We stayed 2 nights in the 98 Acres Resort in August 2014. The bungalows were spacious and well equipped. The shower / bath room was all natural stone - it reminded me a bit of the Flintstones. The view from our balcony was just stunning; you saw straight to Small Adams Peak. All surrounded by tea plantation. The food was... More

We have recently returned from a tour of Sri Lanka. We chose this place in preference to the one our tour company suggested in Ella and we were absolutely delighted. It is an enchanting place, beautifully designed with a incomparable views of Little Adam's Peak and Ella Rock and on down to the hazy plains below. We stayed half board... More

Having stayed in a number of top class hotels both on business and on holidays, 98 Acres is up there as one of the best. The location and views from each of the rooms were spectacular, you are within a tea plantation and can see the tea pickers as you are having breakfast. The staff were very attentive and very...

We had two rooms, one standard which was nice but small in comparison to the deluxe room which would recommend. Spectacular bathroom and the views are the best feature. Friendly welcome on arrival, helpful staff. Although the food was delicious the service was a little on the slow side but we weren't in a hurry, best not to be in... More

The views from this hotel are truly spectacular but what really stood out was the fantastic restaurant. Having read the previous reviews we expected good food but not the incredible meals that we had there. We have lived and eaten all over Asia for the past 16 years and the chef at the 98 Acres restaurant will stand out in... More

Having waited for our honeymoon to come around for over 10 months, and every week in the build up spent hours looking online at the amazing places we were to be staying, I must say 98 Acres left us both feeling a little disappointed. The views of Little Adam's Peak are spectacular and the rooms themselves are beautifully furnished, clean... More

After a full day travelling we were tired and ready to rest. A warm welcome and we were shown to our rooms. Great views over Little Adams Peak, tea plantations and the surrounding area. The staff were the best we experienced in Sri Lanka, we were welcomed to the lounge and looked after by Kamal. He ensured we were comfortable... More

We arrived tired and hungry from the long train journey from Colombo. We left relaxed and truly amazed at a beautiful part of the island. The resort is first class. It's peaceful, the view is spectacular the food was amazing and the service excellent. The walks are great. The bird watching and wildlife spotting a lot of fun.
