Ultimate Nature & Extraordinary Adventure

  • Type: ECO lodges
  • Setting: Beach, Safari, Wilderness, Jungle

Surrounded by unspoilt wilderness, Chena Huts is well off the beaten track, lying at the end of a road that connects you with the Ruhuna National Park, known as Yala. Sri Lanka's second largest national park is a mere five-minute drive away, the richest in biodiversity, boasting 44 different resident mammal species and one of the highest leopard population densities in the world. To intensify the wilderness experience, this small exclusive on spacious seven acre property accommodates only fourteen luxurious cabins offering all-inclusive service, fine views of the surrounding wilderness and seascape. Nestled among dunes and trees at the ocean's edge, you will find Chena Huts overlooking a beach where sea-turtles come to lay eggs by moonlight and elephants wander down from the nearby forest to play in the surf. You will glimpse a range of Sri Lankan wildlife during your daily game drives, from the majestic Asian elephant to the island's world-renowned leopards. The team of Chena Huts will assist you in all activities to the fullest, from daily morning and evening safaris into Yala which are included in your stay, to Sri Lankan cooking lessons, destination dining and visits to Udawalawe & Bundala National Parks, bush walks and excursions to other parts of Sri Lanka. Impeccable service and attentive staff will make your stay extraordinary and most memorable. 

Uga Chena Huts has won the 3rd place from Best Boutique Luxury Hotel – Travelers’ choice best of the best awards 2020.

susiebabes1523, United Kingdom - March 2020

We have just left the Chena Huts in Yala after a 2 night stay, as part of a wider tour of Sri Lanka. We were looking forward to staying here as the reviews had all been fantastic, and our experience didn’t disappoint. We managed to go out on a safari drive the evening we arrived which was good as the rest of the drives were cancelled because of concerns over corona virus.

Incredible Honeymoon at Chena Huts

Louise, - March 2020

My husband and I stayed at chena huts for 3 nights and we could not fault it. The accommodation is spectacular, the food is great and service is impeccable. The staff go above and beyond to make sure you have the most incredible stay. Special thanks to Johnny, our game driver who was so knowledgeable and made each safari so enjoyable. It really is the perfect balance of luxury and adventure. We would go back in a heartbeat.
