Back to the beach bar that night where the beer had somehow gone down to 350SLR a can which pleased me although still pretty expensive for what the place was. I did stay a bit later tht night, gone one o'clock in fact which is pretty unusual even in Colombo. The place was pretty empty again which gave me the opportunity to chat with the staff as they had nothing else to do. Again hopefully a few images here wil give you an ...
... them. I do not want to fall into this category and give this impression and I am trying not to - I just need to figure out the way to do it still. Work in progress. Saying that, we have met some amazing people in the guesthouses we've stayed in and the restaurants we've eaten in. I love women and children - always ready with a smile and a wave!! The children are so fabulous. They never fail to put a huge smile on my face. They will all smile, wave and try and catch our ...
We didn't have the best of days but it was quite interesting. We decided to get the shuttle bus into the town or else we had to walk about 2 klms to get a taxi. Queued for over an hour and only two buses left in that time and there would have been another 4 bus loads still in the queue. We headed off to get a taxi and picked up Tim on the way (he was on our Asian cruise). We got in a nice taxi to go into town but by the time we had ...
... was to find a camera repair shop and the guys at the front desk of the hotel were so helpful and through a series of phone calls to friends and the like the sent me to an actual Canon store that was pretty much around the corner for the hotel. Unfortunately the news from the repair department was not good. They could not repair the camera here and would have to send it to Singapore which is of no help to me. My only other option was to buy a new body, but ...
Having kissed Thailand goodbye, I sat in the airport killing time, and decided to, out of interest, see how long it would take to fly direct from Bangkok to Columbo, versus the 13 hr route via Dubai as booked by our travel agent. Oh, just 3 hours then - I tried not to think about this too much. It will be nice to meet Lego for the final leg of the journey, and in no way am I kicking myself for not looking into this sooner... 13 hours later, and with long lost fiancé in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Blue Water Wadduwa
We stayed here in July/August 2003. We had booked a multicentre holiday with Emerates Airlines to stay in Dubai, Sri Lanka and the Maldives. I was really looking forward to Dubai and my girlfriend was really looking forward to the Maldives so we were both taken by surprise by the wonderful time we had at the Blue Water!
I stayed at the Blue water hotel whilst working in Sri Lanka. This was my first trip without my partner or kids. After the long drive down from Sigeria I was shattered and the welcome to the Blue Water is lovley. Garlands of flowers cool towels and a lovely drink was very welcoming. From the outside it looks like a prison, no signs just a long concrete wall and enormous gates not very welcoming esp as it is surrounded by poverty, however the inside is paradise.
We had a family holiday at the Blue Water Hotel for 11 days over Easter 2005.
We spent ten nights at the Blue Water and came away totally relaxed because we did not feel like we had to do anything. So many times you go on holiday and you feel that you should go to the local museum, or the local market or the local relic. The Blue Water is totally for doing nothing.
We stayed here for two nights at the end of a quite hectic and exhausting tour of the island itself, ready to do nothing but relax.
Fantastic Hotel & Service
We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights before moving on to the Maldives. I cannot fault the Blue Water Hotel at all the staff were very friendly & helpful, the rooms were simple clean and spacious with a nice size balcony and wooden patio furniture. The food was amazing all Buffett style but something to suit everyone. We got married here and had a fabulous time. Would definitely go back again.
The swimming pool is huge and runs through the hotel with ponds and waterfalls the attention to detail is amazing the hotel was designed by a top architect as well. The grounds are well kept and very clean. Please visit you will have a great time.
We stayed in the Blue Water in August 2004. It was an amazing two weeks. The hotel is beautiful, the pool fantastic and the staff very friendly and helpful.
We stayed at the Blue Water at the end of March 2005. The hotel is beautiful: immaculate, with a fantastic pool, and located right on an almost (except for the odd beach haggler who were only really there in the mornings) deserted stretch of beach. The food is mainly buffet style and the quality was excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful - but I have qualified this comment a little later on. The hotel had been hit by the tsunami, but it was only cosmetic. You would not know it had happened to look at the place.
One of the best hotels
We visited this hotel in early 2004. What a fantastic experience! The hotel is very well designed and the rooms are A1. Service is exceptional and the food is fantastic.
The hotel is just off the beach which stretches off into the distance in both directions.
If you want to visit Sri Lanka then please consider this superb hotel
This hotel is beautiful! Spacious rooms with an interesting layout, large, clean bathroom and wonderful sea views. The pools are glorious and the service is immaculate. The only issue I had was the 2 or 3 cockroaches that would find themselves in your room after you turned the lights on but those things get everywhere. Food was great, we were all inclusive and the buffets each night had a wonderful selection of international and local food.
Very relaxing holiday.
