If you want to kite, learn to kite, meet nice people, and have a great experience, KSL is the place to stay in Kalpitiya.
Not fancy, but not lacking in amenities for most people’s requirements.
The food wasn’t as good this recent stay as before, although the bbq was excellent. Still, highly recommended.
Beautiful quiet location. Combined hotel & kitesurfing school for all levels. We did 2 nights and 3 half or full days of lessons. The accomodation was basic, but great. Confortable bed & good showers. Food was good and plenty of it. They even made special dishes for my vegetarian daughter. Staff were polite and friendly and the bar area was great to just relax and chat with your family or others staying at the hotel.
We are complete beginers to kite surfing and a large safe shallow lagoon is only a short truck ride away. The tuition was excellent. progressing us as we were ready and making sure we were safe and taking some of the effort out of the learning for us.
We had a great 3 days.
Amazing staff, location & venue!
You will feel home thanks to the helpful team who are making everything possible to answer your needs.
There are plenty of daily trips organized.
The camp is next to the lagoon.
Wind is steady everyday you dont have to worry about kiting or not.
Food is really good & you will meet incredible people.
Sleep/Eat/Kite & repeat ！
This was my 4th time at Kitesurfing Lanka and I highly recommend it:
- exceptional spots with places like Vella (butter flat water with a consistent wind...and nobody out there - paradise)
- amazing staff, incredibly kind and helpful
- outstanding coaching with Franzi from senditkitecoaching.com, who in just 3h of lessons taught me the darkslide, darkslide transition with a kite loop, to jump higher (and in style :)) and the front roll...
To sum up - I’ll come back here as soon as I can!
We stayed in a perfect little tent with just the necessary equipment. The staff is so nice you don't want to leave the place, the food ils great, facilities are clean, and the kitesurfing teachers are amazing (I was a total beginner). This is a yes ! One of the best holidays in my life so far. I really recommend it. Suitable for couples, people traveling alone, friends and families.
