There are some places that when you find them you just know they going to be perfect, Waterfalls Homestay, Ella is one of those places, Perfect in every way!
Set in a stunning position on a hill surrounded by jungle and overlooking the waterfall, we stayed in the Veranda room for four nights. To wake up and see the early morning sun shining across the veranda and the waterfall in the distance is just beautiful. Our room was lovely, bright and spacious, with a large comfy bed and en suit. The delicious breakfast is taken on the veranda with the other guests, usually watched over by the local troop of monkeys. The home cooked food we had for our evening meals was outstanding. A stunning selection of tasty Sri Lankan dishes always different every night followed by a (sometimes two) tasty little desert to finish.
There is so much to do while staying in Ella, made more enjoyable by Karen and Martins enthusiasm for the area. The walk to ‘little Adam’s peak’ was stunning, we also visited the fascinating hand loom factory and equally enjoyable tea factory, a walk along the railway line to the waterfall is well worth it too.
Ella is in a fantastic part of the world so clean and green and getting around is so easy, we travelled to Ella on the 6 hour train from Kandy as well as the train we used local buses and the very reliable tuk tuk driver Lanka.
Thank you, Karen and Martin for what was an absolutely terrific stay at Waterfalls. We would love to come back again one day, but if not, perhaps you would like to join us when we get our place in Italy.
Many thanks, Nigel and Kate
