A place with a total wrong description

The resort is in a deep valley - one half day we made a nice trip to a waterfall with swimming possibility
4
We did expect a very nice resort with a good view in Ella. However, the camp is deep in a valley - all huts a close to a river - the view is close to zero. The pictures on Agoda are completely different than in reality. To leave the camp a 4 wheel car is needed, which is charged 10 USD per trip to the road. Food, local vegetarian, is charged 20 USD per person, per meal. Atmosphere is quite nice - but prices are far away from any realistic values.

Beautiful hotel longing for revision.

The Jungle, the trips to the waterfalls, the bungalows veranda
5.7
Nestled in midst of a perfect picture stretch of jungle, the resort is a spectacular sight. The last stretch of the way is done by crossing the river in a beautiful cable car ride. Sadly we had the feeling that we arrived unexpected or on short notice by the staff. At first no one spoke enough English to do a proper check in or answer our basic questions. Nevertheless the room bungalow given to us was beautiful but longing for revision. Apparently neither the bathroom nor the Verandah of the bungalow was cleaned prior and after our arrival. Additionally we found out that there is no hot water, room service (only on request) and private bathrooms (need to be shared with the second/first floor party of the same bungalow). The food was of very poor quality and highly overpriced. (e.g. we were offered the same plate of the same five slices of old toast bread for three days in a row or 20€ for rice and vegetables in the evening) We were additionally annoyed by the waiter who didn't understand a word in English and that everything you were given without request (e.g water) or you ask for at breakfast (e.g. an egg) was charged for at the end of our stay (1 fried egg 4€). Overall we still had a good stay at the resort. The scenery is breathtaking and the included tours to the nearby waterfalls in the jungle were a pleasure. However, the service, food, state of the resort and room quality were in poor condition and need a desperate overwork and training by the none-existing management during our stay.

A great experience

Service, location, activities
8
The jeep brings u deep into the forest and then it was a quite a long walk deeper where no vehicles have access. Rooms are all by the stream of water so u wake up and fall asleep to the sounds of water. Very nature. No fans no air con no hot water and I am very appreciative of all that. The only down thing is that they don't serve meat, only vegetarian food. And since it's far to walk in and out. You pretty much have no choice but to eat there. Not too cheap either. But their service is great. There are free activities too.

the adventure

we stayed for one night and wad not able to sleep due to the insects also we had to walk a lot in a jungle at the night to reach the hotel. they refused to allow our driver to stay in the drivers room and I had to book him a guest room and pay for it. there was a power failure in the night and it got extremely hot without fan it could be a good place for adventures only.

Unique experience

surrounding, adventure, beautiful room
7.3
It is the most memorable resort experience I had in Sri Lanka. Upon reaching, the staff will arrange a jeep to pick you up in its sister hotel. It will be 3 km jeep ride and 400 m treking by foot. We reached in the evening, the treking was done in the dark with a torch. It was a narrow treking path with river flowing underneath, as it's our first visit, we do not know what to expect, the treking in the dark is thrilling. But it was a very memorable experience to remember afterwards especially if you are the adventurous type. The room is fantastic, with walls made of glass. One can wake up to the sound of nature. The shower is cold and open concept, don't expect too much on the comfort. But it is definitely an interesting concept, not forgot to mention about their wonderful zipline and forest treking experience.

a room with a fantastic view to the wilderness

1. the view from the room, 2. the wildlife, 3. the location of cabins along a jungle river
9.3
We stayed only one night and regretted not having booked for two. The cabins were thatched with two rooms and a shared bathroom. Our room on the ground floor had huge windows facing the river where water bounced over large boulders and you could take a dip with some care. At sunset we sat on the balcony over the river watching peacocks in the trees and squirrels. At breakfast in the open air restaurant several peacocks performed in the fields. A walking trip in the jungle would have been great, but time did not allow. The access to the hotel is at present a bit problematic for people with weak legs [a path with many steps], but the hotel is in the process of constructing a cable car. The management and staff were all very helpful and informative about the food and the surroundings. Children would love the wilderness and the peacocks.

Absolutely loved it. But not for everyone.

Location. Amazing room and food
9.7
Loved the ride and hike in. Loved the isolation. Amazing and classy tree house room. Loved the outdoor bathroom. Even more amazing spread of food. Most helpful and friendly staff I've encountered anywhere. Kids will be bored. Bring a bottle of red and a book for the balcony.
