A “MUST DO” in Ella!!!
Located in close proximity to all the main tourist attractions in Ella, 98 Acres offers the epitome of luxury and comfort... Lunch and dinner is a fine dining experience and the breakfast buffet, whilst the spread is limited, it’s very tasteful... The infinity pool has a unique “rock-like” finish and the view is breathtaking. (Wish there was a water heating machanism to extend the pool hours... the rooms are spacious and very clean. Lots of attention to detail in being COVID19 prevention compliant.
If you wish to forget about busy life and relax, this may be the ideal place. The resort is situated in a tea state with lush green surrounding. You will be taken to your room from the reception by a cart. There are few types of rooms like deluxe rooms, luxury rooms and executive suits. Deluxe rooms and executive sits are placed separately. Both are situated facing the mountains with exquisite view from your bed specially in the morning. Mist will cover the whole place and the surrounding in the afternoon. You will get the best view in the morning with sun start to shine. The place is extremely calm and quiet which makes you peaceful. They warmly welcome you warmly from the point of seeing you and will continue till you leave. The hospitality is exceptional. We visited there on my birthday and my wife has told this to them and they have arranged a cake and decorations at the breakfast. They didn’t even charge for the cake. Food was served in as Ala-carte menu. Food was good and had a good selection. There are variety of things to do. They have a spa, fitness center, swimming pool etc. The ella rock and the flying rawana mega zipline is in the walking distance.
One night in Ella
Stayed here for a night in Ella in Sept 2020. We booked the Deluxe. TBH, the room was a bit standard; nothing to write home about; all fitted with basic amenities, but a bit too plain for my liking. The view was probably the only nice thing about the room. The neighbouring rooms were way too close, and the way the mirrors were positioned, you could see into the other balcony/bed and we assume vice versa, so we had to keep our blinds down half the time for some privacy. The gardens were just getting replanted (i think), it was barren. but could certainly use some cleaning, as we spotted a few plastics and the ghastly sight of massive pipes protruding from below the villa. Breakfast buffet was average too (there was a random selection of Indian street food like pakoras), perhaps I had higher expectations cause of the way the property branded itself, or maybe it was cause it was on offer (post covid rates). Post lockdown measures were carried out well enough. Guests had to wash hands, and temperatures checked. Towels were wrapped in a plastic sanitized packing. The best thing about 98 though was the staff. Right from the helpful Receptionist to the staff driving the buggies. They helped us sort transport to Ella town in the night, and directed us on Flying Ravana and Mini Adam's Peak. 10 points to your crew!
