If you are looking for a very special place, this is it! Situated out in the jungle, 4 km from main road, very good lodges with bathroom outside, fantastic veg food, skillfull and dedicated staff and lots of possibilities for trekking or just relax and enjoy your life

Our stay at Ella jungle resort was a very special experience that we will never forget. We have already recommended the place to several that we encountered on our three-week holiday in Sri Lanka.

We arrived at Ella jungle resort after a beautiful train ride from kandy to ella. It was pouring down with rain on arrival and I was surprised that we had to take a jeep and then a ten minute walk on foot in the rain. We were with another family who had a small child and they had also not... More

Food was delicious. Peacocks are all over the resort around breakfast time. The jungle hike was challenging and fun and the swim in the waterfall, was cool. Anu is a... More

We went to Ella Jungle Resort in september of this year. It was an amazing experience sleeping in the middle of the jungle. The people who were working there were very kind and helpful. They made our stay one to remember!

We stayed here for one night. The accommodation was lovely. Good mosquito nets, always a plus. Staff very friendly. Food lush. It is a walk down but only short and well worth it. Scenery stunning and a swim in the river is quite refreshing. I would definitely stay here again.
