Enjoy the wild side of Sri Lanka! Only 15 min. from Yala NP and next to the beach, this rustic cottage has been designed in the traditional style of village homes in the dry-zone of Sri Lanka. Enjoy sleeping out in the open verandah listening to the soothing call of the nightjar and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach just beyond the scrub. There are closed rooms for the less adventurous. The cottage sits on a large 4 acre land full of dry-zone scrub and home to many native wildlife.

The stars and the rising moon, with the sound of the sea breaking on the rocks hidden below the forested cliff is the perfect end to a long day out on safari at Yala National Park, or exploring the ancient sites of Ruhuna. For the lover of the wilderness, the symbiosis of lodge and wild will make you feel right at home in and with nature.

Back of Beyond Safari Lodge Yala is a peaceful home to come back to after a day of exploring. To rest on the open veranda with a cool natural breeze as the moon rises over the invisible ocean, is to live the romance of the remote dry zone villages.
There are 3 cottages including an air-conditioned cottage with a large open veranda, for dining, lounging and sleeping; they can be booked separately or together. Please contact me for more information.

Back of Beyond - Safari Lodge Yala is created as typical park cottages with a large open veranda, for dining, lounging and sleeping, with a small enclosed area for sleeping and keeping your gear. We have been inspired by the traditional clay wall and thatch roofed homes of the dry zone, our cottages are built with mud bricks, thatched with talipot fronds and have a semi cleared garden that merges with the scrub land and jungle beyond.

Our Safari Lodge consists of 3 separate cottages – ‘Malittan’ accommodating 5 and ‘Debara’ 7 guests and the air-conditioned 'Ehela' cottage for 3 guests (a total of 15). The cottages have one enclosed room each which sleeps 3 persons, the others will be following the tradition of Sri Lankan wildlife parks, sleeping out on the veranda under the mosquito nets swaying in the gentle breeze. The character of the traditional simple dry zone homes is merged with all the modern comforts you would need for a comfortable stay including crisp linen and airy modern bathrooms with solar-powered hot water.
Keeping with the feel of Yala and the Back of Beyond philosophy, air conditioning and TV are not available in this rustic cottage; we encourage our guests to immerse themselves in the pristine beauty of this natural landscape and simply 'unplug' and enjoy. We do have wifi however as we realize it's impossible to travel without it these days!

Our friendly staff includes a manager who is a wildlife wizard and passionate conservationist as well as house-keeper and cook. Food has always been a vital part of what makes up our holiday memories! In keeping with the traditions of our Back of Beyond retreats, our cook at Yala will prepare a wide variety of Sri Lankan as well as western dishes. The flavors of the coastal south predominates in the Sri Lankan food, and there is a distinct ‘Sri Lankan touch’ to the western dishes. We can also pack a picnic lunch should you be doing a full day safari or excursion.

Activities and excursions:

- Safari at Yala National Park
The very reason we have our little cottages at Yala, is to allow us to visit and re-visit Yala (Ruhuna) National Park. In spite of being famous for having the greatest concentration of leopards in the world, Yala is much more: herds of elephants, lone tuskers, sloth bear, wild buffaloes, deer, sambhur, jackals, crocodiles, innumerable birds, butterflies, trees, landscapes…the list goes on.
For the morning round, we recommend you leave the cottage by 5.45 am to be at the Park gate as it opens. The best time for departing for the evening round is around 3.00 pm. If you prefer to spend the whole day at the park, take a picnic lunch and break journey by the Menik Ganga.

Beyond Yala, there is much more to explore in this part of the island:

- The beach is only a 5 min. walk away! The coastline is rugged and wild. Craggy rocks, red, black and white beaches, rock pools and sand dunes give you hours of beach walking.

- If you are a bird enthusiast, Bundala National Park (40 min) and Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary (1.5 h) offer excellent sightings, especially during the migrant season.

- The remains of the ancient civilization of Ruhana are scattered everywhere. Within easy access are the well-known sites of Kirinda (15 min), Sithulpahuwa (45 min), Tissamaharamaya (20 min) and Kataragama (45 min) as well as the lesser visited ones of Yatala (30 min), and Thelulla Dagabas (30 min).

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. Hope you have a wonderful experience at Back of Beyond. Relax & enjoy nature!
