It was almost 6hrs journey from Seeduwa to Chaaya Blu.The hospitality was making us so refreshed.
We were staying at Beach Chalets (400series) and room was really spacious which was good since I was traveling with two kids.The location and the hotel were very beautiful.The food was excellent and there was a variety of local and western cuisine.The hotel staff is very helpful and polite.Especially we need to mention the security staff in the hotel was absolutely trust worthy because we had kept the car key on the door itself over night by mistake and there was some valuable things was inside the car.Next day it was found from the reception and everything was safe. The Manager (Suresh) was all over the Hotel and takes care of guest needs. We had a great feeling throughout our stay in Chaaya Blu.

Great property. Nice pool and beach area. Beach is clean and is at the quiet end of the bay. Sadly no spa so no massages. Great restaurant the crab. You have to try the Jaffna crab curry. So many great dishes to choose from.

I regret paying full board, wish I had just left it open to choose. We ate at the crab anyway. The food was great, if you like sri lankan food. The non sri lankan food was a bit on the boring side, but there were alternatives.

Great restaurant and front office staff, looked after us well.

The beach was a bit unclean, with a few plastic bags floating around which was a bit sad. Spent hours in the pool. Nice kiddie pool.

Best way to get there is to fly from Colombo if you can't be bothered with the long drive.

The beach challets give you beautiful views and access to the beach.

Room Tip: Beach chalet is the best to get with nice views. but the beach is so close you don't need to pay the premium just for beach access.

We had a nice pleasant stay for 2 nights. The buffet and view from our chalet were worth every penny. However the room I felt could have been slightly more spruced up- blinds were broken, shower was dark as light was broken. For the price I think it can certainly be spruced up. However it is not terrible and didn't make our stay any less enjoyable. The beach is beyond amazing. The sand is soft and flat. Best beach in Sri Lanka!

We reached Trinco after a long and tiresome car journey from Negombo.The white hotel almost on the beach, provided a spectacular sight of the Indian Ocean and had an excellent pool. The rooms though were a bit small but the service was good. The beakfast and the toiletries were quite good. The live music in the evenings are very soothing.

Room Tip: Choose the ground floor rooms!!

Chaaya Blu has so much going for it but does not seem to feel the need to make use of it. Great location stunning beaches and a lovely pool. Food is good too..buffet with quite a bit to choose from. Very friendly staff. This what keeps Chaaya Blu going.Maintenance seems to be pretty sloppy and room cleanliness standards not really upto the mark. Right now besides Nilaveli Resort there does not seem to be much competition to make Chaaya Blu pull up its socks but once competition sets in then a definite make over is required to stay in the running.But overall a lovely experience and would definitely go back to the lovely beaches n the good food.We stayed in the cottage and the view of the ocean was just amazing.Chaaya Blu certainly is a place to treasure.

Room Tip: Go for the cottages for an ocean view and the standard rooms for a pool view.
