98 Acres

Rural immersion at a unique boutique resort located in Ella
EllaHill Country· 24 Rooms · £££

Serene villas in a spectacular setting

Built on a 98-acre tea estate, this cocoon of rustic comfort and luxury promises a tranquil retreat for your holiday in Sri Lanka.

Perched dramatically on the edge of a hill with stunning views of Little Adam’s Peak and surrounding countryside, 98 Acres is a resort with heart and soul in the laid-back village of Ella. With sustainability at its heart, the charming villas have all been built from recyclable materials and feature traditional thatched roofs. Bar 98 stocks an extensive wine list and the bar tenders are happy to rustle up some speciality Ceylon tea, cocktails and mocktails.

Guests can enjoy working out in the gym, spa treatments using tea and other herbs grown on the estate, and a refreshing dip in the pool, all whilst admiring the views. Another unique feature of this resort is the private helipad - imagine flying straight from the international airport to this beautiful retreat, there's nothing like arriving in style!

Most guests like to do the short trek to nearby “Little Adam’s Peak”, and visit the famous nine-arched Demodara railway bridge. Other activities whilst visiting Ella include the popular cooking class at Ella Spice Garden, birdwatching (bring your binoculars, there are many species here), a tea study tour on the estate grounds, and even archery with the resort’s own instructor.
