I stayed 3 nights at Chaaya Blu, as part of a 18 day tour of Sri Lanka. We arrived early at the resort as the overnight sleeper train got us into Trinco at around 6.30am. Amazingly, we were given the keys to our room at 9am, which was really fantastic and greatly appreciated, as was the upgrade to a beach... More

The hotel is really nice. They welcomed us with a juice and a wet towel, that was really nice. The pool is really nice with a beach just steps away. The staff is professional. The breakfast is something you should try! I personally didn't like the food at "the crab" restaurant, the food took a lot of time and wasn't... More

Stayed with our family of 7 for 2 nights. Had nice rooms on the ground floor near the pool. The service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Buffet had good selection and our children loved it. Particularly impressed with the 'Sports Manager' Rook , who organised a Sri Lanka V Australia cricket match with us one afternoon. This... More

We visited there beginning of June with high hopes of relaxing and fun. I will begin with the location of the hotel which is quite good. The beach is well maintained and the lobby has quite the view. Ah! the rooms... Well, the balcony room (No.419 I think) we got was weird. The bathroom was much better than the room... More

The hotel staff service was pathetic as it took us around 2 hours to check-in only. Moreover, there was a long delay in response time for all the in-room requests also. The food was also not suitable for the whole group's taste buds (beside being too expensive) and we had to travel outside of the hotel to have our lunch... More

Beachfront accommodation in the true sense! Simple, minimalistic, semi-luxurious property.... Warmth & enthusiasm missing from the team. Please take note of guest requests - I've been to Bali for my honeymoon and they ensured satisfaction to our taste. Here, even for a group of more than 4 couples, we didn't get even 1 convincing Indian meal across 4 nights stay... More

My wife and me stayed in this hotel from 16 June to 18 June 2015. We had a good time there. Rooms are quiet and with all necessary amenities. Place is very clean. Food is of good quality and a selection of both local and internation fares. Wi Fi worked wonderfully throught the compound. Above all the staff of the... More

Hi! Swedish couple from Stockholm. We were traveling around Sri Lanka in May 2015 for two weeks. Amazing country. This was our third stop after Colombo and Kandy. The hotel was very nice and services excellent. Especially the guide we had to pigeon island. He was very friendly, caring and fun. Just one thing could have been better. We had... More
