Virgin Holidays View
In a breathtaking location, surrounded by 27 acres of tropical splendour, you’ll really feel you’ve escaped the madding crowds at the Chaaya Village Habarana. Abundant wildlife and exotic flora and fauna set the scene, with excellent dining options, a tri-level swimming pool and sports facilities adding to the appeal. Low-rise village-style dwellings with thatched roofs are scattered throughout the grounds, with 4-star luxuries ensuring every home comfort is met. Upgrade to a deluxe room and you’ll enjoy wonderful views of the lake as well as a few added extras! You can watch the chefs at work in the open kitchen of the El Hana Restaurant, preparing sumptuous local dishes for you to sample as well as more international fare. The lounge bar overlooks the pool and is the perfect place to enjoy an award-winning cocktail whilst admiring nature. Sports facilities include badminton, tennis and volleyball – there’s even a cricket pitch if you can gather a team together! Many world-renowned archaeological sites are close and, if you’re a birdwatcher, you’re in luck, with over 138 species to look out for. Alternatively, hire yourself a bike and cycle your way along various trails, each one taking you through villages and landscapes untouched by time.
