Where to stay during your kitesurfing holidays?

Well, we have been upgrading our two resorts during the pandemic situation:

At the moment, DE SILVA WINDRESORT is still considered as a Level 1 Hotel for all those who are not fully vaccinated. Therefore the legal quarantine period of 14 nights still applies, as well as the 2 mandatory PCR tests (40USD/test) and the Covid insurance (12USD/1month).

We have renovated the cabanas and also renovated the standard rooms.

It should be mentioned that we also offer optional air-conditioned rooms and cabanas at the Windresort for those who like it cooler!

Our second resort, the 2** PALM RESORT has a large swimming pool and a new restaurant with kitchen. This is especially nice! All vaccinated guests and guests who have a legal quarantine behind them are welcome to book overnight stays here.

For all companions who don’t like water sports we offer beside the relaxing swimming pool also many activities like billiard, table tennis, volleyball, free wifi, books, badminton, bodega, slake line, children’s trampoline, archery and much more.

If you are interested in Ayurveda massages or even weight loss treatments, our professionally managed Veda SPA directly in the De Silva 2** PALM RESORT is the best place for you. Details about the offer can be found on our homepage!
