When we were planning our visit to Sri Lanka we immediatly noticed that TOC was the place where we wanted to stay in order to explore the cultural triangle of Sri Lanka. We are a family with 2 kids (13 and 10) loving to stay as close as possible with the local culture and nature. Since this accomodation was not... More

We stayed at The Other Corner for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was a great base for visits to Sigiriya, Dambulla and the surrounding area and is set in a beautiful and incredibly tranquil location. The food and service were terrific and the rooms lovely, albeit a bit dark. Our one criticism we had was that it... More

The first night we arrived very late after a long flight and drive and we were shown to our little fuss and left to get some much needed sleep. Our room was a... More

We really enjoyed this place. It is a great setting - right next to nature. The villas are like safari lodges and comfortable with everything you need. In my opinion though, they need to be cleaned a little more thoroughly and a little more on going repair would keep the bathroom for example in better condition. I loved the surrounding... More

With their sincere commitment to maintaining a cohesive relationship with the environment, aided by the laid back atmosphere, fed by the edible landscaping within the encampment and all of this held together by the tranquil location makes this de facto choice for the ornithologist, the naturalist and the nature and wildlife...

The setting is absolutely gorgeous and the tree houses are great fun but also surprisingly luxurious. The food was terrific and - although they do... More

Great stay at The Other Corner. Rooms are very clean, well maintained, secure and modern. The place has a African safari feel to it with some luxury features. Surrounded by Habarana Lake and the great wildlife that goes with it. Staff are helpful and friendly.

A lovely surprise stopover in the heart of nature, a birder's paradise with on site naturalist Dhilip a huge asset, with his infectious enthusiasm for ornithology. Cosy spacious bungalows and great food. Highly recommended.
