It took a while. Kalpitiya has been on the list of spots to add to our program for a while now. A stunning flat water lagoon and wind-proof, comparable to a long season in Brazil. Actually two seasons: from May until October and from December until 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.
Until last year, we didn’t have accommodation or a kite school which would have fit into our concept. Then the perfect opportunity, we got wind of a German Architect who was planning a Hotel with his Sri Lanken Wife in the perfect location. They have built directly at the lagoon and they wanted to rent it entirely to someone else!
We took our chance and flew to Sri Lanka in a cloak-and-dagger operation. After some short negotiations it became clear: this will be the first KiteWorldWide destination in Asia.
