Want that surf break all to yourself? Then set sail upon the Four Seasons Explorer to find a host of secluded waves.
Take your surfing holiday to the next level – visit private breaks, go on surfing safaris and stay in a VIP villa designed just for surfers
Niyama Private Islands
You don’t need to go far to find surfable waves at Niyama – they break straight onto the island. You’ll be treated to five surfable waves every five minutes and no crowds. Want to do more? Then go on a mini surf safari and take a speedboat to two other breaks within a 10-minute ride.
The resort features customised villas designed for surfers. They each come with a surfboard rack, dedicated TV channels playing live surf reports and a fridge overflowing with gourmet treats that are restocked by your butler. Finish the day with rum cocktail while listening to reggae tunes and watching the sun go down at the Surf Shack.
COMO Uma Canggu
Step off your lounger at COMO Uma Canggu on Echo Beach and walk straight into the waves. Beginners can start with a lesson in the resort’s lagoon, while advanced surfers can join them on a surfari to some of the country’s most famous breaks. Spend the day at the black sand beach of Pererenan, take your longboard to Batu-Baolong or head to the rocky cove that is Medewi. If you are looking for some tips head to Padang Padang, which draws some of the world’s best surfers. Then if you book a COMO Penthouse, you can celebrate your day in the waves by enjoying a sundowner in your rooftop pool.
No surprise that the No#1 hotel in the world comes with its own private surf break. It’s a challenging one admittedly, but if you’re a beginner, don’t panic, you’ll find plenty of waves around Nihi Sumba where you can brush up on your technique. And if those legs are starting to ache, you can always visit the spa.
Six Senses Fiji
When it comes to a surfing holiday a trip to Malolo in Fiji is hard to beat. Not only is it the home of Cloudbreak, Kelly Slater’s favourite wave, but it is also the setting for the new eco-chic boutique hotel Six Senses Fiji. When you see the crystal clear water, white sand beaches and private bures, we understand if you feel the need to pinch yourself.
Four Seasons Explorer
Want that surf break all to yourself? Then set sail upon the Four Seasons Explorer. This floating hotel will take you around the Baa Atoll where you will find a host of secluded waves. If someone, shock horror, dare to share the same strip of beach with you, you can always haul anchor and set sail for the next destination. When you are not on your board, you can enjoy gourmet dishes in the dining room, relaxing on the sun deck or enjoying a barbecue on a private beach.
