Our 3rd time at The Blue Water and it never disappoints. Kushuni and Chamal deserve special mentions as they go above and beyond the service expected. We will be back as soon as we can. Thanks to The Blue Water Hotel again for making our visit to Sri Lanka an absolute pleasure .

Nice hotel but suites amenities missing
We opted for the Executive Suite, which was offered with some special services (special restaurant, lounge for drinks and happy hour), etc., that were not operating due to Covid. It’s a nice, comfortable hotel with professional, kind staff, but I would advice booking the basic rooms until they get things sorted.

Nice grounds, rooms.
It was ok. There was a big convention with hundreds of people. So it was a zoo when I was there. Huge long line for dinner buffet. Not ideal.

2/10 Poor

Stay away if you want to relax
Beware!! Don’t stay at this hotel if you want to relax and sit by the pool. This hotel has less than 100 sunloungers to accommodate over 250 guests. If you don’t get up early, or pay the pool attendant to reserve your sun lounger, you will receive a tatty bit of foam and a towel to sit on the floor until something becomes available. The pool is dirty and green unlike the crystal blue waters as shown. The rooms are dirty with lights falling out the ceiling and cockroaches on the floor. The club lounge access is a joke which is leftover food from breakfast
