The Blue Water – Wadduwa

Sri Lanka

At the Blue Water Resort, as its name suggests, water is the defining feature, with its tropical gardens and clustered wild coconut palms set through with streams, fountains, waterways and cascading ponds, and a giant swimming pool winding through the main lobby. The resort was designed by the renowned Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa as a reinterpretation of an old colonial rest-house, and the emphasis is on classic decor, using natural woods and white linens, with rich modern Sri Lankan furnishings. The Blue Water is a family-run hotel, with many of the current staff being part of the extended family and having been there from the start — this results in a welcoming atmosphere, and what is generally regarded as an exceptional level of customer service.
For food, guests have a choice of three distinctive restaurants, and evening dining is made even more delightful by the reflection of the hotel lights in the many stretches of water. At the main restaurant, the Admiral’s Room, guests can choose to dine indoors amid stunning architecture, or out on the terrace enjoying the fabulous views, while at the Nautilus there is an outstanding selection of fine wines from the walk-in wine cellar. Drinks and light meals are available at the Sunset Lounge and the Clipper Bar, and on some nights you can enjoy a lavish barbecue under the stars.
