The FortressResort in Koggala
Cape Weligama Resort, in southern Sri Lanka, is home to a gorgeous collection of 40 freestanding architect designed villas and suites. Infinite 270-degree panoramas of the Indian Ocean are celebrated from every curvaceous corner of this meticulously landscaped 12-acre Relais & Chateaux luxury resort, perched on a 36m cliff top. Innovative wining and dining venues hug the lofty cape and are complemented by a spectacular crescent-shaped infinity pool seamlessly merging with the ocean.
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 handpicked wines complement these extensive East to West menus. Honoring 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.
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’ or visit our dedicated Spa if you’d like to seek refuge from the family! Unwind with a blissful massage on your veranda, or with a fragrant scrub with organic homegrown Sri Lankan spices 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.
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 neighboring coves by kayak or learn to surf on Weligama’s legendary curls.
