Heard about Elephant Corridor from friends and then went to stay there. It was truly a rewarding experience. Not everyone can afford to stay there as it is a bit expensive but worth staying. This boutique hotel is located inside the real bush. Apart from the hotel area, the rest are real jungle. From the restaurant, it has a panoramic view of the Sigiriya, Kandalama hills and vast nature.
Though we were an elderly couple but were given the Romantique suite. The room had a plunge pool inside. Very nice suite with sitting place, verandah and a lovely view. The bathroom is a wonderful place. Very cosy room. I enjoyed having very cold plunge in the pool in my privacy.
We don;t know how we passed two wonderful days together. Time just flew. There were complimentary foot massage at the spa centre which was Ok. A nice pool area where we enjoyed some drinks while a family was having nice time in the pool. Away from all crowds, we could relax in the wild nature and walked on the walkways.
The hotel is eco friendly and does not allow any vehicle to come inside. From the parking lot, a golf vehicle brings the guests inside the hotel. The reception area is in a wide open place and the way they welcomed us is truly memorable. The Manager took great care of us, the staff were very friendly and was always ready to help us. Truly a great place to relax. But those who want to see crowds, loud music, menicured gardens throughout the hotel, this is not for them. It is for those people who want to stay in very quiet place away from all city life amenities.
