Valampuri Kitesurfing Resort is a family-owned and operated hotel and kite center, situated on the banks of the Kalpitiya Lagoon in the northwest region of Sri Lanka. "Valampuri" refers to a type of shell that turns anticlockwise, in contrast to the typical clockwise turn, and we embrace this principle by offering unique experiences to our guests. The resort is located within a vast coconut plantation, covering an area of over 10,000 square meters. Our grounds include a large garden and plenty of open spaces, providing our guests with privacy and serenity during their stay.
Most of our chalets at Valampuri Kitesurfing Resort are constructed using traditional techniques and local materials, such as wood and coconut leaves. A great deal of love and care has gone into crafting these unique accommodations.Additionally, we invite you to visit our open seafood restaurant, where you can savor healthy local fruits and dishes.
At Valampuri Kitesurfing Resort, we primarily serve Sri Lankan cuisine, as we believe that if you are visiting Sri Lanka, you should try the local food. However, we also offer some Western dishes, as well as vegan options. We take pride in cooking fresh food using locally sourced ingredients. As we are situated in a fishing village, our seafood is always fresh and delicious. In addition, we offer a huge and beautiful swimming pool with a jacuzzi where you can unwind and enjoy our refreshing cocktails and drinks. One of our guest favorites is the Lime and Mint, which you can find at our pool bar.
