We stayed one night in Jetwing Kaduruketha as we were not able to find any nice place to stay in Ella. The setting of the hotel was really good, the staff was really friendly and try their best to make visitors comfortable.
Accommodations were like separate huts or villas, they had provided nets for beds to protect from insects. They had provided 2 bicycles to us also.
The rooms didn't have airconditioning only a ceiling fan, the issue which we face was they had a net in one part of the ceiling of the villa, they could have easily closed that net, as plenty of insects came through that net and disturbs us all the night.
The main door of the villa had a gap between the floor, and any reptile can creep in, we got 2 lizards through that gap in our room and our kids were really disturbed.

The village-like location was good, the food served was fine on top of that friendliness of staff really impressed us.

We spent in this hotel for couple of days with family and the experience was wonderful.
First of all, the reception was a great experience which we felt the warmth of the staff. The butler who has been assigned to our services has carefully serviced to our needs looking after all our needs throughout the stay.
The rooms were very clean and nicely located such that it gets closely blended with the nature. Even though the rooms are not provided with air conditioning, the constant cold blow over the large paddy fields keeps the rooms in a very conformable temperature.
Hotel offers morning and night bird watching, where you have a choice to use a guide or you could do your own tracking. The views from the rooms and the pool are amazing specially during early morning.
Should specially thank the Indika for the great service offered to us.
We enjoyed the stay and thank you all the staff at the hotel.

Room tip: I guess the rooms with he paddy field view gives more panoramic view.

This was truly one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I've ever stayed. Incredibly impressed with the commitment to sustainable eco-tourism through things like locally sourced produce (including their own home grown rice) in the restaurant, and the notable lack of plastic and single use items. It helps me to breathe better when all of these things have been woven into the fabric of a hotel. It's not so much a hotel as it is a retreat; a place to restore the soul.

A highlight of ours was joining local wildlife expert Ishanda Senevirathna on the night Safari and looking for the famous "peeping frogs" of Nuwara Eliya. He's an amazing source of knowledge and great fun as a guide!

We were up early to climb Little Adam's Peak nearby (a must visit!) such that we'd missed the breakfast cut off, but the staff were fantastically accommodating. They rolled out what I'd say was one of the best meals of our life of typical Sri Lankan hoppers, daal, sambal, fruits, coffees ... It was incredible. They even accommodated by making it vegan for me.

I'll never forget how special our stay was. Thank you to all of the staff for your hospitality!

A unique place, if you enjoy the nature and tranquility. Surrounded by paddy fields and jungle and a stream and in close proximity to less-well known archeological sites Buduruvagala (supposed to be the second tallest buddha statue), Dematamal Viharaya, Maligavila buddhist monastic complex and Yudaganava buddhist temple, Yala & Udawalawe safari parks and 'Ella' the new tourist destination, Kaduruketha is an excellent central place to explore the area. The hotel is beautifully located. Rooms are spacious and provided with all amenities. The staff, from the GM to restaurant staff, pool attendants are efficient, helpful and knowledgeable. Food quality and the presentation were excellent. We were pleased to see many European families with kids in the hotel despite the travel warnings given by those countries. For them it would have been an unforgettable experience.

Room tip: Specifically ask for a room with a wide verandah.
