Serene,charming and relaxing

If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with plenty of space to soak the sun, or sit in a quiet corner away from the crowd and listen to the sound of flowing water,or walk about holding hands of your beloved partner, this is the place to go.The breathtaking product of one of Sri Lanka's best known architects, The Blue Water has a character and style of its own and second to none. Though there was a delay in getting our room ready, the quality of the service offered from then onward was amazing and seamless.Our room had a beautiful view of the sea and all the comforts and amenities we could ask for. It was neat, clean and the balcony gave us a breathtaking view of the Indian ocean and the setting sun. We would have preferred a bigger and better choice of food in the buffets, and in the New Year eve special dinner with the large number of guests present, and with foreign tourists outnumbering the locals by a huge margin. To sum-up, it was a great stay and one to remember.
