Built on a scenic tea estate on 98 acres of land in gorgeous Ella

Built on a scenic tea estate on 98 acres of land in gorgeous Ella, 98 Acres Resort and Spa once belonged to a colonial-era tea estate, famously known as the ‘Southerland Tea Estate’. The old plantation has been converted into a promising, eco-friendly boutique hotel with stunning views of Little Adam’s Peak and the Ella Gap. The property’s design and construction reflects their commitment to the environment, as the majority of materials used in the construction have been recycled. ‘Illuk’ straw has been used to maintain cool temperatures, exuding a true Sri Lankan identity and elegance, while discarded railway sleepers have been put to good use in the construction of decks and walls. The furniture has been made by expert local artisans, using widely available timber for a warm and rustic atmosphere. Rough, hewn granite rock lends a simple, hand-crafted elegance to the look and feel of each villa.

The property has a beautiful pool, elegantly constructed with a deck of natural cut stones and a baby pool for children. 98 Acres also offers a range of herbal spa treatments using specific ingredients derived from locally-grown tea and other plants from the estate. All treatments are done in the privacy of a guest’s room. For guests who prefer to fly in, the resort-owned helipad is located just five to ten minutes away from the property. 98 Acres has a collection of exquisite chalets, spread across Superior Rooms, Standard Rooms, the Greenland Suite, Honeymoon Deluxe and Premium Deluxe.
