where to stay in bali in Dec/Jan?

Any advice will be appreciated...coming to Bali with hope of great surf.  Where to stay in the wet season, any recommendations of surf guides or hotels. We are coming from California. Thanks

Hello, it depands what you looking for. Best known is Kuta with planty of accomodation, but it also very touristic. Good thing about Kuta is that you are in the middle and it easy to get to the surf spots, but especially around christmas it can be crowed..
it s easy to get place to stay, it really depands what you prefer. For example Uluwatu is a nice place..



RE: where to stay in bali in Dec/Jan?


you can go to Uluwatu, Dream land or canggu. Anyway those places are easy to reach where ever you stay (south bali), you can rent a motorbike there. Seminyak or legian is quiter than Kuta and has many nice accomodations. Double six beach also has nice waves, not as crowded and busy as Kuta beach =)
Good luck and have fun!

Don't stay in Kuta very long. Head to Ulawatu, Padang, Padang area. The waves are sooo much nicer there, less crowded and there are some cheap nice places to stay. I can't remember the exact name of the place I stayed at. I think it was just Padang Padang Acomadation. Walking distance to the beach. If you do stay in Kuta for a few days, stay at the Komalah Indah 2. It was really cheap, nice and within walking distance from the beach.

         Arriving in wet season means any breaks on the Western side (Ulu's through Kuta to Medewi) are gonna be onshore when the tradies come up each day. You'd be better off trying the Eastern side (Nusa Dua, Sanur, Sri Lanka etc). There are plenty of good spots to stay, from 5 star to losman style depending on who you're travelling with and how close to the beach you want to stay.
  Personally, I head to Kuta first then get a swell chart from a local surf shop and make plans from there. You could do worse than get yourself a copy of 'Indo surf and Lingo' by Peter Neely. That's got evrything you need to know and has a brilliant introduction to the language that'll save you a few thousand Rupiah as well.
  Best of Luck.
