Weligama is very traditional, however, you can find many international standard restaurants and bars locally. It is also convenient to animal parks, whale watching at Mirissa with access to Colombo via the highway which is only 10 minutes away.
Getting around
Walking, cycling and tuc tucs are great locally. For longer trips, our staff are happy to assist organise a local car or van with driver. Taking the train is also gorgeous if you have time and romance in you.
