We are bike touring through Sri Lanka and had to hurt our legs a tiny bit more to ride up the steep hill to the guest house. We loved our stay here - the beds were comfortable and the rooms were small but clean. The location was delightful, at the edge of the forest and with great views across to... More

Nice guesthouse above Ella, in walking distance from the center via a very steep road. Quiet setting in the forest with own restaurant. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed in the evenings but the one dinner we had was very good. Nice and clean rooms. The owner is very helpful and helps you to organize day excursions tho the landmarks around... More

I loved Ella do much that I stayed there twice- One time With a friend and 3 weeks later with my boyfriend. During that time, I left One bag at Forest paradise, what made Travelling a lot easier and was really of the owner to keep it for me. The rooms are clean and nice and the prices are reasonable....

We spent 2 nights in this lovely place. It's a short walk outside of the town's center located right on the edge of the forest: beautiful and quiet. The host can provide you with all kinds of useful information and the laundry was cheap as well. Definitely worth staying!

It's a peaceful place close to the town but not on the main road. Rooms have a nice view and a little balcony with forest view, so you can enjoy the silence, the rain and the birds. The breakfast is rich and tasty. Wi-fi available in the open restaurant. Staff is friendly and the owner Nelly is very helpful and... More

Nelly, the owner of sincere wilderness, was very welcoming, a great person to talk to and also very helpful and kind. The rooms were very clean and they all have a great view since the place is located in the forest and yet 3 min. Walk from town. Highly recommended!

As the name says, a peaceful place in the middle of the green trees and grass. Sounds from nature will relax your mind. Service was excellent, and staff comfortable. The owner seemed to have a very good sense of humor ;), and he also did everything he could to help us. He finds out bus timetables and arranged tuktuk-driver to... More
