Had a nice meal when we stayed at the Blue Water hotel. We ate outside - but the noise from the water feature was very loud and made it difficult to hear each other.

A varied and delicious menu with excellent wine list. We ate here on one night and really enjoyed the personal service. All freshly prepared.

One of the best chiefs ever! The guy will serve you like no other, top echelon! On top of everything, opened up the restaurant 2 hours before the official opening, just because we were hungry! And that continued everyday 🤣🤭 thank you very much mr.Dinesh...More

Price is high but not so much so for the hotel of this category. Cusine is Sri Lankan based but gastronomic and refined. Lobsters were delicious, being delicatedly and perfectly cooked. Succulent is the word. As a matter of course, service is excellent.

Worth the money! 20% discount from hotel and you can get drinks from the AI so don't have to pay the expensive wine prices!
