Nothing prepared us for the amazing view from our balcony across the valley. The hotel was beautifully kept and was in the middle of a tea plantation. We enjoyed the hotel food and the room was beautiful. There were plenty of local walks of varying difficulty and the train journey from Nuriya Ella was spectacular. Thoroughly recommend.

I really can't believe the negative reviews of this place, but I guess people have large sticks in certain places. The place was fantastic, the best in Ella. 98 Acres actually came to our rescue after an issue at another hotel. Long Story short, we wanted to book 98 acres but it was full so we booked alternate accommodations. We...

Popped in for lunch as we were already staying in Ella proper. Nice place, incredible views, but had a confusing menu. Not to mean it's hard to understand, just that the menu didn't reflect what ended up on the plates, as such. Regardless, the food was edible (but why braise a beef tenderloin) drinks were cold and the view was...

The view, the service, menu, foods, rooms everything is perfect. This is one of the best places which you don't hesitate to go again and again. Except the small insects at night, the rooms and the interior is absolutely brilliant.

If you are expecting a romantic place to relax in Ella, 98 Acres will be your first choice. You got everything to love for. The location, staff, food, rooms all are perfect. Hotel is more into the echo-rustic look. Easy Access to Mini Adms Peak. Even though the price is little bit high comparing to hotels nearby, worth it. Highly...

We were very happy with every aspect of our stay at 98 Acres. The food was particularly good and well presented. Staff were all very professional and friendly. Setting in the tea plantation is stunning. Lots of birds if you're interested. We did the walk to Ella town, but no real reason to go there as all our needs for...

Totally worth it! Big room with a beautiful view! Tap is by sensor. Got introduced to Halpe tea and the Jasmine green tea was very smooth. Luckily I found the shop in the airport and bought some. It was rather cold so we didn't use the pool. Breakfast selection was very good. The only gripe I have is I wanted...

Beautiful surroundings and perfect weather to relax and unwind. Easy access to the little Adams peak and very close to the Nine Arches bridge. Take a hike early in the morning as later and close to noon the sun can get too hot.
