The spirit of Weligama
A gorgeous village-style environment gazes out to the pristine Indian Ocean; each butler-attended contemporary villa nestles within a flower-scented watta (garden), just a mere dive away from a blissful cooling pool. A short meander away, sun kissed stretches of sand and a crescent-shaped, cliff-edge infinity pool boasts sweeping panoramas. It is no wonder that Cape Weligama has become the most celebrated, revered resort among Sri Lankan Beach fronts. Frolic in the sensational waters and swim and snorkel in the aquamarine bay beneath Cape Weligama. Intrepidly explore neighbouring coves by kayak, or learn to surf on Weligama’s legendary curls. Thirty minutes east of Galle, Cape Weligama inhabits 12 manicured acres atop a singular promontory rising 40 metres above the Indian Ocean. Stunning views await you, naturally complementing the 39 private retreats designed by one of Asia’s most celebrated architects, Lek Bunnag. A gourmet paradise, allow your taste buds to explore the multiple restaurants that set the bar for fine dining in Sri Lanka. Weligama’s iconic sunsets, are magnificent to view from the infinity pool that appears to flow seamlessly into the shimmering sea.
What we love about Weligama
- Savour mouth-watering fare at the Ocean Grill Steakhouse & Grill, dramatically poised at the cliff edge, with nothing but azure expanse as far as the eye can see.
- Indulge in a ‘spa day’, with organic homegrown Sri Lankan spice scrubs made from clove, nutmeg, sweet orange and sandalwood relieve stress and naturally attend to travel weary muscles while bespoke, essential oil massage blends incorporate Ceylon tea, which is renowned for its antioxidant, anti-ageing and calming properties.
- Cape Weligama’s luxury catamaran redefines whale watching in Mirissa, taking you beyond the bay area to open waters, making it an experience that must be on your to-do list!
