What people say

"Area: Ella. Featuring the luxurious comforts of a boutique hotel, 98 Acres Resort & Spa is set amidst the stunning landscape of the 98 acre tea estate. A fantastic location for Nine Arch bridge -only an 8 minute walk away. This gorgeous retreat like resort is also only 700 meters from Little Adam's Peak which makes it a perfect place to stay the night before a sunrise trip for the views. The property is located 1.6 km from Ella Spice Garden and Ella Rock is 2 km away. Featuring free Wi-Fi, all rooms include a seating area, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, a kitchenette, dining area and a private bathroom and a bath or shower and a hair dryer and the accommodation has a beautiful outdoor pool.

"Beautiful hotel in Ella, up in the tea mountains. Wooden chalets are made of recyclable materials but full modern interior. Food is very good, from breakfast to drinks. Lots of activities to plan around"

Mentioned in these guides

Ella is a picturesque town surrounded by mountains and valleys. It’s a hub for a wide range of activities in Sri Lanka and because of it’s higher elevation it remains warm but comfortable year round and offers some respite from the rest of the country which can get stiflingly hot in season, or see a lot of rain out of season. Almost every person I met travelling in Sri Lanka remarked Ella was their favourite place they visited during their trip and I have to say it was also mine. The temperate weather makes Ella a great place to do lots of activities each day -you can go hiking, enjoy one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world, view Nine Arch Bridge, swim in waterfalls, go caving and swim in underground cave pools, take yoga classes, cooking classes, visit temples, and venture a little further for safaris. It’s an ideal spring board between Colombo and the South/East Coast and Yala National Park. The best way to arrive in Ella is by train from Kandy or Nuwara Eliya, but as one of the most beautiful train journey's in the world, you will need to book your train tickets in advance... my advice is to go for 2nd class- find out why, and how to book them in the "What To Do" section of this guide. Read on for all my recommendations on where to stay, what to do and where to eat for a FABULOUS time in Ella!
