Where you’ll be

Habarana, North Central Province, Sri Lanka

Far Cry is situated close to a rural community in a forested area of the country. We are situated neighbouring a wild life reserve, and a large irrigation tank (lake). The 5 acre forest garden is home to many species of animals and birds. The retreat is a delightful sanctuary in the wilderness.

There is plenty to do at Far Cry. Take an early morning stroll in the sun dappled garden for a spot of bird watching, feeling the freshness of the dew around your ankles, take a dip in the pool before the sun rises to its zenith, or relax in a hammock under a shady tree, with a cold drink at hand. Enjoy an alfresco candle-lit dinner or a barbecue at night, or some moments of quiet contemplation under a starry sky with the sounds of the forest gently drowsing you to sleep. Alternatively, explore your spiritual side and practice yoga or meditation in a secluded grove or on the specially prepared path for walking meditation.

If you tire of just “chilling” at Far Cry the region around Habarana and Far Cry offers many attractions. The more energetic could make excursions to the ancient monastic complex of Ritigala and the Ritigala Strict Natural Reserve, Wilpattu National Park, the Minneriya, Kaudulla And Kalawewa National parks for elephant and bird watching, The Avukana Buddha statue and the majestic Kalawewa Lake, The Sigiriya Rock, The Dambulla Cave Temple , the Ruined Cities of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa, or even the old Port City of Trincomalee. There are many other places of historical and natural interest in the Cultural Triangle within easy reach.

We now offer safe and comfortable full day guided excursions to most of these places, please inquire for details and prices. For every full day excursion you book, enjoy 20% off a night at Far Cry. (This discount is now only available for bookings made before 31 January, 2022. Terms and Conditions Apply.)
