We really enjoyed this place. It is a great setting - right next to nature. The villas are like safari lodges and comfortable with everything you need. In my opinion though, they need to be cleaned a little more thoroughly and a little more on going repair would keep the bathroom for example in better condition. I loved the surrounding area though - a great vegetable patch to look at, lots of wildlife - squirrels, chipmunks, lizards, eagles, owls and more. The food was good too and the staff helpful but at times a little slow and disorganised - nothing major though.
There is a really nice guy Dilip (I think) who seems really knowledgable about the area and wildlife. I would have loved more time to just explore the plants and wildlife around the hotel with him . The location is great for seeing the surrounding countryside and national parks. we had fantastic trips out onto the lake and an elephant safari and trip to Sigiriya. Really a great place.

The Other Corner never fails to impress our guests. With their sincere commitment to maintaining a cohesive relationship with the environment, aided by the laid back atmosphere, fed by the edible landscaping within the encampment and all of this held together by the tranquil location makes this de facto choice for the ornithologist, the naturalist and the nature and wildlife photographer alike.

If you are considering the ideal adventure to expose your shutter to some of the most natural presentations an environment can offer you, The Other Corner would be a choice worth considering! The national parks and jungle environment are all easily accessible from this rustic yet elegant retreat. You might be interested to know this green business is owned by a nature lover and avid nature photographer.

While the above was described in relation to nature lovers and photographers, this property is ideally suited to the hard worker where a hard rest is recommended. With the sound of traffic and blaring horns clearly absent, this environment with its clean air will boost your health and help realign you with nature.

Room Tip: All chalets here are ideally located. Eric the manager would be useful if you need assistance.

We went to The Other Corner to witness the elephant gathering at Minneriya and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. eric and all of the team were very welcoming and also very knowledgable about the area. The setting is absolutely gorgeous and the tree houses are great fun but also surprisingly luxurious. The food was terrific and - although they do not serve alcohol- they are happy to bring you for a very short tuk-tuk ride to pick up supplies :)

From the Other we were very close to Minneriya and Sigiriya. We also availed of an early morning boat ride on their own grounds which was magical.

We stayed here 2 nights with our 2 children. We loved it ! Nice rooms with pilotis, comfortable beds all in nature . You can hear the noises of the peacocks at night it is really strange in a nice way, you have the feeling you are in the jungle!!
Food is really excellent ! Everybody is welcoming .
Thank you the other corner !! We were happy to choose this place.

Great stay at The Other Corner. Rooms are very clean, well maintained, secure and modern. The place has a African safari feel to it with some luxury features. Surrounded by Habarana Lake and the great wildlife that goes with it. Staff are helpful and friendly.
