Wild Grass
Sigiriya

Wild Grass offers the ultimate secluded luxury experience in the beautiful setting of Sigiriya. The resort limits itself to just 8 villas set amidst 25 acres of untouched forestland teeming with wildlife, giving ultimate space to explore. The resort itself looks modern upon first glance, with rectangular concrete stilted buildings, but this resort is all about the natural surroundings and has been built in a way as to fully immerse guests into the forest and keep the accommodation comfortable but simple, stylish yet uncomplicated, so as to give full focus to the forest.

Villas come in two types, Deluxe Villa or Family Villa. The Deluxe Villa can accommodate 2 – 3 guests with one bedroom, living area and bathroom, and the Family Villa accommodates 4 -6 guests with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and living area. The villas have been carefully designed in different layouts suited to couples, families or groups and so you are sure to find the right match for your group type. The villas are also designed to maximise guests’ experience of the surroundings, with panoramic glass windows offering a breath-taking wake-up view of the enchanting forest scenery and merge the barrier between outside and inside so you feel connected to nature. The bathrooms have outdoor terraces so you can shower under the sky which lends an exotic touch, and a private balcony or terrace for each villa means elegant wooden decking over the lush grasses below and between the entwining trees. The interior of these villas are minimalist and uncluttered, with natural materials and wooden furniture, giving a simple living space.

An open-side, two-storey pavilion houses the restaurant and lounge, boasting views of the Lenawa Lake and the magnificent Kandalama Hills. Guests can also choose to dine under the stars on the terrace, by the picturesque swimming pool, or in the privacy of their own villas. On location dining is also offered here with sunrise breakfast and rural picnics at viewpoints overlooking Sigirya Rock and Kandalama Reservoir. Excursions are all about the great outdoors and local sites, with guided tours of Sigiriya Rock, Dambulla Cave Temple, and jeep safaris. 

Wild Grass prides itself on its strict nature conservation philosophy, and as such guests are encouraged to plant trees during their visit to offset their carbon-footprint. Other activities include yoga and meditation classes. Intimate, secluded and immersed in the natural beauty of the region, this idyllic retreat allows you to truly enjoy Sri Lankan nature without having to sacrifice luxury.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.

Client Testimonials

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
