I find places to stay, which over the years I will always go back to and I found Kite House Cafe, in Kalpitiya. Here I could stay forever. Simple, uncomplicated, an outdoor shower, a place which is absolutely laid back. I take my morning coffee...and sit next to a small lagoon and watch a solitary Kite Surfer. The cafe dog sits next to me.More

very different and unusual cafe to dine in, food very good, very chilled out, note though bring mosquito repellent with you as open air surrounded by bushes and trees,,,,,,, but would highly recommend.

This is a restaurant run by a Spanish and Sri Lankan couple. The menu is mostly Spanish European which was perfect for me since I was a tad tired of curries. I shared with friends the pizza, the pulled pork wrap and the spicy shredded...chicken wrap. All food was well prepared and thoughtfully presented. It’s a lovely beach side place, very laid back. I highly recommend it!More

Stayed there for 4 nights , very nice vibes and the owner and staff was very nice , the room is basic and the food is great. I did use their airport pickup that went perfect. The owner wasn't there most of the time but...he was available by mail and made sure everything is good . Very recommended for traveling on a short budget.More

No. But there are ATMs at the airport and at Kalpitiya. Payment with the credit card was almost nowhere possible in the small guest houses around Kappalady.
