Malole Surf House

Top choice surf camp in Nemberala

Built by surf legend Felipe Pomar, this surf lodge blends comfort, cuisine and style better than anywhere else in Rote. The four rooms are set in a large wooden house and guesthouse with day beds, ikat bedspreads, limitless laundry and more. You'll hit the right waves at the right time via the house boat. Closed during the wet season.

Sublime international seafood is but one highlight of the kitchen, which carves fresh sashimi, bakes fresh bread, and blends spectacular soups and curries. Mountain bikes, fishing trips and island excursions are also on offer.

The level of comfort and elegance here feels effortless (it isn't) and belies its extremely remote location.
