Why we recommend Cape Weligama, Sri Lanka

The hotel Cape Weligama in southern Sri Lanka is a high-end resort with huge rooms, gourmet food, a dive center, and 270-degree ocean views. The impeccably presented rooms and villas are very large - more like mini-houses - and come with all modern amenities. The crescent-shaped Moon Pool is beautiful by day and brilliantly luminescent at night, thus making it a great destination for honeymooners. However, this property is also great for families as there is a host of interconnecting rooms, a kids’ menu, and even an ice cream trolley that trundles along with the family-friendly cove pool.
