To get to The Other Corner from the parking area, one crosses a small suspension bridge across a river. The transports you into another world of traditional styled mud walled bungalows with thatched roofs. The balance of comfort to rustic is perfect. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms nice with great hot water. Breakfast or dinner is in the... More

We had a great 4 days here. The staff were very professional and helpful and Eric does an amazing job as manager. Dilip was very knowledgeable about the birds, animals and flora around the hotel. The kitchen and waiting staff were superb and did a fantastic job. Loved the pool and peace and quiet of the surrounds

We began our family vacation to Sri Lanka with The Other Corner. Right from the small wooden bridge at the entrance this property strikes you with its uniqueness. It is located in a forest like environment with the cottages matched to blend in the same. Mind you not to expect a 4-5 star resort like experience but a serene forest... More

We had a few concerns before going to The Other Corner as we were staying there for 2 weeks. All other reviews were from people staying 2 or 3 days. However, everything was perfect from the time we arrived until we left. We had a tree house and spent some time each day sitting looking at the wildlife in the... More

We spent 3 nights at The Other Corner and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. From crossing the suspension bridge to get onto the actual property to our first sight of the quirky chalets we had a good feeling about the place and we were not disappointed. Our 9 year old thought it was the coolest place to stay as there were... More

We stayed just one night but wished it could be more. The hotel with eco theme village type chalets and pool surrounded by nuture were most beautiful. We felt we were in a jungle type village but with luxarious facilities. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the short stay very much and the rain that evening made more cooler &... More

What a wonderful place to stay, the eco theme and little chalets were really comfortable loved the beautiful welcome and the food was great too.We saw elephants and lots of wildlife. The lake is lovely in the morning and evening with lots of birds. The naturalist at the chalets knows all their names and is very good!! Highly recomended.

We stayed here for two nights. We were two couples and had a double unit on stilts. The rooms and outside elevated terrace area were very nice. I would say it had a real "wow" factor Staff were excellent, only too willing to help. The location is very good for the central area. We found the food was not up... More
