Perfect place for a family break 💜”

I am an airline captain, hence having the experience of staying over at quite a number of places, I have to admit that Trinco Blu by Cinnamon has become one of my favourite hotels so far; it is a perfect place for a family break or even a couple’s retreat. The ambience of the hotel is influenced by the beach with a picturesque view. All three meals follow the buffet set up with quite a wide range of options to choose from and a variety of cuisines. The options would cater to members of one’s family of any age! Moreover, the hotel staff are a true sample of excellent hospitality. From the first call to inquire regarding the hotel till I reached home, they made sure everything was fine. This review would be incomplete if I don’t mention the front office personnel, Pradeep who is a gem at this hotel. He took care of our booking from the beginning like our personal assistant. Although he was not on duty the day we arrived, he made sure all was well arranged and smooth upon our arrival.

Excellent for beach front relaxation”

Beach, pool, great staff

Myself and my fiance stayed at the Chaaya Blu for four nights before going to another beach in Sri Lanka, and to be honest, we should have stayed at the Chaaya Blu for the extra four nights. The beach in Trincomalee is excellent. Nice sand, clear and warm water. Also a very nice pool. Trinco is still a new area, so the beach is very much not crowded, and its easy to get a couple chairs in the shade all day. The staff are very friendly and attentative, especially at the Crab (restaurant/bar on the beach). We ended up eating there every lunch/dinner rather than the buffet. The dive shop on-site is also amazing. I was new to diving (while my fiance is already certified), and they were great in teaching me the basics, and then allowing us to go on dives together. Would highly recommend the Chaaya Blu to anyone.

No Trinco Blues”

We had initially booked in for 3 days but then extended day by day for a week, we liked it so much. Because of the war, this part of Sri Lanka is very undeveloped for tourism. Even on this tourist strip of beach the hotels have space between them. There are fewer tourist shops than in other parts of Sri Lanka, in fact almost none. Not many back-packers' cheap hotels. And very few beach traders - only one or two ladies with hopeful smiles and bags slung over their shoulders holding up pretty garments to entice you. There's very little hassle. Trinco Blu is definitely the best hotel on Upavelli. Perhaps the rooms are a bit small but they are very clean & have all the facilities you'd want - wi-fi, safe, hair dryer, fridge, aircon of course. The staff are very well trained & very attentive. Two excellent restaurants including a buffet that changes daily & which is very good value.

Great location and good value”

Stayed at Trinco Blu when visiting the region. The location by the beach with an infinity pool is fantastic and the rooms and service first class. I was there to visit beneficiaries from our charity so could not benefit from the holiday focussed facilities but they looked great. The option of a romantic dinner on the beach in particular looked fun. The one issue I faced is that there are no business oriented facilities such as a computer centre or USB plugs. I unfortunately had the charger to my computer break so could have benefited from these. Any tourist in the region would do well to consider this hotel, in particular the rooms facing the beach.

Beautiful beach, excellent service”

Very helpful service

chaaya blu is a great hotel if you want to enjoy a relaxing time on the beach. we were in a cabana which opened onto the beach so we literally could not get any closer to the water. the views were great! the property is well maintained and clean. the beach in front of the hotel was the cleanest in the area by far. staff was very helpful and friendly, we couldn't have asked for better service. a/c and hot water were excellent and wifi coverage was strong throughout the hotel. the pool is also nice and clean. there are only a few places along the beach to walk to for food, but not many. if you want to go around you will have to get a tuk tuk outside the hotel (very cheap)or use the hotel's transport service (not very cheap). the hotel has two restos, one is buffet with western and sri lankan food which is very good with many choices; the other is a la carte seafood. if you're looking for a place near trinco that is remote, peaceful and relaxing this is it!

Good Agoda Discount Booking”

We loved coming to this hotel. It was filled with families with younger children and mostly Sri Lankans at the time we went. The room was clean, though the balcony had a mosquito home on the wall which made us afraid to hang out for too long. The beach was wonderful. The buffet was great, though not enough protein options for vegetarians. The restaurant's crab curry was incredible and the cocktails were well made as well. We were sad that we only had one night there as we were touring through the island, but we our one day/night at Trinco Blu was our favorite night in Sri Lanka.

spectacular setting”

the hotel is beautifully located , the staff were friendly and helpful , particularly the manager , huge buffet ...spoilt for choice.

We arrived at Chaaya blu tired and sweaty after an 8 hour drive from Colombo. ...only to find that our booking was for single occupancy ....we had made a mistake in our hurry to book ! however , after explaining our plight to the manager in charge , he did change it to a double room and a cot for our child and was kind enough to do it without a huge increase in cost. this kind of thoughtfulness was displayed through our entire stay . the staff were polite and helpful . the rooms were very clean and comfortable. the last 3 days we got an upgrade to their deluxe bungalows on the beach ....that was to die for . Large airy with a great view of the bay ,,,,it was a real treat . Food was varied and plentiful...the buffet was like a banquet, but taste wise I would rate it average . unfortunately we didnt get to eat too much fish. ...catch was not too good. They offer some amazingly romantic dinners for two set up right on the beach with the surf just a few feet away. All in all , I would recommend this hotel and would revisit it when we return to Trinco .

Spectacular yet annoying”

Trinco Blu is wonderful in every way, elegant, comfortable, beautiful setting, amazing pool. Our visit was marred by two instances of inappropriately "friendly" waiters. One went so far as to ask if and what we drank, what time we went to bed, and would like us to meet him on the beach after his shift. Both these waiters returned to our table frequently to talk about themselves and push their agenda. It was so unprofessional and disappointing for the upscale Cinnamon resort.

One night stay in mid December..Friendly and helpful staff as u can expect in any cinnamon hotel...location is excellent ...just in front of the beach (even though the sea was rough due to a storm in the ocean which is pretty unusual as Trincomallee is one of the nicest beach in SL)Dinner from Their beach restaurant (the crabs) was bit expensive ...but acceptable price (~1200pp without beverages) and good portion size and quality ...Excellent breakfast as u can expect in any of their cinnamon hotels .... Cons- Only negative point is lot of stray dogs in the beach as well as inside the hotel premises which i really dont have a big issue but some might feel not so....Management have already taken few steps to reduce but still there were half a dozen of stray dogs hanging around !

Postcard-like place”

Food - both buffet and a-la carte; attentive staff; fantastic beach

Pluses - Beautiful beach with minimum people, clean and calm ocean - Absolutely great food in The Crab (a-la carte beach bar). We tried different places along the beach but ended up deciding the one in Chaaya has the best food choice, taste and serving style – and pricing is very reasonable (lunch with beer less than 15 USD per person) - Nice breakfast buffet with freshly made omlettes, crepes, waffles and really tasty pastries - Bright, crispy white & indigo design - Clean and properly heated pool with sea view - Our beach bungalow had a rainfall shower alfresco. Having a shower under the stars is just unforgettable - WiFi speed was OK and the connection was up all the time we were there - Very elegant live music every evening – guitar solos, saxophone Minuses - The hotel is not really new, so some parts of rooms (i.e. terrace in superior rooms, some walls) have battered look; - One night we saw a number of cows eating grass 3 meters away from our terrace. Not a big problem but may startle you if you don’t expect that in the middle of hotel grounds; Summing up – I’d definitely return myself and highly recommend this place for everyone heading to Trinco. There are not really much hotels around, and this one is the best if you are looking for a relaxing and well-serviced holiday. The place won’t go for nightlife lovers, but perfectly suitable families and couples looking for some romance and paradise-like views.

Great hotel in a beautiful location”

Very nice rooms all with private balcony or terrace. Very good food and very friendly service. Nice shop!

We had a very relaxing time in this beautifully located hotel with private beach and large swimming pool. The food was excellent in the seafood specialty restaurant as well as the regular restaurant. Very, very friendly personnel. Free WiFI throughout the hotel, but internet connection at its best in the main building. Warning to travelers who fly in and book this themselves: there are no taxis or tuktuks at the airport. The hotel does not provide taxi service to and fro, but can arrange a taxi at LKR (one way) for approx 5 km!! A total rip off as the one way fare from Colombo to Trincomalee is also LKR 4000. Our Sri Lankan friends were appalled! Some tour operators provide this transport, so check before you book your flight. We had a 5 hr sightseeing tour with an English speaking driver who appeared to be a very good guide as well: LKR 6000, value for money. Although we did not have time to do so, it is also a nice place for snorkling and diving enthousiasts. The hotel provides very good service for both.

We stayed in Chaya blue trincomalee for 2 nights, though we wanted to stay more but the hotel was fully booked. The rooms were big and comfortable, the pool was really nice. But the best thing is the great beach just outside the hotel. Great sunbeds and nice staff. The crab restaurant was great and we ate there almost every night! Note that the price through Agoda was a lot cheaper than through the hotel reception.

Excellent short break”

Location, beach and food

The staff were very attentive, friendly and efficient. We were two friends having a short break and enjoyed the relaxing time we had there. The sea eagles were a sight to see when the fish were being hauled in. Whilst there was a bit of a swell to the waves the sea was basically safe for swimming for those able to do so. The food was very good and with the option of eating at The Crab restaurant on the same site there was a range of food styles to choose from. We flew to Trincomalee airport which is not that far from the hotel however the transport was expensive at Rs4,000/= it is best to use a three-wheeler (having first agreed the price) rather than have a van or car, Rs800/= is a good price to pay currently. The three wheeler we used had probably the most honest driver I have experienced in my six years in Sri Lanka.

Pleasant surprise”

Breakfast, beach, hotel decor

I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the hotel, the open lobby was very pleasant as were the recently renovated rooms and balcony and the beach location was brilliant. But I absolutely loved the breakfast and all the traditional Sri Lankan food (full of coconut flavours- YUM!)and fresh fruit juices. Would recommend hotels by Cinnamon if travelling to Sri Lanka based on this hotel alone. However, I wasn't particularly impressed by the menu on the onsite Crab restaurant or the evening dinner buffet. But overall, would recommend this hotel.

What a place! We just loved it.”

A place to relax and enjoy life. Fantastic hotel and beach.

If you ever have to choose for whether to have beach holiday in Colombo or in Trincomalee - go for the latter. Fatastic hotel, great service, truely great hotel, and if your budget allows for it - go for the beach chalet!

Amazing stay at Trinco Blu”

Loved our stay here. We stayed for 2 nights at Trinco Blu and we had the Ground floor units which faces the pool and with the back access to the pool and beach. Amazing view, wonderful staff who are ever so friendly with smiles on the face and nice food at the restaurant. Gift shop is not bad, slightly pricey but guess its not too bad. We had lobsters and prawns one night at the ala carte restaurant for about 11000 rupees and vege sandwhiches the next day which was nicely done. They do change currencies at the hotel but there is a 3% commission charge so unless you really need it change money elsewhere. Overall an amazing stay and would definitely go back there.

Spent 1 night in this top hotel in trincomalee, it was certainly well worth the money , although the room could have been in any top hotel in any where in the world, but it was clean and conforable, the staff were very friendly and helpful We had dinner in the hotel which was buffet style and was excellent .
