Komune Resort & Beach Club, situated at Keramas on Bali’s east coast, is a new resort for those who love to surf or wish to experience the surfing lifestyle. This hip resort consisting of 33 rooms, that overlooks the world-class surf reef break of Keramas, opened its first stage in late 2012. The second and third stages are set to open in 2014.
45 minutes from Ngurah Rai international Airport in Denpasar via the new Sanur bypass toll road, the resort is only 3 minutes from Bali Safari and Marine Park and a 25 minute drive from Sanur’s shopping district and Bali’s arts & cultural centre, Ubud.
Komune Resort & Beach Club is now offering surf lovers a world first, with the recent launch of a permanent night surfing installation. Each night, guests and visitors can watch the local Bali board riders put on a spectacular performance of surfing the waves. After seeing the display, guests can book a night surf, with only five others sharing the waves. Guests can choose either the night surfing sessions which run from 7pm to midnight each evening, or from 4am to 6am for those early risers, at a cost of $20 per hour.
The resort specialises in finding surf spots to suit individual ability. There is a dedicated tour desk to book boat transfers from Keramas to breaks such as Nusa Lembongan which is great for intermediate surfers, and for more experienced surfers, Tanjung Sari, Hyatt Reef and Sanur Reef.
The resort is part-owned by champion Australian surfer Luke Egan who said “Keramas is the most hi-fi performance wave in Bali so the action in the water is always electric at Komune Bali.”
In February 2014, Komune’s ten Junior Suites will be opened with a launch rate from $140 per night. Late 2014 will see the launch of luxury Beach Villas that will enjoy sweeping ocean views overlooking the Keramas right-hander, enabling guests to view night surfing from their private villa. Each of the twenty-four two and three bedroom villas will have their own private swimming pool, Bose sound system, internet connection, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor showers, BBQ, outdoor lounge, king size beds and a lounge area with surf views.
Komune Bali prides itself on being environmentally and socially conscious, incorporating solar power, LED lighting, water harvesting and purification, cross flow ventilation, sewer and storm water management, river channel and beach management, cleaning and monitoring.
Co-owner Tony Cannon said “If you want a perfect place to chill on family sized pool deck loungers, desert island style hammocks listening to the waves crashing down whilst snacking on fresh and tasty food with vegetables picked from our own garden, Komune is for you”.
