This lovely boutique hotel built in the colonial style really does have a feel of the ancient city of Anuradhapura with lots of carved stonework which is very striking. The rooms are set in bungalows dispersed through the beautiful large gardens .There is a lovely pool area- a large part of which is shallow so good for kids. Being only a short way out of Anuradhapura, it is a very convenient hotel to stay at to visit the ancient city and of course Mihintale.
Wild Grass Nature Resort is a superb eco-resort where nature is very important. It is situated in about 30 acres of unfenced jungle so wildlife such as wild boar, deer, monkeys and even the odd elephant can be found wandering through. The Villas are set far enough apart so they are all very private. The villas are all built on modern lines using stone, lots of wood and a great deal of glass so you can enjoy the panoramic views – all their layouts are different. You can dine in the Treetops Restaurant, by the pool, under the stars or in the privacy of your own villa.

The food which is very good indeed, can either be served in the restaurant or your own verandah.
The Lakeside hotel in Anuradhapura was formerly known as Tissa Wewa Grand Rest House (it looks over Tissa Wewa- this is a lake) and was originally built by the British in 1907. It then became a former Dutch governor’s residence.
