About this listing Waking up to the sound of a waterfall in the background makes Thilak's is a perfect spot to bunk down in Ella. The price is for a double room with attached bathroom. There are two doubles and a triple room available. The Space Thilak’s offers three comfy double rooms, each with a private entrance and an attached bathroom with hot water. The rooms face the waterfalls and, with the windows open, you can hear the water fall in the distance. Amidst vegetable and rice plantations and surrounded by Coconut, avocado and banana trees, the place has a very rural feel to it. Vehicles can park some 20 metres away. Interaction with Guests We were welcomed with tea and biscuits by Thilak, a retired army officer who lives in separate spaces on the premises, together with his wife...About this listing Waking up to the sound of a waterfall in the background makes Thilak's is a perfect spot to bunk down in Ella.

Amidst vegetable and rice plantations and surrounded by Coconut, avocado and banana trees, the place has a very rural feel to it. Vehicles can park some 20 metres away. Interaction with Guests We were welcomed with tea and biscuits by Thilak, a retired army officer who lives in separate spaces on the premises, together with his wife and two kids who are - curiously - both called Nadeesha. The family built the house with a loan from the bank and run it together. Things are going pretty well so far. Upon request they happily arrange food, transport and tours in the area. The Neighborhood When you hear Sri Lankans speak about Ella, it sounds as if they're talking about some icy alpine base camp high up in the clouds. 'It's freezing there', they say. 'Bring warm clothes', they say. But don't worry: although this might be one of the few places in the country where a hot shower is justified, Ella is a very nice place to cool off after a week on Sri Lanka's beaches. Thilak’s is located right in front of Ravana Falls. There’s a shortcut to Ella Rock on the premises., while Ella town and the railways station are about a mile away.More

I stayed here for 3 nights in a nice spacious and clean room with views to die for. As in most of Sri Lanka insects could be a pain but I found putting the fan on helped to disperse them. Breakfast was plentiful and varied...More
