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

Myself and 7 friends stayed here as our first stop through Sri Lanka. We stayed for 2 nights in 5 rooms: one treehouse, two adjoining double rooms and two single rooms. The staff were amazingly accomodating - we arrived late on our first night (about 10:30pm) and some staff stayed up to prepare some food for us and to give... More

The most beautiful place. Made for nature lovers. The rooms are great, the food is delicious, and the naturalist,Dhilip,is one of a kind. Each hike with him, connects you to nature and gives you new knowledge. Absolutely a unique experience.

We stayed here for two nights. The cottages are very nice and situated in a beatifull scenery. It's a very quiet place and nature and birdlovers will feel certainly at their ease. The only remark we could have is that the service in the restaurant is not bad but can be worked on.

A authentic place for people loving nature and animals. Everybody is extremely friendly and we had the best breakfast there. The trip with Dhilip was just great and we saw beautiful birds. We recommand this place!

Stayed here for 2 nights in June. A small distance from the village, the place is quiet and peaceful. Rooms were clean, air conditioned (not necessary in my opinion) and quiet. The only odd thing about the room we stayed in was the bath/shower - whilst showering you sort of have to balance on a little peak in the bath.... More

I had a great stay at the Other Corner. The manager went out of his way to help me after my credit card was suddenly cancelled. The naturalist was an entertaining and enthusiastic guide on bird walks and a visit to Minneriya to see the elephants. The wait staff was attentive and the food was delicious. I chose to stay...

The Other Corner in Habarana met all my expectations. For nature lovers it is perfect. The gardens were lovely with many birds and butterflies plus a pool to cool down in. The accommodation had everything I needed, comfortable beds, cooling, nice bathroom and a verandah to relax on. The staff were extremely obliging, no request was too much for them.... More
