Surrounded by unspoilt wilderness, Chena Huts is well off the beaten track, lying at the end of a specially-build road that connects with the main Tissamaharama-Yala highway a few minutes from the Yala park entrance. It is 315km from Colombo’s international airport and 26km from Tissamaharama, the nearest town. Basses restaurant is decorated to an appropriately nautical theme and features urban dining in a spectacularly setting overlooking the Indian ocean. The Bar, filled with memorabilia that illustrate the history of Yala and its environs, is the perfect venue for a post-safari drink before dinner. Chena Huts also consists of a poolside bar concealed behind a waterfall.
To intensify the wilderness experience, Chena Huts accommodates only fourteen 1130 sq ft cabins. This includes a 781 sq ft climate controlled living space. Interiors gently emphasize the ‘safari’ theme, with log furniture and rustic motifs that belie the ultra-modern comfort and convenience within. Each of these well-appointed cabins contains of a living room, bedroom, en-suite bathroom and shaded outdoor deck with built-in plunge pool. The luxurious bathrooms feature free-standing bathtubs and His and Hers vanity consoles.
Rates start at EUR 896 (Luxury Cabin) per night.
