We had a fantastic 3 nights at The a Elephant Corridor, the rooms are huge, with very high ceilings, beautiful views, and have luxurious decor. The spa offers a wide range of services at very reasonable princes. Tharanga runs the restaurant in a very efficient way - very helpful and friendly, and the food is excellent, with a fairly wide...

The staff at this hotel are amazing. They went out of their way to make sure we had an amazing stay. They even opened the pool bar when it was a quiet time of the week, just for us! The staff made us feel at home and genuinely cared about us. My son had his 14th birthday and they surprised... More

We had no hot water for the two nights ..luckily it was warm weather. The roof was leaking rusty water into the bathroom sink . The pillows were hard... More

Staff super helpful, and loved all the activities that were available - did some drawings on the easel provided in the room, went horse-riding on the well-kept horses (always a good sign) and enjoyed bicycling around the...

We stayed here for only one night as part of a Sri Lanka tour. We wished we had more time! The hotel is stunning. We had our own plunge pool that unfortunately couldn't make the most of due to us arriving really late at night and leaving early the next morning. It looked great though! The room was huge and...

Arrival was possible the least welcoming of all our hotels in SL, they seemed more interested in getting pre payment than actually showing any levels of hospitality. Fortunately this was only a blip and things improved. I'd forgotten that I'd booked a Romantic suite so it was a nice surprise to be told that we were in one. However it... More
