Chena Huts by Uga Escapes, Yala

Superluxe - ££££


How does this sound – your own private luxury cabin among the sand dunes, with a deserted beach and beautiful blue lagoon nearby? If it sounds like heaven, treat yourself to a blissful stay at Chena Huts by Uga Escapes.

Located right next to the gates of the famous Yala National Park, this is the perfect spot for luxury-seeking wildlife lovers. But you may find it hard to drag yourself away from your exquisite cabin, complete with deep soaking tub and private plunge pool.

Life at Chena Huts (named after simple farmers huts) is private, peaceful and soaked in sunshine. You can walk among the sand dunes, lounge by the pool or soak up the sounds of nature from the comfort of your cabin.

But if you do want to walk on the wild side, you can join daily game drives headed up by knowledgeable expert rangers. You’ll have all the time you need to explore the island’s second largest national park and to meet its most famous residents – Sri Lankan leopards.


The 14 luxury cabins at Chena Huts by Uga Escapes are spread out across seven acres, so you’re guaranteed privacy. Inside your cabin, you’ll enjoy a spacious, climate-controlled living space, complete with en-suite bathrooms, free-standing bathtubs, mini bar, 42-inch LED TVs and shaded outdoor decks. The best part? You’ll get your own private 5m plunge pool, so you can just step out in the morning and take a dip.

You’ll love spending your evenings at the intimate open-air restaurant and bar, although the attentive staff are more than happy to arrange a romantic private dining experience just for you. During the day, you can soak up some sun at the swimming pool, or indulge in a massage at the small on-site spa.

Why we love it

Chena Huts by Uga Escapes is the ideal luxurious base camp for your adventures to Yala National Park. You’ll come back thrilled from a day of leopard-spotting and bird-watching to a cooling dip in your own personal plunge pool, before dining under the stars. Bliss.
