The Trinco Blu hotel on the east coast can be reached from Colombo by rail, air and road. However, we choose road as this avoided the tedium of some airport procedures and gives a door to door service. The road trip is a fast five an a half hour trip with a short stop from Colombo airport or an eight...

This is a sea facing resort with white colored furnishing. The feel is extremely relaxed, and rooms were nice. The staff is very pleasant, and the overall demeanor is also very positive. The breakfast spread is fantastic. Food is slightly more expensive, especially the buffet. One of the most enjoyable stay in our life.

Verandah outside room looking onto lawn, swimming pool and private hotel beach some 30 m away although there were a lot of zonked out dogs some of whom tried to shelter from the sun under your sunbed. Room had safe with fridge/mini bar. Room...

I didn't stay there but I was looking for a decent place to eat decent food....and I got it. The buffet can seems to be expensive 2500rs but for what you get, it's worth it. From starters chicken liver salad or chicken pineapple or different local appetizers, to main courses like beef pie which is more a "gratin dauphinois" but...

We had a very enjoyable visit to the Trinco Blu at Trincomalee. Some of the previous comments did cause my wife and I a little concern but such fears were groundless. The location is beautiful, the vista incredible, the sunrise astounding and the attention of the staff (particularly Sachitha in the Crab Bar) excellent although the service at the drinks...
