I really liked this place. In the middle of nowhere, but that’s part of it’s charm. A long drive uphill to get to it, and no where near the main town/village, but such a great view. I think every room has it’s own balcony and a view over the valley, ours certainly had a great view. The view of the rising and setting sun was lovely. The food was good. We requested a Sri Lankan meal for dinner and enjoyed it. Breakfast was a little disappointing with just eggs and toast - some fruit and/or juice to go with it would have been nice. However, main complaint was that the shower was cold in the morning – think it was run off solar power hot water and an evening shower was much hotter, so shower at night! Other complaint was that the rooms aren’t particularly sound proof and one couple sitting out on their balcony late at night chatting away, their voices carried into our room until late at night and we had to politely ask them to be quiet and then it was fine. Waking up looking at the sunrise from that view was worth it though!

Stunnning views from every balcony, friendly staff, wonderful town (ella). If you can visit, do. Food not brilliant, but OK, worth going into town to Chill CAfe for great meal. Walk in and get tuk tuk back

To anyone looking for a nice hotel with an amazing view you should look no further than Sky Green Resort. Although the hotel offers little in the way of other facilities the ever changing mountain scene from the bedroom balconies and dining room more than makes up for this. The bedrooms and bathroom are a good size. Extra blankets were available - it does get cold at night! The staff are very friendly and we enjoyed a nice breakfast. Although we didn't have an evening meal, we spoke to another guest who told us they had enjoyed their meal. The hotel is outside of the town but this wasn't a problem for us since we had our guide/driver. There are lot of external steps to many of the bedroom so it may not be suitable for anyone with difficulty walking. Overall we found this hotel to be really peaceful.

We stayed here (sadly) for only one night as part of a drive around trip in the hill country of Sri Lanka. Lovely friendly staff and a nice welcome. The room was huge and very clean with amazing views of the surrounding mountains. It was a bit chilly in the evening and we requested extra blankets for the bed which was no problem at all and were given them in a few minutes. I ordered the vegetable curry for dinner and have to say it had to be the best I had in Sri Lanka especially the eggplant and pineapple curry. Breakfast was ample with the usual juice, eggs fresh fruits and toast served. We liked it here and would definately stay again if passing through. I thought noise might be an issue but by the time we went to bed it was really quiet.

Stayed here on a tour package. Great big clean room. Some rooms had obstructed views of valley but the views were great. Food was excellent. Common area is sparse. It can be a bit noisy since there are open panels at the top of the walls for airflow (no AC, but cool enough to just need a fan). Porters and workers talk into the night or you'll hear others on their balconies. Not a very good design but when it quiets down, it's very peaceful with the sounds of nature. Resort does not have a pool and is a little bit away from town center.

I am surprised at the number of mediocre reviews for this guest house. The view is amazing, the room was clean, the food was great and the staff was accommodating! I believe the cost was about 30 USD so you can't beat the cost either. Granted...no air...but you don't really need it in the mountains there. My driver and I had both dinner and breakfast, Sri Lankan style. If you are a light sleeper, use ear plugs since you can hear the dogs barking through out the night and then the call to prayer at 6:30. You can't walk to town either....or actually you could...but it would be a long hike back up! If you are staying in Ella for a night or 2...give this place a try!
