“I finally got it!!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

I've been trying to kite for years!! Finally someone suggested this place and it all came together..The wind and lagoon were perfect to learn and the more advanced Kiter's had the ocean and plenty of space for pulling tricks in the lagoon..
Food and people were amazing..I will be back...:) Traci Teel

I changed to kitesurfing lanka after staying 2 weeks in another kite camp in kalpitiya and was amazed how great this place is. The atmosphere is so amazing, great chill out area, super good bar, easy to meet new people, super helpful happy and friendly staff. They have a really nice bar with good cocktails and fresh juices and a new spa in which I had a super good Swedish sports massage. The food is just amazing, such a great variety, I was blown away every time. Dil gave us Really good advice on two other spots where you can head to from the beach in front of the camp which is a really nice variety if you've been to the lagoon every day for 2 weeks. Great place and super nice experience, I will definitely come back!

Hey Guys,

Was awesome having you at our kite camp. Happy that you were brave enough to venture to the spot in front of our camp. What great waves we had on the last day!!!

Thanks for the review and we will get rid of those annoying crows soon :)

Warm regards from Kalpitiya.

Decided a while back to learn to kite surf and do not think we could have picked a better place. Had a Lagoon Bungalow, that was a great little space, with a beautiful view. The camp is well laid out and yet cosy, at the same time. The atmosphere was good, great food (a little spicy for my taste but I am a wimp). The bar area and overall common areas again were excellent and after a day kiting a lovely Spa. From Dhil and his staff to Wendy(the dog) everyone was so engaging and friendly. Kite School we visited during a very busy period and the camp coped well but the lagoon and school were very busy so try and pick a time when its a little quieter if you are learning and either rent or take booties for definite. Special mention must go to Mischi though and a big thank you for helping a young lady with her confidence. Thanks. Would we return, YES we would and already trying to work out a date to go back.

Room Tip: The lagoon bungalow we used lovely and from the looks of the camp definitely the way to go.

Hey,

Thanks for taking time to write a review.

Kiters are a chilled out bunch :) haha glad you felt relaxed.

We have two seasons;

May to October - Main Season which peaks end July/ August and really quietens down in September/ October

December to March - Secondary season when the thermics come into play. Morning we spend snorkeling/ SUP/ Kayaking and then in the afternoons KITE. Its actually my favourite time of year.

Keep in touch, spread the word and hope to see you again.

Cheers,

Dil

It was my first time in Kalpitiya and also in a Kitesurfing Camp. This was one of the best places I've ever been to because of the overall experience with Kitesurfing Lanka. The team is really friendly and the services are really excellent. They have amazing food menus! I'm gonna be there soon to take Kitesurfing lessons :)

Amazing, awesome hospitality, all the KSL staff are on top of everything to make sure all guests are well taken care off.
Massive food hall to serve meals 3 times a day daily.
Nice scenic walk just outside the property where you can watch the sunrise & the sunset.
For Muslims, there is a mosque in the village close by.
Organized downwinders & kitesurfaris are so much fun.
Thank you KSL.

Room Tip: Ask for the bungalow availability & massage packages prior to booking
