This recognition is an affirmation of our continued efforts to deliver memorable holiday experiences to thousands of travellers. Since the inception of 98 Acres almost three years ago, we have managed to gain popularity as a desired destination for vacationers around the world – especially the luxury and romance seeking. More than the prestige of standing out amongst strong competition, what’s more important to us is that this recognition directly reflects the positive sentiments of the many satisfied travellers that have enjoyed what 98 Acres has to offer. Therefore, we are grateful to all our valued visitors for their recommendations and reviews on Tripadvisor that have made this recognition a reality.”

With spectacular views, the serene countryside and a unique design concept that blends well with nature, the 98 Acres Resort is a renowned retreat for adventure-craving backpackers as well as languid vacationers seeking to indulge in a luxurious holiday. The unique design of the hotel includes cosy cottages designed for perfect tranquillity and privacy. The cottages – with thatched roofs, wooden flooring and a unique shower made of natural rock – make up a perfect blend of nature and luxurious comfort.
The cool climes of the sunny Ella region set the perfect ambience for a relaxing and romantic hideaway while providing ample trekking and hiking opportunities for the adventurous. The unique position of the hotel guarantees probably the best views in the area.
“The hotel is equipped with bicycles to cater to the trekking needs of those seeking adventure and we also arrange visits to the tea factory nearby for those interested. The spa offers healing therapy that complements the therapeutic effect of the nature that surrounds. The pool that overlooks the misty mountain range is a welcome treat to the mind, body and soul.
