There are two options for your family to choose from; a double bed with two bunk beds, or a double bed with four bunk beds. Both of these options come with a private bathroom – which is pretty much essential when travelling! Price is per room for 2 adults and 2 children.

Private Ocean View Room: This air-conditioned room has a balcony with views of the ocean and the camp.
Pulau Merah takes its name from the rock islet jutting out in front of the beach (Pulau = island; Merah = red, perhaps referring to the oxidized rock under the vegetation that now covers it). Seclusion is perhaps Pulau Merah’s best asset. As Bali’s surfing spots have largely been inundated by surfers, amateurs and experts seeking less crowded surfing spots now seek out Pulau Merah for its rustic surroundings and its resemblance to the old, pre-tourist Bali. Surf lessons: Learn to surf or brush up on your skills with coaching from one of their qualified instructors. Includes board hire use during lesson. Board hire (without lessons) is also available.
Traditional Deep Tissue Massage: Great for post-surf aches and pains, your body will feel brand new! Ijen Volcano: one of the few volcanoes in the world where you can see blue fire, and walk into the crater. Lost Paradise Beach: Take a trip in a traditional teak fishing boat to discover this beautiful hidden beach. Optional snorkelling and fishing can be arranged. Approx 20 mins each way. Overnight Turtle Sanctuary visit: Visit and assist with turtle conservation at the Sukamade Turtle Sanctuary.
