Celebrating Sri Lankan Surf Culture
At Ceylon Sliders Weligama we feature stylish ocean view suites as well as a more modest room in the back building. Perched in between it all lies our courtyard café, on top our rooftop bar and on the ground floor, a small shop stocking tee's and accessories from our own brand as well as some of our favourite brands from near and far. The space is inspired by tropical modernism, the artists passing by and the local surfers.
In 2023 we started the renovation of an old shack on the beach in Ahangama. The foundation where laid for a hub attracting surfers and foodies of the bustling surf town. A larger retail with an art gallery opens up towards one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. An open kitchen and cocktail bar makes for a great sunset spot where you can can view the surf while enjoying some food or drinks.
Ceylon Sliders accommodation is designed with modern living and laid-back luxury in mind. From spacious suites with sea views to more modest rooms, the relaxed interiors, colonial furniture, white washed walls and collection of photography prints and artwork drifts throughout. Each room a personal space to unwind before heading out to explore the south coast of Sri Lanka.
More than a location, Ceylon Sliders brings together like minded people that are sharing the joy of riding the waves around the island. The palm-speckled bay of Weligama, peeling surf and laid-back ambience provides the perfect backdrop for inspiration to flow and creativity to grow. Ceylon Sliders is a carefully designed space created by the individuals that live here and the ones that travel by. Together we share a simple life by the sea, surfing waves, creating things or enjoying good meals at the café.
Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced surfer, we’re on hand to help you get the most out of your surfing holiday. Weligama provides the perfect backdrop to learn with relaxed waves peeling just out front whilst the more advanced can enjoy world class waves on any of the reef breaks down road.
