Secluded in a quaint plantation in the Hill Country, Ellerton is a charming boutique hotel set half an hour south of Kandy. Painstakingly refurbished by owners Richard and Cary Goode, this Edwardian-style hotel retains its colonial character replete with a grandfather’s clock, flowery linen, rugs, planters’ furniture, antiques, and paraphernalia from the British Raj era. Select from eight en-suite double bedrooms spread across the property – some of them with a large verandah and some with private balconies overlooking Alagalla mountains. Lounge in the spring-fed infinity pool with a backdrop of the verdant Mawanella mountains. Sip on local Lion Beer, and a selection of wines and spirits available through the day and night. In the open dining pavilion or the beautiful gardens, savor delicious Anglo-Sinhalese dinners featuring Wild Boar curry, Green Tea Pana Cotta, and the exalted Passion Fruit Souffle, among others. Cycle and walk around to explore the interesting neighborhood with Ben, the resident black Labrador. At 2,400 feet above sea level, enjoy sunny days and cool nights all year round.
