We stayed at the Ella Jungle in with amazing secluded rooms in a totally private jungle setting. Views are spectacular. We did a day of adventure activities with our 3 kids and had a great time with zip lines, jumps into rock pools, rock slides all on a clean and beautiful environment. The staff all were helpfull, attentive and friendly.

We stayed at Ella Jungle Inn for three days and we did enjoy our stay.

The place is quite a stretch from Ella centre which is not a problem as long as you are aware of this. We stayed in a relatively big cabin with balcony, which was located a few hundred meters from the reception area, in what felt and actually was – the jungle. The views were fantastic!

Still, we felt a bit isolated in our cabin. On our arrival we were not given any information about the place, nor the activities that the hotel (surely) offered. This was a shame, considering this place's great potential. That being said, when asked, the staff was very helpful (I was sick during parts of my stay and was given a lot of help to get prescriptions from a doctor)

Another drawback was the tidiness of the place. Off course, one cannot expect sterile cleanness when you're in the jungle, but gecko faeces (?) in the tub and a bat roommate puts you off a bit..

The food was good :)

Many thanks for selecting "ELLA JUNGLE INN" to spend your holiday. But very sorry to hear that you'll had an additional room mate (a Bat ) This happens in a Jungle when you have the doors opened. However, if you had called the "Room Service" they would have send the fellow off and cleaned it once again to your complete satisfaction.
{Please do visit us again, when you next arrive in Sri Lanka.

Geat experiece in a tree house, room quite Spacious and comfortable, Great veiw.
Food took awhile to arrive, but made fresh. You wont be dissapointed if you stick with local sri Lankan cuisine.
If into adventure, well worth doing wild holidays adventure tours offered trough Jungle inn.

This hotel is beautiful made, middle in the jungle! Very peaceful, very relaxing.... But to come by the hotel is not so easy. We arrived after a drive from about 15 minutes in a 4x4, then again 15 minutes by feet over a small path down to the valley. We were surprised by the beautiful rooms in nice situated bungalows. 2 rooms par bungalow. Pity that the bathroom was shared. The diner was oké, no chose, but good from quality. The place in the jungle is amazing. Our surprise came in the morning..... There was no water, No shower, no wash, no tooth cleaning... No shaving..... No water in the toilet.... We were feeling dirty! The local management said sorry, they were friendly, they did there best. When we were leaving was there still no water. For the payment, in the lobby, after a climb from 20 minutes by feet and 15 minutes by the 4x4, were we asking for a lower price. The receptionist was calling the management in Colombo, the responsible man in Colombo was very arrogant and said that is was not his problem. We were complaining about his attitude, but he was not impressed.
On the and, after a discussion with hem from about 10 minutes was he cutting the line.
We payed the bill, not satisfied, but irritated!
The surprise cam after a half hour, the police stops us, we were arrested!!! The manager in Colombo called the police and told them that we were leaving without paying.....
We were happy that we had the bill with printed "Avoid". The police called him to ask what the problem was and he told that we were driving away and that we later came back to pay .....
This adventure was a terrible experience, nothing to say about the local personnel, but the management is .....

we came across the Ella jungle inn by chance and it turned out to be a nice surprise. The room was beautiful with a fantastic view. The shower room is made from rock and the shower is warm and powerful. The food is moderate but you get a lot for your money. We had breakfast on our balcony which was wonderful watching the sunrise. Some of the staff struggle with english but will do anything to help and make your stay comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask to see all available rooms as we got an upgrade for free as they were not full.

Amazing experience in the sri lanka jungle.
Our house was a little bit to close from the road, but if the noise is not a problem for you, it's just incredible. And we were very well served, with a delicious meal and the breakfast was great.
The team of the hotel is just nice !

Room Tip: Better to choose the room in the forest, but there are for 2 or 3 max.
