if you want to have a peaceful break, this is the place
Everything was perfect for us. Great people, good food, nice swimming pool, clean, peaceful and more. Kids friendly place as well. Perfect vacation for family, but it would be better for couples to have a romantic vacation.
The service is friendly and yet professional. The food is fantastic with a range of local specialties and more continental dishes. Accommodation is very well maintained and appointed with quality furniture. Everything is on point!
A tremendous resort
This is an outstanding resort in every respect. The service is faultless - it is highly professional, warm and responsive to the needs of the individual. All staff go out of their way to help and nothing is too much trouble. All aspects of the resort are designed beautifully, with the greatest attention to detail, from the gardens, to the pools, to the rooms, to the restaurants. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. I highly recommend Cape Weligama.
Spectacular views, accommodation , food and service at one of best hotels in Sri Lanka
I’ve had a villa in Sri Lanka near Galle for nearly 20 years, traveling to and from London , so I’ve rarely needed hotels here except for the stopovers in Colombo or the odd trips to the beach or Kandy. I was aware of Resplendent’s reputation as one of the best luxury hotel groups here, but had never stayed in one until the covid pandemic hit and 14 days quarantine was obligatory. Boy is their reputation deserved- they have just got it right. They obviously really understand what makes Sri Lanka such a special and uniquely beautiful country. We ( my wife Kristy and I) left Yala Tented lodge last week to stay in their sister hotel Cape Weligama. Although it’s a completely different experience from Yala it still has the same exceptional standards of service, food, design and accommodation. The views from anywhere in the hotel are literally breathtaking - the sunsets- out of this world. Even though it’s a large hotel , it’s serene and expansive gardens make it feel like a small luxurious village. The half moon pool is possibly the most beautiful in the world- certainly that i’ve ever seen. This hotel would be equally as suitable for a romantic break, a family holiday, business trip, or in our case - the best way to make the most out of being quarantined! Special mention must go to all the staff here- particularly Sheehan our designated butler who just did everything he could to help, to Nadeem and Suranga in the restaurant who attended every need, Udara the chef who we trusted to make us whatever he wished- which was always exceptionally tasty and creative, Roshan and Arul the hotel management who greeted us on arrival and were constantly attentive and helpful. So hats off to Resplendent- they obviously run a great ship- even in these very challenging, tough times. We’ve not stayed at their 3rd hotel Tea Trails, but definitely will next visit. They understand Sri Lanka better than anyone else- you don’t feel like you’re in chain like Four Seasons/ Hilton that’s generic... but you get the luxury treatment of those 5stars plus a real taste of Sri Lanka’s wonderful culture, food and people. It’s not cheap- but it’s worth every penny.
I had a wonderful experience at Cape Weligama . Every staff member I encountered, from the valet to the check- in to the cleaning staff were delightful and eager to help. . They all go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. The food was delectable and the chefs were very accommodating. The property is Gorgeous, with breathtaking Views. The villas Are spectacular and come with high quality butler service. I had an amazing experience at the cape. Can’t wait to go back
