Tucked away among the luscious foliage and paradise beaches of Batteaux Bay, Blue Waters Inn is a boutique hotel in Tobago that provides the ultimate escape from day-to-day life. This gorgeous beachfront property sits among 46 acres of lush tropical grounds and promises to connect guests with a blissful Caribbean lifestyle in a prime location.
Surrounded by nature, guests are free to experience life on the island at their own pace. Take to the water from the hotel’s own beach or jetty, to indulge in the warm, crystal-clear Caribbean sea, perfect for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking. Onsite dive instructors will guide you to the best dive sites, conveniently located right in front of the hotel, where you can swim among some of the world’s most vibrant and fascinating marine life.
Alternatively, you are welcome to simply soak up the sunshine on the floating sun deck! The turquoise waters and golden sands are certainly worth savouring.
The estate has a bountiful history, having been founded in 1830 and since gone through numerous transformations, from sugar plantation to animal sanctuary, bird-watching hotel to spearfishing school and even boy scouts camp. Today it stands in the form its owners believe it was always intended to take – an intimate resort sharing a truly unique Caribbean experience with guests.
This is the perfect Caribbean destination for groups of friends, families, nature lovers, diving aficionados, bird watchers and honeymooners.
The accommodation at Blue Waters Inn is inspired by island life, with simple, clean lines, sumptuous furnishings and delicately-carved hardwood furniture. All rooms are equipped with free Wi-Fi, HD satellite TV, coffee and tea facilities, en-suite with luxury toiletries and a private balcony or patio.
Blue Water hotel’s signature restaurant, Drift Deck, offers the best in traditional Tobago dining with a unique flair. Situated on the palm-fringed beachfront, the restaurant offers sweeping views of the Caribbean sea, twinkling in the sunlight or painted in colourful hues by sunset. From breakfast through to dinner, you can sample a range of classic Caribbean cuisine, such as the breakfast speciality Saltfish Buljol - a traditional Tobagonian seasoned cod fish served on a freshly roasted ‘bake’, or a range of freshly-caught and cooked seafood.
The hotel also boasts two bars, where you can relax and chat to locals in a chilled-out, very Caribbean atmosphere. Enjoy local beers, fresh cocktails and, of course, Tobago rum!
Activities and Entertainment
Whilst diving is undoubtedly the prime activity in Tobago, those who prefer to keep their feet dry can still explore the aquatic depths with a glass-bottom boat tour, where you may spot everything from parrot fish to sea fans. Those looking for an adventure should try kayaking out to Goat Island, where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Speyside coast.
Back on land, guests can explore the stunning natural surroundings of Trinidad and Tobago by hiking along one of countless fascinating nature trails, whether heading through the jungle or along the stunning coastline. Or to learn more about the natural wonders of the island, embark on one of the hotel’s Waterfall Tours, where you will be taken to the impressive three-tiered Argyle Falls - the highest cascades on the island with serene pools to swim in at its base.
Chocolate lovers will love the chance to explore Tobago Cocoa Estate, a heritage park where visitors can discover the rich history of cocoa in Tobago, and even get involved in fermenting and drying the beans. Afterwards, don’t miss the evening dinner and rum and chocolate tasting session to try the island’s famous exports straight from the source.
Tobago is something of a birdwatching hotspot, with over 200 species of birds living in the island. Birdwatching is one of the hotel’s most popular activities, and you will be delighted to see countless vibrant birds throughout the 46 acres of gardens, such as the cobalt-blue Mot Mot, or the precocious Bannaquit, and even the regal Cocrico. Blue Waters Inn is located just opposite Bird of Paradise island, a nature sanctuary since 1926, the perfect place to experience the natural bounty of Tobago first-hand.
Blue Waters Inn offers all of the essential facilities you would expect any luxury resort, pared down to reflect the laid-back pace and attitude of Caribbean life.
Visit the expansive swimming pool to sunbathe or take a relaxing dip, or head out to the tennis courts for an invigorating game with your loved one.
Come evening, spend a few hours unwinding in the resort’s two bars and restaurant, listening to uplifting local music.
From the deep blue of the Atlantic to the brilliant green of Tobago’s lush hills, Blue Waters Inn enjoys a picture-perfect location that will make for a great family holiday.
The resort’s extensive grounds attract many birds and there is easy access to Tobago’s protected Main Ridge forest reserve, Little Tobago, which children, in particular, will be fascinated by and love.
Blue Waters Inn is located in Batteaux Bay, Speyside, a 75-minute transfer from Crown Point International Airport.
