It was the perfect destination for our honeymoon in April 2021 amidst of covid 19 out break. Fell in love with this fairyland soon as we entered the vicinity.With all the chaos going on staff went over and beyond to give us the best time of our lives. Location was amazing with its serene beach views and jungle vibes.Its architecture is fascinating. Bar was super awesome with the cool breeze whether its sunrise or sunset.Rooms were super clean and comfy with its all amenities including my favorite items from the mini fridge.Loved to relax in the hot tub.Even though we got the plunge pool private cabin to ourselves I loved hanging out in the common pool hence its gorgeous as hell. Food was so yummy.Enjoyed every bite of all the delicious meals. All inclusive package was awesome when it comes to having drinks ar the bar.we had a magnificent candle lit dinner by the beach with wine and freshly grilled seafood and meat. It was heavenly. Service was exceptional. Staff was highly attentive and accommodative to our all needs including doing laundry.They focused on taking care of us every possible way making us super comfy during our stay Safari tour at Yala national park was a such great value since we witnessed leopards and herds of elephants when they roam freely in their environment. Highly recommend this place to anybody who loves to relax and have an adventurous time at the same time. This is the best place for food lovers and nature lovers.Breathtaking scenic beach views are a must for Sri Lankan travellers.Great experience for your life,and I have to say “The more you stay,the more you can enjoy“

Uga Chenahuts was without a doubt the best hotel I have been to in SL and one of the best I have been to in the world (I have travelled around quite a bit). The staff were super friendly and made us feel very welcome. The food was definitely a highlight of our stay. In short, the food was delicious. The staff was kind enough to offer more food once we finished our plates, giving a similar experience to all you can eat. The room facilities were stupendous. Personally, I loved the private plunge pool and the beach view. The cabin was spacious with all amenities. The bath tub with the scenic view was an added luxury. While at our cabin, we were lucky to see a cute family of wild boar go past our entrance (It was totally safe as the cabin was elevated). We also went on a game drive which was included in the all inclusive offer. I can easily say Uga Chenahuts was once in a lifetime experience.

We stayed two nights last weekend with another family which I much say such a memorable experience. The memories collected will last a life time even for our kids. The tranquility in the middle of the jungle you experience is extra ordinary. Service by the staff was superb and a rare hotel with less staff functioning so well these days without any deficiency. The steward who servers is all most all meals was an asset to the hotel I must say Sorry I can’t exactly remember his name. Everything and everyone of us were personally looked after well. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place and even to stay another time soon if other factors permit. Simply loved our stay. Keep up the good standards. We will definitely come back.

It was a memorable experience for me and my family to stay in Uga Chena huts for two nights. The hospitality was superb with mouth watering delicious foods. The Ranger and safari was splendid. We were enlightened with the secrets of Yala wild life. The entire staff was superb that they gave tender loving care to me and my kids. Thank you Uga for the wonderful getaway you offered.

We visited Chena huts for our honeymoon and till the moment we left the location the service provided by the Chena huts was very professional friendly and dedicated. Geetha and Prasana who we met at the checking in, treated us with a big smile on their face (even though they were wearing masks and adhering to all COVID 19 rules still we felt that Sri Lankan warm welcome smile underneath the mask.) When it comes to food, it is really hard put words to the tastiness of the food and Nalin who served us at the restaurant made sure that all our needs are met. While we were going on the Safari Praneeth and Kalu made sure that we got a superb experience from a safe distance. The were few others who we really wanna appreciate is Susantha and Chabee, who serves us with a Sri Lankan warmth. Chena huts is a great place to relax and all this is possible because of the exceptional service provided by each and every member of the Chena team. We will definitely visit this place again and again because of the exceptional service.
