We‘ve been to many resorts in Asia. This is definitely one of the best. Just perfect for couples (maybe not so much for children due to location on a hill, Beach access not so easy). Wonderful service, incredible food, great place to be, full points.

Not sure how this hotel could improve 2nd visit but standards even in very difficult times have not dropped at all the rooms are spacious and kept spotlessly clean ours serviced by a smiling Isuru The hotel offers dining at ocean terrace restaurant over looking the lovely bay for breakfast lunch and dinner it was here we met Senith who provided the absolute best service for most of our meals helping my wife's coeliac choices of food and remembering our orders from other days really helped to settle in Le Tableau is another dining option that involves a chef cooking a meal directly in front of you a brilliant experience our chef Sohan talked us through all the preparation of each of 6 courses and he was obviously very talented and knowledgeable of everything Sri Lankan cuisine It is worth taking in the experience of cliff top dining if weather allows also a walk around the property seeing peacocks,monkeys the usual tree squirrels is a nice peaceful experience Finally having a WhatsApp contact is a great idea ours was Udith who provides advice when needed on any issues

We loved staying at cape Weligama. The resort is beautiful with an amazing ocean. Our pool suite villa was very spacious, clean with very comfortable beds and the pool had a perfect temperature. The food is delicious and the staff is very professional and kind especially at the restaurant. I also highly recommend the massages at the spa at the fitness center. Staying at Cape Weligama is the perfect place if you are willing to spend a relaxed family holiday in a relaxed and beautiful atmosphere !

We stayed five nights at Cape Weligama. The hotel is on a truly stunning cliff edge location with beautiful, spacious rooms and bathrooms. Due to the economic crisis, the hotel was fairly empty however the staff continued to be absolutely wonderful and the grounds of the hotel and rooms impeccable. Both swimming pools were lovely. The chef adapted the menu to suit us and the quality was fabulous. We also enjoyed many cocktails in the bar, playing chess or pool whilst overlooking the ocean. Thank you to the team for a truly wonderful, memorable and very relaxing visit.

This was our last stop of our honeymoon trip to Sri Lanka . And just wow. We got upgraded to one of the villas which was absolutely stunning. Every detail thought of and to a high standard. Every member of staff was so attentive, from the reception staff , the waiting staff which we felt like became our own personal staff. The concierge who was only at the end of a message for our every need and the manager that personally came to welcome us when we arrived. Food in the restaurant was outstanding, and they were more then happy to change anything on the menu to meet our needs . We booked the chef table as a special treat on our second night . The whole experience from beginning to end was exactly that , special. The food, the service , the chef chatted throughout the whole experience and made it a truly memorable evening. We will most definitely return to this hotel when we go back to Sri Lanka.
