A great hotel set on a fantastic beach, the whole area of Trincomalee is well work an extended visit. Good food (buffet) with a good selection of local dishes and some freshly prepared to order. The hotel also offers a wide range of water based activities

We arrived at 6am and only booked the hotel the night before so I expected that there might be some confusion with the room arrangements - they managed to get our room ready while we waited by the beach which wasn't bad. The staff are all very friendly. Room - not bad, though bathroom can be cleaner. The shower smelled... More

The beach and the sea are great. The rains were only twice. Food in the restaurants is very tasty. Everything is fine except for the air conditioner. AC is very noisy and can not cool the air below 26 degrees.

Chaaya Blu was a very beautiful hotel. Our room was very specious, and a balcony overlooking the ocean. Bathroom had an outdoor shower, liked the raw materials nothing fancy yet clean and specious. Its a large hotel well spread-out. We were on half board which means you get buffet style breakfast and dinner. The food was very good; you get... More

The rooms were beautiful, clean and comfortable and the very comfortable balcony offered great views over... More

We (my family and I) went for 5-day holiday to Trincomalee and stayed at Chaaya Blue. Word "Excellent" would not be an overstatement. Location of the hotel is perfect - it is situated on a long, clean beach with very many small restaurants and cofee shops within walking distance from Chaya (if you opt to have your meals out of...
