At DE SILVA surfbar you can order fresh cocktails, coconuts, soft drinks and lion beer.

During your whole stay at De Silva we will take care of your well being – so just have a great time in Kalpitiya!


Kalpitiya as a region is very strongly influenced by fishing. After the first tourists found their way to Kalpitiya about 10 years ago (after the end of the war), traditional handicrafts can be seen everywhere. Through the booming tourism a lot has changed. The profitable economy offers many families a new livelihood and promotes growth in all areas. De Silva is considered the initiator of water sports tourism in Kalpitiya and was one of the first to introduce Kalpitiya as a kitesurfing and windsurfing spot to the world and to market it as such.

Just a 5 minutes ride with a tuck tuck you reach the center of Kalpitiya town. Even there are not many attractions, you have the option to get a insight of the real life Sri Lankan inhabitants. In terms of progress, Sri Lanka is still behind the European standards in many ways, but you can still see tradition craftsmanship! 

De Silva Charity - What we do for others...

As a hotel company and kite school in Sri Lanka, we overtake responsibility for natural environment! De Silva does not withdraw from this topic and tries to take a leading role!

We have changed our hotel business into plastic free. 

We try as much as possible to avoid waste when buying food for the hotel. 

We hope to create awareness by cleaning Kalpitiya´s beach & streets!

But also we support the poor families and school children in Kalpitiya with school books and clothes.

There´s a lot more…
