The Other Corner is beautifully located near a lake. Loved all the wildlife, especially the birds. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast and dinner were good. It would be better to go out for lunch - what's available is limited. There was a bit of a mix-up with my booking, but it was sorted with no problem. I ended up staying in two different rooms, a bungalow and a tree house and liked both of them equally. As a solo female traveler I felt very safe and comfortable. I went bird watching with the naturalist, which was brilliant. Highly recommend! I also spent some time just chilling out on my veranda and saw lot's of wildlife just passing by: monkeys, birds of all descriptions and very cute squirrels. Highlight was watching a horn bill landing on the banister next to me. If you are traveling by public transport, you need a tuktuk or other transport to get to most places. Alternatively it's about a 30 mins walk to the village.
