Nestled on the banks of the Kirindi Oya River, Ella Jungle Resort is surrounded by wild jungles, bubbling mountain streams, abundant flora and fauna and, of course, Tarzan’s animal friends. It’s the perfect setting for the many adventure activities provided at the resort. Or simply a place to be still and merge with the nature.
The word ‘ella’ means waterfall and at our resort there are many. The famous Ella Gap is just a few kms away as are many other destinations. Built with locally available recyclable material, we are in perfect harmony with the surroundings.Read More...
