Lakey Peak Hotel (3*)
Located directly in front of the renowned Lakey Peak and a short walk to Periscopes, the Hotel Lakey Peak has been delicately positioned amongst swaying coconut palms resting…
East of Bali, deep in the Hu’u Bay, where Native people once lived in harmony with nature, lies the Hotel Aman Gati. Far enough from the crowds yet close enough for every convenience, you will experience peace and relaxation with some epic waves thrown in.
SURF ALL YEAR ROUND! The peak swell period is from April to September. Late and Early season, October to March, can offer perfect clean conditions with light winds
There are 5 world class surfing waves situated in the same bay directly in front of Aman Gati Hotel.
The Peak – Is a left and a right hand take off.
Lakey Peak – An intense hollow right and lefthand peak, with the left generally being longer and the right firing on the proper swell direction. The right is best at 5-8 foot and cooks during mid-tides but the left can provide some deep barrels during low tides if the swell is big enough.
Lakey Pipe – Is on either side of ‘The Peak’ and is a popular wave amongst the body boarders. ‘Nomans’ is however suitable for the more extreme surfer.
The Beachy – Only breaks in the lagoon with big swells and is more suitable for the less experienced surfer.
Lakey Left – This is located across the channel from the Peak. With the right size swell and direction this normally sectiony wave can line up and provide deep, lined-up barrels.
Lakey Right – A few hundred meters down the beach is a short, bowling righthander that breaks into a deep water dent in the reef. It has some fun barrels and holds only up to about 8 foot
Cobblestones – Is another popular wave within walking distance of the hotel.
Nungas – The big left across from Periscopes. Under 8 foot, the wave breaks down into several sections of 50 meters or so and is rippable. But at 8 foot, the sections start to connect offering rides of 200 metres or more, with flat spots, hot-dog walls, full-on barrels sections all thrown into one ride. The best take-off spot is determined on an hourly basis. It can handle a crowd and swells as big as they come!
Periscopes – A fun righthander at the eastern end of a long reef that sticks way out into the bay. Periscopes can offer a high, tight barrel over a relatively safe reef platform, and a clean exit into a channel. It has a short paddle out and is better at high tides with glassy or northerly (offshore) winds. It’s blown out by dry season trades. Holds only to about 8 foot and about a mile walk up the beach from the surf camp.
