We spent two days here. Management is very friendly and helpful. Food was good and beer was cold. Although not needed we recommend to get a room with balcony, the view over the jungle is amazing. Don't worry about the distance to Kandy city, the walk through the hills takes you about 15 minutes and is the best way to... More

We met Rohan at Kandy train station after coordinating a scenic drive to Ella via Mr. Linton in Columbo. What impressed us most initially was Rohan's knowledge of the area, but also Sri Lankan history and facts about each of our destinations along the route. What impressed next was Rohan's excellent driving. We felt safe and secure and he did... More

Fabolous driver, excellent accomodations, awesome experience but rip-off attractions! We booked our 7 days tour with Blue Haven at the Tourist Information at Colombo Fort railway station! It was an amazing experience and so was our driver and guide Rohan! Pros: Accomodation, flexibilty, comfort and of course Rohan who always had an interesting story to tell! Cons: Ridiculous high entrance... More

Having arrived in Colombo we had a rough plan on what we wanted to achieve in our ten days touring Sri Lanka. We approached Mr Linton at his office at the Colombo train station and he essentially designed an itinerary for us that met all our wishes and more at a very reasonable price. Our driver for the trip was... More

After a long flight this guest house was perfect for the first night of our holiday. Very relaxed spot and both dinner and breakfast were very good. They also organised a 5 day tour for us with one of their diver/guides Rohan. Rohan was simply an outstanding guide.He was an extremely helpful and accommodating and always had some great tips...

After having spent 15 wonderful days in Sri Lanka we are slowing getting back to reality. I have no doubt in saying that our tour of this wonderful country wouldn't have been as enjoyable if we didn't have such as good a guide as Praba! He was extremely accommodating and mindful of our needs from day one. His courteous manner... More

We have just returned after spending 8 nights on a tour of Sri Lanka with Blue Haven. I emailed earlier this year with an idea of the things we'd like to see and Mr Linton responded with a suggested itinerary and quote which was very competitive and suggested additional sites we might like to visit. We received a confirmation a... More

Hotel: Pros: We stayed in the Blue Haven hotel in Kandy. It is clean and has a great pool that the kids enjoyed. The bed is comfortable and so is the room. The staff is kind and friendly. The food is good. Cons: The water pressure is bad on the upper floors and tepid at best. Once I told them... More

Hotel Blue Haven was quite good for one night. Situated in nice nature and quiet surroundings, on the other hand quite far from the center. the waiter Chhunchu was very helpful and friendly. 4-day trip (Kandy-Nuwara Eliya-Ella-Mirissa-Galle-Colombo) with a driver Sandamal was very good, but too short (especially taking into account possible speed per hour in Sri-Lankan traffic conditions). Sandamal... More
