spent 3 nights @ 98 acres Ella with friends . The accommodations and views were heavenly . The service at the resort was world class with Prassana who took care of us at the restaurant outstanding together with Oshan our butler who was brilliant . Hiking and other outdoor activities are all in close proximity to the resort which was convenient and is the best place to recharge yourself and forget everything else while you are there .

A two night stay at 98 Acres was my 1st year anniversary gift by my husband.It's absolutely a fantastic resort with a breathtaking panoramic view.The property is soo beautiful and was a  splendid stay in the rustic interior.The staff is soo friendly and love the delicious food.The Candle light Dinner arrangement for our anniversary celebration was very well organized with a lovely cake.There was a staff member called "Prasanna" who was soo pleasant & helpful & he treated us soo well with great hospitality.Also Flying Rawana was a great experience with sufficient safety instructions.It was indeed a fabulous & a memorable stay at 98 acres.Will be visiting again ❤❤❤

An amazing experience. Let me paint a picture for you... Close your eyes and dream about spending a weekend at a cottage over the hills. With a view to die for. You wake up in the morning to the sweet melody of birds chirping, the sun brightly appearing over the mountain tops, a cozy room that doesn’t even require and air conditioner and a bed so comfortable you don’t want to leave it. Now add to that picture, extraordinary hotel service. Now wake up!!! Cos it’s not a dream.. you can enjoy all this at 98 Acres. I would say when selecting a room to always speak to the hotel staff. All types of rooms have a view but the best ones are numbered from 1-3 whether it be the delux, honeymoon or executive suits. We chose the one with the balcony pool and it was the best decision we had made. Private, romantic and so secluded you feel like you are part of nature itself. Due to covid there were specific precautions taken and most meals had to be taken at the restaurant while maintaining social distancing. You can opt to go in a butler driven buggy or a romantic walk through the tea plantation to a meal worth the wait. All the 3 course meals we had were perfectly balanced and just right for the two of us. In a way I’m glad the buffet options wasn’t available. I would say that the cherry on top of this eloquently created masterpiece was the spa option we indulged in before coming back to colombo. It was a coffee based scrub and massage for the price of one, a special offer during this season. I know that this pandemic has made us wish 2020 never happened but if you are like me and need to feel hope again and rejuvenate yourself and pray that this too will pass... then.. take that leap.. take your loved one and enjoy a romantic weekend at 98 Acres to get your mind off these troubled times.
