We picked this hotel from Emirates Holidays with their recommendation and must say at the outset that we were not disappointed. I contacted the hotel prior to our visit to request suggestions for our anniversary which they duly obliged with. Our suite in the 'new wing' was perfect - spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable. The Admirals restaurant (the main one)... More

We recently returned from a 10 night stay at The Blue Water, returning to Sri Lanka after a 23 yr gap. We chose Sri Lanka as my daughter wanted to see the places I'd visited previously and British Airways had good airmiles offers available. We chose The Blue Water as it was relatively close to the airport after our long... More
