Weligama Bay Resort
Ranked #7 of 14 Hotels in Weligama
Reviewed August 19, 2010

We stayed on WBR for 6 nights and it was just great! The rooms are very large and are well designed with wooden furnitures. Our beach front villa was just 10 meters from the beach and from the sweeming pool.

This hotel has only around 20 rooms so even when it was full it is not crowded. The beach is great, and the hotel rents surfboards (the see is very rough, though).

The manager is from the Czech repblic and you feel that in evey aspect - he is always around for anything, and the staff are well trained. this means that after the rooms is cleaned, it is really clean, shampoo and soap is always filled/replaced etc.

here is an example : in most hotels we stayed, there were always problems with the Wifi - broken, forgot the passwords, works only in reception area etc. On WBR I told the reception staff that I cant get the signal, and immidiately was given a range extender to plug in the network socket of my villa!

This may seem obvious, and it should, but it is not the case in Sri Lanka, where the Hotel staff tend to round up the corners......

So if you are down south - WBR is a very good place with excellent value.

Need to be improved: add some sport activities. Otherwise beach is huge and nice.It is a quite place to stay for few days but may be too long for 1 week unless you organize cultural visit.

This was my first trip to the Weligama Bay resort. It was a memorable stay, the location was excellent, very scenic view. The restaurant was good and pool being close to beach was handy.
The rooms were spacious and very clean. The toilets were of style. The staff were friendly and helpful.

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic time in Weligama Bay Resort. We could not have asked for anything more from Management and Staff. The whole resort is wonderful, quiet, clean and restful, the food is just super! We cannot thank everyone there enough. The view of the Indian ocean is breathtaking, the food is fantastic and the management and staff are worth their weight in gold. To Matuš and Alena, thank you for your hospitality and the wonderful company you gave us. You were so proffesional and just wonderful and you made our stay the most enjoyable experience we have had. You are both very down to earth people and we appreciate that. Roshan, thank you for doing such a great job in the restaurant, we enjoyed the local meals so much. We can't wait to come back one day. What a great place! We recommend this resort to everyone who is looking for the best accommodation in Sri Lanka!
