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!

This hotel is by far one of the best situated in the most safe and scenic area in Tobago. The staff is extremely welcoming, the food ( Chef Jason ) is out of this world. They make you feel at home....

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
