We stayed at 98 Acres Resort for 2 night and had a wonderful experience. The rooms are great, well designed with comfy bed facing the most spectacular view through Ella Gap. The bathroom was great too and the shower was very hot and powerful. We had dinner here both nights, although the meals were small they were an excellent quality and the chef spoke to us after our meal and offered to make whatever meals we wanted! We had carrot cakes for desert, which were fantastic. The view from the restaurant is quite spectacular and on an evening you can watch the fireflies in the surrounding trees.
The location is slightly out of Ella, we walked in one afternoon and it took about 30 minutes. However, in the evening you need to get a tuk tuk to go into the village.
The service was good, the waiters always remembered which room we were in. The TV was broken when we arrived and within 5 minutes of complaining at reception someone came to our room and fixed our problem.
The only negative point was the pool. It was very dirty and looked like it hadn't been cleaned for quite a while. I'm not sure if this was because it was low season but we still expected a clean pool to swim in.
Although quite expensive for Ella, this resort was well worth the money for the beautiful rooms, views and great service.
