Nine Skies, Teardrop Hotels, Ella

In this idyllic corner replete with waterfalls, landmark walks and wonderful far reaching country views, Nine Skies is majestically perched on a hillock near Ella. Another property in the Teardrop Hotels portfolio, Nine Skies has been loving restored with a bright contemporary style. This five bedroom tea bungalow epitomises the legacy of the tea planters bungalows, with its mesmerising location and sweeping panoramas.

Located in Demodera, this village is famous for its spectacular Nine Arch Railway bridge and a 360 degree loop in the track. In fact we would certainly recommend incorporating a train journey either to or from this pretty little corner of Sri Lanka.

The five luxurious bedroom suites feature period furnishing, four poster beds, bright interiors and terraces that open onto the tea fringed garden and surrounding estate. All the en-suite bathrooms have wonderful large bath tubs and butler service is provided throughout.

The dining room overlooks the pretty landscaped garden and it is here that you will take your freshly prepared gourmet meals or indeed on the open garden Veranda. Here rates are all inclusive and include alcoholic beverages as well. Just let your butler know and he will have everything freshly prepared throughout your stay.

Situated deep in the tea country in the south-eastern hill ranges Ella is a great location for exploring the great outdoors. From tea estate walks, to the local colonial era towns of Haputale and Bandarawela to swimming in pristine waterfalls and going for local walks with picnic prepared by your butler. You can also visit the nearby Finlay’s Tea Factory for an insight into an authentic working tea factory.

Nine Skies pairs very well with Yala National park and the beaches on the South East Coast of the country.
