On 2017 from February 15th to March 15th I was in De Silva Resort at Calpitiya on Sri Lanka. I can not be more happy with my experience. Not knowing where to star I will start with the most satisfying… the personal of the resort. From the manager to the reception to the cook, from the personal at the restaurant...

Found here online after a colleague had gone near here. The place is great, the staff are more than helpful, they are always checking to make sure you are ok and if there is anything else they can do. They are all super friendly. I'm sure if I did have any issues that the staff and management would bend over...

Every day we had 2 hours when we were the only ones in the water before all the other surf resorts came by. The atmosphere, was so fun and incredible with...

The rental equipment is all new and in best condition. That place is run by Srilankan people who's passion is wind and kitesurfing since many years. If you get yourself here there is no reason to...

It's really interesting with DE Silva. Separately, each of the things that count has some flaws. Rooms could be a bit better and have hot water. Food could vary a bit more. Prices could be a bit cheaper. However, all of those things do not really matter. What matters is the big picture. And somehow it turns out that if...
