Sunnyside Lodge was built for our personal use and having really enjoyed spending our family vacations, we thought that it was best we share the joy of family with others! Hence, it is available for you to enjoy your family vacation!

Hidden away from noise and traffic and surrounded by a lush Tea plantation, fruit trees and a very natural habitat, the cool and calm natural environment at Sunnyside is only for those who would like the peace and solitude that would help a family to spend quality time together. Our objective is to help you discover how you can enjoy an effective, positive and rewarding vacation and really be together as a family at Sunnyside Lodge!.

At 'Our Nature Home on the Range', we have tried to provide you with a variety of tools to support your family vacation, including different physical activities to keep your body and mind interested. There are also many activities around the Lodge such as nature trails, water falls, tea plantations etc, where you can easily access by walking or riding (oh yes, we do have bicycles for you too!)

The Uva Province region

Uva is Sri Lanka's second least populated province, with 1,187,335 people, created in 1896. It consists of two districts: Badulla and Moneragala. The provincial capital is Badulla. Uva is bordered by Eastern, Southern and Central provinces. Its major tourist attractions are Dunhinda falls, Diyaluma Falls, Rawana Falls, the Yala National Park (lying partly in the Southern and Eastern Provinces) and Gal Oya National Park (lying partly in the Eastern Province).

The Gal Oya hills and the Central mountains are the main uplands, while the Mahaweli (Sinhalese: great-sandy) and Menik (Sinhalese: gemstone) rivers and the huge Senanayake Samudraya and Maduru Oya Reservoirs are the major waterways.


Ella is a beautiful small sleepy town on the southern edge of Sri Lanka's Hill Country. It's situated in the middle of beautiful countryside, with small vegetable plots in the valleys, tea plantations on the hill slopes and forests on the tops.

The climate throughout most of the year is typical of the high Hill Country, with a hot sun by midday, but a moderate air temperature. It will often rain in the afternoon, but only for an hour or so. A sweatshirt, or light jacket is needed at night. In December it can rain a lot and the temperature can be close to 16 degrees.

There's not much to do in Ella itself, with a handful of small shops and only a few restaurants. It's basically a nicely relaxing base for exploring the surrounding country.

Ella has a small post office and one bank (Bank of Ceylon) with an ATM.

Things to do around Ella:

* Kinnellan Tea Factory - 5 minute walk

* Little Adams Peak - 15 minute drive

* Rawana Water Falls - 15 minute drive

* Bandarawela Town - 20 minute drive

* Horton Plains and Worlds end - 1.30hr drive

* Hakkgala Botanical Gardens - 1.30hr drive

* Nuwara Eliya (Little England) - 2hr drive

* Yala National Park - 2 hr drive

* Katharagama - 2hr drive

"Fantastic place to rewind"

Very clean and comfortable homestay with serene surroundings. The food was great and the view from the dining room is spectacular. The tennis court is fantastic with a serene background and children enjoyed watching the hens and cows on the plantation. End of the visit we felt refreshed and energized.
