About this listing
Welcome to paradise!
We named this land ‘Monaratenna’ after the flocks of peacocks that strut across it. The river winds its way down to the sea and the secluded broad beach.
Dine in the sea-sand restaurant, take a refreshing swim in the pool, go kayaking, enjoy a boat trip and relax or be active in the yoga hall.
Back of Beyond - Kahandamodara is an eco lodge close to Tangalle with a 4-bedroom bungalow, a cottage and two 2-bedroom villas. The units can be booked together or separately.
The eco lodge boarders the river Urubokka Oya, with the estuary (modara, which the village is named after) just a few minutes by boat or foot. The secluded beach is just a 5-minute walk away - a lovely place to start and end your day.
We do not only share these beautiful 14 acres with peacocks but with countless other birds, as part of the land is reforested with over 100 trees planted to date. The rest of the land is reverted to a dry zone farm. Our orchard with nearly over 40 varieties provides most of the fruits and vegetables we serve our guests. We have also started a butterfly garden, creating a flower-, fragrance- and joy-filled patches around the land.
Welcome to paradise!
The eco lodge’s bungalow, cottage and villas are located to maximize interaction with the outdoors while maintaining individual privacy. In total there are 9 rooms for around 25 adults, all rooms have attached bathrooms with hot water and are equipped with mosquito nets. The units can be booked together or separately.
We have now expanded the facilities with a yoga hall, a sea-sand restaurant, and a brand new swimming pool thus making it an ideal retreat, also for yoga groups, meditation retreats, corporate training or family get-togethers.
Set by a green lawn that rolls down to the scrub and pasture the Siyambala Bungalow is ideal for families and those who love to watch peacocks strutting around open lawns.
Named after the Siyambala tree that shades the entrance, this open format bungalow has four bedrooms, areas for relaxing and dinning at two levels. It can accommodate 8 adults and 4 children and is given out as a single unit. The large open spaces are specially designed with families and friends in mind. As with our other bungalows, we have added a pantry with a fridge which is particularly useful for families with young children.
The four bedrooms vary in character: The two rooms by the dining area are ideal for children and grandparents. The upstairs room with the stars coming in, is perfect for a honeymoon or for dreaming teenagers, and the room down the corridor is almost self-sufficient with a little veranda and extra sleeping in the attic.

I am the founder of Back of Beyond - eco lodges in Sri Lanka.
Back of Beyond was an idea started due to my love for travel and nature, and the difficulty faced in trying to find suitable accommodation to suit my budget and taste.
I am based in Colombo but I travel frequently to my eco retreats in Sigiriya, Yala, Anuradhapura and near Tangalle. Hence, most often I do not get to meet the AirBnB guests, but you will be looked after well by the wonderful staff at the different bungalows.
Relax & enjoy nature!
