I was a bit hesitant before visiting the Other Corner. We normally stay in small places and this was the most expensive accommodation that we booked on our trip to Sri Lanka and I was worried that it might not live up to the price. In fact the opposite was true: this is a medium size, reasonably priced hotel but... More

We loved our stay in tree-house family room. Although the room is not very spacious for four persons, it was a very comfortabel and enjoyable stay in a superior eco "resort". Elephants, lot of birds and even a mongoose very close by to see and enjoy. Breakfast and diner was very well and our children loved the swimmingpool. I would... More

We had a wonderfull stay for three nights at TOC. What a location? Our Children (and i) loved the entrance bridge as an announcement of pure adventure. Lovely swimmingpool under big trees, amazing gentile staff in the restaurant, top manager and naturalist were so kind and helpfull. Ideal startingpoint for excursions to Sigiriya, dambulla, rigalla...just top! Thank you guys!

We had a very cute cabin on stilts set in lovely natural surrounds. There was a bit of an ant issue but it's to be expected in those surrounds. Apart from the ants our room was nice, clean and very comfortable. The restaurant was a pretty standard hotel restaurant. The breakfast was quite lovely though with a different selection of... More

This was our first stop on our 17 day journey through Sri Lanka, and I really couldn't have made a better choice. We loved this place from the minute we set foot in it. We stayed 3 nights at the end of June in the family lodge. The lodge is very roomy and has a fantastic great big deck, which... More

Within easy reach of Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa, the Other Corner consists of wooden cottages containing spacious, comfortable rooms. The food is simple but excellent, made of local fresh ingredients. We were sorry we didn't have more time to stay there, as the resident naturalist Dilip seemed knowledgeable and keen to show us the abundant variety of wildlife, flora and birds.... More

The other corner is a nice forest resort where one can unwind the tensions listening to the swirling winds and chirping of birds. Located across the Habarana, the wonderful mud huts make the occupant feel that he is in another world. Well air conditioned and nicely kept rooms and toilets supplemented with excellent service and superb food. I should repeat... More

What can we say but wow, wow, wow!

We stayed 4 nights in 2 Tree Houses and loved this place. The accommodation, staff, food etc were all excellent & made for a perfect base from where you can do day trips to Annuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya & Dambulla. We had our own driver who stayed in their supplied accommodation & said it was fine. The breakfast each morning was... More
