I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Padang Padang surf camp.
52 year old, solo female traveler here with some surf experience from many years ago (a bit of background info) Prior to arrival, I was a little apprehensive being a bit older and definitely not as fit as I used to be. I’m happy to say, everything about the camp was fantastic, the food was amazing, a nice balance of healthy, abundant and super tasty (Poke bowls, smashed avocado, fruit salad with granola and yoghurt, smoothies bowls, tuna steak and veg options).
My room (I booked the budget room downstairs with fan) was very comfortable, nice aesthetics and clean. The grounds of the surf camp are well maintained, leafy and very peaceful with plenty of space to be alone or socialize. The other guests were fantastic and a sense of camaraderie was felt amongst the group (everyone encouraging each other in the surf, no matter their abilities).This is not a party camp, rather a place to really focus on yourself and surfing. My surf coach Ritchie, was really encouraging and pushed me to progress without pushing me beyond my capabilities. All the staff I met at the camp, whether surf coaches, managers, kitchen staff, housekeeping were wonderful. I really have no complaints and was already looking into returning before I’d even left the camp.
I highly recommend Padang Padang surf camp

“Superb location, service, flexibility and friendliness. In addition to surfing, group events and activities were arranged by the hosts. Overall, I can highly recommend Padang Padang Surf Camp as an individual or whether traveling in a group..”

I stayed 10 days at the surf camp. It is the perfect all-round package if you want to surf a lot and chill in an amazing camp. I have also definitely made progress in my surfing skills during the time. No matter which surf teacher: you always feel in good hands, they motivate you and you feel safe and get lots of tips. The size of the groups are just perfect, they took us to different surf spots in the area and all guides did an amazing job. In addition, you always get delicious and very fresh food with various options. Overall, I felt very comfortable and would come back anytime.

“Dear Padang Padang SurfCamp,
we stayed with your for a week in October to learn Surfing for the very first time. We absolutely loved our stay with you so much. The location, accommodation, breakfast (Banana Pancakes and Smoothie Bowls in particular) & Lunch, Pool & Work out area, hammocks, organised evening activities, massages and staff members were just absolutely awesome. We did not miss anything and also loved our surf classes :-). We would absolutely come back if we are in Bali again.
Thank you for everything.”

“I’ve never been to such a friendly retreat on all my travels, from reception staff, kitchen staff, cleaners, security, drivers and all the surf coaches. I felt totally at ease and this was clear to see that this was the camps philosophy and part of a lovely constitution, and was organically embraced by other guests from all over the world.
Simply putting it, I have never seen so many chilled individuals always smiling.
Beautiful set up. I will be back!”

“Had the best time. Had to book a second trip with these guys straight away. Feels like a second home and my surfing improved so much. Room is perfect, food is amazing!”

“Had the pleasure of staying here in July 2022 and what a great time it was.
I had stayed previously about 5 years ago and the improvements this time have taken the camp to new levels. Travelling with a mate, coming from Melbourne after 2 years of no travel the ease at which they made 2 weeks of surfing was seamless, from airport pickup to airport drop off and every surf inbetween was hasssle free, fun and pretty much at the right spot at the right time. Being advanced surfer’s was a bit worrying that we may of been hitting the softer spots but this was not the case and when we did get matched up with others it was great to share the stoke with new crew. The guides have changed since my 1st trip but as always the new ones excelled at getting us pleanty of waves and having fun in the lineup. Food at the camp is great, the rooms are clean and modern, gardens are kept to a high level and the camp staff are always happy to help you with anything.
From beginners to advanced surfers these guys and girls will make a stay in Bali a hassle free trip so you can switch into holiday mode as soon as you get off the plane.”

“Amazing experience all around: accommodation, food, teachers, staff (especial shoutout to Widya!). We went to the best beaches for beginners and managed to improve our skills, even during rain season, it was great! Will surely come back next year. Thank you!”

“Stayed at Padang Padang Surf Camp Bali for 1 week in late July 2022.
I should have stayed 2 weeks! Had such an amazing time. I honestly could not fault the stay. The surf instructors and people that help run the place are all fantastic. The food was always spot on. What an amazing part of Bali!!
I was in the learn to surf category when I got there, with very little experience in the surf. Our instructor, Evan, looked after us extremely well and made us feel comfortable in all situations. We learnt so much in our time there and would not change a thing. We also were lucky to have been able to share the experience with a great bunch of guests during the time we spent there.
I get the feeling that this place attracts customers who are looking to focus on surfing, or at least, a more relaxed and appreciative approach to Bali life. With its limited capacity, it seems to have great ethos and is run to ensure that guests are able to find the experience they are after without much disruption to others staying at the camp. Lastly, a final shout out to all the guides / instructors there. A beautiful bunch and I cant wait to be back!! Thank you!!”
