Cape Weligama Resort

Why We Love This Hotel :

Location: Perched on the very southern tip of Sri Lanka, the views here are nothing short of superb, stretching across the dramatic coastline and into the vast Indian Ocean.

History: Having recently opened in 2014, this much-talked-about resort overlooks the same waters that carried explorers such as Marco Polo and Ibn Battuta around the southern edge of the island.

Service: Sri Lankans are known for their warm hospitality and things are no different at this highly recommended hotel, with a helpful 24-hour reception desk to satisfy even the most challenging of requests. 


Cape Weligama’s signature spa is the standout place here for ultimate pampering, although this five-star resort presents a range of other facilities to keep guests entertained when they’re not off exploring the superb surrounding countryside and coastal region.

Spa Service

Unlike most hotel spas where you to go to them, at Cape Weligama the service comes to you. Book ahead and you’ll soon have a knock at your own private residence, with trained therapists and masseuses bringing traditional Ceylonese treatments to the comfort of your own bed.

Swimming Pool

Although each residence here comes with its own private pool, the resort's main pool is just that little bit more spectacular, crescent in shape and offering 270-degree views across the Indian Ocean from the stunning infinity edge.

Water Sport Activities

Located so close to the southern Sri Lankan coast, it’s no surprise that this resort takes full advantage of its close proximity to the water. At reception you can hire a range of water sport equipment such as goggles or snorkels, and there’s even an on-site Dive Center offering guests the chance to take a PADI course.  


The seafood here is so fresh, they even have their own market where you can handpick your desired meal and have it cooked for you at their signature restaurant. There are a total of four drinking and dining options, many of which take advantage of the stunning ocean views and place a firm emphasis on traditional Sri Lankan flavors.

Pola Market and De Mauny Restaurant

Head on over to Polar (the Sinhalese work for ‘market’) and pick out what takes your fancy from the day’s fresh catch. Next stop is the ocean-facing De Mauny restaurant, where the talented in-house chefs will cook your food to order.

Taylor Pavilion

Taylor Pavilion is a quaint waterfront spot to enjoy the resort’s extensive range of local and imported wines. For early risers, try one of the local teas here instead, or sip a cocktail in the evening as the red sun sinks below the ocean horizon.
