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...

This is a very good place. I Visited this place with children & they enjoyed every moment. Food was great & the back area of land has a very good view. We booked as full board double but they brought even full plates for our children & that proved they really want to satisfy customers. well done guys.

From the moment you enter via the suspension bridge you know you're somewhere special. Beautiful spacious rustic bungalows can't rate higher than the wonderful service and delicious food. Wish we were able to stay longer than 2 nights. Slight concern with the over chlorinated swimming pool. We all just had to close our eyes when swimming underwater.

First of all let's clarify some questions that might pop up before visiting Sri Lanka with kids around for the first time! Eco Lodge means that the owners of the accomodation have officially gave up the fight against keeping the nature off the doors... When choosing a place to spend your vacation be aware that Mother Nature is powerful, and...
