Kitesurfing In Mannar

Mannar Island in Sri Lanka is a dream kitesurfing location with pristine conditions, few other kitesurfers on the water, 16 kilometres of flatwater conditions and the most stable, consistent winds Sri Lanka has to offer. The wind stability and strength is fantastic in Mannar, due to the venturi effect, that pushes air between the landmass of Sri Lanka and India creating a pressure difference and dream kitesurfing conditions. You can experience miles of flatwater conditions as well as a mix of wave action on the windward side of the Adam's Bridge. 

The wind conditions here are heavenly during the summer season from May to October and the winter season from January to March. The kitesurfing spot is situated right outside your cabana. Set out, pump and off you go Kitesurfing! Adam’s Bridge offers protective sand banks that not only ensure flat water conditions for freestyle but great places for those who want to learn the sport!

Book & Tea Tour

Discover Sri Lanka's rich diversity on this fantastic tour. The first part of the tour visits a tea plantation where you will experience the local lifestyle centred around tea production. Watch the tea plucking process, visit a tea factory and learn the secret art of tea. Enjoy high tea in your bungalow every day with author Ashok Ferrey.

Ashok is Sri Lanka’s biggest-selling author in English. His work takes a satirical look at the complex and often inscrutable lives of Sri Lankans. Ashok is the author of five books – two collections of short stories (Colpetty People, The Good Little Ceylonese Girl) and three novels (Serendipity, The Professional, The Ceaseless Chatter of Demons). Of these five, four have been shortlisted for the Gratiaen Prize (Sri Lanka’s premier literary award, founded and funded by Michael Ondaatje), and the fifth for Sri Lanka’s State Literary Award. His most recent book (Demons) will be translated into French and published by Mercure de France (Gallimard) in the spring of 2018.  You will pick three of his books to review with Ashok during the days of this tour. Learn from Ashok Ferry as he chronicles the journeys of characters, seeking something beyond the barriers of nations and generations. Read about his tales of social-climbing Sri Lankans, of the pathos of immigration, of rich people with poor taste, of ice-cream karma, of innocent love, eternity, and more. He accurately portrays Sri Lanka in all its diversity. Ashok Ferrey writes about Sri Lanka and its people, wherever they roam, with remarkable acuity. 

The second half of your journey visits one of the most breathtaking lake front properties in Asia – Tri. Flanking Sri Lanka's finest lake, this luxury hotel features living walls, green roofs, solar hot water, recycled wood and is made of entirely local materials.
