The Inside Mail On Como Uma Canggu, Bali

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.


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).

For surfers especially, travel is often in the blood. Most of us aren’t blessed with tropical, uncrowded waves on our doorstep and so we dream of a time and a place where this can become the ‘new normal’, if only for a week or so. But for our Tropicsurf guides who call these palm fringed beaches and turquoise line ups home, we can’t help but wonder what their surf travel dreams look like. When the relentless travel between dreamlands becomes too much of a good thing, where do they go to recharge? One of our most frequent island hoppers, Ryley Haskell give us an insight…
