We had and wonderful evening and a great Cooking class with our chef Isuru Lakmaj Who made us the best curry we have ever eaten. The view over the mountains was amazing and the room really nice. We can strongly recommend a stay at View Point Ella and don't miss the Cooking class.

The setting of this place is great with awesome views from all the rooms. It's 7 km from ella but it is necessary to get the beutiful landscape and tranquility. Ella is quite busy so it's better to stay outside and go to visit. Isuru the hotel manager is so friendly and a great host. He's also an awesome cook...

A beautiful place to stay set in the hills of Ella. Clean, spacious and comfortable rooms. Honestly the BEST CURRY I TASTED IN SRI LANKA. I wish we had more time there to do the cooking course with the wonderful chef. It was my birthday and they put on an awesome spread with a cake, plenty of reggae tunes and...

We stayed two nights in these fab colonial style lodges amongst tea plantations well away from the hustle of Ella. The guys who run it are friendly, provide good food, music and a happy atmosphere of calm. No need to leave the place when you have views to die for, great service and no hassle.

Villas are up the mountain so a bit tuff to get up by stairs especially with luggage but guys working there are ready to help. This place worth staying first of all because of the view from each room and amazing fresh air in the morning. Second, because of very friendly young guys working there. They are also flexible on...

Arriving here after a very long bus journey, we were in awe of the beauty that surrounded us. The mountains of Ella are breathtaking! The staff at View Point were so friendly and welcoming, we immediately felt like "part of the family". Our bungalow was clean, spacious, simply furnished and had the most incredible panoramic view that you would only...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of September 2014 and received the best hospitality we had experienced so far on our trip to Sri Lanka. The rooms are a bit dated and could do with a lick of paint but everything else was superb and overall our experience was fantastic. The rooms have what has to be...

This villa has a great view, like the name says. The villas are spacious and the bed is of good quality. Bathroom is vast and the spa/shower does not function, just enough for a shower. Water is hot (electrical boiler). Food is excellent and 2 hours cooking course (curry rice) can be taken with the great chef Isuru. Staff is...

The food (especially the curry !) the view, the service, the house, the friendly guys working there : It's all really excellent. After travelling in Sri Lanka for 3 weeks this was the best place we stayed in so far. You really need to go there!
