Kandy and Ella - hot or mild in August?

We're traveling through the central province mid to late August. I have read so many forum threads about the climate being slightly cooler in Kandy and Ella. My question is, do I need accommodation with air con and a pool? I would not do without either in Bali or Thailand because of the combination of heat and humidity. But is it necessary in the cooler parts of SL? Is it hot or mild? How is the humidity in August in Kandy and Ella? Any feedback most appreciated :-)

Hi there,

See

tripadvisor.com/Travel-g293961-c176578/Sri-L…

For Kandy a pool is welcome, AC is doubtful; for Ella neither are useful.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

I'd want AC for Kandy.

You don't need aircon for Ella. As far as I'm aware, "98 Acres" is the only hotel with a pool in Ella. It's a nice luxury after a long trek, but not essential.
