I had the names of several suitable guesthouses in Ella. Rawana was chosen because the recommendation for the restaurant. I was very happy with Rawana. A large room with a large bed. There was a huge shared balcony outside my room with great views. The room was simple but clean. Exactly what I wanted. The restaurant lived up to and... More

Welcoming small property with a range of rooms up a very steep hill slope. The upper, newly built rooms have a lovely large balcony, reasonable room and an okay bathroom. Plumbing or tiling is not first class in a new bathroom that leaks water across the floor and walls. The manager, was very attentive and helpful. Breakfast okay. If you... More

We stayed here for two nights and were treated like family by the staff. On our honeymoon we were greeted with flowers on our bed and had the best Sri Lankan curry and rice we ever had in the cute little restaurant. Do not underestimate it just by looks, it beats the food in town ten fold! Rooms are decent... More

When we arrived at this hotel we agreed on a room on the first floor, with hot water, at 2000 rupee. We got none of those. At first the hot water didnt work. We complained about 3 times untill they gave us a different room in the moldy, dark top floor which was unclean and dark- very different than the... More

We tipped up to the Rawana in the midst of a thunderstorm without a booking and were well looked after. Rooms are reasonably priced and spacious but basic. It's sat on the hill and you've a steep walk up to the rooms but it's worth it fo the stunning views you get to wake up to. Hospitality was good and... More

Mixed feelings about this accommodation. Steered here by our driver and was definitely not the best experience. Stayed in top level room. Terrible smell from bathroom, no hot water either in the evening or the next morning. Curry and rice dinner was pleasant. Breakfast acceptable. Staff friendly and generally helpful.

Firstly, I must say, the food was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!! The view (especially in the morning) is stunning. All over a good value spot to stop. Staff are very friendly and helpful and when we visited lots if renovations, such as painting of rooms, outside and stairs were in the process. Obviously a place that takes pride in itself, as seen also... More

Rawana holiday resort is in the centre of the charming Ella village, a bit up the hill. The views, if you're staying in the upper rooms, are splendid, the rooms spacious and clean, but the problem of the upper rooms is that you hear every single word your neighbours in the room next to yours are saying. If that is... More
