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.


At 103 square metres, each stilted, thatch-roofed cabin is neatly camouflaged amid the trees. The furnishings and fixtures retain a raw, natural aesthetic in keeping with the safari concept. Each cabin features a freestanding bathtub, twin vanity consoles and a large deck sporting a five-metre plunge pool.

The nautical-themed Basses restaurant serves elegant Sri Lankan and European cuisine in a stunning oceanfront location, overlooking a lighthouse from which it takes its name. For a special night, arrange for a unique dining experience under the stars or beside a bonfire.


An excellent range of spa treatments are available at Uga Spa. Experience the healing effects of Ayurveda, or pick from their wide range of beauty services, massages and all-in-one rituals.


Located in Yala National Park, a scenic six-hour drive from Colombo, Chena Huts sits within one of Sri Lanka's most beautiful and diverse regions. The reserve's residents include 44 different mammal species - among them the shy, spotted leopard - as well as crocodiles, turtles, flying snakes, flamingos, peacocks and hundreds of other creatures. It's also possible to sight whales and dolphins on the Great and Little Basses reefs, around three hours along the coast.
