The rooms were clean, but that was pretty much the only thing that worked at the Berawa camp. The surf guiding was pretty badly organized, as we were always in the wrong place at the wrong time and ended up driving around the Bali looking for waves or waiting at the spot for couple of hours. We were supposed to... More

KimaSurf1995, Director of Sales at KIMA Surfari, responded to this review

Dear Wanderlust_123244, thanks for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you didn't fully enjoy your stay in our surf camp in Berawa. Due to weather- and swell-conditions it was a bit difficult to get some surfable waves for guests with all different abilities of surfing. We tried our best, and especially on days with small swell and hardly... More

I´ve been in october 2015 in Seminyak with my girlfriend. We stayed at the KIMA Surffari. The camp was great and the people were really nice. The surf guides showed us great beaches for surfing and were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back to Seminyak Kimasurf.

I stayed for two weeks at KIMA Seminyak and I'm more than satisfied. The staff is super friendly, welcoming and always very helpful. The surfguides are very good, they always take care of their students and explain a lot during the surftrips. They are always happy and fun. I booked the 3 bed dorm which is very good value for...

We stayed two weeks at Kima surf camps. Great experience - surf instructors are friendly and very competent. You can rent boards of any size in very decent state. Food is awesome and accommodation is excellent.

I don't know where to begin to convey what a great time I had at Kima Surfari Seminyak. I'll start out by saying that the accommodations were great. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was always clean, air conditioning was always cool and the breakfast was amazing. If that was all Kima Surfari Seminyak had to offer, I'd say... More

The location is within walking distance to a beach break and close to all amenities. It is an ideal place for beginner surfers. However, daily surf trips to a reef break are also organised for beginners wanting to improve on their surfing skills. For intermediate/advanced surfers, it is better to stay south of Bali (eg. Padang). The accommodation, staff members... More

I've just visited bali and stayed for 3 weeks at the kima surfcamp in seminyak. I really loved the place. Although seminyak is a very touristic place it's a great starting point if you want to do day trips. There is plenty to see around and everything you need is close by. The food is amazing, staff is very attentive... More

we had unfriendly staff, after a surfaccident we had still to pay the whole amount of the room incl surflesson (we both could not surf anymore). so it was really expensive. the surf guides are not really good teachers. the camp is not usefull for beginners. there are much better camps to choose. would not recommend it!

Hi Gerd, I am sorry to read your contribution here. I call it contribution because it actually is not a review but a numeration of wrong facts without reasonable base. In my opinion you are just frustrated because of your injury on the first day of your 6-day stay with us. Although we refunded you the surfboard rental completely you... More
