Cape Weligama & Wild Coast Tented Lodge

I am pleased and proud to announce my partnership with one of Sri Lanka’s finest destinations – Cape Weligama.


So many people have told me I should have a restaurant in Sri Lanka but it never really happened, even though I was so close a few times.

Now I have the next best thing, I have been asked to re-do all of Cape Weligama’s menus, and over the last few months that is exactly what I have been doing.

Working with executive chef Nisanka Alawatte I feel we have captured the vibrance and integrity of Sri Lankan cuisine with a modern twist.
Their legendary rice and curry is untouched as you can’t fix what is not broken.

The chefs at Cape Weligama are some of the country’s finest and they define five-star service.

I wish them the best in this new direction and will be visiting over next year. So keep an eye out for special dinners and cooking classes with me.

You don’t have to be staying at Cape Weligama to come and enjoy my food – just book and then come in to dine.

Located near Galle, Cape Weligama sits like a jewel overlooking the Indian Ocean. Perfect for a romantic getaway or the ultimate honeymoon, you’ll experience the finest sunsets, hospitality, and timeless Sri Lankan charm.

Food lovers will find a culinary paradise in Cape Weligama’s eight dining establishments with menus ranging from traditional Sri Lankan cuisine to five-star food artistry.

Where trade winds carried legendary explorers like Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta and Fa-Hsien past Sri Lanka’s soaring southern cliffs on some of history’s most celebrated nautical journeys, Cape Weligama has become the most celebrated among Sri Lanka Beach Resorts, along this fabled island’s palm fringed shores. Thirty minutes east of Galle, Cape Weligama inhabits 12 manicured acres atop a singular promontory rising 40 metres above the Indian Ocean. Stunning panoramas await you, naturally complementing the 39 private retreats designed by one of Asia’s most celebrated architects, Lek Bunnag. An array of international dining venues captures 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.


Resplendent Ceylon is creating a trail of small luxury resorts across Sri Lanka, offering the traveller a range of authentic cultural experiences while contributing towards local communities and the environment through the MJF Foundation & Dilmah Conservation.
