Hi

My kite buddy and I are considering going to Kalpitya, Sri Lanka for a couple of weeks in May.

If anyone has any direct experience of Divyaa Hotel can you please let us know...particularly,
1:can u kite close to or directly from the hotel?
2:Or do you have to locate somewhere else?
3: Was your hotel experience OK?
4: any other useful comment?

Much appreciated...... :D :D :D :D :D

Hi Brin,

Check our website (www.srilankakite.com) we are the only place located right on the lagoon.
You can launch and land directly in front of your room. On the map we are on the same side of the lagoon as Diviya just a bit further north.

Some infos here too : viewtopic.php?t=2382812&p=831227

Drop me an email if you need more infos :) stef@srilankakite.com

PS : Tom Court will be with us in May.

i was there in january for a month... didnĀ“t expect too much wind but was very suprised!
except for 3-4 days we had kite-wind the whole month!
the lagoon is perfekt for freestyle and also learning!

i was staying at www.surfschool-srilanka.com

the camp is located on the same side as divyaa & sri lanka kite - i would say in between of those...
they are not right at the waterfront but its only 50meters to the water...

they offer rooms/cabins in 3 price categories and the staff was really nice! the food was excellent! (dangerous in terms of gaining weight :) )
i was staying in a cabana and it was very nice!

Hello, I m leo the owner of kitesurfinglanka.
Have you heard that there is great wind in Sri Lanka between May and October and between december and february ?

Check out http://www.kitesurfinglanka.com or just visit us in North West Sri Lanka!!

We offer kite lessons, rental, kite safaris and trips, accommodation, great food and a chilled out ambience.

There is a choice of where to kite, there are lagoons- small, big and enormous. There is miles of coastline with shore break to explore, allowing a choice of long downwinders, flat water or ocean- you choose. We do kite trips to perfect spots.

We offer kite lessons with our experienced and friendly IKO qualified instructors. We have a perfect spot for teaching, in a safe lagoon with waist deep water, we use good quality equipment and have a safety boat.

The trade wind blows nicely from May till October, last season there was just 5 days of no wind in 5 months... check out the statistics here http://www.windguru.cz/fr/historie.php? ... &model=gfs

We offer a range of accommodation in our camps and our catering team provides great food served in a buffet style so you will not go hungry after a day of kiting.

Here are a few videos from our kitespots:
