Luxury Surfing Hotels

1/ Nihiwatu, Sumba Island, Indonesia
This small hideaway actually limits the number of ‘surfing guests’ to avoid crowding their amazing left handed break.

2/ The Byron at Byron Resort & Spa, Byron Bay, Australia
Set within a magnificent rainforest and only a five minute walk to Tallow’s Beach, which provides consistent waves throughout the year.

3/ Naladhu, Maldives
Modern surfing arrived here in the 1970s and today it is quickly becoming a surf mecca.

4/ Las Ventanas al Paraíso, Baja Mexico A super-chic world class resort only 10 minutes from Costa Azul.

5/ Amanwella, Tangalle, Sri Lanka You will need to bring your own board and hire a local, which the GM can assist with, to find the best breaks. The resort feels out of place, as if it should be perched high amongst the hills in Los Angeles – very modern.

6/ Royal Davui Island Resort, Fiji
Exclusive access to Frigate Passage is only a 25 minute boat ride away.

7/ The Wickaninnish Inn, Tofino, Canada
This is surfing lumberjack style, eh. Not bad for Canada but beware you contend with very cold water conditions.

8/ Ponta Dos Ganchos Exclusive Resort, Santa Catarina, Brazil
One of the countries best resorts.

9/ Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort, Hawaii
You have to love the cheesiness of Hawaii and Waikiki does it best. Right out front are long board rentals and multiple breaks.

10/ The Spire Queenstown, New Zealand
Consult Exclusively NZ for a heli-surfing experience where you can jump off a helicopter into Big Bay – a secret surfing spot in the middle of nowhere.

    Awesome! You don’t think to pair luxury Cabo hotels and surfing together but surfing is one of the best activities for a Cabo vacation. Thanks for putting this together. Keep up the great work!
