Ranked #3 Resort in Asia and amongst Best Resorts in the World.
Sri Lanka, 5 October 2022 – Now in its 35th year, the 2022 Conde Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards continue to capture travel experiences their readers and globetrotters love best. Sri Lanka and Resplendent Ceylon received recognition for Cape Weligama, featured in the Top 20 Resorts in Asia list at #3 and Best Resorts in the World list at #22. The full list can be accessed here.
“The results are a reflection of travellers seeking magical experiences in idyllic locations” Malik J. Fernando, Managing Director of Resplendent Ceylon said, adding that “the natural warmth of Sri Lankans and the continent’s worth of attractions this small island offers makes it perfectly suited for the new breed of traveller looking for an unconventional experience.”
Cape Weligama combines intelligent design and cuisine that pays homage to its location on the south coast, creating the perfect balance of creature comforts and impeccable service. Stunning panoramas await you, naturally complementing the private retreats designed by one of Asia’s most celebrated architects, Lek Bunnag. The resort’s dining venues capture Weligama’s iconic sunsets, as does the 60-metre crescent-shaped infinity pool that appears to flow seamlessly into the shimmering sea, while those timeless breezes ensure elegant swells unfurl onto the sun-kissed sand.
Sri Lanka was also voted among the Top 48 Countries in the World, Asia Top Islands and Friendliest Countries in the World.
