#4 of 102 Speciality lodging in Kuta
Our six bungalows are inspired by local architecture featuring Western standards. All bungalows have the traditional Alang-Alang roof, which is waterproof and a good insulation against the heat of the midday sun. The outside look is kept local with wood paneling and a big wooden terrace to enjoy the magical light during sunset or relax in the shadow during the afternoon.

Due to the Corona crises I unfortunately stayed only two days at the camp, but in this two days I had the best surfing day of my life! I had the best theory lessons EVER and an amazing surf session afterwards. The location is so beautiful, the whole team is super nice and all processes are uncomplicated. I ABSOLUTELY will come back, highly recommended!

This is now my second time at the Drop In and I can highly recommend it to anyone that wants to learn or improve his surfing. I did both here. Not only the surf sessions (most time twice a day) also the theory lessons and most of all the photo reviews helped me a lot in understanding and improving my surfing. The coaches are awesome and explain everything I wanted to know, more than once =). There English is excellent. One of my camp mates once said “these are actually the first surf coaches that let you get more waves then they surf by themselves.” There all about giving you as much waves as you can. And their knowledge in reading the waves is impressive. The accommodation as well is lovley, just look at the pictures, its great to chill here after the surf. And the staff takes care of you(loved the breakfast). Make sure to try the Banana bread. This Camp is not for you if: You don’t like dogs. You plan on doing a lot of activities after surfing. Because after two sessions a day, you’re done =)

I spent a week at Drop In as a total beginner and it was great! The camp and the course are set up with a lot of attention to detail. The dorms are cozy and clean, the food is very good and the communal chill out area around the pool is so comfy that napping people can be found anywhere. The surf sessions are accompanied by very detailed theory lessons and the timing depends on the waves, so we had a lot of (hard but worth it) early morning sessions. As a beginner, I appreciated the inclusion of theory on surf knowledge beyond the how-to-get-up and the practice of safety maneuvers. All coaches that I had contact with were absolutely great and masters of their sport. In the water, they made sure to always look after everyone (around two students per coach) and to give easy-to-implement instructions. Owner Solli and the team around the lodge are also very sweet and helped with everything from white-water-fears to doctor recommendation. A lot of other surfers in my week there were very experienced and they enjoyed the camp just as much as I did (there are two groups based on skill) and everyone was very supportive of everyone else - even of me surf noob. I had a great time and would recommend the camp to anyone - book two weeks rather than one, you’ll want to stay and it will be fully booked! Other tips: don’t arrive straight from your home country, Jetlag kills your vibe for the first two days of surfing. Rent the scooter they offer; Kuta is 10 mins away and there is no food at the camp in the evening. Also, the wifi sucks so get an Indonesian Data SIM card for cheap in town. For beginners, bring the following: long arm/leg rash guard, zinc sun block, reef boots and a truly waterproof bag. Oh and all the first aid things you could possibly need for cuts and against ear infections.

It’s difficult to write a review of drop in as it’s hard to describe the emotions it gave me. I was travelling alone and never surfed before. This place made me feel at home from day 1. Great team of people that run the place with passion, committment and professionalism. The surf school is great: two sessions of surfing a day with 3 surf coaches for 6 people. Photo review every other day. Theory sessions and practice on land before jumping in the ocean. The complex itself is in a very quite place in south lombok. From there you can drive 10 mins to get to a small village (Kuta) where you have restaurants and shops. If you are a surf addict or if you have never tried before but want to, guys come here!

There are some places that you find through google searches and there are some that you hear about from friends. When a friend of mine told me while I was in Indonesia I had to go to Kuta (Lombok) and had to stay at Drop In, it grabbed my attention. My friend had stayed there three days, and claimed it was the best surf hostel she had ever stayed at. The next day I was booking flights from Bali to Lombok. Like many people I had originally planned to stay for a week and look to find a surf guide to show me the local surf spots. Within two days I had joined the camp's surf course and had extend my stay for another two weeks. If you are a beginner surfer or a surfer looking to improve their technique I can’t recommend enough the instructors and the courses that are run by the team at Drop In. Doyo, Johnson and Rin are all amazing teachers and people, each with their own style. The mix between theory, in-water coaching and in-depth photo reviews is the best I’ve experienced. Their ability to breakdown specific areas to focus your attention and give you helpful advice and techniques to improve made my surfing ability increase massively. Even if I may not always look as amazing on the wave as I feel, I know what I need to improve and always remember the best surfer out on the water is the one having the most fun. I did the basic surf camp but am going to try and time my next trip for when they are doing one of their specialised camps. If you’re not surfing, the camp and surrounding area is great to relax and explore. The locals say Lombok is like Bali 20 years ago. Think crowd less beaches, though not always crowd less surf breaks, and the chance to discover more off the beaten track. I would recommend hiring a scooter so you can ride out to Seger beach or one of the many other outlooks for sunset. We would head into Kuta for dinner most nights, unless we had a camp dinner or the boys organised a lobster night. Kuta is a town that has quickly grown in the last two years, and has just about everything you need but still has a small town feel. Gerupuk village, a local fishing village, is about 15 mins drive from the camp and is where we often caught a boat to the local surf spots. There is a good local place for Nasi Campur and a cute bakery that does the best oat biscuits and chocolate brownies. On non-surfing days, Ing and Solli were great at recommending activities. We went snorkelling at the secret Gillis, adventured with the scooter to the many beautiful beaches and then organised a couple of days to hike to the crater of Mt Rinjani. The team at Drop In and the other guests at the camp truely made me feel at home. You can tell that they think about the small details, like providing repellent and a sarong for the beach. I can’t thank everyone enough for making my time in Lombok so incredible.
