  • January 2015
I want to share my experience on holidays in Sri Lanka. My husband and I had been planning the vacation on 01/11/2015 19/01/2015. We asked the travel agency in beforehand for the list of good 5 star hotels in the south-west of the island. There was hotel Blue Water Resorts & Spa 5 *, Wadduwa in this list from the host company EXOTIC HOLIDAYS INTERNATIONAL. And we have decided to choose it. We have expected to have a rest at the 5 stars hotel, but on arrival were very disappointed. The reception is whole shabby, there is dirty water in ... the pool, the restaurant is very simple furnished, it's very disgusting to sit on it because it's in spots all over; the food quality is on 3 star lever hotel. The hotel Blue Water Resorts & Spa 5 * in any case does not response the quality of five stars hotel,it's maximum 3 stars. I travel a lot and I know what I talk about. We planned to spend there nine days? But have spent only 5 and then changed the tickets and flew back home. We didn't get any refund for the remaining days in the hotel and for tickets exchange. This situation would not occur if the company EXOTIC HOLIDAYS INTERNATIONAL would provide tourists with true information about the level of hotel which they offer. The tourist has a right to know about the discrepancy of this hotel to the international standards. We are disappointed with EXOTIC HOLIDAYS INTERNATIONAL service and we do not recommend vacation in hotel The Blue Water Resorts & Spa 5 *, Wadduwa if you expect to have a rest in a five star hotel. read hotel review

Very pleasend staff, nice garden, but pool is ruined and should be immediatelly renovated. Kids are under a danger swimming in it, as tiles in the pool can fall and get hurt! one kid was taken to hospital after cutting his toe. Lack of first aid even to help him immiiatelly. Huge problem with the crowns in Sri Lanka but in this area of Wadduwa and in particullar this hotel is full of it. Beach is not safe for swimming during the monsoon. This is not a 5* hotel currently, so be aware. read hotel review

If you are in the blue water complained... Should times as the home looks! The hotel is with all the trimmings a blast! Reception, rooms, restaurants (ranga is my spicy salad specialist), pool, beach, beach boys... Everything makes it a wonderful holiday. We envy every you are now on the travel goes ☺ Wish you just as much fun and recovery as we enjoyed. read hotel review

    The friendliness of the staff from the front desk to the gardener was excellent and not dependent on tips. The room cleaning was done at least 2 times a day and there was no cause for criticism. The staff has english and partly also german knowledge. We had no complaints, we know from other vacationers, that complaints umhgehend was reacted and the deficiencies have been rectified.

    The rooms are spacious and with everything which one in the vacation needs (kettle, air conditioning, fan, telephone, tv with german channels) equipped. All rooms feature a small couch and a makeup or desk. All rooms feature a sea view and private balcony or terrace with furniture. The rooms were cleaned several times daily. The bathrooms are equipped with bathtub, toilet and a large washstand and have an adequate size.

    The gastronomy leaves nothing to be desired. Both the quality and the selection of the meals is outstanding. There were always theme buffets and also a Sri Lanka corner is offered. And should get a special request are, the cooks and the request, if possible. Twice a week there are on the lawn also a seafoodbüfett, in which you for a reasonable price of fresh fish and seafood food.

    The hotel has a huge pool, which were daily cleaned. Unfortunately are a few small tiles loose. These are but from the officials regularly taped. Animation takes place only in limited extent. Therefore, you have not experienced the whole day by loud animation music played. The entertainers also accept without long discussions a no. Beach chairs, cushions and towels were available and the staff to the desired place. A reservation on the early morning is not necessary. One gets also after the breakfast a beautiful spot under a shady palm tree. Parasols are not available, since the lawn on enough palms,. In the evening there was daily light entertainment with different music and folklore shows. Against 23 hours keht but absolute peace and quiet in the hotel. The disco is open on the weekend but is the music not to be heard. The hotel also has a well-equipped gym, a ping-pong table and a tennis court.

  • Location

    The blue water is located directly on the clean sandy beach. This is also of the fishermen used and you can include in your daily work watch. On the sandy beach there was no beach chairs and umbrellas. Beach boys are only to a limited extent available and they were not so pushy and pushy as in many other vacation countries. Due to the teilfertigstellung the new highway is the transfer time is about 1.5 hour the line leads past directly the hotel (the trains are but barely noticeable) and the train station is about 1 kilometer away from the hotel. For smaller trips stand in front of the hotel always more tuk-tuks, the one for little money to the next shopping and restaurants are. For excursions and ayuverda treatments we can manju and rucci highly recommend. The ayuverda treatments are excellent and much cheaper than in the hotel. The same goes for the excursions, which also much indivudueller decorated. Both one found either on the beach or directly opposite of the hotel in their office. The hotel lies in a rather nationaltypical and not tourismusgeprägten region, so that something of the true Sri Lanka experience.

I had a very relaxing time at Blue waters Wadduwa Sri Lanka. It was my first time to travel to Sri Lanka and it definitely won't be my last. The hotel is family friendly at the same time, solo traveler friendly. The staff at the hotel were all very professional and quick at their job. Attention to the customers were excellent. The staff at the hotel were giving you attention but at the same time, it was not in anyway annoying. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind for a few days to forget about the ... stress of work, then this is an excellent place to do that. read hotel review
