 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, Cape Weligama has become the most celebrated resort along this fabled island's palm-fringed shores.  
The golden sun rising from the east. The morning calling of the peacocks. The rolling ocean below. The coconut trees swaying to the salty breeze. Pause and reset. From the palm-fringed shores, tropical gardens, and pampering villas and suites that blend into the headland, Cape Weligama is your own slice of paradise. The gateway to southern Sri Lanka envelops you in a world of culture, community and cuisine. 
Cape Weligama is a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux association of unique hotels and restaurants owned and operated by independent entrepreneurs – most often families – who are passionate about their craft and deeply committed to forging warm, lasting relationships with their guests.

Photos of Cape Weligama 



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. Nearby, the slender white Dondra Lighthouse, built by the British in 1890, marks this island’s southernmost tip. Standing shoulder to shoulder with Weligama, is Mirissa. The area is often referred to synonymously, as the two towns are situated on the opposite sides of the Weligama Bay. 


The collection of Suites and Villas create the welcoming ambience of a traditional Sri Lankan village. Terracotta-tiled roofs, expansive outdoor verandas and manicured tropical gardens give way to contemporary living quarters with stylish interiors inspired by the island’s prominent maritime heritage. 


The resort’s restaurants set the bar for fine dining in Sri Lanka. From elevated clifftop locations with panoramic Indian Ocean views, an intimate, 'chef's table' style dining experience at Tableau to a traditional heritage breakfast, every dining experience honours the deep roots connecting Cape Weligama to the island’s rich history.
