Surrounded by unspoilt wilderness, Chena Huts by Uga Escapes is among the top hotels in Yala. Having expertly preserved and embraced its natural surroundings, this exceptional resort brings guests closer to nature whilst maintaining the unparalleled luxury for which Uga Escapes is renowned. Hidden away from the beaten track, accessible only by a private road, boasting just fourteen exclusive retreats, the resort is infused with a safari-style ambience that is both scenic and seductive. Overlooking an inviting stretch of golden sand, where Sea Turtles nest by moonlight and elephants saunter from the nearby jungle to cool off in the surf, Chena Huts by Uga Escapes lies equidistant between a tropical jungle and large lagoon, where storks and flamingos are known to frequent. The resort’s excellent location invites guests to explore local points of interest, including ancient temples, paddy fields and two national parks, including Bundala National Park, regarded as one of Sri Lanka’s best locations for bird-watching.
The distinctive accommodation at this resort retain their naturalistic essence of ancient huts, seamlessly blended into their stunning surroundings, but each one is equipped with climate control, fine furnishings, plunge pools and luxury amenities. At this small, select property, the ‘huts’ are, in fact, luxurious, detached private pavilions offering fine views of the surrounding wilderness and seascape. Guests can also enjoy refined dining experiences at Basses Restaurant, whilst the swimming pool and spa facilities provide further luxury.
