Blue Waters Inn

Tobago, Caribbean

The hotel

Set within 46 acres of lush tropical grounds, upon its own private bay, the Blue Waters Inn not only offers an idyllic, peaceful location — perhaps even the most beautiful on Tobago — it’s a very friendly place to relax too. With views of the turquoise ocean from almost every angle, the gently shelving beach offers opportunity galore for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking. In fact, this beachfront hotel boasts its own on-site PADI diving facility, so don your wetsuit and explore a wonderful world underwater, with sites such as Angle Reef, which is perfect for beginners to the more challenging Japanese Gardens, Blackjack Hole and London Bridge. Bird watching is another favourite pastime, the surrounding rainforest is home to many exotic species. Small and intimate, the hotel is nonetheless perfect for families as well as couples with rooms overlooking the beachfront and ocean, and freestanding bungalows for those seeking something a little more spacious. Dining is at Aqua, serving sumptuous à la carte specialities and some of the most delicious cocktails you’ve tasted!

Pros: My husband and I spent our Honeymoon at BWI since Tobago was our only option to get that "honeymoon vibe".BWI did not disappoint us. It was a very romantic and unforgettable experience. The rooms were very comfy, spacious and clean. We received a free upgrade as well as complimentary welcome drinks. The beach was gorgeous and just footsteps away from our room. We relaxed in the pool for hours as it was very refreshing. The hotel has a game room which we enjoyed on a rainy day. We had dinner one night at the restaurant, the food was very tasty and the dessert- a slice of chessecake was rich and moist. We took the breakfast plan, which we enjoyed thoroughly. BWI is in close proximity to two restaurants: Jemma's Seaview Kitchen and Birdwatchers. Cons: A lot of the items at the bar were not in stock. The bartender was not available to make certain cocktails, therefore the chef had to do it. He made a good effort. The breakfast plan was not buffet style, which we expected. The fruits should be of more variety to choose from. The dinner portion was very small for the price. Overall was a great stay at BWI and we will definitely be back! Read less

Although there was some minor hiccups with electricity and WASA on the isle, we were upgraded from a Studio King Deluxe Suite to a Bungalow. There are covid 19 restrictions on the island presently so there is no in-house dining currently taking place. However, food is ordered and delivered to us in a timely manner! Food is delicious! Kudos to the chef for having patience with us on this trip. Cheers! #kyleandalexis150820 Read less

Blue Waters Inn is undoubtedly one of Tobago's hidden treasures. Hence, in my humble opinion it is the BEST Eco tourist destination on the island. It is neatly tucked away in the heart of Speyside, an ideal location for newlyweds if you need some privacy. LOL! It is indeed a bird watcher's haven. Ideal location for travel enthusiasts who will like to experience diving, snorkeling, and even have a peek at the largest brain coral in the western hemisphere. Friendly and welcoming staff who make you feel right at home:) The rooms were spotless, furnished with all the modern amenities you will need for a comfortable stay. Compliments to the chef! Both dinner and breakfast were divine. Our family will recommend this gem to anyone who visits the island of Tobago. Captivating sun kissed ocean front view with tranquil, turquoise waters to take your breath away was the signature of this unforgettable stay. Indeed a magnificent home away from home:) Thank you for a memorable Golden Birthday:) Read less

This hotel is nested in one of the best geographic locations we have ever been on; it sits perfectly inside a beautiful bay, which provides you with an incredible view, privacy and security. The hotel staff was amazing! They made every effort to make sure we had the best experience possible in the hotel: from the front desk team always ready to help, to the chef with his amazing food, and the general manager, who was always there doing everything in his power to make sure we were having a great stay. The hotel beach is just beautiful. The water is clean and clear, from above the colors are amazing and the water temperature was just perfect. The hotel provides water sports for free, such as kayaking and stand paddles or snorkeling. It’s also worth to mention that they have a Padi dive shop on site, and are close to some of the best diving spots in Tobago. The rooms are clean and renewed and have a great view. We stayed in 2 rooms during our stay (we totally recommend the bungalow, if you are traveling with kids, or just want a very private stay). Overall, we totally recommend this hotel for its staff, facilities and the great location, if you are looking for a relaxed getaway far away from your busy city life. Read less
