Amazing gem
Amazing hotel if you want to get away from it all, first car then jeep then cable car to the valley, amazing views, rice grown on site, amazingly friendly staff lovely accommodation just a bit to open for a wersterner I would have liked some glass and some walls but I throughly enjoyed my two days there and would recommend if you want to be disconnected from the world and back in touch with nature

A wonderful nature experience - so relaxing
We had the most amazing time highlighted by the best service I have experienced in a long time, from the initial exciting experience arriving by 4WD and the trolley car down to the resort to the most enjoyable and tasty Vegetarian food. This was my first experience with a full vegetarian menu and I loved it. Make sure you have the Hoppers with egg Yum:) We were taken on a most spectacular walk to the waterfall nearby and swam there as a relief from the heat. Our Guide was great and the rope climb up the rock face was so much fun. From the Zip line to the general surrounds and trails by the river it makes for a great experience. Evenings sitting around the huge bon fire was a treat, again a most relaxed environment. You must have the Juggary ( lol not sure of the spelling and the buffalo curd with local honey. Loved it Loved it Loved it - if you want to drink take your own alcohol. A real experience but don't whinge if you are looking for a five start resort, this is a different experience back to nature.

A night in Ella
Was one of the best stays ever, you get the jungle feel, you're isolated from the modern world, relaxing and was an amazing one!

Beautiful Nature Retreat!
What a cool place!! Amazing location in the middle of the Ella Jungle. Disclaimer: NOT for the typical tourist. If you just want a normal, boring hotel - this is not it! This place was a great retreat into the beautiful nature of Sri Lanka's mountains. The property is breathtaking, the rooms are great, the food is delicious, and the staff is super friendly. Highly recommend the waterfall hike :)

Cable Car on arrival
After thinking I was spending time in the jungle and being awake all night at the previous hotel, this jungle resort required a 3km journey then a cable car to an oasis of zen. The staff were so helpful and friendly. I had meals specially prepared that were some of the best Sri Lankan food I have had to date. I only stayed one night but could have easily stayed longer. They were very helpful with transport so even though it’s a bit out of the way -whilst there you want for nothing and they can take you back to station quickly when needed. Recommend +++

Ligger veldig øde til, følte oss litt "innestegnt".

Poor 2.0
Forferdelig sted
Hyttene er møkkete, uten vegger og med felles utedo for de som bor der. De serverer kun vegansk mat. De er uten roomservice, brus, alkohol samt. ting å finne på. Du blir transportert på lasteplan ned en ganske ubehagelig vei og må ta taubane for å nå hotellet. Mangel på sikkerhet. Det var rotter på stedet og personalet var ikke veldig hyggelig.

Gemt perle ved Ella
Smuk perle godt gemt væk ved Ella. Medbring selv drikkevare da der ikke serveres øl/vin eller sodavand. Stedet serverer kun vegetar mad. Hyggelige værelser midt i den smukke natur

Djungle horror!
En besvikelse då stället var illa skött. Alldeles för högt pris på rum och mat. Möjligt badrum, enda toalettartikel de tillhandahöll var tvål. Utlovade Wifi vilket onte fanns. Mkt behränsat med mat/dryck. Tjat om att dricksa till höger och vönster trots att aktiviteter skulle ingå. Bott/ätit för liknande pengar på Grand Hotel Nuwara Eliya.
