In Sri Lanka, just two hours from the airport and three hours north of Colombo, is an unspoilt peninsula of golden sand. Here lies a blissfully secluded resort with luxury tented accommodation on Alankuda beach. The bluest of skies melts seamlessly into the azure of the Indian Ocean to make a picture-perfect backdrop to a unique, tailor-made tropical holiday experience. Welcome to Dolphin Beach Resort Kalpitiya!
This new concept of stylish, eco-beach accommodation is for the discerning traveller in search of an unforgettable holiday. Spacious and comfortable, our air conditioned tents present a world of romance with a unique ambience and view of the sea.
Our partner kitesurf centre is within 10km of the property - but free kiting is possible directly from the beach at the hotel. Experience the thrill of sea safaris to the nearby Bar Reef for the best Sri Lanka has to offer in snorkeling and be entertained by the dolphins and whales on your way. April to November offers one of the best places in the world for kite surfing. Enjoy the tranquil ocean with the most beautiful coral gardens of Sri Lanka. Or just work hard on your tan. The sunsets at Dolphin Beach are of the spectacular kind and a perfect end to idyllic days, every day.
If it’s rest and relaxation that you are looking for, your search ends at Dolphin Beach. The soothing throb of the mighty Indian Ocean and the gentle rustling of palm fronds, combine with unspoilt golden beaches to make Dolphin Beach an oasis of paradise.
Spacious, air-conditioned tents offer a decadent space of relaxation after a hard day of sun and fun, providing a perfect balance between romance and adventure. Dotted amidst a grove of coconut palms, and set well apart, the custom-made tents take their names from the different species of dolphins – Spinner, Bottlenose, Humpback, Risso’s, Fraser, Spotted and Striped, etc .
Each tent features a spacious verandah, providing welcome shade during the day. Sumptuous interiors with king-size beds and unique furnishings turn these living spaces into an intimate and cozy hideaway. Chic en suite bathrooms, replete with rain-showers top off the ultimate luxury tented-living experience.
As you soak in the sun and revel in the action by day, be pampered by our spontaneous but unobtrusive hospitality. At days end, sink into blissful slumber, lulled by the sound of crashing waves and the wind rustling through the thatch.
This is certainly not camping…its paradise redefined.
The open dining pavilion allows the cool ocean breeze to whet your appetite as you enjoy our island cuisine. Authentic Sri Lankan meals are beautifully served in traditional clay pots.
An à la carte menu offers a range of international fare throughout the day and night. Dinner buffets are often "Action Stations" where the meals are prepared in front of you. Or try our authentic wood-fired pizzas and a range of pastas – a great hit with the kids!
We will be delighted to organise beach barbeques too with a little notice. Also recommended is breakfast served on the beach adjacent to the dining pavilion.
Our meals are prepared using the freshest ingredients sourced locally and purchased on the same day to ensure optimum freshness. Dolphin Beach's specialty lies in seafood, caught on the day and cooked to your preference.
