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.
