Lying by an infinity pool, with the sound of rolling ocean waves crashing against the cliff face below, warm from the setting sun and with an icy frozen margarita melting over my hand, relaxation is realised. Did I mention I was about to hop up to go for a massage….? London had never felt further away.
Located on the Indian Ocean headland near Galle, Cape Weligama by Resplendent Ceylon is one of Sri Lanka’s most esteemed luxury resorts. Part of the Relais & Chateau group, it is unsurprising that one of the highlights of my stay was the food. I indulged in the Chef’s Table degustation under the passionate and dedicated Chef Vinnol, a massage with Ria in the spa sent me to another world and Natasha, my assistant ensured every need (including a PT session) was met with ease.
Sri Lanka is the exotic, interesting and the home to the most wonderful culture and people. I am so glad to have had the opportunity to experience this incredible place in depth. I hope you have the chance too, to visit and explore this rapidly growing land. xHermione.
