The first floor is 14 x 14 meters. It is where early in the morning everyone meets to have their breakfast, check the swell forecast, the tide charts and find out which waves will be better in the days conditions. It’s also here where you will drink icy cold Bintangs after surf, have a taste of some of the snacks, remembering the day's waves, and talking about the barrels, while you wait for the famous banquets of the chef, Pai. Also on the first floor is the open-plan kitchen, where you can monitor all the care of the chef and his crew, observing the hygiene and cleanliness used in the preparation of all the meals. The restaurant has a “farm” style table, where you will have most of the meals, and a Japanese style table, where you can have sushi/sashimi meals and where most of the parties are being held.

 

There are also a few different common areas for socialising, reading, playing games, or just relaxing - including one of the most used and sought after areas in the Surfing Village: the hammock area, completely surrounded by potent audio system, where guests controls the music selection, connecting straight to iPods, discman, walkman, laptop, LP, etc…

 

The second floor has 10 x 10 meter open space, for your yoga, stretching, relaxing, etc…. The third floor is TV room. With a spectacular 360 degree view of the Surf Village and the waves surrounding it, it’s where you can relax after lunch, watch a movie or a surf video, all the while keeping one eye on the pumping sets of Pasti and Naga’s. After dinner this is where they have the famous daily slide shows, screening all the photos of the day from their professional photographer. As well as a wide collection of movies and surf videos, they also have satellite TV with channels such as CNN, HBO 1, 2 and 3, Cinemax, Discovery, National Geographic, ESPN, MTV, Fashion TV etc…

Accommodation

Telos Surfing Village comprises of four spacious bungalows, ample and fresh, refrigerated by the natural air conditioner of the sea breeze and the shade of the coconut jungle.

 

Fully designed and built by surfers for surfers. Planned in a way that all the beds have a full view of the barrels of Pasti, Lobang and Nagadens, the lefts of Kiri and the swells that hit Bagas and Mibis. A view which can be appreciated even from the throne, even in your most “tense” moments.

 

Built with local wood and materials, the bungalows are two floors high. On the first floor is the board room, sheltered hang out area, outside deck and two private bedrooms with king-size beds that comfortably house two couples. Equipped with white cotton sheets, special mosquito nets, individual fans and bamboo blinds for extra privacy. The second floor is an open loft with a 360 degree view, housing one king-size bed, with cotton sheets and special mosquito net situated beneath a large ceiling fan. All four bungalows have a private, western-style outside toilet with a flush system and a separate bathroom with running tap water as well as a hot and cold water shower.

 

FOOD

Bearing in mind the privileged location, on the corner of nowhere at the end of the World Avenue, where the closest market is 14 hours away, the package includes 3 daily meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner, always very substantial menus to supply and recharge the energies, much needed for a good day of surfing.

 

With an extensive menu varying between local and western dishes, stretching from pizza to nasi goreng. All prepared by the international chef with the best quality produce and a high hygiene standard.

 

For the munchies, the restaurant also has an a la carte menu, that can be ordered at any time of the day.

 

And for the thirsty, you can’t go past the bar! Icy cold Bintangs, soft drinks and natural juices are available along with a selection of alcoholic beverages to celebrate that memorable surf session! (extra charges apply)

Surf & Other Activities
Having the longest residing surfers in the region as your hosts & surf guides definitely has a few benefits. When they first arrived in 2005, they had no idea what really awaited them. Over the last 8 years they searched and searched, finding waves so amazing that it’s hard to explain. They surfed many different reefs, rocks and beaches, on many different tides, swell angles, winds etc…. Some were epic, some weren’t. But all these years of experimenting gave them a knowledge of the area and it’s intricacies that only time and experience can bring, culminating in the incredible total of 18+ completely different, world class waves. 3 of them are located right on the doorstep of the Surfing Village: Pasti, Lobang and Nagadens. The other 12 waves are less than a 20 minute boat trip away. Only Jauh, Facas and Shhh are a little more than an hour away. And it doesn’t stop there!

 

There are a number of reefs with a lot of potential that they haven’t even had time to explore….
