Luxury cabin with pool

A stylish safari experience in Sri Lanka's oldest natural reserve, with all-inclusive board, daily game drives and a luxury cabin with a private pool

A million miles from the concrete jungle, this escape from reality is set in Sri Lanka's oldest nature reserve. Close to the edge of a surf-lashed coastline, with untouched wilderness for miles, a stay at Chena Huts by Uga Escapes cultivates a deep appreciation for Earth's lesser-seen wonders.

But though far from the city, this five-star resort is not without modern comforts. The 14 safari-themed cabins are the epitome of comfort and style, with climate-controlled living spaces and a shaded deck that houses a plunge pool. But of course, the wildlife of Yala National Park is the real star. Track elephants, leopards, crocs and birdlife on game drives, then wind down with massages at the resort's world-class spa and fine dining at the rustic-luxe Basses restaurant, overlooking the rugged shore.
