8/10 Very good

Beautiful views and good service
We had booked a Premium Mountain view room for 3 nights as part of our trip around Sri Lanka. The hotel is located about a 5-10 minute drive outside of central Ella near the 9 Arch Bridge and Flying Ravina. Check in was quick and we were taking by golf buggy to our room. Rooms are large with a great view of Little Adams Peak. The rooms don't have air conditioning, but a ceiling fan above the bed which did help to keep the room cool - however we were only given 1 room card which meant each time we left the room the electric turned off and was slow to cool down again. The room was clean and had a very large bed, a very small wardrobe with a safe, a TV and sofa area and a desk area with plug sockets. Bathroom contained a toilet, large shower with a rainfall shower head which desperately needed descaling as was dribbling water and a smaller handheld shower and sink. Each room had a balcony to sit and enjoy the gorgeous view. Tea and instant coffee making facilities and fresh bottled water was provided each day and there is a large fridge/ chargeable minibar in the room. The doors and windows don't 100% fit so be prepared for some mosquitos (there was a net over our bed but it had a number of holes in it!) The hotel has a restaurant and bar on-site which offers a varied buffet breakfast (although some covers are needed as there were a lot of flies on the fruit and pastries) and and extensive dinner menu.

The view from the villas are breath taking. The room is basic with no air conditioning nor fresh air ventilation into the room at nights. The windows cannot be opened due to mosquitos. It is a steep to climb up to the restaurant and to the hikes and the 9 arches. Unsure if wheel chair accebility.

This resort was absolutely beautiful. The room was very well appointed and super comfortable. Staff extremely attentive. They had a golf cart accessible to you to take you from one place to the other so you dont have to walk it all. We went to the spa to have a massage and that was also great. If I had anything else to say about it is that perhaps they lack a little bit on the restaurant part. Not many options and the food was not great. Other than that, the hotel was great.

The most amazing view to wake up to, i could sit on the balcony and stare at it for days. That’s really what you’re paying for, the service and food is good but the view is everything. We were a little surprised by our dinner bill for two nights at checking out, but then it is a luxury hotel.

6/10 Good

Great hospitality of the night receptionist
They would welcome you with some fanfare which felt abit weird for me haha... The neck of flowers. But it was welcoming for the warm tea and warm towel. Check-in was quite fast. Thanks for that! The night team when I was there during week of election is superb. It was pouring heavily, I still wanted to go to the city to have a look and dinner, and he was all ready to help. He even kindly arranged for a tuktuk with Mr Ashok help to try to wait for me so that I can safely come back without worries Truly made my long and rainy day at Ella. Also after that I realised if it is raining maybe I could have asked a buggy to send me to my room up the hill a little. Breakfast is a sumptuous buffet spread with good view and sunlight. If you can have more time there, it is good as you can eat more and slowly :) It was strange that when I went out for a short afternoon walk, someone came to do room service right after I checked in 30mins before.. Made me feel weird. Other than that, location of the resort is good. There is a short cut to the mini Adams peak via helipad route, saves you a lot of walk. They do not provide money exchange.
