      Feels like an amazing tree house

      The eco lodge is so cool, it is a simple wooden building with an amazing balcony. You feel like you are in a tree house! We had some of our best sleeps there, super comfy bed, very dark and you can hear all the birds and crickets etc. Very cool! The lodge feels secluded (which we liked) but it is only a couple of minites walk uphill from Ella main street so you kind of get the best of both. If you're more of a luxury hotel person you may not like it, but if you want something different this is a great place to stay. I really recommend eating at the lodge, we had breakfast and dinner served on the balcony and all the food was delicious and it was so lovely having the view of the trees. The service was great too. The host can help you arrange activities and day trips. I recommend you make sure uou get all info you need up front. We found it a bit tricky to get the info once we had arrived because the host was not there and it turned out we had misunderstood some of the excursions we had booked. They were still good but not what we thought they were going to be.

      Abode in a tranquil, green rainforest surroundings

      I absolutely loved staying @ Arana. Not far at all from the main street/intersection of Ella town,shops,restaurants,bus stop,train station etc. 5min walk down the hill then 4mins to the end of a driveway and down stairs into a beautiful, tranquil, green rainforest setting. Wonderfully hand built bungalow, tree house style rooms situated in the trees with awesome views of the valleys, mountain and green surroundings.Quiet and peaceful with options to practice yoga, meditate in a lovely hand built hut nestled in the trees, participate in cooking classes and enjoy a delicious breakfast included each morning. Very friendly and helpful staff, happy to chat about yoga, Sri Lankan life, offering assistance with arranging tuk tuks, car transports, train, bus information, sight seeing information and activities. Anna and Sanka, the owners, were extremely accommodating, friendly, knowledgable, kind people who have created a fantastic natural environment to stay, lovely gardens, staff and a blissful energy. Highly recommend. I'll be back guys;)

      Pros: Beautifully hand built,very clean,comfortable.Bathroom with great rainforest outlook, Tasty breakfast options included.Umbrella,touch in rooms for use

      Cons: When I arrived I wasn't certain as to where to check in and walked past the reception area/desk, common area as nil signage and no an obviously seen.

      Location: Ella Rock, Little Adam'a peak, Nine Arch bridge, Ravana waterfall all very close by and accessible from accommodation as well as close to main town

      Beautiful setting. Avoid it in the rainy season.

      The setting in beautiful, and the location is excellent. However, the room was humid, damped and cold. The second night we found out that the rain enters the cabin and wets the bed. We couldn't reach the reception at night (it is a bit hard to reach in the dark). We did sleep as we could in a less humid part of the bed. The bed missed one of the sheets as well, so we had to sleep on top of the one provided (partially wet after the rain) and used the blanket as cover. It was a very unpleasant experience.

      Pros: The setting, in the jungle. Nice breakfast.

      Cons: The rooms shouldn't be offered if the conditions are not habitable, such was the case with rain entering the cabin.

      Location: It is a short walk to great restaurants and services, as well as to hikes. The location is excellent.

      Overbooked Facility

      When arriving at the location the facility was overbooked. The room we booked was not available as other people occupied it. The owner has not informed us about this but promised to do a full refund of the booking when we called him at the location to explain our misencontment. The booking was not refunded and the full cost was debited. Fortunately for us there was another room (totally different from posting) that was available and where we could stay. For a hotel provider, this is totally unacceptable, you don't overbook a place as it could put you, as a traveller, in a lot of unnecessary trouble specially in a country where English is not the main language. The follow up service in regards to this issue did not meet the expectation set by owner. Would not recommend booking.

      Cons: Service
