We came for dinner after having been there for a drink the evening before as it looked amazing. And it is. Very good taste, often difficult to see in sri lanka upscale places. Beautiful lightning, furniture, on the beach, good atmosphere, nice bar, all good. But the food didnt compete with this level. We asked the 3 best crab dishes... More

We stayed at the Chaaya Blu for 8 nights in June with friends after a tour of Sri Lanka and absolutely loved the hotel. Beautiful location right on a white sand beach with friendly staff, good food and good service. Some of the hotels we stayed at in Sri Lanka were functional but this although built in 1970s had real... More

Went here for a dinner and was not disappointed. food was marvelous, as everyone else has commented - lots of choices and the manager was very helpful with explaining the wines and the beverages. I had about a million requests due to dietary restrictions and they were very gracious with following them all. This is certainly a place for a... More

We were offered an upgrade to a beach bungalow which is a bit further down from the excellent hotel pool, but a really great thing overlooking the pristine beach. Other rooms are in the hotel itself and most likely also large and nice. We enjoyed our small spot of privacy. For the rest the Chaaya is a bit of a... More

Utterly idyllic location with a beautiful sandy beach stretching for miles and safe for children to swim. The staff and local people are amazing, so helpful and friendly. We are indebted to Chaaya Blu for their free upgrade to a beach bungalow, it absolutely made our holiday. Sri Lanka is a beautiful land full of beautiful people, we adore it.... More

Our room was on the second floor with a balcony facing the pool/beach. I think all rooms face the pool/beach, but the ones below us had access directly to the pool. The air conditioning switches off when you remove your key, but the staff told us a trick to leaving it on. Put one of the tags from the complimentary... More

This was the apex of our trip before making the run back to Colombo airport and it was a great place to relax after several hot days of walking around ancient ruins. We got upgraded to one of the beach front units (only sand and a few palm trees between us and the water). The beach is very gradual and... More

While we were booking the place the pics on the website didn't look very appealing but when we got there the resort literally took our breath away. It far exceeded our expectations . The service was really good.Our room had a great view overlooking the pool and the beach. The service too was excellent.
