For centuries, the people in Yala have cultivated small clearings in the jungle called ‘chena’. Today, between the dunes and the trees on the shore of the sea, is the Chena Huts hotel, in the purest style of the prestigious Uga Escapes chain. Bordered by one side of tropical jungle and on the other by a saline lake where you can see ibises, painted storks and even flamingos. The hotel consists of luxurious cabins that offer beautiful views of the surrounding natural and marine landscape.
In a place where the Indian Ocean meets the jungle we find the Wild Coast Tented Lodge, adjacent to the world famous Yala National Park. This spectacular camp of 28 luxury tents blends perfectly with the surrounding landscape thanks to the use of carefully selected natural materials. Guests can enjoy authentic Sri Lankan cuisine in the restaurant, as well as cocktails at sunset and outdoor picnics in the sand dunes, while watching the sunset settle in the Indian Ocean.
