Valampuri Kite Resort: what we offer?
The word "Valampuri" in the Tamil language means "Left Spiral". It describes a rare shell, one in a million, which uniquely spirals counter-clockwise. Hindus believe it brings wealth and success.
These are the ideas we had in mind when creating our eco-resort: learning from nature's wisdom, finding a unique path and forming a space that allows the visitor to spiral inwards.
Our cabins look similar from the outside, but inside each one is uniquely designed, combining natural, locally-sourced, recycled materials and traditional Sri Lankan craftsmanship. They are not sealed off from the outside - nature is invited to come in.
All the cabins and huts are located in a property of 2.5 acres. This keeps the space calm and peaceful, perfect for yoga and meditation practice, or just lazing around.
We serve food in our Seafood Restaurant. We offer a gentle fusion of Sri Lankan and western dishes, made with fresh, locally grown ingredients. We are vegetarian-, vegan-, raw-vegan- and gluten-free-friendly.
Our staff members are all from the surrounding communities, and we are committed to their personal and professional development.
The beginning of Valampuri Kite Resort in Kalpitiya
This project started as a deam in 2015 and, after a lot of hard work, it became real.
When we began building this project with my friend, the land was dumping yard and it took up to four month just for cleaning it up.
Why we created eco resort? I always lived in "concrete boxes", meaning all four walls are cemented, which is why we wanted to build the resort and to get to touch with nature.
During this process, we met Uncle Shell, as known as, Sangu Mama and he explained us the meaning of Valampuri, we realized we came along the perfect name!
