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

We don't want to say too much in case the special character of The Other Corner would get spoiled ....it is the combination of nature and luxury that was greatly appreciated by all of us. The naturalist, manager and the other staff made our stay special.

The Other Corner is a very nice place to relax and enjoy Nature....The Sri Lankan Food served was great and presented very well. The staff is very friendly and good service was provided although they were under staffed during the particular weekend i was staying over.

If you like nature, then this is where you'll want to spend some time. The friendliness of the staff alone is worth a stay in this jungle-like accommodation. The bathrooms need a bit of updating and more light, but it's not that big of a deal. There was a continuous line of ants on the wall in the bathroom but... More
