Introduction

Hidden away from the busy Habarana main street, The Other Corner is a nature lover’s sanctuary. This nine bedroom eco-friendly village is set beside a lake and encircled by tall lush trees which attract ample bird life and numerous butterflies. The accommodation is in tree cottages, chalets and lodges scattered across the five acre estate. The lodge is built above ground so as to avoid encroaching on the natural trails the elephants walk during the dry spell, offering a magnificent bird’s-eye view of these creatures as they wend their way towards watering holes. Cool off after a day’s sightseeing in the pool and indulge in delicious local or international cuisine at the open-air restaurant.

Accommodation

The nine rooms at The Other Corner are in the form of tree cottages, chalets and the lodge. In-room facilities include a/c and overhead fans, mosquito nets, wardrobe space, mini fridge, writing desk, telephone, safe and coffee and tea making facilities.

Tree Cottages: Perched above the ground, these wooden cottages feature an outdoor deck where guests can relax whilst admiring the surrounding wildlife.

The Lodge: Made with clay and wood, the lodge houses two family rooms with attached bathrooms which have interconnecting doors and can accommodate up to 7 people. Also raised above the ground, the lodge has an extensive deck area which functions as an outdoor living or dining space and has magnificent views of the nearby lake and surrounding flora and fauna.

Chalets: Those on the ground floor are designed to resemble mud huts. They have a front and back patio, giving guests the option of private dining. The twin chalets have an interconnecting door and can operate as one unit, accommodating up to four people. An additional bed can be added for triple bookings. Bathrooms are large and modern with sunken baths and a walk-in open showers.
