I arrived there with two friends on motorbikes, one from Australia and the other from Spain. Our hostess, Ramani Corea, showed us a large fish fresh from a fishing boat and we had an absolutely delicious lunch followed by an exploration of the Kalpitiya peninsula. Dinner was also mouth-wateringly tasty and I went to sleep in a room that got... More

We found this place quite by accident, as our previously-arranged accommodation plans proved to be less than satisfactory. Ramani and her staff accommodated our party of nine individuals for two nights at very short notice. We stayed in the rooms, which were clean, neat and comfortable. There was really nothing that we as a group (an extended family with ages... More

Stayed one night with my family including a 6 month old baby, 6 year old kid and a expecting mom and the staff went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. Food and the service was the best about this place. The washrooms and rooms were worth for the money paid but can surely be made better.... More

Beautiful place and nice rooms! We stayed there for 8 nights, left our kitesurfing gear there and travelled around the country. After that we came back and enjoyed our stay for some days more. The food is the best we’ve had in Sri Lanka, Kenny (the cook and the manager) does a really good job. The rest of the staff... More

I stayed for four nights at Diyamba and I was extremely happy with my stay. It was a very homely and welcoming place, and the staff were helpful and lovely people. The resort was right next to the beach, which we spent every morning on swimming and sunbathing, whilst also meeting many of the local animals - which we absolutely... More

Diyamba is sort of a home away from home kind of place. We love the laid back nature of this simple but very comfortable hotel. The beach is to die for.

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
