Welcome to Cape Weligama

Where trade winds carried legendary explorers like Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta and Fa-Hsien past Sri Lanka’s soaring southern cliffs on some of history’s most celebrated nautical journeys, October 1st marked the opening of the most anticipated resort yet along this fabled island’s palm fringed shores. Thirty minutes east of Galle, Cape Weligama inhabits 12 manicured acres atop a singular promontory rising 36 metres above the Indian Ocean. Stunning panoramas naturally complement all 40 private retreats designed by one of Asia’s most celebrated architects, Lek Bunnag. An array of international dining venues captures Weligama’s iconic sunsets, as does the 60-metre crescent-shaped infinity pool that appears to flow seamlessly into the shimmering sea, while those timeless breezes ensure elegant swells unfurl onto the sun kissed sand.

High tea at Cape Weligama

Designed by acclaimed Thai architect Lek Bunnag and strategically nestled into the natural slopes atop Weligama's striking headland, a collection of private Residences and Villas; offering 40 bedrooms in all, create the welcoming illusion of a traditional Sri Lankan village. Yet beneath local terracotta-tiled rooftops, stylish interiors unfold as generously sized contemporary living quarters between 130 m2 and 307 m2, each one surrounded by manicured garden. The Cape Weligama Residence, our most breath-taking accommodation at 307 m2, offers stunning Indian Ocean views from both bedrooms across two levels and the 15-metre infinity pool on the upper level. All accommodations overlook the Indian Ocean, with private butler services, individual gardens, dining and spa facilities.

Emerald hues of the coconut palm frond dappled headlands meet the sapphire waters of the Indian Ocean here along this isle’s curvaceous southern stretch. Just off the craggy coast, sarong clad fishermen perch acrobatically on their wooden stilts. Centuries old stone carved temples dot the lush undulating interior where elephants still inhabit the tropical jungle. A thirty-minute coastal drive leads to the massive granite ramparts of the 400-year-old Dutch colonial Galle Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and symbol of this region’s strategic importance to maritime history. Nearby, the slender white Dondra Lighthouse, built by the British in 1890, marks this island’s southernmost tip. Beyond, the vast cerulean sea churns unremittingly all the way to Antarctica.

Cape Weligama Cuisine

Cuisine

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 as far as the eye can fathom. The resort’s cellar of handpicked New and Old World wines complements these extensive East to West menus. Honouring the deep roots connecting Cape Weligama to this island’s rich history, the waterfront 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.

Ambiance

Sri Lanka’s most captivating Indian Ocean vistas, even from your bed, are just the first of every day’s revelations around this relaxed waterfront property. While a diverse range of activities are on offer year round, from surfing lessons, scuba diving and lake kayaking to rice paddy bicycling and even leopard safaris, many of our guests find the greatest pleasure in simply unwinding on their private shaded terraces, with a pot of freshly brewed, single origin Ceylon tea for which this fabled isle is rightly famous. Curl up with a novel from your residence’s private library, or amble barefoot to swim in your shimmering infinity pool. Dine on Western favourites or luscious Sri Lankan flavours anytime you like. Our wish is that you consider yourself at home along our headland.

Private Pampering

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’. Organic home grown 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, renowned for its antioxidant, anti-ageing and calming properties. Unwind with a blissful massage on your veranda, or with a fragrant scrub followed by an invigorating herbal steam treatment in your shower room and finally a sleep inducing soak in your stone bathtub, with your bed just steps away.

Features

Our crescent-shaped infinity Moon Pool curves an expansive 60 metres around the cape’s edge, taking in sweeping, 270-degree blue views. Alongside, stone pathways lead down to secluded coves where turtles flap about in the crystal-clear shallows. Gaze into the azure distance where Weligama’s iconic stilt fishermen balance on slender poles and whales breach the Indian Ocean’s seemingly endless horizon. A fully equipped, air-conditioned gym lets guests keep in shape amidst this paradise. The ample Cove Pool offers plenty of splashing space for our youngest guests to frolic safely.VIEW RESORT MAP

Activities

Postcard perfect beaches, gently breaking waves and a kaleidoscopic underwater landscape sprinkled with historic wrecks, Sri Lanka’s southern coastline does not lack for magnetic charms. Swim and snorkel in the aquamarine bay beneath Cape Weligama. Explore neighbouring coves by kayak or learn to surf on Weligama’s legendary curls. The Dive Centre, staffed by an experienced international team of professionals, offers a comprehensive range of PADI dive courses and other off shore activities including private sunset cruises, big game fishing, seasonal whale and dolphin-watching trips and banana boating. Take a boat or kayak out on nearby Koggala Lake, its tranquil lagoon edged by fragrant cinnamon gardens and tropical wildlife.

Excursions

For adventures further afield, dedicated naturalists and cultural guides are on hand to whisk you off in private vehicles for personalised tours. Must see destinations include Mirissa’s vibrant boat harbour, Matara’s crumbling ruins and the historic Galle Fort where cobbled streets encased in coral and granite walls reveal ochre washed colonnaded houses, colonial churches, and renowned jewellery boutiques. Elephants, sloth bears, crocodiles, and even Sri Lanka’s famous leopards may be spotted on day trips to the national parks of Uda Walawe and Yala.
