We discovered the luxurious W15 Hotel nestled amongst the idyllic fishing village of Weligama on Sri Lanka's picturesque South Coast... just under 2 hours drive, from Colombo International Airport.
W15 is absolute beachfront and brand new. The sandy beach straight out the front stretches both ways for hundreds and hundreds of metres. Safe for beginners and receiving swell all year round, there are good quality banks that will hold great waves for experienced surfers under the right conditions. Stroll up or down to beach to surf an uncrowded bank or watch the famous stilt fishing men do their thing.
Keep in mind, Weligama is much more than a great surf spot with the classic sandy, sunny beach atmosphere. Surrounded by rubber and coconut plantations, ancient temples, spice gardens and National Parks, Weligama is the ideal starting point for excursions along Sri Lanka's South and West Coast.
Here are the W15 facts. It's a ten room luxury hotel with 45 metres of direct beach frontage with surf right out front. It offers contemporary living spaces with a twist of funky flavor. The open-air restaurant has a 13m long bar with stunning views of the Indian Ocean and Weligama Bay. It has an infinity pool and a large decked area with sunbeds and cabanas - a very inviting option after a day surfing, day tripping or adventuring into Southern Sri Lanka's National Parks. We wholeheartedly recommend adding W15 Hotel to your Sri Lankan itinerary. See for yourself...
