Lombok with its warm tropical water has been a secret tip for surfers for many years. A wide variety of surf spots spread all along the coast and Kuta is an ideal starting point to explore all the hidden treasures.

Drop In has a small café with only few tables on the terrace or under a mango tree and serves uncomplicated, fresh food. Daily homemade bread and sandwiches, mouth-watering cakes, or healthy salads, it's your choice! You will be served daily breakfast, 2 dinners, and fresh healthy welcome juice during your stay. Coffee, tea, and water refill are also available throughout the day.
