“Great place to hangout and amazing surf guiding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Searching for a place to stay in Bali is actually not that easy. The options are overwhelming. Just search on Google for “Bali accommodation” for example. Not such a good way and for sure not efficient. After looking at different Surf Camps, reading some reviews on trip advisor and comparing prices Bea concluded that Kima Surfcamp is again the place to be. Since the first time she visited Bali a couple of years ago Kima changed a lot. Well, basically it just got bigger. There are now a couple of Kima surfcamps spreaded all over the island. One of them based in Canggu. Which was the camp of choice for Bea and the crew.

Unfortunately the dorms and private rooms where already sold out, therefore there was no other option left than booking one of the Kima surf villas. For swiss measures still affordable, equipped with private pool and countless other amenities – the perfect place to get the jet lag of and get back into surfing, after an amazing swiss winter in Grindelwald.

If you are up to it, you could join 3 surf shuttles a day (there are day trips to Medewi and other surf spots a bit off the beaten track, too). All the trips are rated with stars from 1 (absolute beginner), 2 (starting to surf green waves), 3 (take off and bottom turns should work sometimes) and 4 (safe take off and bottom turns, longer paddle outs).

The Kima guides check the swell, wind and tide forecast and have a tonload of experience, therefore we didn’t have to bother and had always a sweet wave to surf. Sometimes the Kima surf shuttle crew (up to 6 clients and always 2 amazing guides) where the only surfers arround.

At this point we need to thank the guys bigtime. The kima surf guides in Canggu – all locals – where/are as good as (in our opinion) a surfguide can be. Super friendly and motivated. Explaining always perfectly all what matters about the wave, such like channels, underground, currents. They warn you when there are bigger sets / outsides coming, they stoke you and they watch out and help catching waves (shouting when you should paddle). All in all they provide a service that you might not need anymore but you are far better of enjoying all the perks you get when surfing with them.


The Kima guides took us to the following surfspots during the first 6 days of our Bali trip:

- Old Mans

- Batu Balong

- Canggu

- Green Ball

- Medewi

Thanks for the amazing time guys!!

Room Tip: Well, we had the villa which is amazing, you even get a private pool. It might be also a bit more qu...

What a great experience!
The camp offers everything you need to enjoy your surf trip. It's a great location with awesome waves and restaurants (banana pancakes!) within walking distance.
The camp is beautiful,Bali style lounge area, tropical plants and a clean pool.
Really enjoyed the surfing, the guides put in a lot of effort to get you on the wave. It's not a surf school, but the guys make sure you have a good and save surf (if you take the advice/help is up to you, they can't surf for you!) They adjust the daily surfing sessions to the needs of the guests. My boyfriend is an advanced surfer and they took him to Uluwatu, Padang Padang and all the other famous spots. What else can you ask for?? The level of surfing in the camp was quite high during out stay, great experience to go surfing together and challenge your limits!
I was quite disappointed of Bali, but thanks to Kima I had the best holiday ever :)

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Green Room Canggu and our overall experience was better than expected. The pricing and value for money is spot on! We will go back again and I will bring friends, but not too many....crowd control :)

The surf guides are professional, friendly and have oodles of knowledge about the surf spots and conditions. It's humbling how they welcome you as a guest and friend into their waters. I hope all guests return the respect they are given. There are plenty of great surf spots right out front of the camp and you have the option to be driven to the next spot of your choice depending on your surfing level. Go see for yourself - whatever your level, the Bali wave machine is never switched off. You haven't taken the time to learn the local language. No problem. All guides and staff have competent conversational English skills.

The camp is very well run: our room (incl on-suite) was clean and the beds comfortable. There was daily house keeping and we had NO problems with any bugs. The in-house kitchen / restaurant was clean and the food was awesome - I felt at home as a vegetarian. Oh, take the time and try local food dishes.

Lastly, this is still an island and there are plenty of open river mouths at surf spots. Be careful with the reef and bring your own medical aid kit to treat minor cuts etc...

Room Tip: We had a twin room. Request a room on the top floor so you have a view of the surf. You will invite...

The surf camp was an overall amazing experience. From the staff at the resort to the instructors a great recommendation to all. Also went there by myself and made great friends. The place attracts a good group of young surfers. The place has an overall great positive vibe.

This place is incredible! It's a nice place to stay in general and especially if you like to surf. Everybody is really nice and the guide for surfing are really competent. The location is really cool, it's in the nature and not far from the city of Seminyak and Kuta. I plan to go back as soon as possible!

This surf camp is just amazing! As soon as I arrived I felt at home and very welcomed! The staff and surf guides are wonderful and always lending a helping hand. I love how you get to go surfing twice a day with the guides during the week, as well as other options for the weekends including culture tours and beach days! The camp is close to two beaches (walking distance) so if I wanted to go surfing on top of the two surfing excursions i could just walk the 5 minutes and go.
The rooms were clean and large and the bathroom... just cool! Restaurant at camp was good but there are a lot of nice restaurants within walking distance. Echo Beach is about a 10 minute walk away. Taxi to Seminyak or Kota are very easy to get and cost around $10-15. I felt comfortable walking around the area by myself and late at night, and never worried about my stuff in my room. They provide a safe for anything of value to help put your mind at ease.
I will definitely be going back to this camp soon to see all the lovely staff and work on my surfing!
Love you and miss you already Kima!!!
