Healthy options will be available in each of the restaurants at Blue Waters, allowing guests to enjoy delicious cuisine alongside family and friends who are not taking part in the programme. Contact us for further information about the Living Retreat, which will run from May to October 2017 and 2018. In conjunction with this programme, a special single rate will be available during Summer 2017 for single occupancy rooms.
The resort feels luxurious and special but is also relaxed and laid back at the same time. There are a number of watersports on offer on the main beach and with 2 other coves to choose from it's really easy to find you own space to chill out. With a variety of accommodations to suit all, from interconnecting rooms for families up to the luxurious Rock Cottage (truly wow!), this property really does have something for everyone. I particularly enjoyed the Cove Suites as each block has it's own pool and offers stunning sea views, even from the bath!Dining is a treat, with the Cove Restaurant coming out top, but also enjoyed a relaxed lunch at the Palm - you certainly won't be disappointed. Offering a kids club, a fantastic spa, live bands and sporting activities all within easy reach of St Johns, Blue Waters really is paradise!
