Train. See the site you mentioned, 2 trains per day each having a luxury coach (Rajadhani and Exporail) on some days. Nanu Oya is the Eliya train station.

All the best,

Crap, they DO. Exporail now says all days per week and Rajadhani 6 days per week. See www.exporail.lk and www.rajadhani.lk; of course select Nanu Oya railway station for Eliya...

Train leaves Colombo at 08:15 for Badulla and stops at NO.

All the best,

I would suggest exporail, bit expensive but worth for money. meal on board and good service. Always Train Trip is wonderful scenic experience. See the interesting comparison between exporail and rajadani express:
