Thirty minutes east from the 400 years old Dutch colonial Galle Fort, Cape Weligama is set on 12 manicured acres atop a singular promontory rising 36 metres above the Indian Ocean. Stunning panoramas naturally complement all 40 private Residences and Villas designed by one of Asia’s most celebrated architects, Lek Bunnag.
The resort resembles the welcoming illusion of a traditional Sri Lankan Village, with terracota-tiled roof retreats featuring stylish interiors that unfold as generously sized contemporary living quarters between 130 m2 and 307 m2, each one surrounded by manicured garden. All accommodations overlook the Indian Ocean, with private butler services, individual gardens, dining and spa facilities.
An array of international dinning venues is awaiting for its guests to enjoy the Wligama's most breathtaking sunsets as does the 60-metre crscent-shaped infinity pool that appear to flow seeamlesly into the shimmering sea.A gourmet paradise, Cape Weligama pays homage to its location with the day’s freshest catch selected by you at Pola (the Sinhalese word for ‘market’)’ and cooked to order in the ocean facing De Mauny restaurant. Eat with your hands, Sri Lankan style, at Kumbuk, a casual open-air spot showcasing this island’s unique and spicy curries. Opt for authentic teppanyaki at Misaki, dramatically poised at the cliff’s edge, with nothing but azure expanse.Taylor Pavilion provides a relaxed yet refined venue for traditional Ceylon high tea, as well as to linger over sunset cocktails and after dinner nightcaps under the stars. A fully equipped, air-conditioned gym lets guests keep in shape amidst this paradise.
For the ultimate Ceylonese indulgence, Cape Weligama’s experienced therapists come to your Residence or Villa where dedicated spa facilities allow us to pamper you ‘at home’.
