I am Chena Huts by Uga Escapes. I call the Yala Jungle, on the southeast side of Sri Lanka, my home. Connected by timber walkways through the foliage, I will accommodate you in one of my 14 luxurious private cabins spread carefully spread throughout the grounds. Only 20 minutes from Yala National Park I am the perfect spot to be both close to the ocean and to the wildlife. I am the spirit of safari: wild, raw and free.



Join one or both of my complimentary game drives, offered in the early morning and in the late afternoon. Drive the red clay roads through the lush foliage of Yala National Park to spot some wild elephants or even the elusive leopard.

Feel free to ask one my courteous staff members to take you on a tour around the property. It is possible to spot some wildlife at the lagoon near the hotel such as elephants, buffalo, crocodiles or even baby turtles (if it’s that time of the year!)

Only an hour drive away is the famous city of Kataragama, which attracts 1000s of people every year especially during the holy festivities. This city is sacred to Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims and the indigenous Vedda people.



If you have been traveling for a while, then you will appreciate that this hotel offers each six items of clothing laundered each day of stay.

Thanks to the wooden walkways throughout the property, the hotel can be navigated by wheelchair and there is one accessible room.

If that is not enough, this hotel is as green as its surroundings and sources its produce fresh from local farmers daily, which explains the delicious cuisine.


Huts start around $761 USD. This is an all-inclusive rate that comes with morning & evening game drives; breakfast, lunch & dinner at the delicious onsite Basses Restaurant; tea, coffee, water, fruit juices & other soft drinks as well as selected wines, beer & spirits.



Expect fine dining by candle light while listening to the waves crash in the distance. Expect phenomenal customer service and delicious cuisine. Expect entertaining game drives to Yala National Park. Expect to fall in love with this remote location, this jungle paradise.



Spacious climate controlled cabin. En-suite bathroom with stunning bathtub. Shaded outdoor deck with built in 5m plunge pool. Free mini- bar (replenished daily). Comfortable king size bed.
