Cape Weligama boasts what is likely the best infinity pool in Sri Lanka! A breathtaking crescent-shaped Moon Pool curving 60m around the cape’s summit drinks in every inch of the spectacular 270-degree coastal views. It’s equally resplendent at night when the pool’s inky surface reflects the stars and the bright luminescence of the moon.
The generous Cove Pool, close to the Suites, meanders around an integrated 20m-lap pool, and is ideal for kids. The Surf Bar – secreted under the Moon Pool – erects a large screen on occasion to host convivial movie nights with popcorn and international sports fixtures with special themed snacks and drinks.
Hotel facilities also include a Cybex equipped air-conditioned gym for keeping in shape after overindulging on the resort’s mouth-watering cuisine. Electric buggies convey guests around the resort if they prefer not to walk.
There are two adjacent public beaches. West Beach is accessed via a specially built cliff staircase. East Beach is next to the Sports Centre, a 5-minute walk from the resort. A reef provides safe swimming conditions. With no large resorts nearby, the beaches are not busy. The Sports Centre is staffed by professionals and is the embarkation point for all land and water-based activities. Offering first-rate PADI dive courses and exciting dives, other activities include private cruises, big game fishing, seasonal whale and dolphin-watching trips and banana boating.
