“Out of this world, a unique and entrancing experience”
Reviewed January 2, 2010

We have never forgotten our three night stay at the Elephant Corridor! Our room took our breath away and the staff could not have been more professional or solicitous. We felt pampered and cared for while breathing in the wonders of the Sigirya! Don't miss this in your lifetime!!!

a truely beautiful hotel. if you need peace and quite, there is no place like elephant corridor. kids have ample activity and are kept busy all day long. after a long day they can jump into the great big pool or the mini one in the room.

the staff is great and makes your stay truelly memorable and relaxed. we loved the food. truely authentic. the BBQ they throw on request is out of this world. but you need to choose well.

total relaxation............................

We wanted to get married in Sr Lanka and chose the Elephant Corridor as we both love wildlife and elephants.
The hotel manager and staff did absolutely everything possible to make our day so very special - it was fantastic from start to finish.
Our driver, Shiral, took us to a Sari shop in Kandy [we also saw the temple] where the staff helped me to try on and select a beautiful red and gold silk sari. The material was stunning and it glowed in the sunshine. My fiance was attired by the hotel staff in a traditional white shirt and sarong with silk scarf - they even matched the trim on his clothes to my sari.
Our limo to the wedding site in the Presidential Villa was Banda the elephant who very patiently had a gentle hello with his trunk before we went up the gantry to get onto his back. I shall upload pictures....
We were proceeded by Kandyan Dancers and Drummers who were magnificant and completely entrancing in their graceful steps and whirling routines.
Arriving at the venure we had blessings sung by young girls, signing of the registry and then a lovely buddhist ceremony. The wedding cake was 3 tiers and delicious, as was the traditional Sr Lankan sweets for breakfast. To finish a lovely bottle of tattinger champagne was cracked and certainly enjoyed.
What was lovely was that it was just the two of us had come to Sri Lanka for the wedding, but all the hotel staff turned out and we were made to feel so very welcome and special for the whole day - nothing was too much trouble in fact for our entire 7 day stay. We were upgraded to the romantic suite for the rest of our time at the hotel.
The lunch and dinner menu provided for the wedding day were superb, with choices for main meals. We discussed menu options with the executive chef and were able to try typical Sri Lankan dishes [toned down for us!]I- I can recommend the hoppers, scrummy....in fact the food was consistently of high quality and the bread and pastries was particularly scrumptious! We had our evening meal on the lawn [our choice] in front of the bar...and listened to the roar of the elephants under the stars . We saw water buffalo, egrets, kites, birds of paradise, grey langour monkeys [ gorgeous but shy]...more birds than I know. It was blissful to just sit and watch the wildlife from the daybed in the garden of our room and dip into the plunge pool to cool off. We preferred the main pool in the afternoon - either a short walk or a quick golf buggy ride through the jungle path to a beautiful spot surrounded by trees [and near the monkey route] Attention here was excellent and we had tea and fruit delivered to the pool at 4pm when we were there.
My thanks go to the whole team st Elephant Corridor for making our wedding so very memorable and perfect....

We stayed here on our honeymoon for three nights.

The service we received was fantastic. We felt like we had our own space yet if we needed anything there was always someone at hand. We were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble.

We had no problems with stale bread as previous guests have mentioned. In fact the bread was warm and extremely tasty. There isn't much choice on the menu, however i found something to eat every day and i am an extremely fussy eater that doesnt eat beef or lamb. All the food we had was very nice.

Our room was great. The bed was huge!! The shower was superb. The view from our room was fantastic, and although we saw no elephants the abundance of other wildlife we saw more than made up for it.

For those who want to see elephants, there are more than enough places to see them which are reasonably priced - all a short drive away.

We stayed here for 2 nights during our honeymoon and would have to say that it was truly amazing!! The surroundings were idyllic and the room was truly beautiful! We could not believe that we were seemingly 2 of very few guests as we felt so many more should have been there to experience it! The staff were faultless in every way - they made us feel so welcome and catered for our every need!

We booked a so called "romantic suite" and it was just a nightmare. My wife and I were the only guests at the hotel. It's true that the place has it's uniqueness, but it's simply scary. The staff interrupted us in the middle of the night 3 times for stupid reasons. There was a lovely mini pool inside the suite, totally spoilt when we discovered a frog in it. We also did come across a snake on the way to the main pool which was located at a remote location. All meals were based on a set menu. Not at all worth for the amount of money spent. One would expect at least buffet meals for the cost.
