Global Surf Lodge Kabalana delivers an all inclusive retreat that will provide you with a seamless surf experience from the moment you arrive. The 12 chalets, designed to feel like a quaint village are nestled just off the sun kissed shores of Kabalana in Southern Sri Lanka. Every day is filled with waves, good company and the magic of local coastal communities.

The Location:

Sri Lanka, often called the teardrop of the Indian Ocean, is a surfer’s paradise with its diverse landscapes, vibrant culture, and incredible surf spots.

In Kabalana Lodge, you’ll wake up to the sound of the ocean, which offers year-round swell and surf. The main season in the South runs from November to April, when the waters are at their clearest and the waves are consistently good.

Due to the convenient location, Global Surf are able to offer excursions that showcase the island’s rich cultural and natural heritage. Beyond the waves, guests can immerse themselves in the beauty of Sri Lanka’s ancient temples, verdant tea plantations, and the thrill of nature on safaris.

The Food & Accommodation:

Global Surf Lodge Kabalana is designed to be a home away from home for surfers and travellers, combining modern comfort with the charm of Sri Lankan culture. The lodge is designed as a village of 12 chalets, which features spacious rooms with air conditioning, private open-air bathrooms, and serene views – ensuring a restful recovery after a day out in the water.

There’s a variety of room options, from private suites for those seeking solitude to communal rooms where guests can mingle and meet likeminded people. Communal areas are thoughtfully designed and daily shared dinners take place under the stars.

You will be nourished with an all-inclusive spread spiced with the flavours of Sri Lanka and beyond. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included with a number of different options to choose from.

The Surf:

Kabalana itself is famous for the “A-Frame” spot aka “The Rock” a peak that offers both left and right breaks, ideal for intermediate to advanced surfers, while nearby spots offer gentler waves for beginners. These guys also know a few secret spots too.
