Where Adventure & Tranquility Meet

Ella Jungle Resort is surrounded by pristine jungles, bubbling mountain springs and gushing streams. Abundant with a variety of flora and fauna, Ella is nestled on the banks of Kirindi Oya River which meanders through Uva Province.

Ella is the perfect setting for the many adventure activities provided or a place to be still and merge with the surrounding nature.

National Honour. International Acclaim.

Ella Jungle Resort won the Sri Lanka Tourism Award in 2011 for Best Host Hotel – Adventure Sport. Built with locally available recyclable material, we are in perfect harmony with the surroundings. You’ll enjoy the satisfaction of being part of nature.

The word Ella means waterfall and there are many. It’s a unique 150 acre jungle location with an atmosphere of silence and spaciousness. The world-famous Ella Gap is just few kms drive as are many other unique destinations.

But Ella Gap is not the only ‘gap’ provided at Ella. Ella Jungle Resort offers the gap between thoughts … just by being here. We strongly believe that a holiday should be not just for the mind and body – but also for the spirit.

A Fabulous Natural Setting

This is the perfect place to just be. To listen to the silence. To experience the the splendour of Mother nature. Fall a sleep in a tent listening to the soothing sounds of the jungle. Sit by the river. Feel the space. Fill your mind/soul with Here and Now.see.more.2

Challenging Adventure Activities

When in dangerous situations, the mind stops. We provide many such situations through our wide range of adventure activities. Do things you have never done before and experience the wonderful moments of Here and Now that come when the mind has no place to go … or space to function. see.more.2

Music, Yoga & Meditation

Music, yoga and meditation all help still the mind. Hugh Jackman said “Meditation is all about the pursuit of nothingness. It’s a quieting of the mind. It sharpens everything, especially your appreciation of your surroundings. It keeps life fresh”. see.more.2
