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 with 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 started 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 Gulf 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.

Which Sri Lanka for whom?

Since 2017 we have two different spots and hotels on Sri Lanka. To avoid any confusion we made you a chart for a better overview which destination suits you best:

Couples, Single Travelers, Kitesurfer/Non Kitesurfer Couple, FamiliesKitesurfer Couple, Families, Friends and Adventurers
YOU ARE LOOKING FOR……a fancy design hotel with a pool and lots of other activities next to kitesurfing.…serenity and relaxation from the stressfull daily grind. You want a dinner for two or just enjoy reading a good book next to the pool.
KITE LEVELThe lagoon that is near the Kalpitiya Lodge is ideal for everyone who wants to learn kitesurfing. Even intermediate kiters can learn how to stay and ride upwind easily. For all the advanced kiters, the Kalpitiya lagoon resembles a huge playground with flatwater to try freestyle tricks.The lagoon at the Dreamspot is rarely known amongst other kitesurfers. You will usually be on your own for most of the time and only see other kiters passing by when they ride a downwinder. Perfect for everyone who prefers a lonely and remote spot over a vibrant nightlife. Beginners will find perfect learning conditions. Intermediate kiters and wave beginners will find a wave spot right in front of the Eco Lodge with moderate sized waves.
THE HOTELIn Kalpitiya you will find a design hotel that was built by a German architect. Black wood and generously designed rooms with views over the lagoon or the pool are waiting for you.The Dreamspot Eco Lodge lives true to the motto ‘being one with the nature’. The buildings are situated right in the middle of an exotic garden. Some of them were built around a tree so when you go into your room, you might find a tree trunk right in the middle ;) In addition to that, the restaurant lies next to the pool with fantastic views and, of course, you will have lots of time to relax.

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 it blows a steady 15 to 20 knots. Therefore it is perfect for beginners and intermediate riders.

You might have to becareful where you stand as there are a few sharp shells (We advise you to bring some shoes to wear on the beach or some reef boots).  This will not however affect your fun spent on the water

KiteWorldWide Center Sri Lanka / Dreamspot

The KiteWorldWide Center of our new Dreamspot is situated at a lagoon that is far away from the busy spot 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 is free of charge, to ensure your security at all times.

Like always you are welcome 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 worries. 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 managed to find this in our brand new Dreamspot Eco Lodge.

The refurbished lodge is right at the beach, only 10m away from the ocean (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 stunning views across the ocean and the 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. On top of that, you will find a pool, exquisite cuisine and a perfectly 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 in the perfect location – 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 open spaces, big outdoor areas, and typical local dark wood furniture. The rooms offer the standard of a hotel while keeping the comfort of the Sri Lanka style.

Both room categories offer comfortable double beds (an additional bed is possible), a desk, a big drawer, a terrace/balcony, a fan, and air conditioning. Additionally, all rooms have a private modern bath room. 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 views. 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, 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 will eat a tropical breakfast with fresh fruits, bread, pancake and different egg dishes as well as marmalade & honey. Naturally coffee, tea and fresh 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.

More activities on Sri Lanka

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.  The city is full of ancient and well preserved ruins and It has now received the UNESCO status. In less than 2 hours you can reach the city which is surrounded by monasteries and water reservoirs.  The city has 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 is where it is said that 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 driving around the lagon whould take quite some time, lets sail over it instead!  Once we reach the other side you can enjoy a guided tour watching elephaphants, crocodiles, monitor lizards, apes and many other species.  After some lunch and a stop for a swim (away from the the corocodiles ; ) we will head back so that you have the whole afternoon to kite.

Dolpin- and Whale watching

Close by you have the opportunity to watch big pods of dolphin in their natural habitat between November and March. You can even see whales with a bit of luck, when they are on their way from the Gulf of Mannar and pass by really close to the coast. 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.
