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...

The Other Corner (TOC) is a wonderful retreat from the larger hotel resorts that line the road from Dambulla to Habarana. Located off the main road on the 'other corner' of Habarana lake, you have to cross a wire bridge to enter the main grounds and instantly you know that you've arrived somewhere special. To call it peaceful is not...

The Other Corner offers a very different experience to most places in Sri Lanka. It is a combination of being at one with nature and doing it with comfort and style. The latter does not detract from the former; it enhances it. By being comfortable you appreciate the quiet; the flora and fauna and the animals; well may be not...

We stayed here for three nights on our tour through Sri Lanka. Very nice with great cabins in a Beautiful setting. The area is like a park, removed from the main road. The food in the restaurant was actually very good and the staff was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely go again.

We stayed at this place for two nights during our tour around Sri Lanka and we're very happy we have chosen this place. Rooms are made to look like individual little cottages you see in Sri Lankan villages from outside with all the modern facilities inside including hot water and air conditioning. Very comfortable place to stay and the garden...

The little resort is a nicely maintained paradise with ecological background. It consists of several high level bungalows in a large garden, which are cleaned twice a day and give you a homely jungle feeling. There are many animals (wild monkeys, birds, lizards, peacocks, chickens, etc...) and the casual elefant (once a year (,-)) coming by in front of your...

A secret hide-away, a few miles outside of Habarana. We had an amazing time, relaxing at the pool or enjoying the amazing fresh food. Very nice cabin, eco-style with everything we needed. Lots of privacy since it was low season and only 2 of the other bungalows were occupied. The staff was super friendly!
