I stayed in Premier Surf Camp (PSC) for a week in the deluxe room and was a memorable experience. The verdict is that if I ever return to Canggu I might end up staying here again.
So whats good about the place
Value for money - Clean and large room, with a large and comfortable bed. I never had any problems with my sleep, so full marks to the bed. The aircon was also functioning very well. Cold and hot water at all times. The balconies face the pool and offers a good view. The pool is great for a dip on a hot afternoon.
Helpful Staff: Everyone from the staff at the reception, the owner, the surf instructor were super helpful.
Location: This is on a quiet beach probably called the Perernan beach. There are one or two decent cafe's on the beach though. Compared to the beaches closeby, Echo and Batu Bolong. Batu Bolong and the street leading to it has the most number of hotels and cafe's. Echo comes next and the most peaceful being Perernan. You are most likely to rent a bike so the location does not matter since all these beaches are just 1-2 kms apart from each other. I used to walk from one beach to another but the distance depends on whether you can cross the channel separating Echo and Perernan. Sometimes after heavy rains it swells and you have to take the long route.
Free breakfast and Wifi: The breakfast was delicious and filling. The Wifi was super fast as well.
Surf Instructor: I got surf coaching by Nyoman the resident instructor. Being off season I got 1:1 training and I must say Nyoman put all the effort to get me trained. His English could be better but should say that he gets the job done. His style is more of hit the waters and learn on the field so there is very little theory.
So overall a very pleasant stay and great surfing experience. I met several people who were repeat customers and had opted for long stay at Premier.
The only thing I did not like is the cleaning frequency. During my 7 nights stay, the cleaning was done only once when I asked for it. I even had to ask for the towels to be changed. So my advice to Rai is that he gets 1-2 separate staff for cleaning and changing towels. Its likely that the staff are finding it difficult to multitask between reception, making breakfast, satisfying customer requests etc.
