Chena Huts by Uga Escapes

Beach, jungle and wildlife

In the south of Sri Lanka you will find rustic farming villages, lush tea plantations and one of the best known natural reserves in Asia. Yala National Park sits on the south east tip of the islands and is home to countless species of wildlife. People have farmed here for centuries in the small jungle clearings known as chenas. It is from this aspect of Sri Lanka's vast culture and history that Chena Huts takes its name. Nestled among the trees at the ocean's edge, this intimate boutique hotel is the perfect jungle haven in which to retreat and truly be closer to nature. Its location on the edge of the National Park means that spotting wildlife from your private terrace is pretty much a daily occurrence.
