Back of Beyond Pidurangala Sri Lanka

Overview of Back of Beyond Pidurangala

Hidden in 4 acres of forest at the base of the Pidurangala rock is our retreat, which the villagers themselves have named as “Kurulu Uyana” – Bird Park. A bird park in the wilderness it certainly is, but there is even more that you can enjoy: walk or ride to explore the 5th century World Heritage site of Sigiriya and our mighty neighbour the Pidurangala rock and ancient monastery. A 30 minutes drive will take you to Minneriya and Kaudulla National Parks where the world famous Wild Elephant Gathering takes place. But we have to admit, the peace of forest and the little (and not so little.. such as elephants!) creatures that inhabit it, has often made us spend entire vacations right here within our premises.

Accommodation of Back of Beyond Pidurangala

Three individual cottages – named after three of our favourite resident birds Shama, Iora, and MalKoha – share a common lounge and dining area along with a little pantry. The cottages, each with its own verandah, are designed to maximise the impact of the forest. As our attics seem highly popular, we added one at Weera as well. It leads off the lounge area and can be used for additional sleep space or for reading, writing, bird watching…or for playing games on a rainy day.

In keeping with our philosophy of minimising energy usage our bedrooms have fans rather than air conditioning. Given the jungle setting, we have provided mosquito nets for all the beds. Rooms have attached toilets with hot and cold water.

Dining of Back of Beyond Pidurangala

Food has always been a vital part of our family holidays…part of what makes up our travel memories! In keeping with the traditions of our Back of Beyond retreats, our cook at Kurulu Uyana will prepare a wide variety of Sri Lankan as well as western dishes. The village flavor predominates in the Sri Lankan food, and there is a distinct ‘Sri Lankan touch’ to the western dishes.

Rooms are offered on Bed and Breakfast, Half Board or Full Board basis.

We can also pack you a picnic lunch should you be spending the day exploring.
