Zion View Green Retreat, Ella

In the midst of the velvety green mountains of Ella, 210-KM from Colombo, lies a cosy bed and breakfast, lapping up views of the idyllic Ella Gap: ‘Zion View’.

Best Known For

Hugging the mountainside, bedrooms at ‘Zion View’ - each opening out to a private balcony with hammock where guests can laze and tune into birdsong and countryside colours - are spread across 3 levels. Each accommodation at this snug little hotel gently gazes over some of Ella’s storied attractions; Ella Gap, Little Ravana Falls or Ella Rock.

The Experience

The top and middle levels carry 3 bedrooms each whilst the lower level contains 4 bedrooms, all of which offer twin or double beds, fans and wood-trimmed en-suite bathrooms with solar-power hot showers. Located further uphill from the main building, the family bungalow, equipped with 2 doubled beds, is designed to accommodate up to 4 guests. Tucked amid a garden, the mountain-view apartment features private outdoor sit-outs and 2 bedrooms.

The scenic restaurant at ‘Zion View’ serves up home-cooked Sri Lankan clay-pot classics and customized kids’ meals. The lounge features cosy seating areas while the children’s play area is appointed with swings, hammocks and toys. After a day of trekking or rock-climbing, guests can check-in to the guest house’s Ayurveda therapy room for a relaxing massage. ‘Zion View’ also organizes airport transfers and trekking tours.

Around and About

From ramble-the-countryside holidays, to climb-the-high-hill vacays; the hillside haven of Ella attracts both the dreamer escapist and the thrill-seeking mountaineer. Pause and take in the moment at Dunhinda, Diyaluma or Ravana Ella Falls and conquer the scenic paths of Ella Rock or Little Adam’s Peak. Witness nostalgic colonial architecture at the Demodara Nine Arche Bridge.

First wave of birdsong nibbles at the edge of stillness. Ah, the peace of the wee hours of this morning in Ella
