Ekas Bay, a remote and beautiful bay in South East Lombok, appeals to all levels of surfers. The two surf spots, Ekas Inside and Ekas Outside, offer great surfing in stunning scenery with both safe and difficult waves.
Ekas Breaks hotel is ideally located only 1 km from Ekas Bay, where the two surf breaks are reached easily with our boatman in 10 minutes.
Thanks to its particular location and set-up, Ekas Bay generally has swell all year round. The peak season is from April until early November, when classic 6-12ft (2-4m) longer period swells arrive from a SSW-WSW direction, which continue to arrive at 3-6ft (1-2m) during the wet season.
Outside Ekas is a long, hollow wall that breaks left under a cliff face. This wave is for the more experienced surfer as there is a lot of water moving and the wave is quite powerful. Best on mid to high tides and a south east wind.
Inside Ekas is the fun and playful little brother. It’s suitable for all abilities, breaking long and perfect far inside the bay. The wave breaks as a peak in both right and left. 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.
Depending on the tide, swell, wind and your desire to surf something different, there are other potential waves in the nearby «Southern Reefs» such as Sereweh. These are 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.
The hotel offers 12 traditional newly built Lombok-style bungalows made completely from wood and covered with an alang-alang (thatched) roof.
All accommodation comes with air-conditioning and a private bathroom with hot water. The bungalows are set in our beautiful garden with a pool view, just a few steps away from your morning swim.
All bungalows include free Wi-Fi, daily housekeeping, hot water, double bed 180 × 200 cm, balcony, ensuite bathroom, air-conditioning and towels.
The hotel restaurant offers a variety of Western and local Indonesian dishes, all sourced locally. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the spacious restaurant made from local bamboo and overlooking the resort. And if you just want to wind down, you can relax in the lounge, order a drink at the bar, or enjoy a snack by the pool area.
Island tours can be arranged at eth front desk- however the beach club area is likely where you’ll hang out mostly. The pool area, grass movie area, bar and beach is where its all at!
