This lodge is nestled in some of the most breathtaking scenery that I have ever come across, detached from the bustling city, it offers a place in the midst of nature right I front of a wide open canyon. It was a perfect getaway for my entire family in the large open house. However, probably the best part of the...

Lovely place far from the madding crowd. When we landed in the lodge, it was dark and we couldn't really see the beauty of the property. But the loneliness and the aura around it struck us, and we loved it. It rained very hard that night, and the pitter patter of the rain on the tin roof made up a...

A perfect house tucked away just a short walk from the Main Street of Ella and the train station. Breathtaking views. The home itself is immaculate and beautifully furnished. Views are breathtaking. The staff is extremely helpful and kind. Access to multiple activities (tennis court, bikes etc.). Will definitely stay here again!!

About the neighbourhood
Ella is a beautiful small sleepy town on the southern edge of Sri Lanka's Hill Country. It's situated in the middle of beautiful countryside, with small vegetable plots in the valleys, tea plantations on the hill slopes and forests on the tops.

The climate throughout most of the year is typical of the high Hill Country, with a hot sun by midday, but a moderate air temperature. It will often rain in the afternoon, but only for an hour or so. A sweatshirt, or light jacket is needed at night. In December it can rain a lot and the temperature can be close to 16 degrees.

There's not much to do in Ella itself, with a handful of small shops and only a few restaurants. It's basically a nicely relaxing base for exploring the surrounding country.

Ella has a small post office and o...
