Blue Surf Sanctuary
The four bungalows are built high off the ground. The balconies look into a dense garden area that frequently attracts birds and other critters. As the bungalows are quite close to the beach, ocean breezes tend to make their way up through the property. This helps to keep the area cool and pleasant, although each accommodation is stocked with an air conditioning unit and ceiling fan as well.
Each of the bungalows are built from natural materials and furnished with style—Indian and Balinese antiques hang from walls beneath an arched wooden ceiling. There are tile floors and large windows that let in a good amount of light. Although the bungalows have different configurations of beds, all can sleep up to four people. The private bathrooms feature stone sinks, organic soaps, and a hot water rain shower. What's more, guests will enjoy knowing that their belongings are safe while they're out—there's a digital safe in each of the bungalows that is large enough to fit cameras and laptops.
There is a small square pool that is surrounded by large leafy plants and impressive stone statues. A handful of shaded lounge chairs are set nearby, providing guests with a nice place to relax in the afternoon or early evening. The other communal area is the rancho, which houses a kitchen, computer and cable TV. Guests will enjoy meeting here to cook food and swap stories of their daily adventures.
Some of these adventures may come from the daily lessons that are taught by the hotel’s own surf school. This school, which is sponsored by Billabong, is both for beginners and advanced surfers alike. There are two sessions every day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The student to teacher ratio is never more than 3 to 1, with instruction covering a broad number of topics. These include ocean and environmental awareness, surfing technique and etiquette, stretching, and safety. All of the instructors are extremely helpful and are CPR certified.
