After spending 2/3 weeks in Sri Lanka on business and for a wedding, on our penultimate day we were taken to the Blue Water resort just outside of Colombo.
There were 10 of us that went for the day- getting the lunch and use of the swimming pool package, as we didn't have enough time to stay over night. I think it was around £15 per person, which is fine for what you get.
The lunch was ok- nothing extremely exciting. I can't remember the majority of it, so nothing good and nothing bad either.
What set's this place apart is the pool and beach. The pool is enormous, and we loved spending our day in it. We probably spent approximately 5-6 hours swimming around.
The deck chairs were nice, and the design is splendid.
The beach is also beautiful, especially for the sunset.
My only sour note was in having an altercation with an individual over my swim wear. I decided to wear a swimming vest (as a male) in the pool, due to injuries and general dislike. I was made to take it off otherwise I'd be "removed from the hotel". That was unacceptable from a paying guest, and a way to really damage the integrity and future business that I could have brought to the hotel.
Fortunately, it didn't tarnish a wonderful day, and I hope to return soon.
Please note this review is in reference to a visit in August 2010.
