Hotels in EllaBack
Cosily tucked away in the Badulla District, Ella has become one of the most highly-spirited and enigmatic travel destinations in the island and is regularly frequented by backpackers and adventurous travelers looking for a laidback atmosphere and spectacular surroundings. The landscape is completely absorbing and there are many picturesque hikes to be enjoyed, including trekking up Little Adam’s Peak and Ella Rock. Gaze out at stunning views of the Ella Gap – on a clear day you can see the seas of the south coast glittering in the distance.
Most accommodation in Ella is charming guesthouses, but it is also home to one of our favourite hill country hotels – 98 Acres Resort and Spa. Individual chalets constructed using materials which blend into the verdant surroundings are set separately along the hillside and have sensational panoramic views over the tea country and majestic peaks beyond.
98 Acres is famed for its wonderful chalets that have been designed and structured with utmost care and finesse. The materials used have been chosen to fit in with the lush surroundings, which also help maintain cool temperatures inside.
Nine Skies is a quiet boutique hotel just 15 minutes from the busy hill town of Ella. Sporting gorgeous vistas of mountains and tea fields, Nine Skies is a warm bungalow ideal for some relaxing down time, delicious gourmet meals and true local hospitality.
