Uga Chena Huts - Yala National Park - Uga Hotels, Sri Lanka

Choose Uga Chena Huts for nature and wildlife, and part of the fun will be living alongside this, albeit in luxury…

Chena Huts is usually arranged as part of a tour around Sri Lanka.

Just as an idea, 4 nights at Chena Huts, including full board and daily game/exploration drives, combined with 2 nights at the Wallawwa just outside Colombo, followed by 3 nights at Ulagalla Resort in the Culturual Triangle will start from £2,888 per person

Based on two persons travelling together, inclusive of air fare, travelling in May/ June

Description & Location

The design of the Uga Chena Huts is extravagant and luxurious, yet at the same time wonderfully authentic. They are perfectly in keeping with the nature that surrounds you. The word “hut“ is nicely tongue in cheek.

A few minutes drive away, you have the thrill of wildlife with the Yala national park adjacent. This is Sri Lanka’s oldest and 2nd largest park. Home to elephants, leopards, sloth bears and deer. Close by you have the Bandala National Park, which is one of the best places for bird-watching.

Uga Chena is located at the very southern tip of the island. 236 miles from the international airport in Colombo. It is approx 6 hours plus transfer. Most clients will combine a stay with a hotel in the “Tea Country” and/or one of the southern beach resorts.


Uga Chena Huts has  14 individual “huts”, all Junior Suite style with their own plunge pool.

The huts are extremely spacious with over 1,130 sq feet of in and out living space. The interiors resemble a top class African lodge in many ways, with Sri Lankan touches.


Uga Escapes

We are delighted to be a partner with Uga Escapes, one of the fastest growing – and certainly the most innovative – of the small luxury hotels in Sri Lanka. Currently, just five luxurious, totally unique and delightful properties, with Uga Chena Huts the last opening in the Yala National Park.

All can be easily combined, and within our Sri Lanka Chic Luxurious Touring Suggestions, we detail just a few ideas.

As all of our touring arrangements are based on a private basis, each can be individually tailored to suit your personal requirements.

Facilities and Activities

main swimming pool
main restaurant with several other individual options,
a series of eco adventure tours that can be arranged on a join in basis or privately.


Uga Chena Huts offers outstanding accommodation and a very unique “back to nature” experience.

You will have chosen to stay in the Yala area for nature and wildlife. Part of the fun will be living alongside this, albeit in luxury. You will need a sense of adventure and intrigue, even if just for a few days.

Uga Chena borders the national park and occasionally wildlife can stray into the compound and surrounds. This might include elephants, sloth bears, even occasionally the odd crocodile, so adhere to the advice from your ranger/staff.

The present traffic like system for travel introduced by the UK Government was maybe well-intentioned but has probably lead to even more confusion. So this is an attempt to clarify, in deliberately simplistic terms.
