The island has gained popularity as a tourist destination over the years, given its beautiful landscape and places of interest and historical value, that include an impressive eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The property offers 198 contemporarily designed spacious rooms and suites. Regardless of whether you wish to enjoy a holiday, plan a destination wedding or a corporate event, Weligama Bay Marriott Resort & Spa is certainly the ideal location.
