Surf Haven Bali
Travel Blogs from Seminyak
Bali Bali Bali, oh where to begin...Well we arrived at the airport to utter madness and noise from taxi drivers trying to get custom! After many taxi drivers had offered us their services, we finally got a driver who said it would cost us 200,000RP (£10) to get to our hotel..We thought we was getting a good deal until we arrived at the hotel …
Today we were moving from Kuta to Seminyak. Seminyak is in the outskirts of Kuta so it wasn't a long drive. Before leaving we went down to Kuta Beach for one last time. It was a lovely morning so we got some great photos. When checking out of our hotel we got them to flag us down a taxi. We were very happy after being dropped off at our new hotel. The place was lush, the ...
... on the edge of the cliff which looks over the ocean and next to that is the open air dining area where everyone sits together to eat breakfast and dinner. There is only about 6 or 7 rooms or suites here so not very many people. I will be able to eat at night which will be fantastic!!! The area was lit up with candles and I enjoyed dinner with the other guests which was the most delicious 3 course meal. Everyone was friendly ...
After our trip out with the Mantas we headed our way to Seminyak, the more affluent suburb of the australian version of Ibiza, Kuta. We used this urban location as our base to head to the volcano, it seemed a bit silly as it was over 2 hours drive from here but this is where the tour company made their pick ups from. Another reason for heading to Seminyak was because by chance a week or so before we had caught wind of Dj ...
... looks like California, with the ritzy resorts, restaurants and clothing shops. The wide yellow sand beach goes on forever, and the waves are massive if you're skilled enough to surf them.

TravelPod Member ReviewsSurf Haven Bali Seminyak
This hotel was set in a quiet area surrounded by rice fields, cows and quiet little streets.
Premier Surf Camp was very close to Canggu & Echo beach but unfortunately due to high tides we were unable to surf on any of our 3 days :(
This worked out quite well as Aaron had picked up a bad tummy bug and wouldn't of been able to surf anyway.
We originally booked a bungalow but moved to a deluxe as the bungalow shower didn't work and had no tv. Aaron also said due to being ill he didn't fancy staring at a cracked wall in bed.
The staff there were very polite, tasty breakfast and we also made a few friends with other guests that were staying at the resort.
We hired a scooter for 2 of the days to take us from place to place as it was too hot and far for walking to places such as the temple, bars, restaurants, massage and yoga resort- All of which we done.
We would stay again :)
