Our 15 chalets and villas are built with stunning timbers, buffed coconut poles and the richly-coloured quartz volcanic stones of the local hillsides. Marble is used extensively on the floors and in the bathrooms. The grass (alang alang) roofs are insulating and natural.
From small grass huts up to fully self-contained 2 bedroom villas, all accommodation has sea, mountain and bush views. The concept of design is glass fronted with decks on all rooms that take in the commanding views. Each room has its own private bathroom, styled with an open roof.
Our 4-star chef prepares both western and local foods from the menu or banquet style, with a touch of Lombok spice if you want. His specialty is fresh seafood, cooked over the natural BBQ. The drinks waiter serves beers, spirits, cocktails and wines. Genuinely local foods are available also … including grasshopper (in season) and other traditional food, known in Indonesian as makan adat.
On the golden sands of Heaven's Beach, the warung restaurant serves meals, snacks, sates and drinks.
Room service is also available.
There are limited numbers staying at the camp, so you won’t get there to find all the breaks crowded. This means you feel like you own the break and you can’t imagine how good this feels. To ensure you have uncrowded waves during your stay, we now offer the first surfing under lights in Indonesia. This is only for guests of the camp, so you have absolute priority for the waves.
Your accommodation at Ekas Surf Camp overlooks all of the breaks at Inside Ekas. Just paddle, walk at low tide or take the boat at high tide. Check out both Inside and Outside Ekas with our boat … the classic Indo surfing experience.
Inside Ekas is best known as a left and right hand peak (see the Indo Surfing Guide) which breaks in medium and large swells. The right is a high quality wave, particularly on low tide, suitable for advanced surfers. The left winds down the reef at high tide, a softer wave ideal for the less experienced surfer who wants a classic long ride. Both short and long boards are suitable on the left. The ride is longer at Ekas, but the left wave is like the well-known Grupuk peak, which has attracted many surfers from all over the world, particularly Japanese visitors.
Also in front of the property are Lombok’s only beginner surfing waves. The left and right “sand bar” peak is ideal for learning to surf. We provide surfboards and surf lessons. Directly in front of the property, a classic wave winds down the reef on moderate swells making an easy left for long boarders or beginners.
Outside Ekas, a solid left break, is best on high tide in large swells when a very long, heavy wave peels over 400-500 m down the reef and barrels in sections. The square take-off jacks up into a thick lip, over deep reef. Outsides also works when the swell is smaller, particularly around mid tide … a bit peaky at times, but still heaps of fun with some power in the waves.
The nearby “Southern Reefs” are really good in the wet season, or early mornings before the wind comes up in the dry. These reefs face straight into the swell and so they break nearly all the time. Hollow left and right peaks break in small swells. In large swells, one newly discovered hollow right winds over 800 m down the reef on the open coast.
Desert Point is a short trip from Ekas Bay. Known as one of the best waves in the world on its day. It will also be one of the longest lefts you'll ride, barrels most of the way with the end section growing bigger the further you go!
Errant has consistently delivered an excellent time for me & my family. Thanks again for another great trip!
