Fisherman’s Bay

Stashed away in the sandy fishing village of Weligama, 150 KM from Colombo is a gateway to paradise: ‘Fisherman’s Bay’.

Best Known For

Mimicking the picture-perfect charm of a distant, storied tropical retreat, a vacay at the ‘Fisherman’s Bay’ is tinged with seaside-inspired colour schemes and views of the Indian Ocean and the Weligama Bay. Jagged brine waters, swaying palms, windswept shores, mauve sunsets, call of gulls, grey-hued fishing huts and weather-beaten boats come to mind.

The Experience

The ocean-facing Standard Rooms and the bay-facing Deluxe Rooms are furnished with king size or twin beds and modern bathrooms. Choreographed by fishing life inspired paintings and fresh flower arrangements, these accommodations reflect tropical allurement and repose.

Namesake restaurant of Sri Lanka’s frangipani flower, the ‘Araliya’ serves international and native dishes, alongside seafood fare made with catch sourced from the waters beyond the hotel while the ‘Captain’s Deck’ glasses out alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The sun-speckled swimming pool offers respite from monotonous daily routines.

Around and About

Deeply evocative of sunshine and silver-tipped brine waters, the picturebookish village of Weligama lies amid Sri Lanka’s Southern Coast. From surfing the perpetual waves and watching stilt fishermen, to exploring quaint old temples and wandering rubber plantations, Weligama mixes tropical attractions with a slow-moving pace of life.

The brine aglow in the silver of moonshine; boats scattered over the waters like autumn leaves in a pond.
