Chena Huts
Yala National Park

Deep in the south of Sri Lanka, next to Yala National Park, lies Chena Huts, the latest addition to Uga Escape’s portfolio of luxury boutique hotels.

The property is spread over seven acres, and the fourteen luxurious detached huts offer fine views of the surrounding wilderness and seascape from private pavilions. Each of these well-equipped cabins comprises of a living room, bedroom, en suite bathroom with free-standing bath tubs, and a shaded outdoor deck with a built in plunge pool.

Guests can enjoy stylish fine dining at the tucked away Basses restaurant, and swill cocktails in the bar. Private dining in their pavilion or under the stars by the seashore or the lagoon can also be arranged.

The luxury boutique lodge is nestled amongst the dunes at the ocean’s edge, overlooking a beach where sea turtles lay their eggs by moonlight and elephants wander down to cool off in the surf. Surrounded by unspoilt wilderness, Chena Huts is ideal for wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers alike; perfectly located well off the beaten track and within close proximity to the Bundala National Park, one of Sri Lanka’s best bird watching locations and Yala National Park.

Client Testimonials

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
