Although we weren't kite-surfers we enjoyed being at Kalpitiya to be somewhere different and a place to be quiet and do nothing but relax. Rubén has a great simple place that we thoroughly enjoyed. The food from over the fence is superb, Rubén is very friendly and kind and the staff are terrific....so are Eduardo and Tommy.
I spent only one night at Ruben´s place but I would love to stay for long... The tropical chalet is located in a small neighborhood surrounded by hundreds of coconut palms and it is a very natural area. The wooden chalet is very charming, with nice design and with plenty of space inside too. What I liked most is the outdoor bathroom and the comfort of the mattress! I totally recommend it.
Very comfortable room located in a quiet area. The beach is about 20 minutes by walk and 5 minutes by bike. Although we didn´t come for kitesurfing, we loved the place. Ruben was not there during our stay but the locals who run the place treated us very well.
