Since we got married at this hotel in 2008 we have visited this hotel many times. Simply the best beach resort in sri Lanka. From a tastefully decorated room to an stunning view of a Sun set over the Indian ocean this is purely a place to come and forget about the rest of the world. From the moment we... More

I returned on Sunday from this lovely hotel (There at the same time as the Irish wedding party). I'll echo what they say, excellent staff, well trained, helpful and sincere. The duty manager Laksikah is worthy of high praise for his handling of a delicate situation while we were there. He was also visible almost all day every day. A... More

I never wanted to be for this hotel provided it was a very popular place among most of guests I have spoken (because I wanted to check in to places that others have not much visited). But the from the moment I checked in It was proven I was wrong. Pros: What a landscape and architecture, well trained staff, gorgeous... More

My second visit to The Blue Water, really enjoyed it both times. The gift shop and jewellery shops opposite are well worth a visit - the staff are incredibly friendly and will help you with anything. I needed to get some jewellery repaired and my mother went for her wedding rings and was extremely happy. Very friendly, fairly priced and... More

Second time staying at this hotel. The hotel itself is beautiful and stylish, one of Geoffrey Bawa's creations, lots of open spaces with wonderful sea breezes and well looked after grounds. We were here for 4 nights staying on an all inclusive basis. The rooms themselves are not that big and need updating, especially the bathroom with poor shower pressure... More

My wife & I have just returned from a 13 day holiday in Sri Lanka, during which we stayed at four hotels. The Blue Water hotel in Wadduwa was our fourth hotel, where we stayed for five nights. Our previous hotel was the Tea Factory in Nuwara Eliya and despite having our own driver it still took us seven hours... More

After a week at Blue Water I offer the following observations. On the positive side I would say the rooms are comfortable with a balcony and excellent views of the pool and ocean beyond. Access to the beach is very easy although there are no loungers or parasols provided there. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful and the... More

So, starting from the beginning. Airport transfers were arranged for us with no issues there. Its a good 2 hour + journey from the airport to the hotel and the traffic/driving standards are just terrifying. Luckily I believe the hotel does only use good drivers as ours got us there in one piece! We arrive at the hotel and I... More
