I was given a extremely warm welcome by the staff of the Blue Water Beach Resort at Wadduwa, Sri Lanka. Wadduwa is 27 km from Colombo and on the south west of Sri Lanka; much laid back but a paradise for sea lovers. You can reach Wadduwa by train, car or bus. The Blue Water Beach Resort is a paradise hidden between lush coconut plantations and facing the Indian Ocean. The beach at Wadduwa is a stripe of golden powdery sands with crystal clear, shimmering water. The Blue Water Beach Resort was designed by renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa and is about 16 years old and with about 100 rooms of which 40 are suites. Water is the recurrent theme of the hotel and it lives up to its name Blue Water – cascading fountains, ponds and waterways dot the exterior of the hotel, and there is a giant swimming pool winding through the lobby area and to the nicely manicured gardens! The hotel is said to be in full occupancy almost throughout the year.
