I travel in Sri Lanka every year and stay at mostly 5* hotels. Chaya Blu is the best beach hotel and one of the best hotels overall. The beach is fantastic and has character because of the nearby fishing village. The rooms are super, food is great, and yes they do serve pork! The staff are friendly. The WiFi works... More

The service was awesome, the rooms were beautiful, the breakfast was really good, the view was gorgeous, the pool was clean and refreshing, the sea was amazing. Breakfast was included or we wouldnt have purchased food because it was quite spendy! It was very romantic, with a sea view/patio. I have nothing but compliments for this place! The only "heads...

A wonderful hotel for a relaxing beach stay. Beach chalets (ground floor) are perfect - 2 person day bed on the verandah and you can step straight out onto the beach - sea views are beautiful. Beach chalet rooms are large, comfortable and well equipped - quirky decor but grew to like it. Wifi excellent. Restaurant meals were very good... More

It is a good beach hotel, but the rooms are a bit worn out. The beach is also nice but not excellent compared to 10 km northern nihaveli.

Thank you for sharing your experience of your recent stay at Chaaya Blu. It was unfortunate that the seaweed washes up on the beach a few times a year. However we continuously remove it for the convenience of our guests. Attention will be paid to better our service to meet expectations. Hoping to see you in the near future. More
