A short walk from the little one street town perched on hill overlooking the valley and Ella rock is Ravana Heights. A great little place with friendly staff, delicious breakfast and amazing dinner if you choose to eat in, the Sri Lankan Thai fusion at this place is really worth a try!

The view is breathtaking and the rooms cosy and comfortable. Easy access to main street of Ella and the long but rewarding walk to Ella rock. Dinner was devine with some beautiful flavours I have never tasted before. Not sure why people are complaining about $15 for dinner. Freshly prepared that day and the dishes never stopped coming.

We stayed here for 2 nights last week; the mountain views are amazing, the breakfast great and beautiful gardens. the host attempting to be charming comes across as arrogant. Avoid room 3 at all costs, it is nice enough but was small compared to others and there were several old mattresses stacked outside the door and just off the terrace... More

Cool place with nice view on mountains. Meals were good despite their far too high price (15$ for diner). This is a good guesthouse but definitely overpriced as service expected from hotels at this price (120$ with charges) is really missing. First, rooms are not spacious and there is no proper room service (cleaning of the bathroom not done for... More

Stayed here for two nights. The views from the rooms are just wonderful with the clouds billowing over the face of Ella Rock. Also the breakfast was extremely generous and the terrace to eat on shares the same views as the rooms. It's also very clean but we found some dead bugs in our bed. NOT bed bugs I must... More

We stayed 2 nights in Ravana Heights in July 2014. The rooms was luxurious compared to most of our other stays. The Thai meal cooked for us the first evening was excellent. The owner and his staff were unfailingly pleasant and helpful. The views over the mountain are fantastic and we would recommend this guest house strongly.

We had a great stay at Ravana Heights in Ella. The views from the room and the hotel balcony are fantastic, the breakfast is excellent and the staff are welcoming and knowledgeable (from dinner tips to local/global politics, if you decide to venture there!). I have to say that Ella was not the magical mountain town the Lonely Planet had... More

Ravana Heights was THE surprise of our stay in Sri Lanka, unfortunately Ella was the only place where we stayed only one night. In Ravana Heights, it was simply amazing, beautiful, cosy, perfect! Senadhi was extremely welcoming and fun to talk to, and his staff so charming. Wow this breakfast on the terrace with the view!!! And we loved Ella.... More

Very good location with fantastic view. Delicious dinner worths for trying, but you can eat cheaper in the city (try both). Owner speaks english excellent. Good ajurvedic spa only 100m far. We expected a bit more for that price, but aren't disappointed. We started to hate owner's small talks about money, high taxes and guests not paying tips, because it... More
