Suite of the Week: the unbelievable Prestige Ocean Villa at Sri Lanka’s Cape Weligama


I’m certain you’ve heard of Sri Lanka’s Cape Weligama! I mean, after all, it is one of the country’s most celebrated beach resorts. Dotted alongside one of the nation’s white-washed beaches Cape Weligama’s impressive 12-acre property is perched 40 metres above the Indian Ocean.


A member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux group, the award-winning property entitles you to a plethora of culinary options. I simply loved the private library on site. If you happen to swing by the resort for your next weekend getaway, I’d urge you to stay in their Prestige Ocean Villa.

If you have a penchant for luxury, I’d undoubtedly recommend the Prestige Ocean Villa. Spanning 180 sq metres and entailing immaculate detailing, this villa is my preferred choice when it comes to villas across Sri Lanka’s boutique hotels.


Of course, your villa entitles you to unprecedented views of the Indian Ocean, right from your spacious verandah while you sip on some local Ceylon tea. My favourite element of the villa is its colossal king bedroom with lavish furnishings and marble-clad bathroom.

Indeed your villa also entails a separate living room and an intimate bar and well, what’s a bar without your personal butler concocting some intriguing cocktails. Think round-the-clock sunbeds, lounge chairs and a steam room in your villa.

Once you step outside your lap of luxury, you can take advantage of the property’s generous offerings! From surfing lessons and scuba-diving to lake kayaking and rice paddy bicycling. If that doesn’t excite you, I’d bet a leopard safari does. Did I forget to mention the 15m infinity semi-private swimming pool shared with either one or two other villas?
