we booked original 5 nights, but after the first night we decide to leave this property. The resort is in my opinion far to overpriced for this what you get there. The beach is dirty and the kite rental far to expensive.

About
Description
In Sri Lanka, just two hours from the airport and three hours north of Colombo, is an unspoilt peninsula of golden sand. Here lies a blissfully secluded resort with luxury tented accommodation on Alankuda beach. More The bluest of skies melts seamlessly into the azure of the Indian Ocean to make a picture-perfect backdrop to a unique, tailor-made tropical holiday experience. Welcome to Dolphin Beach Resort Kalpitiya! This new concept of stylish, eco-beach accommodation is for the discerning traveller in search of an unforgettable holiday. Spacious and comfortable, our air conditioned tents present a world of romance with a unique ambience and view of the sea. Experience the thrill of sea safaris to the nearby Bar Reef for the best Sri Lanka has to offer in snorkeling and be entertained by the dolphins and whales on your way. April to November offers one of the best places in the world for kite surfing. Enjoy the tranquil ocean with the most beautiful coral gardens of Sri Lanka. Or just work hard on your tan. The sunsets at Dolphin Beach are of the spectacular kind and a perfect end to idyllic days, every day. Less
