“Wonderful Accommodation in Ella”
Reviewed 1 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Sunnyside Lodge is a wonderful accommodation option in Ella. It is serene and quiet but within easy walking distance of the village. There are many thoughtful additions, from bicycles to board games, plus tennis equipment that allows guests to use the tennis court. Staying here was a highlight of our visit to Sri Lanka. Add an additional night or two to your original plans. You won't regret it.

“ideal for a family”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is amazing place. You eat meals overlooking tea plantation, they have an excellent cook who was always prepared to help us. Children enjoyed his company, he showed them all the animals, they were picking eggs in a hen house. The temperature in Ella in July is very good, not very hot and we also had no rain. The owners Anjelo and Cindy were very nice, taking care of us...Thank you for everything.

“Amaizing place for the family”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We are here right now with our two kids. They have a cool mini farm with ducks, chickens and cows. They also have a play area, tennis court and mountain bikes for guests to use free of charge. We love the calm and relaxing view.

We stayed here for three days in February. The villa was spacious and tastefully decorated. Beds were very comfortable and had plenty of hot water. Ramesh cooked us some excellent meals during our stay here. Overall a great stay with amazing scenery all around.
