Always discreet and quiet, but always immediately there and has fulfilled every wish. His kindness, prudence and forward thinking are on the whole very good. Also the fitness area was great, the two coaches were incredibly engaged, thank you very much. After these six days with three children in Blue Water, we seriously consider returning soon :-) Read less

A special thank must go to Ms. Ruvani for event coordination and excellent support given to us in planning the wedding and during the wedding day. To add we lost a piece of wedding jewellery during the wedding. Yet with in two hours from the function they found it and returned to us. This shows their staff's integrity and service level. Food is really delicious and we had a great support from the hotel staff in every aspect throughout our wedding and stay. Thank you very much Ruwani and team blue water - Damiha & Thilini Read less
