98 Acres

A luxury eco resort with once-in-a-lifetime views

Perched atop a tea estate and shrouded in mist, 98 Acres is a unique boutique hotel offering a touch of luxury in the middle of Ella’s tea country. Pretty chalets constructed of recycled materials and thatched roofs blend well with the surrounding landscape, and some of the most enviable views in Sri Lanka.

Each room features natural granite, with wooden floors and modern amenities – but the true luxury of 98 Acres are the private balconies which look out over stunning scenery. Equally, the semi-open restaurant boasts amazing views to accompany your meals, and poolside you can unwind in a relaxing garden setting.

One of the best-kept secrets in Sri Lanka, Ella enjoys a cool climate and fabulous countryside. Tea estates are dotted between lush forest and striking ridgelines, and it’s the perfect place to explore on foot or by bicycle. Nine Arch Bridge and Little Adam’s Peak are close by, or you could visit an ancient temple or tea factory.

Everybody said it was wonderful.......

Wargrave, United Kingdom

We weren't disappointed. Whoever we told we were going to Sri Lanka, they all said you must go to 98 Acres. So we did. Ella is truly breath taking - the views are stunning. We stayed for 3 nights and it was delightful. Surrounded by tea plantations, mountains, far reaching views - it's a dream. Our room was beautifully thought out, we had a lovely balcony, plenty of room and a large bathroom. I'm not a particular fan of open topped bathrooms but we coped. the room was spotlessly clean. This was probably one of the nicest places that we ate in. The restaurant was great, delicious freshly prepared food, a wine list, plenty of choice. The breakfast was extensive and the staff were absolutely delightful. The pool area was nicely presented with cushions on the beds and plenty of towels. Owing to the altitude, the pool water was refreshingly cool. Nine arch bridge is a 20 minute walk away and Little Adam's Peak is very close by too. In fact, you look onto it from your room. There is also a zip wire minutes away. Ella town is a 5 minute tuktuk ride away. Wifi wasn't brilliant as it kept dropping out. I would definitely revisit this hotel in a heartbeat.
