Marriott International is making its way to Sri Lanka with the opening of the Weligama Bay Marriott Resort & Spa in a seaside fishing village famous for its world-renowned surf breaks.



“Sri Lanka is a new frontier for Marriott International, and Weligama Bay Marriott Resort & Spa is an innovative addition to Marriott Hotels’ growing portfolio of resorts in Asia-Pacific, said Mike Fulkerson, vice president, brand & marketing, Asia-Pacific, Marriott International.

“The resort is a great base for travellers who want to experience the wealth of Sri Lanka’s rich culture and natural attractions while also enjoying the beautiful beachfront resort, facilities and F&B offerings. We believe Marriott will lead the way in redefining the resort hotel experience in Sri Lanka.”

The innovative hotel offers more than 200 well-designed, modern rooms and suites boasting private balconies that look out onto breathtaking views of Weligama Bay. The resort boasts 3,360sqm of combined outdoor and indoor meeting spaces that includes a creative banquet space that can host up to 2,000 guests, making it the ideal location for themed weddings and socials events.

Guests have the option of dining at four speciality restaurants at the resort. The all-day dining restaurant, Weligama Kitchen is spread across different zones, each with an interactive live kitchen focused on a distinct cuisine that serves authentic local dishes and international flavours.

The Big Fish is a chef-driven restaurant offering gourmet seafood dining in a relaxed yet elegant setting; Tides is an integration of the Lobby and Lobby Lounge with a clearly defined bar which transitions from coffee and pastries during the day to cocktails and light bites in the evening; and The Mirissa Banking Company provides freshly-baked desserts and snacks, accompanied by a selection of fine coffee, fresh juices and speciality drinks.
