What a great getaway place! Spent 4 nights at Elements at the beginning of a 2 week trip to Sri Lanka and was sad to leave.
Everything is perfect: wonderful location, great staff, spacious bungalow, very clean and tidy overall. Food is good and the buffet changes every night.
Had a great time with other guests, Keith(the resort manager) as well as Felix (the kite instructor) . I didn't do any kite surfing but enjoyed the sea and pool. There are a couple of excursions to be made in the surrounding area : Kalpitiyia , St-Anne Church, Dolfin safari...
Environment protection is not a marketing concept here, led lights , solar panels and local empowerment are the visible side of their nature preservation approach to tourism.
Luxury touch : the private openair waterfall style shower attached to each bungalow is just pure luxury.
thanks for this wonderful experience : was perfect to unconnect from our Internet driven world.

We stayed as a family of 4 for 5 nights in August. Well worth the trip. Staff is extremely friendly, food is yummy, and the bungalows spacious, clean and modern. Great for the beginner kiter and experienced. Wasn't too much to do for our 2 small children though. But there is a good-size pool. and babysitting is available. Would definitely return.

After a one week roundtrip around Sri Lanka in May'13 we stayed for 6 nights at Elements Resort for kitesurfing and relaxing. It was really worth the trip. 24h perfect wind conditions, like Brazil in autumn. Perfect flatwater conditions on the two lagoons with few kiters on the water and the open sea just next to it. Our bungalow was very comfortable with much space and nice surroundings, only about 15m from the lagoon. The room was very clean and what we really enjoyed was the outdoor shower. The staff was always friendly and attentive. The traditional Sri Lankan food was freshly cooked and always tasty. We can only recommend this resort to everybody and we will visit it again, for sure!

We stayed there with friends in July & September 2012& the experience was just perfect. Nice people, good food, as per order, fresh fruits, sea food, srilankan cuisine . Clean, huge & comfortable bungalows. Max 10 minutes beach walk to small lagoon, where you can expertise your kitesurfing moves. If you are fancy of open sea kitesurfing, there is no walk required at all. The resort is basically located between lagoon & the open sea.

young family stayed 5 days in the awesome Elements Resort. The bungalows are really spacious and provide plenty of room with its stylish outdoor shower and the big veranda for the 4 of us. Lots of nice details and great design. the overlook restaurant is a bit small but provides great food and and a perfect view over the ocean and the lagoon. our two Boys loved to play in the pool, my wife took long walks on the beach and I enjoyed the constant winds with kitesurfing mostly on the ocean. Rental kite material is also in excellent condition.
So we definitely enjoyed our stay at the Elements Resort with its great service in its unspoiled surrounding and with great kitesurfing. We'll come back

We are a young couple and stayed at elements resort for five days in late March/beginning of April '13. At first the wind kept us waiting a bit but that wasn’t a problem at all as there is so much to experience apart from kiting such as stand-up paddling through the mangroves in the lagoon, relaxing by the stunning infinity pool, dolphin watching or a visit to nearby Wilpattu national park (where we’ve seen wild elephants and leopards).

The resort is located very nicely with the sea in front of it and the lagoon in the back you are basically on a peninsula. The bungalows are beautifully designed and spacious, they chose plain but elegant materials that are in perfect harmony with nature, which we liked a lot. The open air shower is definitely a highlight!! The managers took great care of us, and were helping in planning our trip and organizing transportation. On top of this, the food (we were on half board) was excellent, especially Ajith’s freshly made shrimps curry is one of a kind (best in Sri Lanka, if not in the universe)!

All in all, it was really a perfect stay, we felt at home immediately and definitely will come back very soon to this unique spot of land!!
