Spent 6 nights in this resort. We were assigned to a Beach Chalet which is very convenient for our whale expedition during the day. All we need to do each morning is to walk out the beachfront door with our gears and hop onto the boat waiting 20 M away. Our accommodation are on full board. Buffet meals served at... More

As Americans who have lived in Sri Lanka for almost 4 years, we have definitely stayed in better hotels with more personal service and more warmth. We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and felt like yet one more tourist packed into a large impersonal place. We had paid in advance for a room for 2 adults and paid $60... More

Chaaya Blu should live up to the standards of its own kin elsewhere in the country, especially since this is a beach resort.. Could do better with the collection and choices of food.. Need to improve service while dining.. Overall it has one of the best beaches to chill.. Peaceful.

The hotel's surrounding together with the beach is magnificent. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The hotel has been recently renovated so it looks nice. The location is near other attractions in Trincomalee which makes it easier to visit them. The rooms are however quite small. Nevertheless the overall experience with Chaaya Blu was fantastic.

Though early check-ins and late check-outs were not provided (so I lounged about the beach a lot!), the staff are friendly and hospitable. Coffee on the house while I was waiting for my room to be readied was a pleasant touch. The rooms have two entrances - through the corridor and one from the beach/ pool etc. Each room has... More

Spent a week here recharging the batteries. Lounging by the pool, long walks on the beach, swimming in the sea, sleeping and reading to the sound of the waves and cawing of the crows. Beautiful location on the beach where you can watch the daily labour of the local fishermen cast out their net and haul it ashore. Brilliant teamwork... More
