So far this has been one of the most beautiful places I have ever been! The sweet French-Sri Lankan couple warmly welcomed me and my boyfriend in their beautiful tree house and after two lovely nights it felt already like home. They helped us with everything and made our stay in Ella very fun. If we ever come back to Sri Lanka we hope to see you again!
Beautiful place to stay in Ella with gorgeous view over the valley. The staff are super nice and couldn’t be more helpful! Great Sri Lankan breakfast. Would highly recommend staying here.
Tucked away a few kms down the hill from Ella, this room in-the-trees, run by an incredibly friendly French-Sri Lankan couple, is great fun.
Don't expect five star luxury - it's a cut your own fresh fruit rather than packaged peanuts from the minibar kind of place - but do enjoy the (curtain free) view of the morning sun filling the Ella valley.
(If that all sounds a bit Lonely Planet, my apologies... being more blunt, the shower was a bit rubbish, going hot and cold, and our mossie net was a bit of an open door policy, due to the number of rips and holes... which, to be fair, the owners replaced immediately).
The owner's brother guided us on a morning walk to Ella Rock (2,500 rp). Some reviews suggest a guide isn't necessary, and they are probably right ... but our guide added value on route and meant we could enjoy the view rather than study the map. Highly recommend this as a morning adventure and the treehouse for something a bit different.
I stayed here for one night with a friend. It was my friend's birthday gift to me, and it really was a wonderful gift! The treehouse is amazing! It has that authentic treehouse feel, but with the benefit of working plumbing and electricity. It's clean and adorably decorated. The location feels remote enough that you have quiet and are amidst nature, but it is just a quick bus ride (under 5 min) to the center of Ella town. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, and they arranged for a guide for me to hike to Ella's Rock.
