Originally known as Blue Waters Beach Hotel, the resort first opened its doors in 1960 as a sixteen-bedroom hotel.

Blue Waters was first run by Osmond Kelsick, who had the distinction of being the only Antiguan squadron leader in the Royal Air Force in World War II.

By 1984, Blue Waters had expanded to 45 rooms when it was sold to Ronald Randall, an entrepreneur from England who fell in love with the resort after staying there many times with his family.
