98 Acres Resort & Spa

Ella | Superior

Built on (not coincidentally) 98 acres of historic tea estate with mind-blowing views across waves of emerald Ceylon tea towards Little Adam’s Peak, the 98 Acres Resort & Spa features just a handful of luxury thatched villas, built from sustainable local resources and scattered unobtrusively over the hillside.

Each room has a private living area, an en-suite bathroom with stone-clad hot and cold shower, and its own private verandah or balcony, ideal for lingering over breakfast and soaking in the views. Rooms are striking, sparsely decorated using natural materials ranging from warm stone to reclaimed timber, softened with comfortable seating, large beds and, in three of the deluxe rooms, splendid open-air over-sized stone bath tubs.

An elegant restaurant, which - like everywhere on the premises - benefits from superb views - serves carefully selected Sri Lankan, Continental and Asian dishes, with a few signature tea-infused specialities just to give a flavour of your location. Bar 98, built using reclaimed railway sleepers, is cosy and comfortable, with an extensive wine list, a range of cocktails and, of course, fine teas.

On-site facilities are not overwhelming but more than compensated for by the superb surroundings. There’s a lap pool for adults and a baby pool for the little ones, with relaxing spa treatments - all using tea grown on the estate. Guests who prefer to arrive in style can make use of the estate’s private helipad.
