Cape Weligama features in Ampersand's Top 10 Swimming Pools
Set on the southern coast just 30 minutes east of the historic town of Galle, Cape Weligama is a luxury resort which launched in September 2014. The brand is already highly regarded for their beautiful Ceylon Tea Trails in the hilly interior of the island and, with the addition of Cape Weligama, their properties will offer a unique and luxurious trail across Sri Lanka. Cape Weligama is perfectly positioned for 270-degree scenery of the Indian Ocean, backed by a palm-covered headland and set within 12 acres of landscaped gardens – undoubtedly one of the best positions along this coastline. The property’s style and architecture reflects Sri Lanka’s rich history and culture yet blends flawlessly with smart and contemporary design. There are just 40 suites and villas – the stand-alone villas are fashioned to replicate a traditional Sri Lankan village with terracotta-tiled roofs; interiors are spacious and flooded with light and have incredible sea views. The resort has a crescent shaped cliff-top infinity pool, three dining options, in-villa spa experiences, a gym, a Kid’s Club and a Dive Centre.
A trademark of the Tea Trails brand is their personalised service and we are extremely excited that this level of care and attention is being taken to this stunning coastal setting, a quick hop from Galle!
