What a paradise; our own air-conditioned villa where we watched wild peacocks, monkeys and water buffalo walk past us. After showering in our private outdoor bathroom we could sit naked in the sun to dry. We had the swimming pool to ourselves for hours (except a tiny tree frog joined us). We ordered coconut milkshakes and had them brought to the pool! The meals at the restaurant were delicious and 3 nights we watched the lightning flash across the dark sky showing silhouettes of the distant mountains. The frogs and birds (including peacocks) sang in the night rain. The staff helped us whenever we needed anything, but left us alone most of the time so we could enjoy this beautiful place and each other. Nearby we visited the elephant refuge.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled in the heart of an enchanting forest, amongst the whispers of trees and magical birdsong, there exists a slice of paradise. Surrounded by jungles, a lake and the Kandalama hills, Wild Grass is a welcoming eco-retreat located in the Cultural Triangle between Sigiriya and Dambulla. Wild Grass is set amidst 30 acres of unfenced forestland that is frequently visited by rabbits, deer, wild boar, monkeys and over 40 species of birds as well as the occasional wild elephant. It is the ideal location for nature lovers, whether families with children, couples or honeymooners, who wish to enjoy their holiday disturbed only by the sounds of nature, while enjoying the ancient history and marvels of the cultural triangle. A strict nature conservation philosophy is followed here and much is being done to preserve the natural eco-system. Organic farming methods are used to cultivate fruit and vegetables for the resort's own use with the balance requirements purchased from the adjoining village. The unique feature of Wild Grass remains its exceptional natural beauty and absolute solitude afforded to the traveler seeking a perfect rest. Intimate and secluded, the resort limits itself to just 8 villas in the entire property, adequately spaced out to make privacy the ultimate luxury. ... more less
