Pros 1) Great Location... so close to some awesome excursions ...like sigiriya. the hotel itself is set amidst the jungle. You get a great with nature vibe. 2) They have an awesome massage spa... with various types of massages. 3) Each room has its own plunge pool... for lazing about if you are too lazy to go to larger common...

We booked this hotel after checking into our first hotel and realizing that it was simply too far away from anything to make the stay pleasant. The Elephant Corridor Hotel is located minutes away from Sigiriya, Dambulla (the market is spectacular) and close to 3 different nature reserves for elephant spotting. The hotel staff is incredibly helpful and will arrange... More

We spent two beautiful nights at this lovely hotel. The staff helped me organize a suprise birthday cake for my husband. Everyone was warm, friendly and always with a smile. We stayed at the romantic suite. The indoor plunge pool was mind blowing. We loved every minute of our stay. Definitely going back. A big thanku to mr. Dilip, wijey,... More

The hotel has very few rooms, they are very nice and original, good size with sitting area. They have a small swimming pool inside the rooms, but the water in the pool is cold... The hotel is beautiful and the service could not been better. The food was good and the prices of wines was unbeatable

Do not waste your time and money on this hotel! I wouldn't recommend it to an enemy! It's such a shame as the hotel is situated in a beautiful location but the hotel is thoroughly neglected! Food service takes for ever! Restaurant staff are rude and don't know the basics! We didn't even get water, unless it was specifically requested... More

The hotel is beautiful with a gorgeous setting and lovely villas. The service is awful. The wait for food was long. Every meal consisted of a good one and half to two hours long wait before the food arrives. Although you cannot complain about the taste, the portions are ridiculously small and hunger is a faint memory by the time... More

The first shock was demanding payment even before the welcome drink was served. I have never experienced been demanded payment on arrival which was told as the standard practice. I immediately complained to a Director of the Hotel who only profusely apologized for treating the guest like a road side thief. The first in the series of issues was the... More
