We booked a 11-day-trip (car, driver, accommodation, petrol) with Blue Haven at the trainstation in Colombo. Everything worked out perfectly and it wasn´t a problem to do some changes during the trip. The guys are very flexible. Our driver - named Mali - was really kind,helpful and motivated. We enjoyed, spending time with him. No drawbacks for us.

Nothing was too much trouble for Tissa, he made us laugh a lot and he...

BUT was really disappointed the second time and mortified we had recommended them. On both visits I had to request a new pillow coz it had clearly already been slept on....

We stayed at Blue Haven for 2 nights, but got kind of sad when we left, we wanted to stay longer! The rooms are basic but clean, and we had a balcony with an amazing view. We didn't try the dinner, but the breakfast was good and well cooked. Also nice to be a little bit away from the city(not...

That's a very nice hotel with a swimming pool. They offered best services when I was there. That Room price was fair and conditions of that room also was really good. I highly recommend it. Specially for youngsters!
