Experience the beauty and serenity of Sri Lanka’s scenic hill country within the luxurious comforts of a boutique hotel par excellence sitting in a very scenic 98 acre tea estate.
This uniquely designed resort blends well with nature, and consists of charming chalets mostly made of recyclable substance. Discarded railway sleepers are put to good use in the making of decks and walls at the resort. Rough, hewn granite lend simple elegance to the floors of chalets adorned with thatched roofs of ‘Illuk’ straw that adds to their rustic beauty. The exquisite country side, breathtaking views and exciting nature trails will assure you of a memorable holiday at one of the most breathtaking in Sri Lanka.
The resort is made up of several beautifully crafted chalets tucked within the leveled landscape of the plantation.
There are a variety of rooms here, from standard rooms, superior, deluxe and suites. The rooms at 98 Acres Resort and Spa are all bright and cheery, with stunning views of the Ella Gap and Small Adam’s Peak Mountain and designed with modern amenities that set it apart from the rest of the hotels Ella has to offer. Guests can relax and enjoy the views of the Ella mountain range from the private balconies. You can relax in a chair or sit at a table turned out by craftsmen using recycled timber from discarded railway sleepers. The bathrooms are finished in rubble stone and include a separate traditional stone shower with hot and cold water.
There is a lovely restaurant and bar here at 98 Acres.
