Getting here

By Car/ Tuk-Tuk

Mamma Shanti is located in Kandekumbura, 40 minutes outside Ella. Here is our exact location. As we are off the beaten track, we offer our guests the comfort and convenience of having all their transport organised for them.

Our driver can pick you up from the airport (or any area of Sri Lanka) and bring you into Ella town. Here you will meet a tuk-tuk ready to bring you from Ella and down the mountain road to Mamma Shanti.

Enquire with us about tuk-tuk tours to nearby sights and scooter rental.

By Bus

For the adventurous (or broke 😉 ) backpackers you can take a bus from Ella towards Balleketuwa, hop off at 7 Mile Post and enjoy the winding road through tea farms and past Tamil temples down to Mamma Shanti.

Directions from Ella

Once you reach Ella, take Passara Road towards Balleketuwa.
When you see the turnoff to Cool Mount Resort to the left on Google Maps, this is our junction, known as 7 Mile Post. Our mountain road turn off is to the right, across the road. It looks like this:

 

 

Take this road. Pass the shed and drive down straight through the tea farms. You’ll pass a big Hindu temple on your right:

 

 

After a couple more bends you’ll pass Villa Verde on your right:

 

 

Very soon after the next bend our driveway will be to your right:
