      nice stay at the dschungel. the bungalows are simple but have a outdoor shower what was really something special. the room could be cleaner, but was ok. the great thing is the very friendly staff who cook some of the best sri lankan food i have eaten in sri lanka. also the boss is very pleasant and you should not miss the boat bird tour with him! it was just amazing! thank you for your hospitality! the area is very quite and 15 mins walk you are by the pidrangala rock. rent the bikes and explore the nature around. It was really a nice stay.

      Very nice tree house next to the Pidurangala rock!”
      Few rooms only in this resort which makes it pretty intimate. The treehouse was original, ours were supposed to be closer to the elephants passing by at night although we didn’t see any. It’s a bit refreshing to live out in the forest. Don’t expect WiFi in the room, there is no doors no windows. You can’t be closer to nature. If you hate bugs, this is not for you. The bathroom is an outdoor one. I screamed during the whole shower.

      Beautifully accommodation constructed with lots of privacy . Nicely finished rooms with outside bathrooms Good food - limited choices and a bit repetitive if there for long. We had a lot of rain - which made the place a bit difficult - better in dry and sun A wonderfully knowledgable naturalist to share information about the many birds and a good range of activities All the staff were wonderfully helpful and friendly

      Extraordinary stay, close to nature”
      A really thought-through speciality hotel! The bungalows are nice, but the tree-house is a *must*. The housrs are really designed to give you a relaxing feeling of the nature around you, while still maintaining enough privacy and comfort. The half-open showers are also a real kicker, as you are frequently visited by tree-frogs, etc. Aladin and his staff are a great and very professional help in organizing your trips around (e.g. to Polonaruwa or to the elephants, etc.). A backup-electricity generator was a great help, when everyone else around us was covered in darkness. There are cheaper offers around, but the extra money is well spent, as Aladin knows how to get you the most out of the limited time you have during vacation.

      Great experience ”
      Stayed 1 night in tree house. Very private. Had plugs, fans, bathroom downstairs. I was aftraid of snakes/spiders and monkeys. However, was all unnecessary- no wild life invasion. A few monkeys and squirrels played in trees around 6.30 am but none came close to us. We had 2 beds. One on floor (king) and one queen. No mosquito problems at all. It was quite windy that night but we all slept well. Lovely waking to the sound of nature. It is an eco lodge..so expect as such. Solar heating for showers which for 4 of us meant someone had a cool shower. Laundry was clean. Towels looked a little grey but were clean. The staff made our stay they will do anything to assist you. They don’t sell liquor they were prepared to send a tuk tuk to buy us a couple of beers. Had chicken and veg for dinner and curry for breakfast. All tasty. Not sure what bungalow accommodation is like but we loved our tree night experience! Thank you to Aladdin and amazing staff.

      What. A. Place”
      Incredibly warm and friendly staff at this unique place tucked away only a short tuk tuk ride / cycle ride from Sigiriya centre. I loved the fact it was away from everyone and the treehouse ensured our stay here was literally next level. No elephants passing by unfortunately but you can't win em all eh?! The national park's elephant tour showed off around 30 elephants for us, so we did in fact win em all. Couldn't recommend this place more.

      Great location if you are OK with potential creepy crawlies”
      Great location with a few minutes drive to Sigiriya rock. This is really back of beyond and the hotel is nestled in the middle of the jungle/bushes. We found tiny frogs in the bathroom sink and under the toilet seat between the gap where the water comes down when you flush. My wife found a small centipede crawling on her arm at 2am in the morning and she woke up screaming. No harm done, but we didn't feel comfortable sleeping there afterwards, especially when the kids were also sleeping in the same bed. So I wouldn't recommend this place unless you are OK with potential creepy crawlies roaming around in the night in the bedroom and bathrooms. Food was ok but options were limited. We were promised a fish curry for breakfast on the last day but realized it has changed to eggs without any prior notice.

      If you love nature and like to stay in a jungle but with fairly basic amenities, then this is a good place for you. Especially if you want to get away from the city life and technology. However if you are the metro type who cannot leave without modern amenities and technology, this is NOT for you!

      The tree house was exactly as described, you really feel like you are sleeping in the jungle! The staff are really friendly and nothing is too much to ask. The food is amazing value for money and is cooked with real care, some of the best food we had in Sri Lanka. The tours and safari are great fun and the resident naturalist (Thusitha) is so knowledgeable and goes over and above to make your stay special.

      A True 5 Star”
      Very seldom do I give 5 stars for each category, but B.B.P is so deserving. From the moment I arrived, the staff welcomed me and offered me the most outstanding service. I truly felt special staying here. If you are looking for a quiet, secluded place to stay- this is it. The open air shower is a great touch. The food is cooked to perfection (though it could have been a bit spicier), it was absolutely delicious. I like the fact that you can walk to the main entrance of Sigiriya. It is about a 2km walk along a very nice dirt path. On the path, you will come across many old statues, buildings and some monkeys. Thank you Back of Beyond Pidurangala! Cheers, Francesca

      great place to realy connect with nature! Super helpful and friendly staff! ”
      You can't get closer to nature. Since your bathroom is in open air you sometimes need to share it with some of the locals (read; a lost frog or some ants). But if you are a bit adventurous these are actually the things that make the experience even more unforgettable. It is very close to "the other rock" that you can climb early morning to see the sunset over Sygeria rock. Amazing experience. The Staff is very helpful and the food is good and fair price (dinner you order beforehand because they don't cook themselves). We would recommend this place to anyone looking for an adventure, you might even get a nightly visit from one of the wild elephants!
