Great Hotel on the Beach. Nicely decorated hotel, little Ibiza style. Perfect spot for daytrips in the neighbourhood. Definetly include snorkeling at pigeon island and book this in the hotel. They offer competitive rates and equipment is excellent.

This is a beautiful beach hotel with chic décor and well-kept grounds. Staff are there to wait on you hand and foot- the in house tailor even fixed a zipper on my husband's backpack! Fresh squeezed juices and cold towels were made available to guests at check in. The rooms were some of the loveliest in Sri Lanka and the... More

At the beginning of May I travelled with a group of 12 Czech tourists to Sri Lanka. As they wanted to prolong their stay by some leisure on the beach for five days, our Sri Lankan travel agent choose for us the Chaaya Blu Hotel in Trincomalee. His choice was more than excellent. Not only did we stay in a... More

Very well organised and comfortable hotel. Good rooms, excellent bathrooms, lovely swimming pool, good location. Food excellent. Our visit was a little ruined by some American Naval personnel who were loud and insensitive to others around them.

Three days at Chaya Blu were heaven! It was sad to leave this chic hotel on the gorgeous Uppuveli beach near Trincomalee. We stayed in a beach chalet which was lovely although request a downstairs chalet which opens right out onto the sand. The staff are so hospitable and even though the hotel is quite big, they took the time... More

Beautiful view, great pool, great beach chairs and the sea is perfect for swimming. Friendly staff (but definately not the most efficient). Breakfast/Dinner was nice, not a lot of non-spicy options. Had some problems with hot water and internet that were not fixed. Overall. a good option in the area, but they still need to improve to be a worthwhile... More

Fantastic place at the most wonderful beach in Sri Lanka. Friendly staff, comfy rooms, brandnew pool, manicured grounds, good food - all perfect. Ask for the beach bungalows vs. the rooms in the main building.. trust me, you will like stepping out to the beach directly. Looking forward to next time!

The hotel is not more than 4 star at best. The hotel needs an overall refurbishment. The pool and beach are nice but the sunbeds are old and too few. The rooms are small but all look onto the sea with balcony. The bathrooms oldish but i found clean. The food was good and service on the whole ok- the... More

It was a nice stay but not that much great. Everything was good but there was nothing special. The room was average but very much clean and calm. The staf was friendly and helpful and their service is excellent. The food was also tasty and there was a good variety in the food. The beach is absolutely great but the... More

It was my second stay at Chaaya Blu in 3 years. I was with my mum and 2 local friends. We arrived around 11:30 am and were greeted warmly. Welcome drinks, a smooth check in, and a request for rooms next to each other were all dealt with efficiently. We were escorted to our rooms within half an hour of... More
