Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My dad and I stayed here for a week and would recommend if a few things were improved.
I must admit, there was a lot that needs work: the pool was out of use for a few days due to algae build up, the food was often served late and water pressure was low or off a few times. Our ceiling fan didn’t work and our toilet pipe was also leaking which gave an awful smell, within 2 days this was fixed. Room service was sporadic and required you to leave your door unlocked for the day. Everything seemed a little disorganised and we understood that it was under new management and told there were no rotas etc planned for staff so hopefully this is improved for new guests asap. Unfortunately as the first guests of the season we felt a little like a practice run, although they were receptive of the feedback.

Despite the many hiccups, the place itself is really pretty and tranquil. The location and design is beautiful and the outdoor bathrooms are a real treat. The aircon worked well and we appreciated the mosquito nets for added protection. The staff were very friendly and would be happy to do anything for you. You can use yoga mat’s available which was a nice touch. I also really enjoyed using the hammocks each day.

Big thanks to the chef because no matter what they served you, if it was a local dish, it tasted amazing. The food was by far the best in the area (we tried 3 different hotel restaurants). The hoppers were delicious for breakfast! So if you are a foodie and don’t mind waiting a while for your meal, this is the place for you. Watch out for the tea / coffee that is left out from breakfast though, they charge you at the end of your trip for each time you used it, which we were not told about and assumed was included.

For kitesurfing, please note there are multiple kite spots in the area and depending on the time of year depends which spot has the most consistent wind. After 2 days on the lagoon that was gusty and just not great this time of year (June) we realised that Mario (the kitesurfing school lead) was not going to be taking us to the best spots in the area (currently mini Vella & Vella) so we arranged a daily taxi 10 minutes up the road to The Rascals, where they will take you to the best wind spot each and every day of your trip. Other guests from Kitelantis also joined us a few days for this. Would be great if the kite school went where the wind was best each day, that’s what we have all travelled 100’s of miles and hours to this area for… the best wind spots!

Overall, we would come back in a heart beat, so long as we were reassured that things were running more smoothly by the time we returned. Unfortunately, we cannot give 5 star rating right now, however, I think with improvements this place could be a real gem. Best of luck to management. Thank you for a peaceful stay.

I stayed at Kitelantis for 5 nights with a friend who stayed for 8 nights. We really enjoyed our stay here. It was just what we expected, the rooms were clean and the outdoor bathroom was different. It did take some getting used to but actually found it quite enjoyable showering outside in the end. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Although there was one staff member who primarily served us and looked after us (he was great) I feel there could have been a few more staff on hand as sometimes we would be sat at the pool bar and no one would be there to serve us. Found myself looking for him at times to ask for a drink. He arranged everything for us, arranged our boat to kite beach promptly, arranged a day trip dolphin watching and snorkelling and even washed a pair of trousers I had stained when I asked him to. The food was better on some nights then others, the soup appetiser was always so nice. I do feel like the food was served at very set times, we would come for breakfast at 9/9.30 and by 12.30 our lunch would be ready and we weren’t particularly hungry at that time then we would have to wait till 7.30pm for dinner. In between there was nothing. Also I like to drink white wine in the evening and a couple of times they actually ran out even when I was the only guest drinking it. Was very quiet and peaceful as not many guests were in the hotel. I was actually allowed to choose the music playlist (Music was rarely played, mostly in the evening) as the same playlist was played over again by the staff. All in all I really enjoyed my stay here, value for money I would say it was just right and I would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a quiet getaway with some water sports.

Great resort with pool, very nice overwater cabin, and free-to-use canoe’s (which is awesome)! As backpackers this all was very affordable due to the tent park the resort also had. Environment is really nice and calmly!

Mr Roshan did everything to make us feel comfortable and even let us enjoy all of the resorts facilities the whole day we had checked out!

Four stars instead of five because the food was relatively expense while cheaper alternatives seem to lack in the close neighborhood.

All by all, great experience!

Enjoyed every bit of our stay even though we did not kitesurf since we were not certified surfers. The hotel is located near the lagoon, and the breeze was refreshing.
On the day we arrived, we were treated to a boat ride to see the fishing boats arriving after catching the fish for the day and the lovely sunset. On the second day, we went on a boat safari and had a BBQ picnic lunch on the picturesque bank of Kala Oya(river). On the 3rd day, we did kayaking. The food was excellent even though expensive for locals. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

An incredibly stylish and beautiful hotel. I was looking for a calm place and this was a perfect match. However, you can socialize if you want. Jessie, the manager, is doing his job with a strong sense of responsibility, Ansalees and other employees are highly professional and kind. Hotel boat can take you to the beach. The place is very popular for kitesurfers and the beach was very windy during my stay, but you can relax perfectly at the hotel pool. The atmosphere there is idyllic. Food was really tasty.

We went there to do kitesurf and it was great. The kite spot with flat water was amazing and we had good wind during our entire stay. Kite lessons were available and rent as well. They gave us great advices to improve. The hotel was amazing as well, the view from the room was crazy and the staff was very friendly and cautious about our well-being and needs while we were there.

We were very disappointed at our recent stay at this hotel and do not recommend this to anyone. Years back this was one of our favorite places of visit. Hotel situated at an lovely location and built in to a lovely concept however now the place is totally mismanaged. Staff is rude and unprofessional. No hygiene in rooms and restaurant. Service is horrible. Food is not value for money. We actually had to check out prior to scheduled date due to these.

Second time I went to SriLanka and second time to Kitelantis.
I started my holiday overthere for 5 days to get rid of the jetlag. Then I made a trip trough the country...10 different hotels...and ended back in Kitelantis for 3 days. And this hotel is fareout the best. Relax, sober with confort and beautiful. And ofcourse the manager Jesse with his team.

this is a new place but badly maintained.A/C is not working properly and lot of mosquitoes and spend sleepless nights.Doors of the room are difficult to close and no handles for doors. Theres no room service and lot of sand accumulated inside the room and guests have to clean the room.Breakfast served at 8.30 in the morning and some of the curries brought to the table at 9 am.food is tasty and lacking many things at the buffet. Roshan ,the manager is friendly and the staff were not trained properly to give a proper service to the guests.nice surroundings with a lagoon view and sad to see this kind of a place going waste.
