Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very difficult to give an response to our stay because of mixed reasons. The room (602) was not very nice. It was smelly because of the rainy weather and the view to the waterfalls was blocked by trees. You will experience a long waiting time when ordering breakfast and any meal. But, but, but….. The staff are so friendly and will do anything to make you happy. This attitude deserves 5 stars.

Stayed at Serenite Ella for a week in early Dec 2023. Restaurant and almost all rooms have an unbeatable view of all the attractions in Ella, the Ella gap, Little Adam's peak, Ella Rock, and Kithal Ella. 15 min of walk to the Ella town and 9 arch bridge is also within a short ride. Nice room with a balcony that lets you see all the way to the Southern Coast of Sri Lanka on a clear day. Very helpful and friendly staff and good choice of food in the restaurant. Would certainly return when I visit Ella again

The view from our room was amazing and the staff very friendly. Unfortunately, the hotel was under renovation at the time of our stay (which we were not informed about before). Because of that there was some noise sometimes and construction material lying everywhere, but the staff explained us why this was the case so it was okay. The food was good, however, the menu card is only small and the food could get a bit boring after 2 days. But overall, we enjoyed our stay there and are considering to revisit the hotel once all renovations are finished :)

This hotel is an absolute gem. You have the most wonderful view over the landscape of the Ella Gap, you get served a tasty breakfast, the service is excellent and the rooms are great. We came while they were still doing some remodeling, but we didn’t notice it at all, and that is saying something. They are continuing to build up this beautiful hotel so when you go after me you will see an even more wonderful hotel. If you are thinking about having a hotel in Ella, I will 100% recommend it. and I have to say that the hotel owner is one of the nicest people you will meet and provides great service. Also the dinner is really good.

Extreme renovations took away from our experience. We arrived ti the beautiful Serenite Ella's only to find that the place was undergoing renovations. Loads of workers involved in the construction worked past 8pm. The noise generated from the construction took away from the serenity of the place. Shortly after arrival there was a power failure. I had booked a spa treatment and this took place in the dark, but the workers made so much noise with the renovations that I just wanted to end my massage The place has an amazing view of the train track abd Ravana Waterfalls. Food was good and ca be served in your too. Not recommended for families but more couples looking for a romantic experience. I'd would have probably rated the place higher however the renovations saw us have to walk over make shift walkways as concrete needed to set, the excessive noisiness and lack of safety measures made this a bad experience for us

Very nice little hotel with the most stunning views. Our room was just renovated and was very nice. The terrace and the views are definitely the best ever. Nice food for dinner! Very friendly staff and owner. Please take good care of nature surrounding you. 🙏
