Best surfcamp I've stayed at so far! Kima really does a great job of making you feel at home. The guides are super helpful and fun and always have an eye out for you in the water. I think I've learned more in the 2.5 weeks here than in all the camps before! I liked it so much that I... More

If you're committed to surfing and don't want to bother on reading forecasts and accessing beaches this place is great. The accommodation and breakfast are great too. Optionally you can do other stuff than just surfing (which I'm not interested in). But if your girl-/boyfriend isn't too interested in surfing, Kima will take care of that too. The manager and...

The surfcamp in Seminyak has everything you need: great surf guides (Made!), clean and nice facilities close to the beach and center, best breakfast ever, helpful staff and cool people. No room for improvement.

Came here totally solo and can't say enough good things about my trip. I originally booked for a week in the 4 person dorms and ended up staying for two, wish I could have stayed forever! The guides are some of the most generous people you'll ever have the pleasure of getting to know, not to mention amazing surfers. They... More

Exactly what it looks like in the pictures! Great value to have accommodation, breakfast and two surf lessons included per day. The instructors are friendly, approachable, really help fine tune the small details to help you learn to surf. Starting as a beginner, they had me standing on a board by the end of the first hour on day one.... More

I stayed for five nights at Kima. It's organized well for surfers with a couple of organized outings per day, based on level. (For a complete beginner, I strongly booking 3 days of lessons with Rip Curl, which I reviewed separately. Kima can take of this booking.) I found the staff and the guides to be great. The restaurante makes... More

My time here was u deniably one of the best vacations here. Since Seminyak was full they told me I had to stay at Berawa and I was pleasantly surprised. Although smaller, I found it amazing to become closer to those as we were a more intimate group. In fact the surf was better too as we had less per... More

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

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
