The central meeting point to start your day or nightly adventures; the perfect place to meet fellow yogis from all over the world. Here you can enjoy a swim in our mirror pool with light background music, read a book while catching some sun in one of our sun loungers or just relax in a poolside bean bag with a nice glass of chilled goodness.
This is an honest Baja Mexican restaurant where you’ll find no Lankan-Mex cliches — only wholly authentic-tasting tacos, ice-cold beers, spicy mango margaritas and a simple but modern Boho setting where banter and good vibes are guaranteed to gush.
Pull up a seat. Kick back. This is where we unwind and indulge. It’s that stepping-off-the-plane-in-a-foreign-country vibe, it’s the weight of a margarita in hand, it’s that Sri Lankan sea breeze.
The Backyard is adamant about keeping our food offering small and delicious — no dishes acting as purely menu fillers here. You’ll have a straightforward choice of four tacos: Baja Pescado, Cajun Camaron, Baja Pollo and Crispy Cauliflower. Running alongside this will be an ever-evolving fresh and unfussed Pequeno menu including Al Pastor Mushroom Quesadillas, Guacamole & Hummus dips, Crunchy nachos and loaded potato fries, that the team are excited for you to share amongst friends.
In the space, there’s a covered dining area for friends & couples, and an poolside sun lounger s and beanbags area for those who want to chat whilst they sip cocktails, munch tacos and take in the tropical vibes. While The Backyard might not be a dusty cactus-filled garden in Mexico but the tropical pool vibes and dedication to flavour more than make up for this fact!
