Hill Safari Eco Lodge Ohiya
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 May 2016

This place is a great find! They have nice rooms, with hot showers and good water pressure. We stayed in the separate room one level down from the main building. The room had a fabulous view!
We took a tuktuk at 5:30 in the morning to visit Horton Plains and walked back to hill safari from there. We were given a short cut which led through tea plantations where we were greeted by the ladies working in the fields. The breakfast was packed for us so we could eat it at World's End. The dinners were very nice as well and included a lovely dessert. This is a great place to go off the beaten track for a few days. We really liked the fact that there is no WiFi available.

We arrived in the station of Ohiya, from where a tuk tuk drove us along a crazy road to Hill Safari Eco Lodge.

The guesthouse is situated in between the mountains and tea plantations.
It's such a silent and beautiful spot!

The room was superb: extra large bed and beautiful bathroom, with a spectacular view of the valley below.

Eomal and his colleagues are great hosts and provided us detailed information about our train journey to Ohiya and our trip to Horton Plains NP.

Recommended place!

The staff was very friendly and warm. Mr. Gamini and the Food & Beverages Manager gave us a warm welcome..The friendliness of the staff and the way they treated us made me want to go back there. Felt like a home stay..The rooms were very clean..The beds were so comfortable and didn't expect such quality. Good value for money.

Room Tip: Try the outside luxury rooms with a great veiw

We stayed two nights at the lodge in the upstairs room which provided a spectacular view of the valley below which can also be enjoyed from the shower as it has huge windows. We couldn't get a tuk tuk to the lodge because of the Tamil new year public holiday when everyone was on holiday. A kind local assisted us and got the train station attendant to call the lodge and arrange for us to be picked up. The staff at the lodge are outstanding in their constant effort to provide excellent service. Collectively they cook delicious meals which are served in a neat and tidy dining area and they are ever ready to attend to your every need without hesitation. Breakfast was prepared at 6:30am for us on the morning we went to Hatten plains and we had a lovely hot lunch prepared when we returned.
The lodge is in a remote area so there is no reception but the staff used the lodge landline to call and confirm our next accommodation.
We would definitely recommend a stay at Hill Safari Eco Lodge.

We really enjoyed our stay at the lodge which was made by the food (lots and really tasty), the staff ( really friendly, genuine, helpful and knowledgeable) and the view/balcony from our room (we were in the upper, luxury room) .

It is a great location for a trip to Horton plains.
