This family run guesthouse has a great view and friendly atmosphere. The owner J.P. explained how things work in Sri Lanka, and told us what we could do in the Ella area. We had a very nice and interesting conversation. Our room was clean, every morning we had breakfast served on our own terrace. Bring some earplugs, for there are... More

One cannot come to Ella and NOT fall in love with the landscape. Sita's heaven is a walk away from the city and well worth it to get away from the road buzz and to really get an opportunity to soak in the view and vastness of the gap. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. We stayed here during... More

Rooms are clean and ok furnished. A second building next door was under construction but didn't influence our stay. What makes me ratung this place excellent was... Food: amazing rice and curry, fantastic pitta! Mr. Sita: honourable man that gives excellent advice what to do in the area. Ask him for the sunrise trip!

we stayed at Sita's heaven mid way through or trip around Sri Lanka. We reserved the top floor apartment in advance and were blown away by the size and comfort of the place. The large balcony is perfect for relaxing with a spectacular view of Ella rock. There is wifi, you just need to be sat in the right place,... More

this guesthouse was the only disappointment on my whole sri lanka trip. I have no idea why sita has such good reviews. He was not helpful at all and his main focus clearly was making money. so different to all the other nice people I met. I had the impression that as soon as sita realises that he cannot sell...

Sri Lanka is so diverse and has so many attractions.. So we tried to squeeze as many of them in our 16 days holiday as we could. Starting from the north (Anuradhapura) and gradually advancing south hitting all the points, we pretty much stayed one-two nights in each town and seen a lot of hotels within 2500-9000 rupees price range....

We stayed in Sita's Heaven for 3 nights and had a lovely stay. The room was big and clean. The sri lankan food was amazing!! We wondered why we would even go out for dinner...the food here is just delicious! The host was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely come back to this guesthouse.

When I arrived in Ella, I have to admit I was slightly dissapppointed by seeing the structures and places that were built in order to provide an answer for the growing waves of tourists. Flickering lights, loud music, pizza's and pastas. This didn't seem to match the Sri Lankan experience I was looking for. Fortunately, via a pleasant place I... More

Stayed 2 nights in January and it's an ok place to stay. One of cheaper options in Ella. But room isn't that clean, wi-fi is spotty at best, and it's a bit far from the town centre. On 2nd floor terrace you get a glimpse of Ella Rock but there are other places with better views. Hosts are very hospitable... More
