The pearl amongst Indonesian surf camps, at Surf House Canguu you’ll be greeted by amazing rooms, a huge outdoor area with pool, great food and world class waves within walking distance.
Surf House Canguu is located only a couple of minutes away from Canguu Beach. Directly out front you’ll find a great wave called “Old Man’s” but along the beach there are plenty more spots that provide surf for beginners and pros alike. If you want to try some other beach breaks you have Echo Beach and Perenenan nearby. For more advanced surfers you have countless reef and point breaks nearby, and with 14 guided surf trips a week you will never have to check a surf report. The team are local surfers and will find the spots for you every night in preparation for the morning surf the next day.
The camp is 10 km from the tourist hub of Kuta, which is far enough to make the area around the camp quiet and peaceful, but close enough that it’s only a short trip if you want to shop or party. The team have a free shuttle to Seminyak every day, and if you want to undertake any other trips they are more than happy to help getting you to the rice fields, ancient Hindu temples or plenty more local attractions.
The camp keeps you busy surfing and exploring all day, then provides the perfect place in the evenings to recharge. Surf House Canguu has a big swimming pool, tropical garden, restaurant and chill area at its heart, with the high-quality, comfortable accommodation surrounding it.
The island of Bali
Known as the Island of the Gods, Bali is definitely the most well-known of the Indonesian Islands, and for good reason. The surf in Bali was discovered in the 30’s, but it wasn’t until the 70’s that Bali became a premier surfing destination. When you arrive you’ll be inundated in amazing surf spots, just let the local crew give you some advice and you’re sure to score some epic waves.
Bali isn’t only this popular because of the great waves however. You have the nightlife with places like Kuta and the full moon beach parties which are known around the globe. You also have the culture and history. The ancient Hindu temples are stunning and well worth exploring. You also have spectacular food, as well as an amazing tropical jungle landscape once you get away from the cities. There really is nothing more that you’d want from an island surf trip.
Only 12 km away from Surf House Canguu you have Tanah Lot. This temple from the 16th century is dedicated to the Balinese god of the ocean, Dewa Baruna. Its sits on a small island close to shore. Best time to go is around sunset to get the best view of the temple. As the sun sets in the ocean behind the temple you get an amazing silhouette, accompanied with the last few surfers catching their last waves for the day.
Warung is an Indonesian Restaurant. There is a great Fish-BBQ on Echo Beach that is well worth trying out. For a few Euros you get a rice meal with your own selection of extras. To go with it you can get a cold Bintang or a freshly made smoothie out of the local, tropical fruit.
The Dorm Rooms are located in a neighbouring building called the Surf Lodge, only a few meters away from the Surf House Canguu. At this location you have an air-conditioned living room, communal kitchen, free Wi-Fi, garden & pool. All 3 of the 6-person rooms are air-conditioned, and all the 6-person rooms have 3 bunkbeds.
You can come to the Surf House at any point and use any of the communal facilities there. You also have the exact same breakfast, surf trips and courses that the guests at the Surf house have. If the walk is too long from one camp to the other, there are free bikes so you can roll.
The Standard Double Rooms are on the top floor of the main building and all have 2 small safes, a ceiling fan & a private bathroom.
If you want a mosquito net the team can put one up for you, just let reception know. There are also chairs on the veranda at your door which is a great place to read, enjoy a drink, or just watch the ocean.
For those people looking for a little more luxury on their surf trip can choose the deluxe double rooms. These rooms have air conditioning, 2 large single beds, a wardrobe, a chill area with a desk, a 32” TV with surf movies as well as plenty of films at reception to borrow. When you choose the Deluxe Double Rooms you will also get a modern bathroom with hairdryer, free toiletries and luxurious towels.
When you stay in the Deluxe Rooms you are on the ground floor. The open plan rooms come with a small private veranda and tropical garden where you can chill between surf sessions. You can also get breakfast brought to your veranda if you want a private breakfast with a friend or loved one.
Both air-conditioned Deluxe Suites are quiet and peaceful. The large windows let you overlook the beautiful tropical garden.
The rooms all have large, modern bathrooms, a TV and DVD player as well as 2 safes. You can choose if you’d like 2 singles, or one large double bed before arriving. Also included in the price are 2 massages per week, per person, and the deluxe daily breakfast.
Deluxe Villa (1 Bedroom)
This luxurious air-conditioned Villa is separated from the main camp and has its own swimming pool, living room with 2 couches, terrace, and private bathroom, making it the perfect spot for couples or small families.
When staying here you get the deluxe breakfast, which you can have brought to your room, and 2 massages per person, per week. You also have a TV, DVD player, sound system, a modern bathroom with rain shower and a small kitchenette.
There is one bedroom with a large king size bed, but the two couches also foldout meaning a total of 4 people can sleep comfortably here. If you like, the team at Surf House Canguu can also set up a child bed in the living room if you are travelling with a baby or toddler.
The way the price is calculated is everybody staying in the Villa pays the standard room price, then an extra 90 € per night is split between the guests. So, if you are a travelling couple, you both pay the standard room price, plus an extra 90 € per night for the villa, so 45 € each extra, per night.
Deluxe Villa (2 Bedrooms) & Deluxe Suite
You can combine the Villa with one of the adjacent Deluxe Suites giving you a two-bedroom apartment, with a private swimming pool, living room with 2 couches, private terrace, and 2 private bathrooms.
When staying here you get the deluxe breakfast, which you can have brought to your room. You also have a TV, DVD player, sound system, a modern bathroom with rain shower and a small kitchenette.
Surf Guiding is included in your stay. You can surf twice a day at spots the local team have picked out. You’ll get helpful tips about your surfing and the waves as well as the chance to take part in video coaching.
The 2 guided surf sessions every day will take you to waves that are perfect for your skill level. Small and mellow for beginners, to big and heavy for pros, and everything in between. The transfers to the beach, point or reef break are included, as are the tips you will get before, and throughout the session from the experienced and local surf coaches.
There is even video coaching 6 days a week to review your surfing when you’re back at camp and point out any problems you might be having. Twice a week there are extra theory courses available to improve your surfing, rules in the surf, and the way you read the waves & the conditions.
Each group is split into surfers who are at the same level, so the guide for you, and the group you are in, will find the perfect spot for you taking into account the season, swell, weather and tide. The groups will be smaller, you’ll have more access to the guides, and the people in your group will push one another. All of this means, regardless of where your surfing was at when you arrive, your skills in the surf are going to improve dramatically during your stay.
The daily routine:
Every evening you sign up to a surf session that suites your ability and the time you’d like to hit the water. If you’re keen you can sign up to the sunrise session and get out in the water before the crowds, and have breakfast when you get back.
For intermediate surfers you have plenty of beach and easy reef and point breaks nearby that provide surf big and powerful enough so you can get long rides along the face, but not too big and shallow to scare you out of catching any waves. These long rides are perfect for learning big carves and turns and will improve your surfing, and build your confidence dramatically.
Advanced surfers will experience the best Bali has to offer. There are plenty of world class reefs and points along the coast where the waves will be almost perfect. The team will take you to spots like Padang Padang, Dreamland, Ulawatu or Balangan where you can catch long, big and hollow waves that will get even the most seasoned surfer stoked. With the tips from the locals you’ll paddle right out into the perfect position, and catch wave after wave.
For total beginners planning a trip to Surf House Canguu you can book the Beginners Surf course. The mellow beach breaks close to the camp like HalfWay, Padma, Kudeta and DoubleSix are the ideal spots to catch your first waves. The waves are not only easy to catch and ideal to perfect your take-of, but also provide long rides where you can get your surfboard balance sorted and start working on turns.
Even more advanced surfers can come to these spots and catch epic long rides, with plenty of open face in front of you, and plenty of time to consciously think about the next turn you’re going to make, and where you are going to make it.
Price for the Learn-to-Surf Package is 79 € for 3 days.

Surf House Canguu has a massive selection of rental boards on offer that include Shortboards that range from 6 ft. to 7 ft. as well as retro fish and Minimals for beginners. The team can get you on the perfect board taking into account the conditions, your skill level, and the type of surfing you are going to be doing. If you’re not bothered transporting your board from home you can obviously bring it along. Any extras you need, or may have forgotten, like wax, boardshorts, surf bikini, tail pad, fins or a leash, are all available at the local surf store.
You have an option of getting surfboard insurance for your rental board, just in case it hits the reef or sand while surfing, or you accidentally drop it on the way to the beach, it doesn’t matter if it’s a small ding, or something more serious. If you happen to loose the board somehow, surfboard insurance won’t cover that and you’ll have to fork out for a replacement.
A delicious breakfast is included for all guest, with the option of upgrading to a Deluxe Breakfast for 5€ per day.
Breakfast runs from 07:00 till 12:00 every day. Coffee and tea are available from 06:00 till 18:00. If you are taking part in the early morning surf session and don’t think you’ll be back by 12 you can ask for breakfast-to-go in the evening.
The standard breakfast consists of a selection of juices or smoothies, coffee & tea, plus a starter and a main.
The deluxe breakfast is more of an all you can eat deal which is perfect when you return from your early morning surf session. It also includes smoothies, coffee & tea.
A great way to make your trip uncomplicated in terms of evening meals is to choose the half board option. Every night after 17:30 you’ll be able to choose a 2-course meal from a varied menu that consists of both local in international food. The experienced chef has daily specials and sometime fires up the BBQ or prepares a big buffet dinner.
If you choose not to take the Half Board option you can find plenty of great restaurants surrounding the camp and even more the closer you get to Kuta. You can get a healthy and delicious local Nasi or Mie Goreng at a picturesque beachside café for as little as 2€.
Once you start heading to the more touristy areas like Seminyak you’ll have a great selection of western restaurants. You’ll find everything from the typical American burger joints to Italian, Japanese and German restaurants that cater to tourists who want to experience the comforts of home.
So that you experience more of what Bali has to offer the team organises weekend day trips with a private driver who can fill you in on plenty of interesting facts, local tips and show you the best sights on the way. For example, if the trip is to Ubud, the driver might make a stop at a Temple, or waterfall on the way that is off the beaten tourist path.
If you want to explore Bali on your own accord you can rent the bus with driver from camp, as long as there is 3 or more of you. You can also use the bus if you just want to go the the supermarket or cash machine.
Otherwise you also have the option of renting a scooter or mountain bike to explore. There’s nothing quite like strapping a board to the side of your scooter and exploring the coast, stopping at any spot you like for a quick surf, then continuing until sunset. If you want to rent a scooter, or the van, you need an international driver’s license.
There are plenty of opportunities to experience Balinese culture. Whether you want to go to one of the many ancient Hindu or Buddhist temples to learn about the origins of the culture, visit the palaces to see how the royalty in Bali live, check out the rice fields or even take trips into the bigger cities to shop, eat & party. Each trip will highlight a different element of Balinese culture. From its origins in the temples, through its development, to what the culture has become today.
For those who like an action-packed trip, Surf House Canguu has got you covered. On top of the 10-surf session per week you have included in your stay you can also go Diving on one of the outer reefs surrounding the island. Kite Boarding or Stand Up Paddleboarding are also available. If you want to get out of the ocean you can also go White-Water-Rafting. If you want to stay out of the water altogether you can go mountain biking, hiking, rock-climbing, zip-lining or even hike up a volcano to watch the sunrise.
