This “surf camp” delivers the goods when it comes to location, as you can’t get closer to the waves unless you’re on a surfboard. Dorms and private rooms are offered as bed only, so for sustenance head to their beachfront cafe and for surfing lessons or board hire, the friendly front desk. Even if you just want to hit the beach and not the waves, this is a terrific pick.

Old-school bunks.

On offer is a handful of old-school bunk-bed style six-bed mixed dorms overlooking a decent-sized deep swimming pool, with beanbag-furnished chill areas outside and share bathrooms below. For a little more dosh (and well worth it), go for the four-bed mixed or female dorms with ensuite, or private doubles and twins, all with spectacular sea-facing balconies, TV, DVD player and mini-fridge.

Tiled air-con dorms offer large comfortable wooden bunks with clean linen. If you’re afraid of heights, go for a bottom bunk, as they’re built for surfing giants (really high). You’ll need a torch for reading in bed, and may have to fight for the limited power sockets (perhaps pack a small powerboard). Lockers are surfboard size, so there's plenty of room for bags and your treasured stick. Sliding glass doors are curtained, but the thin drapes will probably mean an early rise to catch the best waves; bring an eyeshade if you’d rather a sleep-in. Share hot-water bathrooms are clean and smart and offer additional small lockers to keep your toiletries.

Communal chill area.

Private and premium dorms are a bit of a climb up to the third floor, but hey, that means a better view. For a bit of chill, an air-con lounge enjoys a TV and library, or stretch out on the poolside deck on a shaded sun lounge. The area around the pool and cafe gets busy with not just folk staying here, but outside surf school attendees too. If you’re in Bali to lean to surf or improve your skills, Pro Surf School and Camp offer lesson packages as well as just a bed.

We think this is a good deal and as you’re not locked into surfing if you just want a bed by the sea, which means surfing and non-surfing friends and partners can stay together. For a more intensive surf only camp, check out The Green Room in Seminyak or one of the many surf camps in Canggu.
