Nestled into the natural slopes of the headland, the Residences and Master Rooms create the welcoming illusion of a traditional village while stylish interiors reveal the largest and best appointed living quarters in Sri Lanka. The Master Rooms are situated around the Cove Pool and are well suited to families or groups of friends. Each Master Room has a beautifully furnished twin Queen bedroom and a spacious bathroom with stone bathtub and steam room.

The generously sized Residences feature terraces for relaxation or dining, and each has an exquisitely furnished king bedroom, large walk in wardrobe and bathroom with a separate area for the stone bathtub that opens out to the garden. Residences are set in groups of two or three within stone ringed gardens, each group sharing a 15 metre infinity edge swimming pool.

The Cape Weligama Residence, the most breath-taking accommodation in the resort, offers stunning Indian Ocean views from both bedrooms across two levels and a private 15 metre infinity pool on the upper level.



"Less is more" at Cape Weligama - by limiting menu choices, insisting on the use of the freshest local product and encouraging direct conversation between chefs and guests, the restaurants serves the finest ingredients available that day. De Mauny Dining Pavilion offers the catch of the day on its generous terraces and guests can eat with their hands Sri Lankan style at Kumbuk -a village-style restaurant. For dinner with view, try Rouge, the steak house & grill, dramatically poised at the cliff edge, with nothing but azure expanse as far as the eye can see.



The 60m crescent-shaped infinity pool appears to flow seamlessly into the shimmering sea, while the generous cove pool meanders around a 20m lap pool – perfect for families. Indoor, the Cybex equipped gym provides air-conditioned facilities for an invigorating holiday workout.

Enjoy movie nights and international sports fixtures with themed snacks and drinks on a giant screen at The Moon Bar or try a variety of water sports, from kayaking and snorkelling to surfing and diving. The resort offers private sunset cruises, big game fishing, seasonal whale and dolphin watching excursions and banana boating.



For the ultimate indulgence, unwind with some traditional Ceylonese pampering – either in villa or in Spa. Home grown Sri Lankan spice scrubs relieve stress, while bespoke, essential oil massages are renowned for their calming properties. Whatever the choice, it’s guaranteed to be blissful.
