The Inside Mail On Como Uma Canggu, Bali

by Tropicsurf Blog November 29, 2018

ROSS (Director of TS) & DI PHILLIPS

The hot tip is to save your pennies and book one of the top-storey penthouses. They are stylish, spacious and the surf breaks views along the coast are magnificent. 

Book a guided surf trip with Tropicsurf and explore the nooks and crannies to the north. Not many people are in the know here. There are some b-grade reef breaks that can be fun, with the upside of being extremely uncrowded.

If you can bear to part from the mouth- watering Como Shambhala menu for a night, head down to Seminyak to Mama-San or Sarong for some authentic Asian treats. But book your table days, or even weeks, in advance. It’s very popular because it’s good.

The waves out front are ideal for learning to surf. Book a local photographer to shoot your triumphs and then view the action with cocktail in hand around our surf shack and bar at happy hour.

 JEN EDWARDS, SALES MANAGER AT TROPICSURF

Go for a surf really early in the morning (before 6am) as there is hardly anyone out - and it's beautiful at that time! Not too hot, the waves are glassy and you work up a nice appetite for the beautiful breakfast (the cuisine at the restaurant is superb).

I’m Mike, Tropicsurf’s program manager stationed at our newest property, One&Only Mandarina. Perched amongst an unspoiled pocket of Nayarit’s tropical coastline, Mandarina leaves you feeling as though you’ve entered another world, despite being located just a stones-throw from Punta Mita. I reside at Mandarina with my fiancé Katia who hails from Mexico and together, we’re having the time of our lives as we explore this picturesque pocket of the world and everything it has to offer together.

Hawaii - What the Ancients Knew
Hawaii - What the Ancients Knew

September 16, 2020

The Hawaiian Islands are the most isolated landmasses on the planet. You feel the immensity of that isolation most clearly while bobbing in the ocean there. The cobalt Pacific’s deep-sea currents and swells detonate over Hawaii’s shallow reefs, creating explosive displays of barreling raw nature that’s nothing short of breathtaking.
