To us, Cape Weligama is undoubtedly a sparkling gem on the Island of Jewels. Perched atop a cliff with stunning views of Weligama Bay, this splendid resort harbours just 39 intimate suites and villas amidst lush and serene grounds. Privacy and a grand sense of space are afforded by some extremely posh accommodations that boast cavernous interiors and verandahs, plush furnishings and even a spacious steam bath in every room. Butler service here is competent and heartfelt, and smiles flow from staff to staff like a human patchwork of warm welcome. Right before the edge of the cliff is a crescent gem christened the Moon Pool. Set for the endless cycles of unforgettable sunrise and sunsets that play out each day, this infinity pool ranks amongst the most spectacular in the world. A dip here is in itself a most Ceylonese treat.

GOURMET AND WELLNESS
A full spa is now being built on the resort grounds and we look forward to its completion with high hopes and anticipation. As the owner of Cape Weligama also owns the world renowned Dilmah Tea, high tea served each afternoon at Cape Colony Club with an excellent selection of fine blends is not to be missed.
