Unique view of tea plantation whilst having massage
We didn't stay here, we just used the Spa. This place has a unique view over the tea plantations. We went for our treatment session at 8.30 in the morning and could see the tea pickers from our treatment room whilst having a head massage. We recommend the coffee scrub - so different and energising. Definitely recommend booking in advance as they get booked up quickly. A bit pricey but justified because it is luxurious.
What a unique place to stay, set on the side of hill with uninterrupted views an absolute delight. Very different to most places we have stayed in the past so this made our time here more enjoyable. There is a bit of a walk, plenty of steps to the dinning area but you can get a buggy to transport you if you so wish. You can walk up Little Adams Peak from the hotel which we did, and got a TukTuk to the Nine Arch Bridge only 5 mins away. Unfortunately the spa and zip line were closed due to the covid virus in fact most of the businesses in Ella had shut a shame but understandable. The meals at the hotel were fantastic with great service. We would like to return in the future when this pandemic is over to fully enjoy the area and this Hotel. Best wishes to all the staff for the future.
Views that will delight
Loved the rooms and the location. So lovely starting and finishing the day with a view of little adams peak. The golf carts were very helpful when that climb was just to much in the wrong shoes. The spa was perfect and a lovely treat to have during this stay.
Having stayed at this resorts on a few previous occasions we keep coming back to this resort as the staff are very welcoming and friendly. Spacious rooms with comfortable bed with a mosquito net and a big balcony overlooking Little Adams Peak. Lovely to wake up in the morning and go out on the balcony and see the mist over the tea estate below. A very relaxing and interesting place with plenty of activities if you are so inclined. You can visit the 9 Arches Bridge, Ella Gap and climb Little Adams Peak from where you get amazing views. The restaurant is situated higher up from the thatched cottages and the set dinner menu (5 courses) quite substantial that we had to request smaller serves. The food was delicious and again at breakfast a variety of food was offered. When we next visit Sri Lanka this will be a definite resort we would stay at.
The view from this hotel is incredible! Little adams peak was right in front of us, a great view to start the day. The staff were also lovely, very welcoming and friendly. We stayed in a standard room which had a balcony overlooking little adams peak. The rooms were lovely with a big balcony, comfy bed and great shower! The roof of our room was thatched and it seemed to have quite a lot of gaps in it so it felt a bit open to various animals who wanted to visit, I woke up to a squirrel on my bedside table one morning. The mosquito net on our bed didn’t really fit the bed. Lighting was also not great at night - quite dim and difficult to see, would have really benefitted from a couple of lamps to brighten things up. The walls also didn't go all the way up to the ceiling so not much in terms of privacy if you were going to the bathroom. The food was good, we had delicious meals both nights. They have a set menu with 5 (fairly substantial!) courses which seem to be compulsory. We tried to only have some of them but they kept bringing them all to us. A more relaxed menu where you could choose what you wanted depending on how hungry you were would have probably suited this hotel more. Little adams peak and the flying ravana zip line are an easy walk from the hotel - great way to spend an afternoon!
