We (father with 2 kids, 8 & 5 y.o.) enrolled for the paintingclass because we like arts&crafts. It was a relaxed start for our holiday after the flight and jetlag keeping us from getting up early. The setting is wonderful in the rice fields, with friendly, helpful staff. The painting class was done with 1 local artist with rather limited English but that was no problem. He knew his trade and showed how to use the different techniques. Sometimes he was maybe making the painting himself but at least the result was beautiful - definitely more beautiful than if i would have made it completely. For our 8 y.o. is was a great experience, he was amused from start to finish. For the 5 y.o. it was more difficult to stay amused, she got bored after 1.5 hour. All in all a great experience!

Santai Surf School is the place to be for beginners! My husband and I have never surfed in our lives before and we could stand stand on the board after a few tries! The instructors were great, encouraging and safety-conscious. Would definitely love to come back for more lessons for our future trips to Bali :)

Very efficient surf lesson. I can do basic surf with the knowledge they provided. Love to learn again. Photos are too costly. Please take pictures with your camera. Host is very cool and response.

Sono was my instructor. He was very funny and friendly. It's my first time surfing and I was able to stand on the board thanks to him! Also Oded, the photographer, was very funny and friendly. I had a lot of fun surfing because of them.

This was my second experience with Santai in the last three years. I learned with them again because of my great experience the first time, and I was not disappointed. The lesson is thorough but efficient and allows maximum time in the water. Their location at Double Six beach is ideal for beginning surfers with a nice break over shallow sandy bottom. I joined a group class but ended up having one-on-one help on the day I went. All the teachers are super friendly and encouraging. Keep in mind that the session is NOT 11 hours as listed but will be a 2-3 hour session offered at different times throughout their operating hours from 7am-6pm.
