We stumbled on the blue haven office when we couldn't get a ticket for the train to kandy at Colombo station. The owner of the business was very helpful and didn't try to rip us off when pricing our trip. We already had accommodation booked so just required a driver. Danu picked us up from our hotel the next day.... More

We had a two day trip around the beautiful areas of Kandy, Pollunawura, Dambulla and Sigiriya. Our driver Danu was a brilliant guide, bringing us to temples and scenic areas we would never have found by using public transport. Highly recommended.

The guest house part of Blue Haven is average at best, room could have used a thorough cleaning, lots of dust and webs especially in the bathroom. Showering with a cockroach crawling up my leg wasn't too pleasant either. I know this is Sri Lanka and some bugs are to be expected, but this was the least clean accommodation we... More

We had a great day trip from Kandy to Sigiriya with our driver Danu. It was all very easy to arrange beforehand, including a reasonable price and pick up from our hotel. Danu was a great guide, knowledgable and suggesting a few places to visit on the way to Sigiriya because we'd probably be too tired to do anything on... More

I went to an office at Colombo Fort Station to purchase tickets to Trincomalee and ended buying a 7 day driver package. This in itself had its advantages one of them being I didn't have to arrange transport between each of my stopping points. As an aside the price of the hire of the vehicle went up in price from...

We organised our own accommodation and just required a driver. Blue Haven was very patient with our inquiries over email. Our driver was Nuwan who was exceptional. He was a safe driver and he was able to give us good information and advice and importantly was flexible. We highly recommend him.

We've just finished a 6-day tour with Blue Haven tours starting in Colombo where mr. Linton arranged it for us, all the way through the Hill country and Uda Walawe national park. We were very happy with the tour overall, the nice accommodation arranged underway and especially with our driver and guide Sandamal. Doing the tour allowed us to see... More

I phoned the establishment 3 days before our arrival and booked a deluxe suite for two nights. I was assured by the manager, who is the owner's son, that there is a suite available. We took a very scenic train trip up from Galle where we rented a villa for a month. The mamanager told us to call him from... More

Last week we embarked on a 6-day, 5-night tour with Blue Haven Tours after stumbling across their office at the Colombo train station. Initially, we were a bit hesitant since we are experienced and independent travellers. However, we are very glad that we booked a tour with Blue Haven. The tour was incredibly lovely and we had the opportunity to... More

Lovely pool although I've seen cleaner. Shouldn't be a problem unless you are obsessed with crystal clear water. Cheap beer and pretty good breakfast. Very honest staff who returned my soaked money I had forgotten in the laundry bundle. Nicely located away from the constant kandy hooking madness. As opposed to many places in Sri Lanka, most rooms boast a... More

Thank you very much for appreciating Blue Haven and specially I would like to thank you for the comment given by you about tuk tuk drivers in the city. They are not received commission from us. Hence you cannot hear good thing about us. We keep fix rates for rooms and won't increase the price from one guest to the... More
