Reviewed 12 July 2017

Great spacious place with only a few bungalows, so loads of space for each. Nice bungalows with very big bed and nice bathroom. Very friendly people. Restaurant has good local food, the international food is okay. Perfect location for many sights in the area.

Room Tip: all rooms look nice from what we've seen

Loved my stay during my tour of Sri Lanka. The room was comfortable, the service was amazing, and the food served at the restaurant was spectacular. I would recommend it to everyone who is looking for a fun and relaxing stay in Sri Lanka to visit The Other Corner Resort.

This is a real hideaway in the center of Sri Lanka, close to the cultural and historic places of interest of the island. such an amazing place, with individual houses, treehouses and so on. You're staying there in a kind of jungle, or better a park! We were there in June 2017 for two nights, and we regret it was such a short time! We'd loved to stay longer in this amazing small resort, and we'll come back for sure! There are many monkeys romping around, and such a great and different world of birds.
We made a birdwatching tour with Dhilib, an experienced and friendly scientist, who works there. Don't miss joining Dhilib at his morning tour! We will never forget. By the way: We watched more than 34 kinds of exotic birds - we also saw a crocodile. More than four meters long and looking very dangerous, but in a good distance.

We loved this place because we had a magnificent walk with the naturalist from the hotel Dhilip De Alwis. He manages to tell you a lot about nature in Sri Lanka and local stories. Interesting guide! As a bird lover, this place was absolutely beautiful, you can see a lot of birds, and other animals and Dhilip told with such passion, I loved it. He is also a fantastic photographer, and I keep on following him on social media because of the beautiful pictures. Highlight of this place!!

We stayed here for 3 night on route from Colombo to Trincomalee to be centrally located to see the sights.

We loved The Other Corner, it's a little oasis which is quirky and quaint. The staff were lovely, the food was good but the ambiance of the whole place was the main plus point.

We stayed in a stilted cabin which was very comfortable.

We had an interesting nature walk around the adjoining lake with the resident naturalist which was very enjoyable.

Great location, a bit different and peaceful. A few areas were a bit faded and needed a repair (paving close to pool, shelf above sink etc) but it's rustic!

Happy to recommend
