Brilliant! We stayed here for 7 nights because we loved it so much! Chu Chi is the star of the show and is amazing at what he does! We were recommended Blue Haven and did not do a tour or driving, which hasn't sounded like it's worked out for everyone, but just booking into the hotel and getting up there...

We stayed here for 2 nights while we visited Kandy. Firstly the main man Samon (i think) was very welcoming and incredibly hardworking. Our stay would not have been the same without him. The rooms were basic but spacious and very clean. There is a main terrace where all guests sit and chat giving the guest house a really nice...

We stayed a night here during a short trip. The room was basic but not unexpected at this price. Friendly welcome although a 10 minute tuk tuk from town, (makes for a bit more sightseeing!) Great private breakfast next to the pool and friendly staff.

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....

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...

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...

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...
