A beautiful spread of a property with the lagoon on one side and the ocean on the other. My partner and I visited it for a couple of nights and stayed in a round villa. A tastefully done cottage with attention to details according to the surroundings - there were umbrella, mosquito coils and a torch neatly placed. The layout...

We stayed at Elements to get a break from hectic life in Hong Kong, enjoy its remote location and empty unspoilt beaches, soak up the sun, read, relax and in-between, try our luck with kite surfing. We definitely got all of that, and, on top, enjoyed a wonderful time with the resort hosts and staff as well as the other...

Me and my brother went to the Elements Kiteresort as absolute beginners with our goal: Kitesurfing and relaxing. In this 2 weeks we learned how to kite and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. The resort is in synergy with the local nature with their bungalows or cabanas and the staff there is very kind, respectful and helpful. The Kite-Instructorteam is very...

This is a tricky review as there are some great bits and some less good! We came specifically to kitesurf and weren't disappointed as both the wind and location is great. Fantastic flat lagoons with lots of space and the ocean side is also good. The Staff were amazingly friendly and really looked after us and the chef and food...

We came for the kite surfing - lagoon on one side of a narrow strip of beach, and ocean on the other side. This makes a great setting for budding kite surfers. We were taught well by Mike, the resident pro, but were disappointed that we only had 2 good days of wind in 4, so all up we only...

Ideal for relaxing in the swimming pool, nice place to learn kitesurfing and for beginners as well, cos the beach boys are really helpful an always keep an eye on you. You can also practice paddle surf in the nice lagoons surronding the hotel. Good sri lankan food and the staff were really nice.

I've been to Elements resort a number of times. Each time more improvements were visible. However, the prices have just become too high for what you get. I paid 150 EURO per night for villa where, during my 7 day stay, at least half of the time I didn't have running water (hot or cold), electricity was intermittent at best...

Dear josdevries0031, Thank you for your feedback. Sad to hear that you feel ripped off this time while you seemed to have a good time at Elements during the stay before that. Water supply: Obviously there was a problem with the water supply, which is not acceptable in this price class, we fully agree with you. In the meantime we...
