Sri Lanka’s Cape Weligama launches new tea-inspired spa
POSTED 11 Aug 2017 . BY Tom Walker
A new tea-inspired spa has opened at the Cape Weligama resort on the southern coast of Sri Lanka.

Facilities at The Spa Sanctuary include four treatment rooms – including a couple’s suite – an outdoor relaxation area and a health club kitted out with TRX suspension equipment.

Working in partnership with Paris-based product house Thémaé – whose products and therapies are inspired by “the art of tea” – the spa will celebrate Cape Weligama’s location and its Dilmah Tea heritage.

Cape Weligama is owned and owned by independent hotel group Resplendent Ceylon, founded by the Fernando family of entrepreneurs. The Fernandos are among Sri Lanka’s most prominent tea producers and founders of Dilmah Tea.

Treatments at the spa will see Thémaé’s signature “four teas elixir” of white, green, black and red tea – described as a powerful antioxidant with anti-aging and calming properties – being incorporated into treatments.

In addition to the tea-infused treatments, Cape Weligama’s in-house wellness team will offer guests Hatha Yoga sessions, wellness clinics under the guidance of a personal trainer and surf and paddleboard sessions.

Guests will also be able to expand their wellness journey outside the spa, by opting for ayurveda-inspired cuisine at the resort’s Ocean Terrace restaurant.

Menus will be compiled incorporating ayurvedic principles, allowing guests to choose dishes suitable to their suggested diet and “doshas” – an ayurvedic method of assessing body types.

Resplendent Ceylon was formed in 2005 to create and manage a collection of small luxury resorts offering a unique ‘trail’ across Sri Lanka.

The company’s first property, Ceylon Tea Trails opened in 2005, followed by the launch of Cape Weligama in October 2014.

Resplendent’s third venture, Wild Coast Tented Lodge, is scheduled to open in October 2017 on a secluded beachfront site on the edge of the island’s Yala National Park.

Further Resplendent Ceylon properties are planned in the Cultural Triangle near Dambulla and on the East Coast near Trincomalee.
