Resort Introduction by The General Manager

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, Cape Weligama has become the most celebrated resort along this fabled island's palm-fringed shores. Thirty minutes east of Galle, Cape Weligama inhabits 12 manicured acres atop a singular promontory rising 40 metres above the Indian Ocean. Stunning panoramas await you, naturally complementing the 39 private retreats designed by one of Asia's most celebrated architects, Lek Bunnag. The hotel’s dining venues capture Weligama's iconic sunsets, as does the 60-meter 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.While a diverse range of activities are on offer, from scuba diving to surfing lessons and lake kayaking to rice paddy bicycling, you may find the greatest pleasure in simply unwinding on your private shaded terrace.

Resort Highlights

Highlight

An intimate, “chef’s-table” style dining experience. Sit around one of our three experienced chefs as they guide you through a degustation menu that is as creative as it is delicious. Chef’s Table is a Cape’s signature dining experience and delivers a fascinating narrative about each chef’s style, inspiration and food philosophy to accompany a one-of-a-kind meal. All meals are 5 courses, and the curated menus are defined by each of our chef’s own style, inspiration and passion – it is an extremely personal experience. Gastronomy, art, and performance combine for one of the most unique dining experiences in Southern Sri Lanka.
