LOCATION Sigiriya

Introduction

Elephant Corridor derives its name from the fact that the property is located on an authentic elephant corridor between the Minneriya National Park and the Sigiriya National Park, which is used as an access route by these majestic animals as they travel from one park to the next. It is an extremely high end boutique property from which the spectacular rock face of Sigiriya can be seen and elephants are known to venture as close as the property’s lobby. The drive from the airport will take approximately three to four hours.

Overview

Elephant Corridor is an eco friendly resort which is carefully spread out over an extensive acreage, with minimum damage to the natural setting. The resort’s rooms and public areas are sporadically placed giving a feel of it being a little village unto itself, and if you find walking long distances tiring there are bicycles and electro cars. It is a profoundly environmental resort, with many birds, butterflies and animals calling the hotel gardens home. As you meander along its verdant paths the quiet call of morning birds or the evening chirp of a million crickets will soothe even the weariest of souls.

Accommodation

The 21 suites at Elephant Corridor are scattered all over the grounds and feature every modern convenience as well a sense of calm. Each suite features a plunge pool, expansive bathroom with sky light, Italian tiles, German light fixtures, Egyptian cotton sheets and a single hard carved granite wall.
