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.

Amazing views and pristine room. We had our own little chalet that looks out over a valley of tea fields, room was really nicely furnished and bed was comfy. Bathroom was good with hot water too. The owner Rowan was very welcoming and helpful and prepared the most delicious Sri Lankan breakfast. Perfect getaway for a couple of nights stay. A little drive out of the main town so we hired a motorbike

I spontaneously found this guesthouse and am very, very happy I did. What a perfect oasis in the hills with stunning views of the monastery and a star-filled evening sky on the balcony. The owner is so friendly and lovely ... I would return in a heartbeat.
Comfortable beds and nice hot showers. :)

Peaceful and beautiful just outside Ella. Great views and best Sri Lankan breakfast yet. Overlooked by a hill top temple and a wee chipmunk. Great we stayed here. Recommended.

This place become a present for me during my staying in Sri Lanka.

Wild Resort is located in the quiet surrounding of Ella. You will not meet see the chains of buses and three-wheelers which are not rare for Ella's Main Street. In this place you will be surrounded only by boundless tea plantations, dramatic views of green hills with barely visible farmers working on their grounds.

The hotels consists of several bricked bungalows covered by slate roof. Each bungalow is well equipped with basics things like hangover for clothes, full size mirror, has it's own bathroom and what,s is more important has a private terrace with tea plantation view. Actually tea grows right at the borders of the terrace :) You can enjoy this view sitting on a comfortable deck chair or enjoying your meal at the wooden table.

There is no A/C in the room but it's not needed as the nights in Ella are quiet cool so be sure that you have requested additional blanket to cover.

The place is operated by a friendly manager who will help you with a meal, ordering a tuk-tuk and other advices.
I can't say that the dinner in this place is amazing (I actually did it like a furry which was served to me), but you definitely should not miss your breakfast: coconut roti are delicious! If you have an early morning train trip be sure to ask to pack a breakfast to go.

Although the place is separated by thin serpantine road from the city, it's only 5 minutes by tuk tuk from train station and road to Little Adam's peack, tea factory and in, So you will not miss any activity in Ella.
The inky minus if this place is a very thin roof of the bungalow: I dint sue whether if can save a room from the rain Plus there were a lot of scrapping during the night and the next day I detected a mouse running over the roof. So you have yo be ready for such guests, it's wild resort :)

The view from my cabin was amazing! If I wasn't hiking all over the place, I was sat on my balcony taking in the view of the tea plantations, surrounding hills and monastery. The room was very cozy and comfortable and clean. The breakfast was superb and huge portions of fruit, bread, eggs, tea. Ruwan and his staff were very welcoming and helpful. Though it's a bit of distance from the center of town (only about 15 mins walk max), it was so peaceful, and the walk to town was beautiful.

We booked this hotel at a very last minute as soon as we arrived in Ella. It's a bit far from the city centre, it's better coming with a tuk-tuk but it's a very nice and relaxing place.
We stayed in the huge half of a bungalow overlooking the hills, the room and the ensuite bathroom are very big and clean, with mosquito net and very good lights.
We had an awesome night sleep and breakfast in the morning was super filling: you can choose between a western and a Sri lankan one.
We also had dinner in the evening and it turned out one of the best curries we've ever had in Sri Lanka. Highly recommend escaping from the tourist traps in the city centre!
Wifi is not the best one.
