    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    Hugging the rugged coastline on Sri Lanka’s southern coast, Cape Weligama offers 40 free-standing villas and suites amid a glorious cliff-top setting to the west of Weligama Bay. Only 30 minutes’ drive from the cultural centre of Galle, the resort is reminiscent of a traditional Sri Lankan village, where terracotta-roofed villas are spread over 12 acres of landscaped gardens. At the eastern and western fringes of the resort’s grounds, guests have direct access to two beaches – one a popular swimming beach protected by reef, the other a quieter spot for secluded paddles. Snorkelling and diving opportunities are great here, with a PADI diving centre offering qualified tuition. For the resort’s most spectacular views, the rust-red cliffs are topped with Cape Weligama’s one-of-a-kind crescent-shaped infinity pool, the Moon Pool, which is served by the pool bar for daytime relaxation. Smaller infinity pools are deposited evenly among the villas and suites for added privacy. Individually named after famous Ceylon explorers and writers, the accommodation types are divided by size into Wattas and Walauwas. The latter are the resort’s most indulgent offering; their name means ‘mansion’ and they are organised around a children’s fun pool to the east of the grounds. Each villa is generous in size and decorated in a style that prioritises comfort, while indulgent additions include a private butler service, bespoke dining and spa facilities. The in-room spa service includes massages on the veranda, bath rituals and steam baths. There are three restaurants at Cape Weligama for those who prefer to dine among company, including the Dining Pavilion’s Pola, a seafood market, and the Japanese offering of Misaki. Cape Weligama is a superb option for indulgent villa-only luxury in close proximity to Weligama and the attractions of Galle in southern Sri Lanka.
