Our last station on our 1-month-srilanka-travel was kalpitiya, where we stayed at this beautiful resort. It was a perfect terminating rest and we really enjoyed every minute. The Diyamba is orientated to the maledives resorts and catches up a very similar feeling, due to it's great calm surrounding. The food is delicous and our room was a clean and comfortable... More

We spent a week in the resort, and from the moment we arrived, we felt that our stay would be a good one. We were not wrong. Set on the edge of the beach, 300 metres from the sea, the setting was charming. The accommodation (we booked one of the chalets) was no-frills functional inside, where essentially we only slept....

Very good food! We were overcharged (prices on agoda not correct?) And someone else booked our room while we were staying so we had to leave suddenly after only one night. Rooms are nice but very basic. Activitiez are quite expensive so there is not so much you can do.

Thanks for the review. Unfortunately, we do not have control over the Agoda site. Agoda posts a price on the initial screen as part of their marketing that does not include taxes and fees. It’s true of all hotels listed on their site. When you checkout online at Agoda all those extras get added in and it adds up to... More

The food was excellent, the snorkeling was better than Hawaii and there are dolphins everywhere. The beaches also were quiet. The hotel was also extremely clean and the staff was very attentive and courteous. We were happy to find such a cool place to stay and relax at.

The food was really good, especially the crabs. The best part was snorkeling in the reefs and see in the dolphins, but a close second was the secluded beach overlooking the calm waters of the warm ocean. Plan on coming back for sure. Thanks for showing us a great time. We'll be back.

If you like lazing around on a hammock with a cool beer in your hand, going on a boat ride with very accommodating and friendly guides to watch something that looks like it was filmed for the discovery channel (i.e. dolphins), to snorkel near a coral reef and perhaps run into a reef shark or two, to have your fill...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in a cove on the sands of the west coast of Sri Lanka is a beach resort called Diyamba ("the deep blue"). Diyamba is the ONLY resort located on the Kanthakkuliya Beach in Kalpitiya, on the north-west arm that branches off the island. Enjoy the private and secluded experience that will bring total comfort and relaxation to your world. At Diyamba there is no offseason. Depending on the time of year a bevy of experiences awaits you. Kitesurfing, Dolphin and Whale watching, Snorkeling at the Bar Reef or a picturesque ride through the mangroves on the lagoon side of Wilpattue National Park are among the many activities available to you. Off the shores of Diyamba is where a killer whale (Orca), was spotted, the first documented sighting in almost 100 years. The colorful marine life and majestic sunsets are guaranteed to leave you refreshed and relaxed on your next vacation. ... more   less
