Cape Weligama, in southern Sri Lanka, is home to a gorgeous collection of 39 freestanding residences and master rooms. 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.
Located on the beach, the restaurant offers local and international specialities, as well as seafood dishes. Guests can dine at the open-air terrace or choose air-conditioned indoor seating. High tea and freshly baked pies are available in the afternoons.
Weligama Bay Resort is a 3-hour drive from Bandaranaike International Airport. The resort makes a blissful coastal retreat after a stay at sister property Ceylon Tea Trails, set in Sri Lanka's beautiful hill country. Air taxis operate between the two.
