The focus on less rooms creates a wonderful secluded feel in the individual villas. Each one has a beautiful view of the surrounding area which can be viewed at all angles with the rooms having floor to ceiling glass on 3 sides. The outside shower is a great addition and adds to the jungle experience. We also had afternoon tea...

Thank you very much for your review. Very happy to note that you appreciate our concept where privacy and tranquility take priority over quantity. The afternoon 'tea with a view' is a signature initiative of ours and we are proud of the team's efforts to put together the natural seating which was not easy at all. This is a unique...

Close to Sigiriya and other Cultural Triangle sites, the Wild Grass Nature Resort is set among the forests. It has good road access. With only 9 villas, personal attention is assured. Each two storey villa is in a serene forest setting where birds, giant squirrels and an occasional mouse deer visit. Raise the blinds in the glass-enclosed bedroom on second...

The Wild Grass rooms are very unusual - they are a glass box with outside shower surrounded by trees. We loved it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms clean. The restaurant simple as was the food but good. Fun place to stay for one or two nights.

concept for this nature resort is very good, staff are very nice and are always helpful. houses/cabins are located in grassy/treed areas, which is nice, but there are many bugs/mosquito/geckos outside AND inside your cabin. Not that big of an issue if your the outdoorsy type, but waking up and seeing gecko dropping all over the floor from the geckos...

Service was great, check in was quick but not rushed. The rooms are fantastic. The breakfast was good but evening dinner needs some improvement. Both times we eat, the food was not hot and we were the only guests there. There is a cheeky little bar which is a great spot to relax

We broke our journey to the east with two nights here, staying in one of the resorts individually designed villas. Accessed by trails though the forest, each villa offers complete privacy to enjoy the surrounding flora and fauna. We found the service to be impeccable and the food of excellent quality. We particularly enjoyed the early morning birdwatching tour, witnessing...

The individual bungalows are delightful, especially the upstairs bedrooms. The outdoor restaurant has a lovely view of the mountains. The service is very good with very personable staff and manager. The location is great; very convenient to Sigiriya. Great for a couple or a family. It would be nice to have walking paths to the nearby lake.

We were looking for the perfect weekend getaway, and stumbled upon Wild Grass Nature Resort quite by chance. We fell in love with the place the minute we drove in.

Belated thanks for this very detailed review -- the small team at Wild Grass work very hard to please our guests so it is more a place away from home than a hotel.

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
