Enjoy a trip to this favorite picturesque hill town of Sri Lanka. This beautiful spot is painted with swathes of emerald green hills, fragrant with tea plantations that are dotted with temples and pretty waterfalls. You may even catch an old steam-engine train rumbling along over a century-old, arched stone bridge! It is even possible to spy the Great Basses lighthouse shining out along the south coast. If you’re enamored of quaint hill stations, gallons of fresh air, clear open skies and star-studded heavens—then this trip is just the thing for you! Enjoy leisurely walks by the hill side, relish the delicious local cuisine, and just sit back and relax.
Nestled in the heart of Bandarawela City, 98 Acres Resort & Spa derives its unique name from the 98-acres of scenic tea estate land on which it has been built in fascinating Ella, dating back to Ceylon's colonial era.
During this half day excursion discover scenic Ravana Falls, located around 6kms south from the road between Ella to Wellawaya. According to Hindu legend, King Ravana kidnapped Princess Sita from India and hid her in the caves behind the waterfall that now form Ravana Ella Cave. The falls are best visited during monsoon, when the water swells, creating the widest fall on the island.
