The spirit of Chena Huts
Nestled among dunes and trees at the ocean’s edge, you will find Chena Huts. Overlooking a beach where sea-turtles come to lay eggs by moonlight and elephants wander down from the nearby jungle to play in the surf. Chena Huts is fringed on one landward side by the tropical jungle and on the other by a saline lake where ibises, painted storks and even flamingos may be seen, wading in the shallows. For guests at Chena Huts, easy access to these natural wonders involves no compromise with comfort or good taste. At this small, select property, the ‘huts’ are in fact luxurious detached, private pavilions offering fine views of the surrounding wilderness and seascape. To intensify the wilderness experience, this spacious seven acre property accommodates only fourteen guest cabins. Exteriors, featuring design cues from the vernacular architecture of the region, are designed to harmonize with the jungle environment; interiors gently emphasize the ‘safari’ theme, with log furniture, African-style and rustic motifs that belie the ultra-modern comfort and convenience within.
Guests enjoy fine dining at the Basses restaurant and sip cocktails at the Bar. Should you wish to take your meals under the stars or by the beach near a bonfire these options are also available. With a captivating beach front and an enchanting lagoon bordering the property, Chena Huts, has plenty of unique locations to dine in private. A swimming pool and other amenities for recreation are available. Yet one need to take only a short walk in any direction to find oneself surrounded by unspoilt nature, and find a place to invoke its spirit and calm one’s own. Being one of the most luxurious spa resorts in Sri Lanka, you can get away from it all and indulge in a truly unique wellness retreat. Setting the ideal atmosphere in which to experience the ancient healing powers of Ayurvedha or rejuvenating beauty treatments that are more than skin deep.
