Professional, concierge service from pre-reservation, booking, planning, FAQs, special-needs meals, customized surf coaching, to transportation back to the airport. Charlie provided patient service from the start. Chefs Juan & Geiner cooked delicious meals, photographer Diego, and the surf crew (Junior, Henry, Andres, Roberto) were all so kind & encouraging. I never went hungry, in fact I gained weight. My only... More

Kalon Surf was top notch. Everything from the room, the food, the surf coaching was amazing. I could not have asked for a better weeks vacation and HIGHLY recommend Kalon Surf to anyone considering. It was one of the best weeks I've had and will remember it for a lifetime.

Loved the team, loved the staff. I have stayed at other surf retreats in Bali but nothing compares to Kalon for surf coaching and analysis. Loved the time in the water but the video analysis with the group was one of the best parts! Roberto, Andres, Henry and Jr. were great. Diego took amazing videos. Food was fantastic, rooms and...

In one week we had 25 hours of surf, great food, excellent accomodations, all in a very relaxing environment (what a massage!) served by a very careful and competent staff. A week to be repeated in the future. Thanks Kalon staff!

I have stayed at Kalon twice now. The first time was in the old house -- one of the best trips I have ever taken -- but the new mansion is beautiful - sleek, comfortable, and well-maintained. The only difference now, though, is that they take you to a different break than before. It's a beach break that moves around... More

Unfortunately the surfing conditions were not everyday ideal (El Nino...) even, the 'old', more crowded, beach had the same issues. We can control a lot (with not optimal conditions, the surf coaches check the other beaches before hand... More
