Weligama Bay Resort

about weligama bay resort, weligama bay

The lovely Weligama Bay Resort was opened in November 2008 on a beach at the edge of secluded Weligama Bay, right on the southern tip of Sri Lanka. This quiet cove is often calm enough for swimming, snorkelling and surfing at any time of the year and is one of the best places in the world to spot blue whales.

Not only is this a marine lovers paradise, it provides great access to the historical port town of Galle and provincial Matara, as well as the amazing Sinharaja rainforest. With just 20 luxurious rooms, suites and villas, this is a great place to relax and enjoy your surroundings in sumptuous privacy.

This luxury lodge is the base for our incredible blue whale safari, which gives you the opportunity to swim with the enormous blue whales.
