Cape Weligama

 

Exquisite interiors, impeccable service and delicious food are the trademarks of Cape Weligama, the glossy south-coast sibling of Ceylon Tea Trails. Newly opened in late 2014, the resort covers 12 undulating acres of lofty, photo-worthy headland just outside the fishing village of Weligama, with stone paths leading down to the sandy coves below. The 40 suites and residences are classically stylish and wow you with their spaciousness, elegant custom-made furnishings and slick mod cons. And whether you’re relaxing on your terrace, dining in one of the 3 restaurants or swimming in one of several pools, you can be sure of a stunning view.

The flagship cape-top Moon Pool hugs the headland and seamlessly merges with the Indian Ocean. The sea-facing wining and dining outlets include an open-air pavilion, a lounge-bar and a cliff-edge teppanyaki restaurant, yet meals ‘at home’ are very much encouraged too. A calm and exclusive ambiance pervades throughout, and relaxation comes easily thanks to dedicated butlers who ferry you around by golf buggy, book excursions and in-room spa treatments, and arrange PADI courses, whale-watching and other activities at the on-site dive centre.

98 Acres – Ella

 

A passion and deep concern for the environment is reflected in the design and construction of 98 Acres Resort and Spa. The Eco-friendly concept and design has ensured that the majority of materials used in the construction have been recycled. ‘Illuk’ straw has been used liberally in the interior and thatching of the roofs to maintain cool temperatures, giving it a true Sri Lankan identity and elegance.
Discarded railway sleepers have been put to good use in the construction of decks, walls and furniture. The furniture has been made by expert artisans from the locality using local and widely available timber which helps create a warm and rustic atmosphere. Rough hewn granite rock lends a simple, hand crafted elegance to the look and feel of each villa. The golf buggies used in the transportation of guests within the hotel compound is a part of the Eco-friendly concept. The buggies operate on battery power, resulting in zero emissions and minimal sound pollution. A sustained effort at staying Eco-friendly, offering guests an out of the ordinary environment to unwind in will continue to be key attractions at 98 Acres Resort and Spa.
