Nine Skies

Promising far-reaching hill country views, our stylishly refurbished five-bedroom tea bungalow hotel is majestically perched on a tea-fringed hill near Ella. Dating back to the colonial era, the bungalow epitomises its legacy yet indulges discerning guests with contemporary facilities and high-end personalised service – be pampered by our butlers, feast on gourmet food and dip into a garden pool with stunning views across the valley and famous Demodera Loop.

Nine Skies Bedroom

Nine Arches is our only twin bedroom, and its pair of single beds, dressed in soft cotton duvets, is a snug retreat for sleep. Ideal for two friends travelling together or two children when their parents book an interconnecting Demodera Bedroom. The bedroom directly accesses a private furnished garden terrace and the ensuite bathroom is equipped with a rain shower and bathtub. An affordable yet luxurious room for exploring the Ella countryside.

Demodara Bedroom

We have three Demodara Bedrooms, with views into our upcountry garden, and beyond, to the tea fields and verdant south eastern mountains. These bedrooms are furnished with a king-sized bed, a cosy sitting area, private veranda and an ensuite bathroom with a bathtub. Handpicked antique furnishings and custom-made pieces marry eclectic style with contemporary comfort.Welimada is a warm, cosy bedroom bathed in light and is unique for its twin aspect valley-side and garden facing views. The private veranda gazes west, offering vistas of the working tea factory and Demodara Loop. Badulla, to the front of the bungalow, is private and indulgent, and opens directly onto the garden and swimming pool through a set of French windows. Tucked off the central hallway, Hali-Ela bears similarities to the Badulla Bedroom yet has the option of being connected with its neighbouring twin bedroom, Nine Arches, to make a Family Suite.

Ella Rock Suite

Our Suite promises privacy, indulgence and nostalgia, with a light-bathed open plan layout and French windows affording exotic garden views. Furnished with a king-sized bed and plush sofas in a separate sitting area, it has a private garden terrace and an ensuite bathroom with rain shower and bathtub. It’s perfect for couples but is also an ideal suite for families as the sitting room can be converted into a kids’ bedroom.
