Avoid like plague. Worst hotel ever. Rats in the rooms, exceptionally rude manager and rickety cable car to get to the property.

Amazing gem
Amazing hotel if you want to get away from it all, first car then jeep then cable car to the valley, amazing views, rice grown on site, amazingly friendly staff lovely accommodation just a bit to open for a wersterner I would have liked some glass and some walls but I throughly enjoyed my two days there and would recommend if you want to be disconnected from the world and back in touch with nature

We were on our honeymoon and had been staying in very luxury places but we fancied something different for a couple of days which would be an experience that we would remember. To get to the resort you have to get a 4x4 ride which is very bumpy (but you are going into the jungle so what do you expect!). After about 20 mins you make it to near the bottom of the valley. We were then put into a small cable car with our luggage for the final part of the trip which took 5 minutes. This was a really nice experience. At the bottom we were greeted by the manager Tharindu who was extremely friendly and accommodating. We were shown to our accommodation which was an Eco Jungle Chalet. We were very impressed with the room as to be honest we were expecting something a bit more basic. The chalet was lovely; it had a four poster bed in the middle, a tiled bathroom and a balcony looking out onto a river. The gable end of the roof is open air so you do hear all the sounds of the jungle and there are bugs (but you are in the jungle!). Bring plenty of Deet as we were still bitten by mosquitos. All the noises of the river and the crickets you could hear from outside were quite calming and I have to say we slept amazingly well. Dinner is buffet style, vegetarian and delicious! We did not miss meat whatsoever. The rice amongst other ingredients are grown in the resort. Breakfast is simple but perfectly nice. In the morning of our first day we met at 9:30am to trek to the near

Our stay at Ella Jungle was really something else, it is an unforgettable experience in a setting that feels really wild! I was a bit disappointed that they were not running the yoga or meditation so be aware these activities are not a given, however the morning trek to the waterfall for a morning swim could be the most outstanding memory from the entire holiday. It was truly stunning.
