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.
