Make Your Surfing Easy at COMO Canggu
On the south coast of Bali is where you will find COMO Uma Canggu. Here lies a lesser known surf scene, one without the Kuta crowds, where rolling waves break in alluring curls and the mood is carefree. True to the COMO approach towards design, the hotel – which boasts endless Indian Ocean views is demonstrative of modern Asian architecture: low-lying, sleek and contemporary.
Sunsets over the Indian Ocean are always special; a swift change of deep blues through to neon orange and sparkling gold. Here at COMO Uma Canggu, there’s always ways to make this even more perfect. Enjoy the sunset from the best vantage point, the surf. Follow it with a beachside drink while listening to live music. Cap off your night with a private dinner on the balcony of your penthouse suite. In Bali there’s always a way to increase the magic.
It’s no secret that Bali boasts the warmth of the tropics - it’s part of the allure. There’s nothing quite like an early morning swim to awaken the mind and body; or just reading a book poolside, knowing that you can sneak off for a quick dip to refresh the senses before getting stuck into the next chapter. The Poolside Villas at COMO Uma Canggu offer this opportunity straight off the deck.
COMO Shambhala Retreat offers holistic and personal treatments that perfectly blend ancient wisdom and rituals with modern practices and science. The fitness centre is open 24/7, and daily yoga and pilates offer the optimum way to prepare, or wind down, from your surf session. A magical variety of body and beauty treatments that utilise carefully selected products can rejuvenate any sun-dried surfer.
Tropicsurf Surf Shack
The Tropicsurf shack is beachfront and has the best vantage point of the waves. Guests can often be found hanging out here watching the waves, chatting surf and diving into the selection of boards and carefully curated garments. It’s a gathering place as much as it is a classroom, and we love it that way. Enjoy a beer as the sun sets, or send the grommets down to watch some surf movies.
Canggu is a land of many contrasts. There is the peaceful, slow moving vibes of the natural environment, and often, the energetic flow of Hindu and contemporary dances. The beachside pool encapsulates this in an attractive and somewhat magnetic environment. Watch and listen to the Indian Ocean roll to shore out front while the DJ sets the mood; it’s a place to be entertained and social, or escape and chill.
Waves at COMO Uma Canggu
Tropicsurf is partnered with COMO Uma Canggu to manage a custom designed state-of-the-art Tropicsurf Surf Centre on property. Year-round guiding and coaching services are on offer. Within walking distance from the resort, we have access to several spots for all levels of surfers. If the surf is small, there are spots further up the coast that pick up more swell only a drive away.
Bali Surf Exploration
For those looking to explore, this is the perfect destination as we are able to access multiple surf breaks within a 30-minute car ride. We can plan a full day excursion to famous, and unknown, breaks on either of Bali's coastlines. All we need to know is what your prefer; lefts, rights, barrels or walls? Tropicsurf's highly renowned Travel Designers can apply their insider-knowledge to customise your package.
Bali has long been a surfers paradise, and for good reason. This little island has fantastic exposure to all the swells that the Indian Ocean produces due to its varied and winding coastline; this results in a myriad selection of walls, barrels, beach breaks and reef breaks. It’s this variety that gives Tropicsurf guests the chance to progress along a series of breaks, or test themselves at the top.
Bali is one of a few surfing ‘magnets’ around the world. It draws in some of the best surfers in the world to sample the fluid delights that this wonderful coastline is renowned for. During prime surf season (March - October), inspiration can be found from just watching the levels of surfing performance being pushed every day around the island. A trip to the world-famous Bukit peninsula is a spectacle for surfers and non-surfers a like.
Expert Tropicsurf Guidance
From COMO Uma Canggu you have access to many different waves, some easy and friendly, others more powerful and challenging. This is where your experienced, industry leading Tropicsurf coach becomes invaluable. Their ability to read and analyse the ocean, the day’s conditions and the changing line-up results in you surfing when and where the waves are best.
Resort at COMO Uma Canggu
Absolute beachfront, overlooking the surf break of Old Mans on Echo Beach. While staying here, beginners can mix up surf tuition, yoga and spa time, with hours on a sunlounger at the new COMO Beach Club. Spectacular modern Asian-and-Italian-inflected interiors reflect a collaboration between Japanese-born designer Koichiro Ikebuchi and Miland-based designer Paola Navone. Renowned landscape architect Trevor Hillier has designed the resort's sweeping lawns and shrubbery.

Day Trip to Ubud
It’s just a 60-minute drive to the cultural heart of Bali, Ubud, located in the central lush tropical mountains. Ubud is a photogenic paradise that offers guests the chance to be immersed in Balinese culture, spirituality and art. The rice terraces are just as awe-inspiring as the colourful temples; it’s a great way to spend a morning before heading back for an afternoon surf at the beaches of Canggu.
A Perfect Balinese Balance
With authentic Balinese culture and service, modern luxury and convenience, COMO Uma Canggu is truly your nexus point for your ideal Balinese experience. In the restaurants they combine healthy and delicious cuisine with ancient cultural recipes. The COMO Shambhala Spa compliments any day perfectly; the tranquil pool is the only way to relax after a mornings adventure to the nearby temples.
COMO Food Culture
Bali is a culinary land of variety, and the COMO menus are always a culmination of passion and craftsmanship. The freshest fruits, vegetables and other produce are lovingly curated into a breakfast buffet and a la carte menu that results in an easy two-hour sitting enjoying the flavours, fresh juices and coffee to the view of the Indian Ocean. There is nothing better after an early morning surf. Nothing.
Bali has long been an escape for those wanting to break away from the usual routine back home. The warm tropics, new adventures and cultural marvels of this country build an immersive feeling that brings people together. Private, beachfront dining options after a day’s exploring, and embarking on a new surfing career, are the perfect way to wind down into the Indian Ocean sunset.

The spacious living room offers a light-filled environment to relax and cool down after your mid-morning surf out front at Old Man’s. Recover by soaking your bones in one of the two large freestanding bathtubs.
Private Balinese Escape
Canggu is perfect for those who want to be able to sample the buzzing energy of the local town, while also being able to escape to their own Balinese serenity. The 12 COMO Penthouses offer this in unparalleled luxury; featuring a private balcony pool, butler services and the best view of the surf.

Dine In Comfort
After a busy day in Bali, sometimes, a meal in the comfort of your own space is just what you need. The COMO cuisine has been designed to maximise the flavours of the freshest ingredients to nourish and sustain even the hardiest of surfers. Put this together with the COMO in-room service and you’ve got a winner; evenings don’t get much better than this.
Home Away From Home

A ground floor location opens up onto the COMO Uma Canggu lagoon, allowing you to step straight in the water from your own residence. Enough space for everyone to play, or relax; let the floor to ceiling glass doors open up, and allow the fragrant Indian Ocean breeze to flow through.

Family surfing holiday
We booked the trip through Tropicsurf who run the surf programme at Como Canggu and had the best time. The resort is only recently open but already the team have settled in really well and running the place very efficiently. Tropicsurf runs a fantastic surf programme which had something for everyone.Griff109 - TripAdvisor

Wanted to drop you some positive feedback on the team @ Como Canggu, Eika & Chucho.
I'd consider myself an intermediate surfer but hadn't been in the water for a while, so had a couple of 1:1/2:1 sessions with Chucho.
He was an excellent instructor, very knowledgeable about the local breaks and able to match my ability to the the right spot. His calm and clear style helped grow my confidence, whilst learning some new/better tips for all aspects of surfing.
A very flexible, welcoming, and enthusiastic team, they brought me from the low of my initial despair at my confidence on the waves, to a high of perfecting postitioning and on wave manoeuvres. Allowing me to leave Bali hungry for the next surf and open to more instruction throughout the next few stages.
Thank you for the incredible experience.Hugo, via email
I had a fantastic time surfing in Bali with Chucho and Eka! It was so much fun that I want to surf with Chucho again in Cabo at the One and Only Palmilla.Carina, via email

We had an amazing time in Bali at the Como with Tropicsurf!!
The hotel was wonderful and we had the most incredible experience with Shane and Tereza. They were so knowledgeable about the basics of surfing for Mariah getting out there for the first time. Shane also had great tips for me and gave me all of the insider details for the local waves when he and I went out together. Truly would not have been as memorable of a trip without our time with Shane, Tereza, and Tropicsurf. Thank you for all of your assistance in us booking our trip and making the whole process so seamless and stress-free! I am so glad that I found Tropicsurf through a job posting and us applying for open positions. We hope to continue to have amazing experiences with Tropicsurf whether on another tropic vacation or on the other side as instructors.Buck, via email.
