I had a fantastic week here. The staff were brilliant, fun and accommodating. It is a very relaxed atmosphere. I stayed in the dorms, which were spacious and practical, with electric fans and lamps provided for each bunk, and only 4 bunks to a room, so you are not tripping over each other. I had a look in the Villas and Bungalow as well, and these are verging on decadent in their style, layout and comfort. The bathrooms are clean, and the showers are very ‘back to nature’, which is what you want after a day out at sea.
The surf set up is brilliant too. I have been to other camps, in other countries, and have never been happier. You surf a wide range of beaches, depending on the weather, wave conditions, your ability and tide. The surf guides are great fun, and will always get you to the right spot for take offs. They are very encouraging and give plenty of tips. The quiver of boards to choose from at the camp is impressive, and after 3 days found my perfect board (the other days I also used good boards, but it took time for me to get used to surfing without a cumbersome wetsuit, and the water temp can be warmer than the air!)
The food at the camp is great, with breakfast and dinner laid on, which greatly reduces the cost of living, and the massages provided by Sunny, at a very cheap rate compared to others in Bali, is by far the best massage I have every had! There is a free pool table, small library, playing cards and TV to enjoy, and the cost of beer is competitive too.
It costs around 150,000Rp from the airport, and the taxis provided from Rapture camps to get to Kuta and other places of interest are charged at a good competitive rate.
