A Nature Friendly Resort
WildGrass believes in the sustainable balance of the ecosystem and seeks to promote itself as an energy conserver in conducting business in harmony with the environment. To this end, considerable effort has been made to ensure that only natural raw materials such as stone and wood (as much as possible sourced from the neighbourhood or crafted by small businesses in the island) have been used for construction.
Solar power provides for hot water and for partial lighting. Roofs have been fashioned from clay tiles while the use of asbestos has been strictly banned within the resort.
In keeping with the resort’s mission to protect the environment, even the kitchens function responsibly, with some of the restaurant’s supplies grown in-house using organic farming methods.
Additional supplies of fruits and vegetables are sourced from the gardens of the village, thereby improving the livelihoods and well-being of its inhabitants.
Located 175 kilometres away from the bustling city of Colombo, the resort is ideally located in Lenawa of the picturesque Kumbukkadanwala village in Sigiriya.
Wild Grass Nature Resort is conveniently situated just 15 minutes drive from the famous Sigiriya rock fortress and the Dambulla cave temple and 5 minutes away from the mysterious “Kaludiya Pokuna”, known for its caves and ruins of ancient rock temples.
