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.

My favourite thing was kayaking out on the lagoon as the sun set, and seeing the monkeys and bird life all around. Dreamy. It's well off the beaten track - we thought we'd come to the wrong place. Then you walk down from the road into the main area it's like a tiny village of acc…

Yohan's place is perfect - you can walk to a private beach, the food is amazing and the pool is beautiful. Couldn't recommend this place more and Yohan was the best host i've ever experienced with AirBnB
