Ravanas Secret,


Price From : US $ 195.00


Ravana’s Secret is owned by a British couple who live on the property and provide home-cooked meals and a personalised service. Accommodation is in five self-contained apartments equipped with basic requirements. There is much to do on this fruit and vegetable estate, including bird- and butterfly- watching, trekking, mountain climbing, organic farming, vegetable and coffee picking, and even cheese-making. The property has an unusual, but equally picturesque, side view of Ella Gap. Ravana’s Secret is rented on a half-board basis.


There are three cottages – White House, Heart Lodge, and Club Cottage – situated well away from each other providing much privacy. White House and Heart Lodge consist of two self-contained apartments each and the Club Cottage has one. Apartments are spacious and have a bedroom with dressing room and ensuite bathroom with h/w shower, and a sitting area with a fire place opening on to a private balcony with garden or mountain views. Rooms have twin or double antique-style four-poster beds fitted with mosquito netting. Table fans are available upon request. A/c is not required in this region. Each apartment can sleep two guests.

White House: Situated closer to the main entrance to the property, White House has two apartments on the same floor with a shared central dining area, where meals are served for all the guests.

Heart Lodge: The two-storey Heart Lodge has one apartment on the ground floor and the other on the first floor, both with private balconies which have spectacular side views of the Ella Gap.

Club Cottage: There is one spacious apartment in the Club Cottage which has a balcony with mountain views.

Sri Lankan and western food is on offer, prepared with fresh herbs and vegetables from the estate. Western meals are cooked by the owner himself. He also makes cheese and is happy to share the experience with guests. Their jungle lunches have gained quite a popularity amongst guests – meals are served in different locations both inside and outside, depending on the weather. Wi-Fi and a telephone are available. Ravana’s Secret offers guided treks and birding trails, including to ‘Cashew Cliff’, which sits at one edge of the 102 acres and has a sheer drop with views over distant valleys and hills. There is also a series of magnificent waterfalls a 20 minute walk away, which are private for guests as they are only accessible through the property. It is possible to swim in a large pool at the foot of a 50ft-high fall.

Ravana’s Secret is a simple guesthouse set on the 100 acre Pearl Bank Estate on the Ravana Ella clifftop, a remote location accessed via a winding 30 minute uphill from the main road. 3,000ft above sea level, this is the point at which the Ravana Waterfall begins to cascade. The roadway to the estate is rustic and winding, best attempted in a van or a jeep.
