I'm sorry you had such a bad experience. Most of our reviews will show that this is not the norm. We are very flexible for our guests and hopefully we get an opportunity to correct this action.

About
Description
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 More 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. Less
