With just four rooms and names such as Chocolate Tree and Sugar Apple, you know you are going to be in for a treat when you step into Elephant Stables Weligama Bay. Weligama translates as sandy village and Elephant Stables is at its heart. The beach has a wealth of water sports from diving to surfing, whilst nearby Mirissa is gateway to Sri Lanka’s whale watching industry, where boats go out in search of blue and sperm whales.
The rooms are as colourful as the Sri Lankan fruit that gives them their names. Chocolate Tree is ideal for families with an interconnecting twin room to the master bedroom whilst the Passion Fruit room is perfect for couples with a large private garden and verandah.
Elephant Stables has a swimming pool and sheltered gardens. Each evening, dinner consists of a four course set menu of Sri Lankan and Western cuisine. From November to April the hotel runs a beachside Hopper Hut where you can sample Sri Lanka's most popular local food.
Elephant Stables also has a sister property of the same name in Kandy.
