My fiancé and I stayed here for two nights during our Sri Lanka tour. What can I say? The location is stunning with spectacular views out across the forest and towards little Adams peak. The resort itself is beautiful, built with full eco credentials, and one of the most wonderful places we have stayed in. The resort is 2 km...

We stayed here during a tour of Sri Lanka and wow, what a beautiful place. We were lucky to have good weather and had fantastic views over Ella Gap and Little Adam's Peak. Our room was immaculate, very comfortable and well supplied on the hospitality tray. The restaurant had the right amount of informality, perhaps just lacking somewhere to sit...

Ate here for dinner and for a breakfast sink after visiting little Adams peak at sunrise. Excellent quality and nice setting. Good views. Wanted to stay here but no rooms left. Hotel and grounds look lovely and staff all seemed really friendly

This place must be unique with its combination of style, location and philosophy. The stone and 'thatch' rooms blend perfectly into the most beautiful location with tea growing all around you. Watch the wonderful birdlife from your balcony, drink in the view of a dreamlike valley or wander the paths and peaks of the estate, all the while remembering the...

This was the most beautiful view and location I think we have ever had from a balcony! We were so lucky to get a booking but unfortunately only for one night, we would love to have stayed longer. The pool is gorgeous and we found the food and service excellent. We got up early in the morning and walked along...

We really enjoyed scenic beauty of the location and the excellent hospitality of the resort staff. Food was also delicious. Rooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. Action should taken to prevent frogs and lizards creeping into the toilets.

Bottom line : good, but just not getting as high as the location The reasoning: this lovely hotel appears to be going through a identity crisis, yes it wants to be eco and save the planet, and thus is a bit rustic , but also wants to be luxurious. Example the shower head is in effect a simple spout, yes...

Outstandingly beautiful location. Our large room sits amongst the tea plantations overlooking the most wonderful view. Described as a deluxe room, it is spacious and comfortable but perhaps lacks some of the finer points of 5 star accommodation. Very meagre cupboard space for instance, so living out of our suitcases. This is a small price to pay though to have...

The rooms are all in chalet style buildings and ours had a wonderful view towards mountains and plains. It was quite a long walk to the restaurant or the swimming pool, up a stony and uneven slope and then a long climb up steps. The room had a big verandah. In the room there was a small kitchenette area, with...

We loved this hotel. Our superior room was gorgeous and large and immaculate, with a king bed and a large terrace overlooking the mountains. We got up early to watch the mist and clouds on the mountains disappear. Sat there for a few hours as the view was constantly changing. Just spectacular. While the food is good, the service at...
