This new resort promises to be one of Sri Lanka’s most luxurious getaways.


Located on Sri Lanka’s southern coast, Cape Weligama boasts 40 individual villas and suites with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean and landscaped 12-acre estate. Private butler services, a fitness centre, and bespoke dining and spa facilities are available to all guests, and the 60m, crescent-shaped, cliff-top infinity pool commands unparalleled views of the cape and pristine sandy coastline.

Cape Weligama is the second hotel from Resplendent Ceylon, and the company’s aim is to offer upscale travellers an authentic experience of Sri Lanka’s history, culture, and nature.

Like its sister property Tea Trails, which is located towards the southwest of the island, Sri Lanka’s tea tradition influences many aspects of the hospitality experience. Lectures on the history of Ceylon tea are offered to guests, and tea-based spa treatments are also available at the resort. These include the glow facial, which uses home-made tea-based products to hydrate the skin, and massage oils infused with green and black tea.

The resort is firmly focused on offering guests innovative gourmet dining that makes the most of local ingredients, including, of course, Ceylon tea. Typical dishes include caramelised banana served with Earl Grey-infused dark chocolate sauce and peppermint tea parfait, and tea-infused oyster mushroom soup with prawns. The estate’s elegant ocean-view Taylor Pavilion is the perfect spot for a traditional Ceylon high tea.
