Both my wife and I are avid kitesurfers, and we like to discover new spots all over the world.
Recently, Sri Lanka got our attention as a hidden treasure, with excellent kitesurfing conditions.
After doing our online search and a couple of phone calls, we decided on Sethawadiya Dolphin view Lodge in Kalpitia.
I'm glad to say we were not disappointed. The lodge is situated right on one of the prime spots of Sri Lanka, and the Deluxe Bungalow offers unrestricted views on beautiful lagoon.
The bungalows are rather simple, but with their traditional construction the room climate is very pleasant.
One of the best thing of the stay was the staff: always very friendly and helpful, very attentive and nice. You could not ask for more.
They cook both Sri Lankan and European style dishes, and adjust the preferences of the guests.
Our little daughter was also very well received. She loved to play with the two dogs of the house , which are very friendly.
So overall, we are very pleased and sure to come back.
