Fantastic staff who take you to a secluded waterfall. This place is an experience. I have returned to the same villa for the third time in 2018. Spend at least 2 nights in the Jungle. Due an increase in visitors they breakfast menu now caters to a more Western palate which is a

This review is very balanced in our view having stayed for 4 nights. The team led by Tharindu went out of their way to do everything they could to ensure we had a wonderful stay. As a carnivore who enjoys a glass of wine with dinner I may have decided to look elsewhere had the

Train takes about 10hrs, the best way to get to the resort is by tuk tuk.

Hi Laurie It is about 20 minutes from the station. So maybe tuk tuk would be the cheapest. We had a driver for that part of our trip which was great too! Be clear on which Ella resort you are going to as there are two. Reiterate Jungle resort. It is a beautiful place, enjoy! We did the waterfall walk which was incredible and had an amazing swim in the mountains which made the walk absolutely worth while! Samantha

AC not available in the rooms but air cooler will provided for the Eco Jungle chalets, not sure for the other categories. Private wash room is there for the highest category rooms-Eco Jungle chalets. We booked the Eco Jungle chalets which having those facilities, and rooms were clean and wel spacious. Food is the worst... no variety. same dishes will served for several meals. Before do the reservations, you can ask for your diet conditions and you better directly contact hotel without Colombo Reservation team.

"All rooms have river views"
"Higher floors have less stairs"
"Definitely don’t get a ground floor room"
"Get an UPSTAIRS ROOM. Shared bath units are better units."
