It took a while. Kalpitiya has been on the list of spots for a while, which we wanted to add to our program. A stunning flat water lagoon and wind-proof, comparable to a long season in Brasil. 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 news of a German architect arrived who has set up comfortable and cosy facilities with his sri lancese wife and whose rooms fit high standards. It has been built directly at the lagoon and they wanted to let 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.
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:
|SRI LANKA KALPITIYA||SRI LANKA DREAMSPOT|
|FOR WHO?||Couples, Single Travelers, Kitesurfer/Non Kitesurfer Couple, Families||Kitesurfer 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 LEVEL||The 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 HOTEL||In 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.|
