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. 

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Comprising a total of 40 spacious and elegantly designed apartments and suites, this gorgeous resort provides spectacular coastal views alongside a whole host of impressive facilities to keep guests happy. Designed by the critically-acclaimed Thai architect Lek Bunnag, Cape Weligama Resort is nestled into the rolling hills on the very southern tip of Sri Lanka, and the views from each room over the jagged cliffs across the vast Indian Ocean are simply breathtaking. The residences are tastefully designed with traditional patterns, artwork and the surrounding tropical gardens are in keeping with the home-grown feel to the resort. Entry level residences here particular generous in size, and total floor space is doubled across the lavish duplexes. Away from the rooms, the resort presents a fine array of wining and dining options, including the highly-recommended ‘De Mauny’ restaurant. Alongside an on-site spa for pampering next to the sea, the resort has a crescent-shaped infinity swimming pool with 270-degree views across the dramatic shoreline of this stunning region of Sri Lanka.
