Situated within Sri Lanka’s second largest nature reserve, Chena Huts by Uga Escapes offers a secluded, luxurious wilderness escape deep in the heart of Yala amidst the kaleidoscope of Flora and Fauna on its door step.
The term chena refers to a small farm clearing within the jungle. Farmers used to painstakingly clear and cultivate this small piece of land, often sleeping next to it to protect it and monitor its progress. Uga Escapes applied this concept in spirit to their Chena Huts, which become a guest’s cocoon of tranquility and relaxation. Each hut is well equipped with the latest facilities and amenities within an eco-friendly design that merges with the surrounding landscape.
Guests can partake in stunning private dining excursions or enjoy the finest a la carte experience at the Basses restaurant, named after the nearby reefs, visit the national park nearby or simply rejuvenate at the spa on site. The hotel also offers beach frontage making it one of the few hotels in Sri Lanka to offer a jungle and beach setting. Visitors can take a dip in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean and admire the sunset or sunrise every day.
