14 luxurious cabins lie dotted through the dunes, boasting shady decks and private plunge pools. A stay at Chena Huts is all inclusive and meals are enjoyed in Basses, a delightful open-air restaurant, or by a beach bonfire, or on the lake shore - nothing it too much trouble. Relaxation comes in the form of a beautiful day spa and a tree-lined swimming pool, which also boasts a magical pool bar, hidden away behind a waterfall. There is also the most glorious expanse of deserted beach washed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Blissful days here include fully guided morning and evening game drives accompanied by an expert ranger, where you will explore the Yala National Park. This is Sri Lanka’s oldest national park and home to the greatest population of leopards in the world. Other wildlife to keep your eyes peeled for includes elephants, turtles, crocodiles, and more than 200 species of birds, of which the showy and flamboyant peacock is one.
