Very nice atmosphere!”
We stayed for one night but i wish it could be longer. Very welcoming place with helpfull staff, good decorated rooms. It is inside the nature, there is also a small lake in front. When we wake up we saw too many blue butterflies in front of our cottage. It was a very nice experience.

Best described as an eco lodge with absolutely fantastic service that totally elevates the experience. Don’t miss a tour of the organic garden or an early morning bird watching excursion. The food was great, but really what set it apart from other places we stayed was that everybody we met seemed to genuinely like their job and care about our overall experience.

Welcoming & peaceful stay!”
We spent 4 nights at The Other Corner and really enjoyed our stay. All the staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and the location was wonderfully peaceful with abundant wildlife. The hotel is right next to the lake which provides a pleasant walk into the town (keep an eye out for the fishing eagles on route) although after dark you'd probably want to get a tuk tuk to access the town. The breakfasts were lovely and very substantial (I'm afraid we couldn't do them justice) with a basket of toast, rolls and cake, fruit plate, hoppers and fresh juice. The hotel is accessed from the road by a rope bridge which provides an atmospheric welcome (particularly when the monkeys are in the vicinity). There's a lovely organic garden you can wander round where we met the very friendly gardener who kindly showed us round and offered us some fruit from the trees. The room was immaculate with plenty of room and a pleasant verandah. All in all a lovely stay!

Stayed three nights”
The staff were fantastic, the rooms were spacious and watching the sun come up on the veranda was very peaceful and a great way to start the day. A great way to end the day was tasting the chefs fresh cook meals then move onto a cold drink with your feet getting a fish foot spa. Would stay again, and recommend to others. Tranquility is the order of the day here,

Wonderful small eco-resort”
The high point of this resort is their enthusiastic naturalist, Dhilip. His knowledge of the local fauna, especially the birds, is only surpassed by his obvious love of sharing that knowledge. The rooms were ample, though ours was much too dark and not quite as clean as it could be. Further, a little better maintenance wouldn't hurt. The staff, on the other hand, were top notch and the food was excellent. We really liked this place and the birding.

Location, staff & cottage comfort... And swimming pool!
Just great with very attentive staff, cosy cottages, delicious food, pretty pool and a complementary 2 hour morning bird watching tour with Dhilip. What more can you ask for? ...an improvised cooking lesson on how to prepare a delightful banana flower curry. It is situated near a reservoir (lake). The staff has been fantastic, from management through the kitchen, service, up to the naturalist Dhilip.

Great place to stay, close to the game reserve and just at the back of the hotel is the lake with thousands of water lilies around which they do elephant rides. Beautiful birds, butterflies and amazingly dedicated staff. Book it!

Loved this place!”
Service, peaceful location, large rooms
I loved this place!! It setting is beautiful surrounded by trees and close to the lake with bird viewing platforms outside your chalet and the lake right on the doorstep. The service is the best experienced anywhere. We arrived at 5pm and told the staff we planned to go on a safari in the morning. He advised we were more likely to see elephants in the evening. When we asked to arrange a vehicle it was there in minutes and whisked us off to the best elephant viewing ever! We did not even have to enter the national park. Did not realise that no alcohol was served, but a staff member offered to go into town for me to get me a beer. Nothing was too much trouble. Food good. Great place to stay!

Excellent stay in this hidden gem - highly recommend ”
We have just completed a wonderful two night stay in the lovely ‘Other Corner’ and would highly recommend it to others, and would stay again in the future. The cute little cabin met all our needs, despite being a little dark, but the wildlife around us was the true joy. The gardens the cabins are set in are idyllic and the early morning nature trail we did with the onsite Naturalist was a true highlight. Be sure to take advantage of this complimentary offer from Dillip who is hugely knowledgable. The rest of the staff were so friendly and informative and really helped with our site-seeing plans.

Eco-tourism at its best”
Wonderful welcome, very comfortable accommodation, great ambiance. It is rustic, set in the jungle very near to the lake. The resident naturalist and ornithologist is excellent and his bird safari is highly recommended. Nearby Ritigala archeological site is lovely too, smaller with far fewer people than places like Sigiriya. All in all I can not recommend this place highly enough.

What a fantastic place”
Everyone was extremely polite and helpful. The food was excellent (no buffet, freshly prepared) and the waiters were very attentive and funny. During a walk in their own fruit and vegetable garden we met the gardener, who let us try different fruit and showed us around. Also they have a naturalist who took us for a walk in the morning and spotted many birds. The resort is full of animals you see and hear, so be prepared to have a small gecko or two in your room during the night. For us this made the experience even better! We would definitely choose this hotel again.

Natural Paradise, off-season stay”
The little resort is a nicely maintained paradise with ecological background. It consists of several high level bungalows in a large garden, which are cleaned twice a day and give you a homely jungle feeling. There are many animals (wild monkeys, birds, lizards, peacocks, chickens, etc...) and the casual elefant (once a year (,-)) coming by in front of your terrace or the cool pool and you could stay there alone for 2 weeks without getting bored. The cooks are doing an awesome job in preparing 3-star cuisine with the home-grown vegetables and try always to give you new insights in the local plants and how to cook them. Its also very interesting to visit the friendly gardener and let him show you herbs and plants, which are on your plate in the evening. Best food on our three weeks journey through Sri Lanka for a very low price if I consider the level. But there are many more things to do. The local Naturalist Dhilip De Alwis will take you on an early morning stroll with bird watching in the area around the near lake. We saw many species (Hawk-Eagle, Sea-Hawk, Oriole, Kingfisher....) Just check out his photographs on National Geographic to get a first impression. The manager is also very helpful in organising trips to the National Parks (e.g. Elephants in Minneriya) or to the historical sites of the Cultural Triangle for a reasonable price. One member of the staff, Kushan, was doing Tuktuk-tours with us to Dambulla and Pidurangala Rock (Skip Sigiriya and climb Pidurangala if you are physically fit enough, much better!). He was very helpful and friendly and it was always nice to have him around. Thank you very much for an awesome stay! Johanna & Florian

We had two nights at the Other Corner and found it comfortable and clean. The rooms were scattered around the lovely tropical gardens and we felt like we were on safari, which was nice. The food was good and the staff were helpful. We enjoyed the nature walk with the resident naturalist. A little pricey for what was on offer.

Absolutely wonderful!”
Staff, chalet/grounds, food
We stayed at The Other Corner for three nights. The staff are warm, attentive and will help you with anything you need. The managers Erik and Jeffrey are super friendly and helpful and really made our stay, helping us with transfers to the cultural sites and to the airport, they even took us to the hotel's farm to meet with the gardener and pick our own vegetables for our last dinner! Dilipe the on site naturalist (and comedian!) was incredibly fascinating and took us on a nature work around the grounds and surrounding area showing us the varying birdlife of peacocks, hawk eagles and many beautifully coloured others! The grounds have a lovely nature feel whilst being perfectly maintained with lots of different trees (and monkeys!) and plants and little tree houses dotted around with a lovely swimming pool. The chalet we stayed in was immaculate and spacious. The environment is wonderfully relaxing, we used it as a base to travel to Sigiriya and Dambulla (both a must see!) but would have happily just stayed at The Other Corner the whole time as it is so lovely! We also used the hotel's jeep for a safari at the nearby eco-park. We had previously visited Uda Walawe and preferred the eco-park as it felt more natural and less busier. We were lucky to spend a long time on our own watching a herd of elephants. The food was great. The traditional Sri Lankan rice and curry was one of the best we had on our trip (and we had alot!!) the breakfasts in the morning are excellent. The restaurant service staff are polite, attentive and efficient, which was a bonus as we found that service can be quite ‘laid back’ in Sri Lanka!!! Thank you to all at The Other Corner for ending our holiday in the perfect way! We highly recommend this hotel! It was the perfect conclusion to an amazing holiday in this beautiful country.

Individual lodges in the middle of a tropical garden, staff very nice and helpful, relaxing and romantic atmosphere
We had a great time at the other corner. The staff was very helpful, the lodge was comfortable and cosy. The garden is beautiful and very close to the lake where it is possible to ride elephants (if you like that). The swimming pool is also very clean. In addition, a special dinner was organized for the new year eve: two musicians were playing and singing during a nice barbecue. They also prepared a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast. Just perfect!
