Cape Weligama garden pool villa at dusk

Cape Weligama is setting the bar high for luxury hotels in Sri Lanka. Set in 12 acres of lush tropical gardens on a hilltop overlooking stunning views of the Indian Ocean as far as the eye can see, guests can stay in suites that are ideal for families and friends travelling together, or in villas with their own private swimming pools. Sumptuous, spacious suites are designed by one of Asia’s leading architects, Lek Bunnag. Each comes with a steam room and expansive bathroom as well as a private terrace in verdant surroundings, for those evenings you’d prefer to dine in a relaxed, private setting.

Go for a swim in the incredible infinity pool, or try an extensive range of activities within the region, including cliff-top yoga classes or a relaxing spa day with treatments incorporating local Ceylon tea into the ingredients. Explore the surrounding area from above by helicopter, or cycle to see the tea plantations and gain insightful tours of this significant element of Sri Lankan culture. Make the most of the world-famous surfing in the bay down below, or watch others give it a try as you enjoy a cocktail in the cliff-side Surf bar.

Fine dining options at Cape Weligama are far from limited. Guests can immerse themselves in Sri Lankan culture at the Kumbuk café, which serves a delightful Sri Lankan breakfast featuring local dishes and ingredients that you rarely find in most restaurants. Dine on the catch of the day inspired by contemporary Sri Lankan cuisine in the open-fronted sea-view restaurant, or opt for an intimate dining experience around the chef’s table. For those extra special moments, enjoy jaw-dropping views from the secluded cliff-top dining space where you will be served a degustation menu, exclusive to you.
