Kuta Goes Off - Have just got back from 8 days in kuta Lombok.What an amazing place.A hidden Paradise!!!There are 3 Aussies, one is a local who have just started a Daily Surf Charter business.They have an amazing 9 Metre Yelow baot called "CHILLI" and do daily charters out of Kuta!!Stayed at "Surfers Inn", run by a Japanese guy, Henry and his Brazillian wife, Chris.Fantastic, friendly place full of people from all over the world.If you not been to Lombok, my advise would be get moving, as its really an untouched paradise.

To anonymous - Getting from Kuta to Ekas - the following information is what we provide guests coming to stay at Heaven on the Planet a resort in South East Lombok, Ekas Bay.Transport can be chartered from Kuta to the village of Awang. It will take about half an hour to three quarters of an hour to get from Kuta to Awang. You will know what the going rate would be for travel of that distance – probably around 50,000 Rp (perhaps more)?Then, when you arrive in Awang charter a boat from there to go across the Bay to Heaven on the Planet. We have a friend in the village of Awang “Using” a friendly hunchbacked guy who speaks very good English (and perhaps a little bit of French). Using will be able to organise a boat for you. We have an aquarium in Awang and there are many people in the village who know us. Using or Bhakti are people who have worked for us in the past on the aquarium project so either they can help you or any of the fishermen in the village will be happy to charter their boat to you. We usually pay them around 50,000 – 60,000 Rp for the trip across the Bay. The boat driver may try to tell you he cannot land at Heaven on the Planet. This is merely a ploy used to try and keep you in Kuta so they have the opportunity for repeat business. It is very easy to land at our property, there is a choice of two beaches to land at – the small beach directly under our property is the easier one to land at on high tide.Alternatively, you may choose to telephone our manager/driver who can come and get you in our four wheel drive vehicle. Naim lives in Mataram and sometimes collects people from Kuta and drives around to Heaven on the Planet. His telephone number is +62(0) 8123705393. This option is a lot simpler but will cost you a little more @ 200,000 Rp (for one person) the price list for all transport is advertised on our website www.heavenontheplanet.co.nz.
Getting around - Is it possible to get to Kuta direct from Lembar? Also how easy it to get to Ekas from Kuta? Any info would be much appreciated.
airguling - went to kuta in dry season to windy maybe try and surf early mornings
Advise!!! - Hey, I plan to go to Bali from mid January to the end of March can anyone recommend somewhere to stay. Also from what I have been told Lombok is the best place to go at this time of year, is that right??
worth going on wet season - go to bali and surf the east side. swells are consisten enough for a trip. i surfed bali from late november till mid jan and only skiped two days becaus of the non stop rain. got nusa dua once at 8-12' scary shit, but mostly 4-6.
Worth going 4 surf?? - Hi All, I am planning on surfing bali/lombock in end of october and the month of november. Will I get waves every day??, is it worth going? I know the site says that it is off season. Does anyone know the story who has been there? Please let me know as I am planning.. Peace . One love!
bungalow at mawi - There is actually a bungalow that you can rent at one of the jaga jaga's property.. the thin one.. good luck
where to go - wheres the best place to stay and surf near kuta is there place to stay at mawi or where can I get awave with out to much travel and crowds
good spots for novices? - does anybody know of a nice beach break for a novice longboarder to check out in April? Lombok and also Bali (I'd love to get away from the crowds of Kuta on Bali)...thanks!Also, any women surfers out there with stories of traveling solo on both islands?
