My girlfriend and I had the pleasure to stay last April, and it´s been one of the most unique places we´ve stayed at when travelling the world. A calm we´ve struggled to find since. Our host, Sunil Gunarathne, a man of múltiple talents, received us with a warmth they fail to teach in Swiss hotel schools. The fact they only...

We stayed in Ella Mount Heavan hotel in the family room. Hotel has fascinating views over the hills, especially nice to be out on the balcony during the sunrise! Also visited Little Adam's peak and Demodara Nine Arch Bridge. It is possible to do both sightseeings during one hiking tour. About 7-8 km long including climbing up to Little Adam's...

Ella Jungle resort is a very nice place located in the center of the jungle. The "houses" are very nice and the room very clean. Even if it's very comfortable you are in the jungle with all the things that comes with it : animals, bugs, noises! You can go there with your family or in couple (it's very romantic)...

Don't pay the hefty amount of money per night to stay in this resort. AVOID......except the fact that it is located in the middle of wilderness, everything else about the place is horrible- the rooms, the food, the service, the facilities...the list is endless. No intercoms in the room, no hot water, no variety in food, terrible taste, poor service,...

-Location - They are promoting the cable cars but seriously its nothing much. Not even 100m long. Waited for 45mins for the cable car. -Rooms - Booked a superior room just because of the attached bathrooms. No pressure in the water lines. we had to use shared bathrooms 50m way from the room. - Rats - Rats are in the...

A true back to nature experience with a hint of luxury. A great place to switch off (literally) and reconnect with nature. The rooms are beautiful and situated directly on the river so we were able to fall asleep listening to the sounds of the jungle and running water. There are some great walks and a very pretty waterfall to...

This "resort" is in a fantastic location set in the forest with beautiful streams and the like. The vision for the place was also good but the reality falls far far short. I notice that there are also very good reviews for this place but I think that that is because of the location and nothing else. There were about...

Nice retreat !!! To be honest this is not a resort. So don't get confused. Mr Sunil is good person and taking care of things well. Nice stream near by to relax and good nature sounds. Super deluxe chalets are covered with asbestos so it becomes hot in day time. Food is vegetarian and outside world is disconnected that's good...

Nice location and landscape BUT that's all ! Service level is very poor and not aligned with all the claims of the hotel : rooms are OK, but you have to share your bathroom and toilets (at this price...), no hot water even if they claim it, food is not very good, and if you have a problem or a...
