Dilsiri, Léo and the staff are stoked you want to stay at our Hotel and Kiteschool.

The Indian Ocean is right at our doorstep and ideal for freeriding and wave riding in front of the camp. The Kalpitiya Lagoon is a perfect spot for beginners and freestyle while the Puttalam Lagoon is great for Downwinders and Camping Trips. We can bring you to 6 differents spots around our camp.

We offer a wide array of Bungalows with garden or lagoon view. You can also stay in one of our deluxe tents that are spread out throughout the lovingly maintained garden. We are rated #1 on TripAdvisor. We offer a lot of free activities and services. We also provide activities and excursions for no wind days and non kiters.

Our guests love our food: local fruits and vegetables from the village, fresh seafood brought in by the fishermen each morning. We have Sri Lankan Cuisine like Rice & Curry, Hoppers and Kottu as well as a range of Western Dishes. We have free tea, coffee and drinking water around the clock.


Our kitecamp is situated in the fishing village of Kandakuliya in Kalpitiya, north west part of Sri Lanka.

The property is a coconut estate with a beautiful exotic garden. It has 19 bungalows with a private bathroom and toilet, one 3 bedroom Villa with 2 bathrooms, and 13 deluxe tents with a common bathroom. The setting is amazing! The property is surrounded by the lagoon and faces the Indian Ocean. In our camp, you’ll find privacy, tranquility and beauty.

How did you like the accommodation?


The best place to stay & kite in kalpitiya! Super positive vibes!
The kite kamp that has it all. Very welcoming atmosphere, good vibes, super friendly staff, wave spot in front of the kamp, lagoons around, very windy conditions, good food, eco-minded & creative.

If you consider coming to kalpitiya, don't hesitate and book with Kitesurfing Lanka. They where one of the first camps in this area and 6 years later still number 1 with the most experience in the area. Excellent kite trips, professional kite-teaching and yoga, great massages at the spa...

amazing people, great conditions
Hard to get a friendlier group of staff members, if you ever thought of learning kitesurfing this is the place, with great wind and boats to pick you up if you cant get back to shore, lessons if required, friendly staff who always greet you with a smile (even though they have just rescued you in the boat the 5th time that day haha) food is very nice and a real family atmoshere, chilled vibe and a nice bar to have a drink at at the end of a hard days boarding.

Great holiday garanteed!
Came back from another great visit to kitesurfing lanka. Love that place! Great camp/facilities, food, vibe, people, etc. 2nd time that me and my partner have stayed there and won't be the last.
We stayed there for kitesurfing but, especially in summer, i can see it can also be a great place for less kitesurf fanatics as they organise excursions and in summer season you can go snorkeling, diving and whale watching.
I have always travelled there together with my partner but i would be happy to arrive there as a single too (which loads of people do). Can't go wrong with kitesurfing lanka!!!

A little piece of paradise
My time at KSL was absolutely perfect!
Friendly, courteous, staff who go out of their way to make you feel at home.
Lots of activities and good people to spend time with.
Healthy, wholesome, mouthwatering food and a well stocked bar with great company to spend your evenings at.
The natural beauty which surrounds you is simply breathtaking. From the gorgeous sunsets in the evening to midnight swims with bioluminecent plankton, it was an experience of a lifetime.
Thanks for the memories KSL!!!
Until we meet again...

Beware: lovely paradise inside.
This was without a doubt the best place I have been during my trip to Sri Lanka. It looks amazing and feels amazing, and it is also definitely because of the people! The staff is awsome! Funny, happy, kind and super-proffesional. Food was heaven! Every meal a new yummy yummy surprise. And every night some new crazy games and lovely silly jokes at the bar! All the greetings to the kitesurfing instructors, they are super heroes!
Anyway, once you step into the paradise, you will know you are in the right place! All the green and the coconut trees and everything nicely decorated with all sorts of plants, sea shells, wood, little paths, beautiful painted walls and all sort of arty cute things! Awww!
There is no need to say that the bungalows are super cute and clean and comfortable. My favourite part was the bathroom! I have never seen a bathroom as beautiful as the one here!
Anyway, I got super enthusiastic remembering my time there! Thank you Dil & team for creating such a magical place! And for being so caring with the environment! Thumbs up for sustainability and this eco friendly atitude you have! See you nex timeee!

Kalpitiya offers some of the best conditions to learn kitesurfing. We teach in Kalpitiya Lagoon which provides waist-deep, flat water and makes learning and progression easy. We have a rescue boat on site to guarantee maximum security for both beginners and advanced riders.

Main Kitesurf Beach: Kalpitiya Lagoon

Kitesurf Lessons we offer:

Beginner Kitesurf Lessons

Our beginner's course will get you from learning the basics of the wind mechanisms, first set-up and stiring a 4-line kite until your first meters on the board. Safety is our number one priority, you will be learning in waist-deep water at any step of the course. A typical kite-lesson day consists of 3 hours (depending on season, you can book additional hours per day on site). All lessons include full equipment and transport to the spot from the camp. We offer group lessons with maximum 2 students per instructor, or individual lessons one to one to ensure the fastest possible progress.

Advanced Kitesurf Lessons

Our advanced kitesurf lessons will take you to the next level. You might want to book a refresh course if your last lessons were a few months or even longer ago? Together with our experienced instructors you will repeat every important step from set-up over launching/landing to the safety mechanisms, to ensure you a smooth and safe start back in the sport.
You can choose between group lessons (max. 2 people) and private lessons. A typical kite-lesson day consists of 3 hours (depending on season, you can book additional hours per day on site).
If you want to push your limits even further and go for your first big jumps or freestyle tricks, then our private coaching and advanced clinics are what you’ve been looking for.

Private Kitesurf Lessons

Every course and lesson can be held as an individual class. Having the full attention of your instructor and spending more time on the kite will boost your progression in shorter time. It also allows you to progress in your own pace and every exercise can be adapted to your own needs.

This spot is one of the best in the world. We travel by boat from Kalpitiya passing a peaceful landscape which separates the lagoon from the ocean. After one hour we stop on a small island to setup our kites, then we kite 5km downwind, along sandbars, passing quiet fishing villages to a great time to play around, explore the untouched coastline before arriving at our favorite spot in Sri Lanka!
Safety boats will be following behind to help if you have any problems and will watch out for you all day. Enjoy a 2.5km bay, at a perfect angle to the wind, creating world class kiting conditions. Off to shore wind gives you kilometers of glassy flat water and so much space. We have a comfortable kite station on the Island with hammocks, beanbags, chairs and plenty of shade, with a nice view of the kite area. We also offer advanced lessons at this spot for those of you want to progress with new tricks. We provide a tasty lunch and cold drinks, safety boats and return transport.
