We stayed at 98 Acres for two nights. Amazing place! Hughe room with huge bed (probably 3 meters wide) and a huge bathroom. I also really loved that this place is so ecofriendly, everything is made out of wood and rock. The view from the room is perfect, looking over to Little Adams peak and all the other green mountains... More

We stopped for a quick drink at this hotel on our way back from Little Adams Peak. Good service, drinks were reasonably priced and the views were incredible! The resort looks beautiful and I would love to stay here for longer in the future.

We arrived in torrential rain! Fantastic location, amazing balconies with wonderful views and very helpful and attentive staff. However rooms were very disappointing as they are so dark. Lighting does not enhance the room to create a good ambience. I was disappointed that smoking was only discouraged and not prohibited. The room our friends had smelt of smoke! Breakfast was... More

We absolutely loved our stay at 98 Acres. Our suite was so clean, and the views were out of this world. Although we only stayed one night, we were still able to enjoy a quick hike from the hotel to the 9 Arches, followed by a delicious breakfast overlooking little Adam's Peak. The staff was very nice and our stay... More

Its a resort situated amid tea garden. The wooden chalets are an experience of its own. The beauty of the room and ambiance of the place is worth experiencing and very relaxing. the freshness of early morning amid tea garden is rejuvenating.

This is the most expensive place to stay Ella with good reason. It has fantastic views in a prime location. What you are paying for is massive land 98 acres of course with only 25 rooms set in separate groups of 2 or 4. No clouds at breakfast just pleasant amount of people in a really lovely restaurant.
