    Our opinion

    The Elephant Corridor is a very private and luxurious suite hotel, close to nature and to the UNESCO World heritage sites. Ideal for romance.

    Hotel description

     Elephant Corridor is a unique hotel set in 200 acres of land with beautiful scenery and spectacular views of the lake and Kandalama Hills. This stunning natural setting is surrounded by jungle, teak forest and many species of wildlife. There are 21 extremely spacious suites, each with a private garden and plunge pool, and wide window views of the wilderness. Binoculars are provided in every suite. Days can be spent exploring the local area; nature walks can be enjoyed as well as horse riding and hot air balloon rides. Elephant Corridor can organise excursions including visits to Sigiriya Rock Fortress, Enderagala Forest Temple and Minneriya National Park. Many activities can also be enjoyed at the hotel. Relax by the pool in your suite or by the main swimming pool located in the jungle. Pamper yourself at the spa with an Ayurvedic treatment or massage. There are several choices for places to dine at Elephant Corridor, such as on the private garden patio of your own suite or at the glass-fronted Ambrosia restaurant, looking over the plain to Sirigiya Rock beyond. Picnics can be enjoyed on Leopard Mountain and private barbecues can also be arranged. The team of chefs create a blend of Eastern and Western à la carte cuisine at any time of day. Elephant Corridor is a luxurious hotel with a relaxing ambience.
