We stayed at the Wild Grass resort for 2 nights at the beginning of December and whilst not cheap it was a really special treat.
The resort is in a lovely secluded location but fairly close to Sigiriya and Kandalama and can be easily reached by bike or tuk - tuk which Tissa the manager will happily arrange.
Tissa was an excellent host and had the amazing knack of gauging his guests, their capabilities and needs.
The staff in general were all very pleasant and discreet. The food was excellent.
The construction of the lodges are first class using lots of natural wood and with floor to ceiling windows, you feel almost at one with nature - especially in the outside shower under the stars.
The highlight for me was sitting on the veranda, with a nice glass of red, listening to the sounds of the bush .Fireflys dancing in the darkness - just magical.
The only suggestion I would have is to reduce the price slightly so more people can appreciate what you have to offer and invest in a couple of decent trail bikes as the 2 for use at present are basic and a little uncomfortable with faulty gears and brakes.......but hey, what fun!
- 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
