The Chillhouse is an incredible place with so much to offer and the staff are so friendly that they immediately make you feel at home. I would thoroughly recommend staying there. The surf lessons were carried out on a 2 surfers to 1 instructor basis and were very well run with the instructors incredibly helpful to the point where you really notice an improvement in your surfing over the 5 day 'surf and yoga' package with video feedback and advice/recommendations for making improvements on a daily basis. The communal meals mean that you quickly get to meet and catch with fellow lodgers and chat about the days activities over breakfast and dinner. Canggu is a sleepy village that has just the right amount of restaurants, bars and cafes without feeling over developed the prefect balance. I can't wait to go back soon! - TripAdvisor review 2014

Eight years of experience are the basis for this year’s offers, generations of Austrian hospitality and the genuine Balinese smile are the foundations of their quality. Concierge, receptionist, manager, nanny, yoga teacher, massage therapist - whatever is your wish, there is someone to make it real!
The Chillhouse is situated in Canggu on the South Shore of Bali, a thirty minutes drive to Seminyak to the East and Tanah Lot Temple to the West. There is surf all over and the mountains to ride are just an hour drive away.
Canggu is the hippest place to be on Bali at the moment. The area has been undergoing quite some development, however the places that have sprung up are different compared to what has been touristically happening to Kuta and Legian. Canggu is alternative, and sustainability is what you feel.
The influence of the surf scene is ever present, however more hip and old school than cool. Old refurbed motorbikes, stylish surf shops, bars playing alternative tunes, and restaurants serving food that suits all tastes from super healthy veggie dishes to total hangover burgers.
Teachers & Instructors
The Chillhouse teachers, coaches and guides are all locals with well-spoken English. They have undergone intense training and experienced a great variety of guests. Having earned their respect in the water over the years and having gained experience in the immense variety of Bali’s waves over the course of their lives, they are here for you.
With the help and combination of experience, modern-day surf forecasting, tide charts, factual assessment of your surfing skills, physical strength, individual fear-level and personal goals, it is The Chillhouse’s aim to make sure you surf heaps of good waves in the beautiful warm Indian Ocean during your relatively short stay on Bali.
As crowds have become an issue, if conditions allow, they will be taking you to places not too many surfers know about.
