Welcome to

Weligama Luxury clifftop resort in Sri Lanka

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 our 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 our 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.

Curating Meaningful Journeys

Our values and vision are inspired by our Founders, the Fernando family, who believe that business is a matter of human service. Our portfolio of resorts are located in scenic and environmentally sensitive areas, enabling us to drive our sustainability agenda across Climate Action, Land & Sea and People & Culture.

Cape Weligama is an oceanfront resort spanning across 12 acres of tropical garden. With five of the World’s seven species of sea turtles nesting along this coastline and a migration channel for blue and sperm whales a mere mile offshore, our resort is a cetacean enthusiast’s paradise. A historic fishing village, much of the local community is heavily dependent on fisheries and marine-based tourism activities for their livelihood. Whether you’d like to indulge in the rich cultural heritage or surf Weligama’s famous waves, Cape Weligama provides the most idyllic setting.


Our Villas and Suites

Nestled into the natural slopes atop Cape Weligama’s striking headland, a collection of 39 Suites and Villas create the welcoming illusion of a traditional Sri Lankan village. Yet beneath local terracotta-tiled rooftops, stylish interiors unfold as generously sized contemporary living quarters, surrounded by tropical gardens, named after a distinguished explorer or writer whose historic Ceylon journey captures the spirit of Cape Weligama. All accommodations enjoy a large terrace with dining and in-room spa facilities, spacious walk-in wardrobes, Sonos wireless audio, handmade Ophir toiletries, a steam room & large bathrooms with twin vanities and a stone tub.


Discover the Gateway to the South

From guided tours of historic Galle Fort, to private whale watching and ocean adventures, Cape Weligama promises to immerse you into the beating heart of Sri Lanka’s famed Southern Coast.
