Ever since we started offering Sri Lanka as a destination for kite surfing holidays we have been overwhelmed with inquiries by you. We have spent so much time in Sri Lanka meanwhile and watched the former quiet lagoon becoming a hot spot of kite surfing. Therefore, it was about time to explore a new spot.

We were talking to the owners of the -new completely refurbished- Dreamspot Eco Lodge and watched the progression of the Refurbishment. Now that the modernisation is done, we are so ready to start into our first season! Right at the beach and only 5 minutes from the well known Dreamspot away you’ll find our new beautiful  Dreamspot Eco Kite Lodge.

In time for the summer season 2017 we are starting here with our own kite center and the well known KiteWorldWide feeling and programme.

As in our other destination in Sri Lanka you will find two seasons here: from June to October and from December to March.

Sri Lanka is the closest tropical destination and accessible with numerous airlines such as the comfortable and affordable Golf Airlines like Emirates and Qatar.

The new Eco Kite Lodge is for all of you who are seeking for tranquility and peace while concentrating on kite surfing in perfect flat water conditions or the sea with nice waves.

Kite surfing at  Dreamspot

Sri Lanka “Dreamspot” – the name says it all. Apart from a hand ful of other Kalpitiya Kite surfers on their downwinder you have this spot all to yourself. Mirror flat water, incredible watercolours and nice, gentle waves for your first steps in wave boarding with a kite on the other side of the peninsula. On top of that you will find wind statistics that are more likely to be expected in Brasil. Long story short: you will find everything a kite surfer desires at the Dreamspot in Sri Lanka and it is right in front of your door.

Spot summer season June – October (starting in 2018: May – October)

The wind is blowing non stop from the south west with 16 to 33 knots during the summer season in Kalpitiya. The Dreamspot is located at a small peninsula only a few minutes away from the lodge. We also bulit a little beach hut at the spot for you where you can have lunch in between the sessions. The wind is blowing side off into the lagoon. But no worries, we have a rescue boat for you (included in the package price, of course).

Spot winter season December – Mid March

During winter season the wind blows exactly from the opposite direction from the south east. The wind is not as strong as in the summer but blowing steady with 15 to 20 knots. Therefore it is perfect for beginners and intermediate riders.

You might have to arrange yourself with a couple of sharp shells, but this reduces definetly not the fun on the water. Anyways, we advise you to bring thin shoes.

KiteWorldWide Center Sri Lanka / Dreamspot

The KiteWorldWide Center of our new Dreamspot is situated at a lagoon that is far away from the busy one in Kalpitiya. Therefore you don’t have to worry about other kiters. Our Beach Hut comes with showers and toilettes. After a long kite session you can relax in the shadow of our chillout-area.

The kite lessons take place in a private course zone, just 5 minutes by car from our Eco Lodge (free of charge). Intermediate kiters can (depending on wind directions) start directly at the lodge and kite to the spot with a downwinder on the seaside. At our Dreamspot we also have a boat, which s free of charge, too, to ensure your security at all times.

Of course you have the opportunity to store your material with us (included in the price). The Kite Storage is located right at the Eco Lodge and you can take your material on the shuttle – without any efforts. Moreover, we have a wide range of the newest equipment by Core Kiteboarding on site.

The new KiteWorldWide Center is the perfect start for a fully relaxed kitesurfing holiday!

KiteWorldWide Dreamspot Eco Lodge – Kalpitiya

We’ve got a new lodge for you! After our initial KiteWorldWide Lodge in Kalpitiya has been a huge success, we hurried to find a place that is at least as much of a gem as the lodge in Kalpitiya. We found this in our brand new Dreamspot Eco Lodge.

The refurbished lodge is right at the beach, only 10m away from the sea (no, you have not read that wrong ;) ). To be more precise – our new Dreamspot Eco Lodge  is not only one Lodge but an arrangement of buildings and rooms stretched out across a tropical garden. One highlight is the pool, from which you have a stunning view across the ocean spectacular sun sets.

Modern but charming guest houses with comfortable rooms right at the beach are waiting for you. You will also find a separate Restaurant area as well as a community area. All rooms are equipped with a small terrace or balcony as well as a fan for air conditioning. On top of that, you will find a pool, exquisite cuisine and aperfectly equipped kite center with storage possibilities.

The rooms of the KiteWorldWide Dreamspot Eco Lodge Sri Lanka / Kalpitiya

The guest house, where you will find the new rooms, is located in perfectly – which means, right at the beach! The rooms of the lodge are equipped with the motto “at home outside” in mind. Therefore you will find opne spaces, big outdoor areas, and typical dark furniture with wood from Sri Lanka. The rooms offer the standard of a hotel while keeping the comfort of the Sri Lanka style.

Both room categories offer comfortable double beds (additional bed possible), a desk, a big drawer, a terrace/balcony, a fan, and air conditioning. Additionally, all rooms have a private modern bath room. From all rooms you have either ocean view or mangrove view.

Beach Rooms

The Beach Rooms are very open and lightly designed . They all offer a balcony with lateral ocean view. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning and each room has its own minibar. We offer 8 Beach Rooms in total.

Eco Rooms

The Eco Rooms are located in a comfy building made out of bricks. The rooms are really spacious and can be opened to the front and the back with large balcony doors, so you will have a constant fresh breeze in the sri lankian heat. The Eco Rooms are lovingly furnished and a lot simpler than the beach rooms. Since the building has been built around a tree, you find some branches going through the rooms, underlining the unique charme of the Dreamspot Eco Lodge. Also, the Eco Rooms all offer either a terrace or a balcony. We offer 9 Eco Rooms in total.

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, pancake and different egg dishes as well as marmalade & honey. Of course coffee, tea and juice will also be served.

At lunchtime we offer a main course 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 and it is included. Additional drinks and alcohol have to be paid for separately but are affordable.

Activities you can book on-site (not included)

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.

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 we simply take the boat and bring you there. Here you can enjoy the nature on a guided tour, watching elephants, crocodiles, monitor lizards, apes and many more. After a little snack and a swim stop we head back so that you still have the whole afternoon for a kite session

Dolpin- and Whale watching

Close by you have the opportunity to watch big dolphin schools 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 to the Gulf of Mannar and pass by the coast really close. 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.
