Wild Grass offers the ultimate secluded luxury experience in the beautiful setting of Sigiriya. The resort limits itself to just 8 villas, set amidst 30 acres of unfenced forestland teeming with wildlife. Villas can accommodate 2 – 6 guests, with various layouts suited to couples, families or groups. The villas are designed to maximize guests’ experience of the surrounding nature, with panoramic glass windows offering a breath-taking wake-up view of the enchanting forest scenery. Private but open-to-sky bathrooms lend an exotic touch, and a private balcony or terrace for each villa extends elegant wooden decking over the lush grasses below and between the entwining trees.
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.
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 guided nature tours, 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.
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.Bill Bryson
