Hotel is at a great location with stunning shallow beach. Rooms are comfortable, nice and clean and overlooking the pool. Stayed here for one day/night. It was an amazing view from the room at night. Staff is very friendly and helpful, breakfast/dinner buffet was really good. Yummy food. Will return soon for a longer stay!

It was a nice stay..We arrived earlier than the normal check-in time, but we got the room in 15 minutes. Food is nice, but could do better. Service is excellent and staff is friendly and keen to help. Sea is nice but you can't do snorkeling in the sea which is in front of the hotel. For that you have... More

The beaches at Trincomalee are absolutely beautiful. Clean sands, azure calm waters, straight out of a picture. I think my 4 stars would go for that. The hotel concept is good. Big buffets for lunch and dinner, and decent food at the seafood restaurant on the premises. Our room was abut twenty feet from the beach and we could hear... More

This is a nice resort style property on the beach. Rooms were comfortable and clean but showing some wear and tear. Breakfast buffet was really good but could be improved by providing table service for tea and coffee (a minor issue);. Pool and pool side service was good, The hotel excursion to Pigeon Island warrants special mention including their boat... More

We just had a fantastic vacation at this hotel. Nice view, friendly/smiley/lovely staff... Everyday surrounded by lots of lovely small animals like: cats, dogs, squirrels, pigeons, crows... We just love it! Most of the staff are very friendly and efficient. Deeply impressed by one supervisor named KARUNA at the buffet restaurant. He is super nice/efficient/supportive... Definitely will stay at this... More

The hotel management and staff were going to great length to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. The hotel itself is delightful with a trendy setting by the beach, open space and views from every corner of the hotel. The pool is beautifully situated and the beach is never more than a few meters away. The service... More

Have you ever been to the Maldives? What, never? I understand, the place is amazing yet the prices area a little prohibitive. I would suggest Trincomalee in Sri Lanka as an alternative and staying at the relaxing Chaaya Blu hotel. Diving, surfing and all the things a good beach resort type hotel provide are available. I like the fact that... More

Hates this place though tourists obviously found it acceptable. For he experienced traveller it is just intensively annoying and the atmosphere was exemplified by the portly clientele wading long with plates overfilled waddling to their dinner tabs. There retro restaurants both serve little other than fish, unhelpful staff , I think they we glad. See he back of us and... More

We went to Chaaya Blu as a family. Bit of a long drive from Colombo but once you get to the hotel you just forget all the tiredness when you see the calm sea and spotless beach. Our stay was very comfortable and nothing negative mention. We had a ground floor close to the pool. There was fair crowd at... More
