Weligama Bay Resort is a very cosy little hotel in the centre of the bay in the small town of Weligama. Friendly staff and big breakfasts (if not the tastiest in the world) made this a very comfortable 3 night stay, the hotel has great access to the beach where surfing is a must. However if you are planning on...

Not a bad hotel but please do not rent their surf equipment. It is old and has been repaired badly then if a fin drops out they overcharge. The manager does not stick to his word!!!! Walk down the beach and hire from there, we found the blue bay very helpful cheaper and much better equipment
