Planters Bungalow

Historic hotel in Ella

Ten clicks south of Ella, this converted tea-planters' bungalow is fringed by blossoming, beautiful gardens carefully cultivated by the owners (one of whom worked in art publishing in England). Its rooms have been impeccably renovated and are filled with religious imagery, fine antiques and works of art. For families there's a suite that can accommodate up to six people.

There are also two new, very tastefully decorated apartments with kitchen and terraces with fab views.
