Cape Weligama Signature Ocean Safari

Personalised Wellness

The design of the villas and suites, our coastline, and the balmy rural vibe of southern Sri Lanka create the canvas for a wide selection of wellness options for our guests. We broadly categorize them into options linked to rest and relaxation and active-based.

Rural Bike Ride

Take a ride through the leafy, scenic back-roads of a typical southern village that lies inland from Weligama. The trail snakes its way alongside lush rice paddies, rubber and cinnamon estates, small-holder plantations and home gardens, places of worship, rural homes.

Chefs Table

An intimate, "chefs table" style dining experience. Sit around one of our three experienced chefs as they guide you through a degustation menu that is as creative as it is delicious.

The faces of the Galle Fort

The walk focuses on the host’s experience of growing up in the Galle Fort and presenting it not as a tourist attraction, but an extension of his “home” – a home filled with history, heritage, cultural integration and soul.

Junior Chef

We have a collection of yummy, interactive and immersive culinary experiences for kids with a local twist, tailored for various age levels. Kids enjoy making the local favourite “coconut and treacle pancakes”, or coconut and cinnamon cookies.

Kids Crafts and Adventure

Southern Sri Lanka is famous for arts and crafts, and our adventure centre offers a world of option for active families. Island Colours replicates our famous “batik” craft by painting colourfully on fabric to make home-made shawls, sarongs etc. (great gift for parents!).

Kumbuk Cafe

A must-try Cape Weligama breakfast option to immerse guests into traditional Sri Lankan cuisine. The menu is designed for the traveller who is curious about authentic local fare and isn't shy about being ravenous.

Visits to Historic Sites and points of interest
