We stayed here for 2 nights and loved it. Not only were the staff so friendly, the food was incredible! (Make sure you order in advance as they need about 3 hours to cook it all). The room was spacious with a balcony that looked out over Ella. The staff also organised a guide for us for a walk to... More

The time spent in Rawana Holiday Resort is one of our best memories from the whole trip. First of all - we got a room with a huge terrace (which is common for a couple of rooms located upstairs). The view from the terrace was so beautiful, that we decided to stay for two nights instead of one - as... More

Upon arrival we wanted a room with no stairs as my mother has a sore knee. We were told no- full. But later in the night & also the next morning we found all of those rooms were empty. & had not been booked. The water ran out, so no shower. It wasn't until my husband said we won't pay... More

Be aware. When you arrive you will get a decent price from the owner. When its time to pay they will try to screw you over. They also put an extra service charge on the room that hasnt been spoken of before. First time this happened to us in Sri Lanka. You will end up pay much more then you... More

We found this hotel when the one beside it charged too much. The staff from the hotel came running to flag is down. The rooms are spacious, we had two twins together as a king and an extra twin. Bugs nets are a must. Not so much for Mosquitos but I think I saw every other bug on the planet... More

We did not stay here, we were actually staying just next door so I can at least say it has a good location as long as you don't mind a short but steep walk up a hill to get there! We did eat here one night though and my god do I wish I could do that again. The rice... More

Stayed just one night. The room was comfortable enough with a lovely view. The dinner was amazing, a huge selection of different curries to try, some of which were truly delicious! Especially the aubergine curry and garlic curry! Yum! The hotel is in a good location for the town centre which is less than 5 minutes walk. Little Adams peak... More

We stayed here for four nights and really felt lucky. The staff were super helpful and friendly and we had a huge family room with three huge beds (we are five and this was the most room we had on our whole year of traveling). We even had a huge balcony with a super view of this beautiful area. Breakfast... More

I wouldn't call it a resort as it isn't very luxurous but since I don't need luxury, I didn't mind. The staff here is very welcoming and friendly and you can ask them anything. They always help you with a smile.
