We travelled to the Elephant Corridor Hotel in February 2015 and stayed their for two nights - the grounds and views are outstanding with the abundant wildlife outside of the room and Sigiriya rock in the background. The restaurant is a set menu with a couple of options with waiter service which was quite a nice change from the usual... More

Definitely one of the nicest experience ever. We came from a Wilpattu National Park safari after a long drive and found a perfect place with a very nice service. It starts with a beautiful view of Sigiriya Lion's Rock from the lobby. All the rooms are isolated. Our room was very clean and very big, with a glass wall giving... More

Well, this must have been a lovely place once, but now it is tired and unloved! The only saving grace is the staff ( as in 99.9% of hotel staff in Sri Lanka) who were gracious, friendly and professional. The surrounding fauna and flora is wonderful and a ornithologists' paradise. The pool is about a mile away from the main... More

The setting is fantastic. We have stayed here a couple of times now and always found the place to be well maintained. Rooms are very spacious and offer all the necessary essentials. Pool suite is lovely for couples, but deluxe suite best for families. The plunge pool overlooking the jungle is wonderful. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Spa is... More

We must confirm the terrible experiences reported by some of previous travelers. The place could be very nice, and the original location well designed. But the site shows an absolutely poor management and organization: any stupid request seems to be a mission impossible for the personnel, even if you see dozens of them, apparently walking around doing nothing. No care... More

Stayed for only one night, close to Sigiriya which this hotel had a beautiful view of. Greeted kindly at the entrance, lobby was beautiful! Staff was great and very accommodating, ask them to tour the grounds - they're very knowledgable about the local wildlife and have amazing eyes! Stayed in the Presidential Villa - room & bathroom were very clean,... More

I read a lot of poor reviews from guests who had complained about insects. You need to check where you're going before you go. The hotel is spread across a large area of nature & wild, so expect insects, lizards & other tiny creatures, all throughout the year, but specially during the monsoon. We stayed amidst torrential rain, which was... More
