Traveling as a family of four, we picked this location because we wanted to stay at a place that was not a large hotel with many rooms. The place is not visible from from the road and a bit of a bumpy ride in, adding to the secluded charm. The grounds were finely manicured and the lobby was airy with... More

The Elephant Corridor might have been great 5 years ago, given its beautiful grounds, but since it opened the maintenance has been dreadful. First of all there is NO WIFI but on the lobby and even there it comes and goes. There is a "new" Manager (he told us he had been there for 6 months only) but he hasn't... More

We stayed at the Elephant Corridor Hotel 6 nights end of December 2014 and it was by far the best part of our trip through Sri Lanka. The hotel grounds are outstanding and set amongst a natural park with exotic wildlife and a beatiful view of Sigiriya rock from the restaurant terrace. The bungalows are very spacious and the general... More

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
