“It doesn't get any better !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

I would just like to say a BIG thankyou to Ayu, Jas, Rendy & the wonderful staff for making our two week stay at Damai Bungalows such a great experience.
From the time we arrived till the time we departed, this trip was just truely amazing.
The food was sooooooooooooo good, it was out of this world !!! Ayu, Selma, Lilly & Agus take so much pride in their cooking, dishing out the most amazing recipes, nothing was ever too much trouble for them.
Jas & Ayu were such great hosts, who were only too happy to ensure everybody really enjoyed themselves, whether it being surfing, fishing, snorkelling, travelling to extinct volcanoes,visiting coffee plantations exploring the coconut coast line or just sitting on the deck at the end of the day and having an icey cold beer or three..... we even had a trip organised for us to see a Rock Concert in Krui ..... Unreal!!!
Damai is at such a good location, The complex is very well designed with a great wave straight out the front.
The rooms were comfortable and clean with good water supply and the security was so good that we just left everything open.
We met so many truely amazing people who were so friendly,
I would recommend Damai to anybody who loves a good time and wants a great surfing adventure.
Cheers Jon.

We have just returned from a two week stay at Damai bungalows in south Sumatra. This was our second trip to this awesome place and I really can't recommend it more highly.

Jason, Ayu and their wonderful team make you feel right at home from the second they greet you and the vibe remains the same until you reluctantly have to leave. While it is super casual the place is spotlessly clean, the bintangs icy cold (always good after a full day surfing the point) and the food from Ayu and the girls is always incredibly delicious!

The wave out front (literally just out the gate!) is a long peeling left and kicking off in the bay up to 300m from the top of the point will leave you grinning from ear to ear. Its a great take off, barrel section, then a wall built for speed and carving. Its super consistent as well. But if that's not enough for you there is a broad range of other waves in the area from semi mellow beachies to heaving slab barrels. Jas has a vast knowledge of everything the area has to offer depending on swells, winds and tides.

The area is pretty remote and ideal for seeing true Indo, unspoilt by tourists, hotels, etc. The locals are good people, plenty of smiles around here.

Damai is suitable for everyone from solo travelers, couples, families or groups. We had nine in our group and everyone had a ball.

This is my absolute favorite destination and I can't wait to get back there. For anyone looking for an awesome spot to stay where you really are made to feel right at home, with great waves, amazing food, nice rooms, wonderful people in a true paradise then I highly recommend you make a visit to Damai bungalows. You'll love it!

Ok First lets start with the location and the surf. "Ground Hog Day" We arrived, the surf was pumping....every other day, the surf was pumping, when your sleeping...the surf is pumping, Unreal. The Damai Bungalows are the best place to stay on the point, period The staff are super friendly and when Agus, Lilly and Selma hit the dance floor the place lights up. Jason and Chook are great hosts and from the moment you arrive you feel part of the place, the atmosphere is relaxed friendly and flexible. The food is 5 star, Ayu loves to cook, theres plenty of it, heaps of variety and it all tastes great. Facilities are kept very clean and tidy, we actually ate off the kitchen floor with the staff a couple of times......I won't do that at home! The complex is secure, we stayed 2 weeks and our door was open for the whole time. Beers are cold. The water pressure in the outside shower is the best. Rendy, the resident grommet is not only a great little surfer, he looked after us and took us surfing, we all wanted to take him home with us. You can stay at the point for less money, but ask yourself the question.......why would you? The local vibe is like Bali 30 years ago, the water is clean and clear. Our group of 6 surfers loved the place and I wouldn't hesitate to recomend the Bungalows the staff and the experience to anyone.
Thanks Jas, Ayu, Rendy and staff will see you again soon.

I recently spent 11nights in Damai Bungalows and everything about it was amazing. When you arrive the hosts make you feel at home. . The place is
spotlessly clean, the location is awesome, the design is splendid, the food is just amazing - delicious! The staff were well dressed, helpful and friendly. They are constantly asking if you need anything, what your preferences are for food. Because it is all inclusive, the food was more than abundant and changed daily. The facilities were perfect! It was very safe - I travel a lot to many different countries and I found this place to be so unique and untouched - I left my door open for days, never locked it once. You come to this place to surf and to experience one of the few untouched places left. thanks damai will see you again .

Room Tip: All the room are great.

We stayed at Damai Bungalows for 2 weeks. We are pretty well travelled and I can honestly say it was one of the best holidays ever.
You can't beat the location - there is a long left hander directly out the front. Its a fun wave for all abilities (including mine which is average). We surfed everyday and I got some of the best waves of my life. There are other breaks a motor cycle/car trip up or down the coast.
The bungalows are comfortable, clean, spacious and have ceiling fans to keep you cool. Each bungalow has its own bathroom complete with a rain water shower and western toilet
The food is amazing - fresh and varied and full of taste and oh so much of it! (I heard from lots of people in the water that Damai had the best food in the area)
The atmosphere is relaxed, welcoming and fun - there is a maximum of12 people staying which makes it really comfortable and friendly. We met some top people and had lots of good times and laughs with them!
A well stocked bar that over looks the surf, hammocks, Corona Drinking deck (from a place you'd rather be), gardens, coconut trees, massages, pool table, ping pong... this place is top notch!
Importantly, the staff are fantastic. Ayu and the staff make it all too easy to have a blast! They are so friendly, helpful, fun and accommodating. Organising transport or whatever is hassle-free.
Take it on! I definitely want to go back.

Damai Bungalows was recommended to us from a friend with the words "its the best place there".
I have to heartily agree with this recommendation.
As a group of 10 surfers travelling together in Sumatra we thought logistics on getting there could be a problem.
However the transfers to and from Damai Bungalows was seamless and this is thanks to the organisational efforts of the staff.
On arrival we were blown away with the accomodation and the location (you couldn't get closer to the surf break).
The staff were friendly and approachable and couldn't do enough for you.
The food was fantastic and very fresh , and most importantly the beer was extremely cold and abundant.
The rooms were very clean and spacious and the open air bathrooms very cool.
Our surf guide was very knowledgable and showed us the way to all the good spots.
As an indication of how good it was several of our group have already booked again for next year with one going back after only 3 months at home. (wish we all could).
Thanks again to Ayu and her staff for making the trip one of the best ever.
