Upon arrival into the small car park you're greeted with a funky bridge to get into the grounds which open up into a large area. There are a number of cabins which are nicely spaced out and also some rooms on stilts. A few tree houses are also in the grounds along with a swimming pool. All of the garden...

Great place to stay. This was our first accommodation on our Sri Lanka trip. The resort is built in a jungle like garden. We had a tree bungalow, which was spacious and well appointed. The restaurant served very good food for breakfast and dinner. They have a little organic farm attached to the resort, from where the vegetable for the...

Setting is wonderful, with rooms in many structures spread out among trees. Staff was caring and helpful. The resident naturalist, Dhilip, leads very informative bird-watching walks by the nearby lake. The butterflies are amazing. The nearby village, Habarana, seems to have no attractive restaurants, so we ate all meals at the resort -- food was pretty good, albeit a bit...

Wonderful spot! Unfortunately, we were only there 1 night after a long flight in, so didn't get to experience the resort fully, but will definitely be going back! The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff incredibly helpful and friendly, and the food was gorgeous! We arrived quite late, so they provided sandwiches and fruit in the room for us...

This is my second visit to The Other Corner and spent three nights there this time. It is a beautiful hideaway with separate cabins that offer a great deal of space and comfort. My cabin had not only a big tub but an outdoor shower which was lovely. The front porch was a great place to seat and while the...

What a beautiful, peaceful place. Everyone was so friendly and attentive. We stayed for three nights and found it such a relaxing place to return to after a busy day sightseeing. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We would definitely stay here when we visit Sri Lanka again.

First impressions-WOW!!- we were just blown away by the serene setting and location of this place. The manger and staff were very welcoming and although we arrived mid morning they gave us a temporary room to rest and relax till our room became available. The room was spacious and had a very natural feel to it. They have their own...

The Other Corner is nestled right in amongst the trees. The wooden huts are a really good size and beautifully designed and decorated. Be prepared to hear lots of wildlife and to wear mosquito repellent! It's a really cool spot with amazingly friendly staff. Breakfast is lovely, fresh fruits, juice, tea/coffee, breads and choice of eggs. It's a little bit...

Stayed here for two nights as part of an organised tour. As 2 couples we had a large 'treehouse' with 2 large double rooms (rooms 1 & 2), 1 or 2 extra beds, ensuite shower rooms and a large shared balcony with swing chair, table and comfy chairs. Our only major complaint was that we had no hot water in...
