We decided to stay at Chaaya Blu trincomalee from 7th to 9th December 2014, it was the first time we visited this place & little that we knew that we were about to experience Hospitality to its finest level. From the Check in till departure we were well looked after by all staff members just like home. The elegant architecture,... More

The Chaaya blue is in an excellent location, fronting the ocean and in close proximity to the visiting points of trincomalee, the hotel infrastructure is however dated despite a recent makeover, the rooms are adequate but only that, the bathrooms throughout the hotel have been refurbished but in a style which looks like the plaster has fallen off so a...

We stayed as a family in room 322 a beach bungalow for two nights. This quite spacious for the three of us and right on the beach front. A warning is the dogs who like to sleep in the garden bed outside the room, both nights at around midnight other dogs would fight for the sleeping rights and then the... More

To get to this hotel, it is better to stay over night in Colombo and take the next cheap flight over to Trincomalee which takes only 45min. With the car it takes 6-9hrs!!! The hotel is beautiful. From the reception you can see a small green pond with frogs, 2m behind the pond is a big blue swimming-pool, after that... More

The hotel was alright. Would I go back probably not. Even though the food was good and lodging was nice, there is nothing to do here. Its very hot so between around 9am and 3pm you cant really leave your room. Much warmer than other parts of the country we stayed it. The sea was rough when we got there... More

Dear Guest Thank you for the 3 star comment. We are happy you have enjoyed our services and facilities. We regret to note you were not aware of the season. East coast has a very short off season, however this is dependent on luck as historically the east coast gets on 1000 mm of rain annually which is negligible in... More

It had been a much awaited visit to Chaaya Blue. Of the few JKH hotels I've been to, by far this is the best!!! I was mesmerized by its blue theme, even before getting there, after looking at the pictures on the website. The real picture never failed us. From the lobby to the Captain's Deck restaurant to the rooms,... More

Thank you for visiting Blu with your family and taking time to share your experience. We are happy you were able to have a relaxing stay. You are correct regarding the weather.

Chaya Blu offers good comfortable rooms and an amazing variety of foods. We had a great time at the hotel, swimming pool and the beach. One of the best hotel on the Trincomalee beach. Lot of things to do like Whale watching, Dolphin watching & Snorkeling, etc
