A lovely eco mountain resort.
Visited for 3 nights as part of a Sri Lankan tour. Set at 1000 metres above sea level in the Central Highlands and close to the back packer town of Ella this is a 28 lodge up scale resort set on a tea plantation hillside. Magnificent views all round . We had a very large chalet with terrace and a 10 foot wide bed and all mod cons Very friendly staff and a panoramic bar and restaurant a hike or golf buggy ride from our room which was at the bottom of the resort . The pool is also located by the bar/ restaurant. A lovely spot but be aware of the need for a certain mobility and agility as there are a lot of steps although the buggys are very useful!
This seems to be a overrated resort to me. Nothing is special. We took premium deluxe room. Room is big, big balcony and big bathroom. But evrything is basic. There is not even a games room in so overpriced hotel. People who only and only likes peace can go.
98 Acres of Fun
As regular visitors to Sri Lanka, this was our fourth trip to this resort. This one was extra special as we embarked on a once in a lifetime family holiday with celebrations. And it certainly was a “Vow” experience for our first time family members. Apart from the beautiful scenery the staff and management were super kind and helpful in every way. We indulged in activities that far surpassed our imaginations, e.g. ZipLining and Quad bike riding. Thanks for the special effort in decorating our rooms. Much appreciated and we will certainly be back!
Tree Top Treat
98 Acres is a really lovely hotel. We had a deluxe room which gave us a corner balcony and it was worth spending that little bit extra to have the fabulous views to sit and have your coffee too or lie in bed and watch the night sky change. The room was really lovely - notes to the tea plantations that you are nestled amongst with a sofa and TV area. Channels are limited but there was a good film channel We made use of the golf buggy a couple of times as the steps up are quite long and in the heat it can be a push. The houses with the pools look incredible, we were on shoulder season and if it had been beautiful blue skies I would have been very jealous. The pool is cute not huge and not much space round it but their on loungers on all the balconies The food was ok, was not bad was not great it was just OK. The breakfast is buffet and was probably one of the weaker ones I had while travelling round. The room was lovely though and the setting is just incredible! So peaceful and always something to sit and watch whether it be birds, workers in the fields the changing scenery... it is lovely. I can not remember our room number I think it was 202 and it was perfect. We had a spa while we were there and this was GREAT! All home made products and the view from the treatment room was epic. The prices are extremely reasonable as well I would highly recommend a stop off here; you are right by Adam's Peake (30min walk from hotel) and 9 Arch Bridge (short walk from the hotel but be careful which way you go as we went an obscure way that was very muddy and challenging!) I would say it is paired back luxury - a lovely treat!
One relaxed night at 98 Acres
Hotel situated in a magnificent location in Ella Sri-lanka. Me and my family enjoyed their food very much. 98 Acres is providing a relaxed environment however they offer many other activities such as Archery, Zip Line, Down hill mountain bike. For nature lovers can do a hike through the tea estate to the Little Adams Peak. Their service is first class. Keep up the good work 98 Acres.
