We stayed in this hotel for two nights whilst travelling around Sri Lanka for our honeymoon. The good points: The setting of the hotel was beautiful. The hotel offers a free nature walk which was actually a highlight for my husband of the whole holiday. The gentleman who provided the tour had some excellent stories and was very knowledgable. He...

A lovely, eco hotel, with separate bungalows set in nature. Very clean and tidy grounds with friendly staff and manager always around to help. The breakfast was delicious, always lots of food as well as the dinner. We had a BBQ one night, enough food to feed a party! The hotel respects the nature around them, which was very nice.... More

First of all, the staff at this hotel (TOC) were as good as you will find anywhere. The manager was very attentive to our every request and it was a delight to meet him. The dining room crew were outstanding and the kitchen staff were clearly very experienced, well-organised and knowledgable, so we really enjoyed our meals. The fact that... More

A very luxurious but eco conscious resort. If you are not into heat or bugs this is not the place for you as the outdoor areas can become hot and there are lots of mosquitoes due to proximity to lake. However that aside it was a beautiful setting near the jungle and elephant walkways. The bird expert Sunny was great,... More

We booked a chalet at The Other Corner because we had family that had stayed there 3 years beforehand and had nothing but good comments. This place did not disappoint. It was a wonderful little getaway from the more crowded cities. You get to see monkeys, peacocks and various kinds of birds in the morning outside of your window. The... More

Tucked away in a beautiful tranquil setting In a natural environment these lodges are a delight to stay in, alongside the lovely birds and wildlife. It's a great location for visiting sites such as Polunarruwa and Sigiriya (although I much preferred to climb Pidurangala Rock which was much quieter). The staff are very welcoming and attentive, the food is excellent... More

This is a very special place with a wonderfully managed but natural environment. It is a place to relax and enjoy the wildlife but is also perfectly placed to visit Sigiriya, and the ancient cities. On this occasion we were travelling with a very keen bird watching friend and having Dhillip, a naturalist there, who took us out on morning... More

This gorgeous property takes your breath away from the moment you cross the little wooden bridge over the stream. There are all kinds of birds and small animals in the vast variety of trees and plants. There is a naturalist on staff to take you on tours of the surrounding lake and jungles where there are occasional elephants passing through.... More

This wonderful lovely place is hidden in a nice garden, where they grow their own vegetable. After a warm welcome from Erik you find yourself in a relaxing environment, with a nice small pool. The meals are wonderful - definitly try the curry (7 different types of curry come as one meal!) which are perfecly prepared by a wonderful, nice... More

Only stayed for one night on our first night in Sri Lanka. Booked here through a travel agent so was trusting her choice along with the research we had done on Trip Advisor. Still really didn't know what to expect and were quite pleased!! It was great having our own little bungalow with very nice comfortable patio chairs to enjoy... More
