Thats right the minute you walk... More

Gorgeous grounds, fantastic food and outstanding Sri Lankan hospitality. I would thoroughly recommend The Blue Water as a place to relax and unwind in laid-back luxury. The gardens are particularly delightful with visiting fruit bats and parrots each evening!
