"The Other Corner" is the wild child of Rahula Dassenaieke, a lover of nature in his own rights and a keen photographer. Rahula came up with the concept of â€œThe Other Cornerâ€ as a place to relax with the idea of maintaining an unsullied environment for other avian and nature lovers to enjoy what is frequently termed the abundance of nature.
A family man, Rahula is also the managing director of Starron group of companies, which was founded in 1988 to cater to the demand rife at the time, and has since carved a niche for itself in the industry.
Rahula's aspiration with "The Other Corner" is that more people will come to realize the value of the natural world around us and to provide such a place as will in all probability be all too rare in the future, a place of beauty, of peace, of relaxation and an observation point in the evolution of nature.
These chalets ideally for two, built off the ground to resemble tree-house style living have a wood-finish exterior and interior and are equipped with the same amenities as the other chalets. The cottages are strategically built to blend in with the background of the un spoilt jungle, making it a birderâ€™s delight.
The latest addition to the Tree Cottages are 2 more units this time for 3 persons in each. These delightful cottages are inter connected through a stairwell from within the room which makes it fun and adventurous for families travelling together. An extra en-suite wash room is an added advantage in these unique wooden lodging.
