Wildgrass Resort offers a tropical jungle hideaway that upon arriving was like a huge metaphorical 'sigh' after the long,winding and cow-dodging journey from Colombo. There are only about 5 villas on the resort and a central lobby/reception with the dining room directly above where all meals are served (unless you choose to go for in-room dining). As mentioned in previous reviews the villas are two levels with the lower level housing the lounge room and bathroom and requisite outdoor shower! The upper level has the bedroom and balcony area. Service is warm,friendly and attentive and the food is more than satisfactory although would have benefitted from more local options. The location is well placed for Sigiriya Rock particularly.
- 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
