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.

I had an amazing time at De Silva. Super friendly stuff, perfect located and good vibes. Also really good instructer for beginners. They offer everyday a free shuttle boat to the Kite spot and beachside, also if there is no wind you have a lot of other activities like SUP, ride bikes, volleyball, slack line,... or just chill at the pool. Free refill water the whole day and the breakfast was delicious, for me important everyday fresh fruits :)
The equipment was in a really good condition, they take care of it. I wish I could stay longer. If I'm coming back to Sri Lanka, than only to stay at De Silva.

stayed here for 10 days beginning Feb 2020. Very relaxed place, amazing food, friendly staff. Kitesurfing was really great on the lagoon and also in the sea right next to kite spot. Highlights of the time were the downwinder and also diving which they helped arrange.

Many wonderful people, knowledgeable instructors always wlling to give tips, Hassey who ran the kite rental and school is really helpful and makes everything run smoothly.

can you guess I loved it!!

I was travelling on my own and I fount this place by accident! It turned out to be the best choice. As a beginner kitesurfer I have received a great support and help from amazing kite crew in the school. Hasitha And Danus made my week and thanks to them I have improved a lot just within 4 days. The breakfast was very good. And all the people working there were extremely nice and helpful! Thanks had the best time!

I really enjoyed my stay at the De Silva Wind Resort. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Nice surrounding and relaxed atmosphere. They also offer nice Ayurveda treatments at the neighbored hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful, also during booking my questions have always been answered very quickly. Instructors for kite surfing explain every step and are very patient. The lagoon with the warm water temperature is perfect for kite surf beginners.
Also the food was great and always plenty. It was a pleasure to spend time here, thanks to Upul and his team. I can warmly recommend this place.

Amazing stay ! De Silva Palm resort is a very quiet and relaxing place to stay, rooms are confortable, beautiful swimming pool, food is delicious and staff is wonderful and friendly. The resort is located just on the lagoon, it is very practical for kiting. The kite school is just perfect for beginner and experienced kiters. The instructor is so nice and professional, we felt very safe with him in this lagoon not overcrowded. Best place to stay in Kalpitiya !

For me as a beginner it was the best spot I could go especially to improve my skills.Therefore I have to thank my instructor Jan. I already had 3 training courses at 3 different other places. When somebody wants to learn kitesurfing, thät's the place to go.There is big flatwater lagoon with enough place for each kiter and if are experienced with waves you can kite on the open sea. It's devided only by 50m from the lagoon. The wind yield wasn't bad. In 20 days only 5 days without wind. The resort is a great place to stay. Rooms are very clean and nicely furnished. The whole crew is very friendly and always helpful. Food is delicious. For breakfast, lunch and dinner there is a buffet. In the office you can book different trips. For example a trip to a National Park or a trip to dolphin watching and others. If you are experienced to kite waves I highly recommend the trip for the 17km downwinder. That's a highlight for sure.
All in all I can highly recommend that place and I'll be back for sure.

Our group of 30 kitesurfers from Greece visited De Silva Windresort late February for 10days. Our experience with the team there was amazing. Upul, Kathy, Baba, Nalika and the rest of their staff were all very accommodating to us all, made us all feel very welcome and part of their team. Being a big group, I was surprised on how they could keep up with all of us from our accommodation stay though out our daily kitesurfing experience in Kalpitiya. Had great downwind trips through Kalpitiya waters, great scenery. Kite school is very well equipped, great drinks and chill out areas. The place is great for someone who wants to kite all day and relax in the evenings. We had full board meals though out our stay, very taste and lots to choose from. They planned daily events which made us feel special :) Visit DeSilva in Kalpitiya, only positive vibes :)

The best kitetrip I have done. Very helpful personel, safe and windy kitespot, and a must see windresort. I strongly recommend Sri Lanka and De Silva for this kind of vaccation. Also repair options for unexpected kitesurfing moments.

Can you launch / land the kite right from the resort, or one has to goto the sandbar?
Kalpitiya, Sri Lanka53 contributions
Hi Lusaka, thank you for your interest in DE SILVA Windresort. Actually you can start and land the kite in front of the resort beach but only if you are an experienced kiter. As there is not so much space you should have control in steering. If you are beginner or not as experienced we kindly offer boat transfers several times to the vis-a-vis sandlobe. This service is already in our room prices included. However, it´s just a view minutes boat drive and you have the possibility to kite back to the resort any time. There is always someone around to give you a helping hand in starting and landing your kite wether infront of the resort or at the beach ;) Hope to see you soon here at Kalpitiya Lagoon! Windy regards, Your DE SILVA Windresort Team
