this is a nature experience. Maybe the other downside was that you're quite a long drive from Sigiriya and there's very little to do locally.
The staff were wonderful - always welcoming and helpful - and the food was particularly good - some of the best we had in Sri Lanka. Ashan was our wildlife guide - he is such a nice person - and accompanied us on an afternoon boat trip and a local farm walk - both of which were interesting and scenic.
All in all a great stay.

Hi and thanks for taking the time to leave your review. Sounds like you had a chance to really do some exciting activities while you stayed in our treehouse. We are so sorry about the monkeys... they are very clever.. sometimes too clever! We will be sure to let future guests to store their snacks in the drawers provided as those cannot be opened by small monkey hands. I will pass on your kind compliments to the staff.

Thanks you so much again and hope you will have a chance to come visit another one of our Back of Beyond eco-retreats on your travels in Sri Lanka!

Warm regards,
Mandi.
