The Nitty Gritty


• Accommodation:
Exteriors, featuring design cues from the vernacular architecture of the region, are designed to harmonize with the jungle environment; interiors gently emphasise the ‘safari’ theme, with log furniture and rustic motifs that belie the ultra-modern comfort and convenience within. Each of these well-appointed cabins offered on all inclusive basis feature a living room, bedroom, en suite bathroom and shaded outdoor deck with built-in plunge pool and an outdoor shower. The luxurious bathrooms feature free-standing bathtubs and His and Hers vanity consoles. Location:
Surrounded by unspoilt wilderness, Chena Huts is well off the beaten track, lying at the end of a purpose built 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. This is a place to get away from it all, to observe the magnificent profusion of wildlife and commune closely with nature. Getting there:
It is probably easiest to drive to Yala National Park. The drive is about 5 hours from Colombo International Airport. What to pack:
Swimwear and something comfortable for exploring the local area. Restaurants:
Taking its name from the nearby reefs and lighthouse, famed in seafaring history and lore, the Basses restaurant is decorated with a nautical theme and features urbane dining in a spectacular 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. Spa:
The resort is an idyllic sanctuary of relaxation, let the experienced therapists pamper you with a range of indulgent spa treatments and remedies to relax and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul. Signature Activities:
Enjoy a personalized safari drive followed by a sun downer cocktail in the wild.
