We booked our Sri Lanka honeymoon through the excellent Experience Travel - real experts on the country and incredibly helpful.
Wildgrass is situated near lake Kandalama and is nestled in lush green surroundings teeming with wildlife. We really started getting closer to nature here. Our chalet had incredible views and every luxury you wouldn’t expect in this location. The room was absolutely huge, and had glass walls to feel like you were right in the jungle. The shower was in an enclosed but outside space – this was so nice to be out in at the end of hot days.
The service and food were again really good, and we enjoyed being karted around in a golf buggy during a couple of down pours!
There were some amazing bird watching and nature walks to go on. We also went on elephant safari, to the incredible Sigiriya and the less impressive but worth a visit Ritigala.
All in highly recommended, especially for nature buffs!
- 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
