An excellent hotel with individual suites, we stayed in one of the lower level new ones which are great. However this does mean you have to negotiate the steps (or wait for the buggy to take you) to enjoy the facilities - this meant though the pool looked great with astonishing views we never actually used it! Recommend going down...

Me and my wife stayed 2 nights here on our honeymoon trip. I should say, this is a place you should visit at least once. The view from the room is breathtaking. The restaurant was peaceful, not busy and the food was average. The place is nicely maintained and got friendly efficient staff. Love to visit again But, the road...

Ella is a beautiful town with some of its colonial charm still in evidence. 98 Acres maximizes the views of the green mountains and tea plantations from the lovely rooms, pool, and restaurant. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The staff are very professional and warm. The honeymoon suite is worth the extra cost.

Seldom does one stay anywhere one can describe as heavenly. 98 Acres comes close to that ideal. I was in 106 and if the near view of the surrounding hilltops was splendid the view through to mountains and plains beyond was sublime. Staff - excellent and wonderful hopper breakfasts. Egg hoppers with sambol (appa) are basically the Sri Lankan version...

If you want to try a hotel with astonishing view and nice accommodation then 98Acres resort is definitely a good choice. The rooms were fantastic, even the shower had an open view from the shower into the mountains. The restaurant was good and they even had an ok swimming pool despite that is it placed an a fairly high altitude.

The location is beautiful and it gives easy access to the walk up to little Adam's peak and also a back lane which joins up with the road half way down to the small town of Ella. (20 minutes walk to Ella). We had a huge room and bathroom with views across the hillside dropping away from the hotel cabin...

The location and ambiance of 98 Acres Resort is unbelievable. Watching sunrise or sunset from the balcony or for that matter from bed or the bathtub is awesome. One has a proximity to nature both close up and off in the distance. Little Adam's Peak is just a few steps away. The bungalows clinging to the side of the hill...

I've never experienced such a great service any where in a Sri Lankan hotel. Food they serve is heavenly delicious and all freshly prepared. A great ambiance, a lovely place to get out from the busy life and to relax. Wonderful interiors, and rooms are equipped with all necessary amenities.

This is very good. We stayed in a standard room, which has great views from the balcony. We did a bird watching tour, which also takes you past the tea plantations and a nearby village. We also visited the tea factory. The pool is surprisingly small. We did not find the evening menu very exciting - quite bland international fares...
