I have stayed in Ambiente already three times and I cannot think of visiting Sri Lanka without staying a few days in this location. Perfect location, even today that Ella is being destroyed by the flood of tours staying one night, and is in the process of being over-built. There can never be anything to destroy the view from the verandas of Ambiente. You can easily spend a whole day just doing nothing. Put your feet up and enjoy the view as it changes as the day progresses until the sun set. Great food, great walks, great everything. Choose one of the rooms next to the restaurant.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ambiente is a simple but clean and welcoming guest house, with nine perfectly acceptable rooms. Seven bedrooms are en suite and the other two rooms share a conveniently-located bathroom with shower, toilet and wash basin. There is also a small restaurant offering predominantly Sri lankan dishes. All rooms, and the restaurant, have balconies overlooking the hills. Activities can include: treks to nearby caves and waterfalls, or to Lipton's Seat, birdwatching with local guides, cultural tours (Dowa cave temples, Maligavila Buddhist statue, Haputale monastary, Adisham), train journeys from Ella and a visit to Horton Plains. ... more less
