A fantastic yet basic Cabana style resort with its own Kitesurf and Watersportscentre (SUPs, Windsurf etc). Great value for money, with great staff and atmosphere. Although it lacks some of the fundamental elements it makes up for that with its location and service. Upul de Silva and his team will look after you and provide essential services (cold beer!!!) .Those looking for a bit more refinement should consider Divyaa Resort
Overview of De Silva Resort
The De Silva Resort is located directly on the Kalpitiya Lagoon next to the Indian Ocean (North-West-Coast of Sri Lanka), this is possibly the best flat water spot in Sri Lanka. The property offers Cabana style accommodations either individual or collective cabanas under one covering coconut palm roof. Currently (19/5/14) the property's electricity is powered by generator and this prevents air conditioning in the rooms - there are plans to switch to static power, however this is not so easily done in Sri Lanka!
Service levels are very high at De Silva Resort and the team will endeavor to look after any specific request you might have.
