Hide Ella Hotel & Resort 

Hill country hideaway

A magnificent hotel, mind-bogglingly built on a 60-degree slope in the Ella Gap.

Sharp modern lines, an abundance of glass walls and multi-level decks come together in a contemporary engineering feat that rises up a steep hillside in Sri Lanka’s hill country. Impressive enough, even before you add in sensational views of the forested mountains, warm Sri Lankan hospitality, and an excellent position for getting out exploring. The contemporary rooms mirror the modern structure. The bathrooms are sleek, with walk-in showers, and the bedrooms are crafted with an abundance of natural wood finishes with comfy chairs positioned to sit back and enjoy the forested landscape, whether under bright skies or shrouded in an ethereal mist.

Why we love Hide Ella Hotel & Resort

  • The views afforded by the impressive multi-level architecture are wonderful at every turn

  • A contemporary infinity pool looks out over the mountains, perfect for returning to for a dip after a day’s hiking

  • The dining room is encased in glass and sits atop this architectural marvel for panoramic views as you dine on local dishes

  • The rooms are crisply modern with fabulous views, whether or not you opt for a balcony — although having a front-row seat of the view from a private balcony is well advised!
