We Escape

Sri Lanka: South West Sri Lanka

Waltz across the road out of this quirky, fun, lavender walled palace into the lively Weligama Bay to hang across some fun sand bars and surf tropical waves.

“For those who love the funk - don't look no further”

With all shades of purple and dim lighted corners, We Escape is a place for those who prefer quirky over generic. Options for singles, doubles and the social butterfly in the dorms. This isn’t your ordinary share accommodation though - if it wasn’t the other people in your room, you’d be in a 5 star resort but without the price tag. The building is modern throughout with plenty of chill area.

“Perfect for those seeking the surfing lifestyle dream”

Weligame bay is a sandy bottomed break that’s gentle enough for the multitudes of beginners that flock to the area. So if you are starting it’s a great place to meet others on your level and get some local lessons of the pros. While, if you are more experienced couple kms down the tracks is Mirissa. A crescent bay with both lefts and rights over reef.

“Sri Lankan hospitality extending it’s greetings and helpful guides”

If you are looking for other things to do in your stay, you’ll be happy to hear there’s lots going on in this area. For the nature lovers there are hikes that can be arranged and safaris that take you to see wild elephants in the area. Otherwise the bay of Weligama is a popular place for surf and sun inspired travelers to seek refuge, resulting in some cool old boats and palaces turned into now lively bars. Seafood sunsets from any high points are a must do also!
