The experienced Kiteboarding Events trainer team, a huge material pool with test kites and boards of different brands and of course support from the KiteWorldWide team on site is waiting for you.

We’ve also blocked stylish pool rooms for 2018 at the KiteWorldWide Boutique Lodge directly on the lagoon – so we’re not only going to have a lot of fun on the water. The events are always from Saturday to Saturday, but of course an individual arrival and extension of your stay is no problem.

The KiteWorldWide Spot at the lagoon is perfectly suited for the intensive training concept of Kiteboarding Events.

Kitesurfing Kalpitiya – Sri Lanka

Spot Summer Season May – October

In the summer season the wind blows from south west with 16-33 knots, sometimes a little gusty and most of the times nonstop. The main spot during summer is situated just a short trip by car at a small headland. Advanced riders can (depending on the wind direction) launch directly in front of your booked accommodation and ride downwind to the KiteWorldWide spot. There we have set up a KiteWorldWide cottage for you to take your lunch and relax between the kite sessions.

KiteWorldWide Lagoon Lodge Sri Lanka – Kalpitiya

Finally! A lodge directly located at the lagoon with comfortable rooms on a high standard and a swimming pool in the backyard. The lodge has been built by a German architect and his Sri Lankan wife. We had already viewed a lot of other accommodations at this stunning spot but they somehow never fitted perfectly into our concept. This time it was totally different and we took over the lodge immediatley to plant our own KiteWorldWide DNA there:

Modern bungalows which are still integrated into the surrounding landscape, each with 4 comfortable rooms. Our own restaurant area and a chill-out corner with different loungers, with comfortable deck chairs and hammocks. All rooms come with a view over the lagoon and a terrace or balcony. Additionally there is a swimming pool and a volleyball court in the rear corner of the lodge and the Kite Center with storage for your material.

The rooms of the KiteWorldWide Lagoon Lodge Sri Lanka / Kalpitiya

When you enter the rooms of the lodge you realise that there was a professional architect responsible designing this property. Spacious rooms with massive dark wooden furniture provide the comfort of a hotel, but in keeping with the local style.

Both room categories offer comfortable twin beds (possibility to add 1 bed if you are 3 people), a desk, storage areas, a big built-in cupboard, a terrace with loungers, minibar, fan and air conditioning. Also they have a spacious and modern bathroom with an outdoor shower. All rooms come with a view over the lagoon.

The rooms on the upper floor differ with a higher ceiling, a little more space and a 180 degree view over the lagoon.

Pool rooms

The rooms at the pool site of the KiteWorldWide Lodge in Kalpitiya/ Sri Lanka 

We’ve got some fresh news for you: right next to the pool of the KiteWorldWide Lodge there are brand new rooms available! The rooms at the pool side perfectly blend into the local style while delivering the cosy feeling of being in a modern pool house.

The new rooms offer comfortable twin beds, a desk, storage areas, a big built-in cupboard, minibar, fan and air conditioning. Also they have a spacious and modern bathroom.

And the very best thing about the new rooms: the pool is right in front of your door (literally)!

Full board for everyone – just delicious!

Due to the limited number of restaurants in Kalpitiya we offer you a delicious full board service. That means we serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

In the morning you get a tropical breakfast with fresh fruits, bread, pancakes and different egg dishes as well as marmalade & honey. You will be served fresh coffee, tea and delicious fresh juices.

At lunchtime we offer a main course energy rich with carbohydrates for giving you enough power for the afternoon kite session.

In the evenings we make a barbecue most of the time, with fresh fish, salad, curry, vegetables, fresh bread and rice.

We serve water for all your meals (which is inclusive). Additional drinks and alcohol have to be paid for separately but they are very affordable.

Activities that can be booked for extra costs

Anuradhapura – the forgotten city

What you should definitely not miss is Anuradhapura,one of the oldest royal cities in Sri Lanka which has been hidden and forgotten for a long time. It is now an UNESCO heritage. In less than 2 hours you reach the city which is surrounded by monasteries and water reservoirs, presenting such impressive buildings that you can compare them to the pyramids of Gizeh. What you should also visit is the plant shoot of the Bodhi tree under which Siddhartha found his enlightenment. Monks surround the shrines while praying, families making offerings. Here you can discover and experience buddhism in its most natural form.

Kitesafari Downwinder Dream Spot

This trip is dedicated to the more advanced kitesurfer, the session is a whopping 41 kilometers downwind. First of all we will go by boat to the small village of Keerimundal which is situated at the Dream Spot. There you will find a remote beach with the best flat water in the area. Here you can get crazy with freestyle and big air. On the other side of the 100m wide sandbank you can play in the waves of the beautifull blue indian ocean. For those who dont kite you will have the opportunity to go snorkeling. Afterwards we will make a downwinder until the end of the headland, with the rescue boat at your side all the time. Meanwhile small waves and flat water spots will alternate and you can enjoy the uniqueness of the landscape of Sri Lanka. After a little snack we will head back with our boat at sunset, a perfect end to the perfect day in paradise.

Junglesafari-Boat trip into the Wilpattu National Park

Come with us into the wonderful Wilpattu National Park which is literally just around the corner. As we don’t want to drive around the whole lagoon it would just take so much time, we simply take the most direct route by boat. Here you can enjoy the nature on a guided tour, watching elephants, crocodiles, monitor lizards, apes and many other species. After a little snack and a swim stop we head back so that you still have the whole afternoon for a kite session.

Dolphin- and Whale watching

Close by you have the opportunity to watch big pods of dolphin in their natural surrounding between November and March. You even can see whales with a bit of luck when they are on their way from the Gulf of Mannar and pass by the coast really close to the beach. The best time is November/December and March/April. You need to depart before sunrise but when you come back you still have the whole afternoon for a kite session.
