There are 2 accommodation options at Asu Camp. Two private 2 person bungalows and the ‘Big House’ which has 3 rooms and 2 baths.
The Big House:
The Sunrise Room is a spacious room of 25m squared that can be set up for a couple or a small family of 3-4 people. It has an ensuite private bath, lots of windows, high peaked ceiling with open air windows to the East that lets in lots of sunrise light and give amazing views of the coconut canopy that surrounds Asu Camp. French doors open towards the surf so you can check the surf from the comfort of your bed.
The Sunset Room is 15m squared and accommodates up to 2 people in twin beds or a couple in a double bed. The bathroom is shared and accessed through the living room.
The Loft is a spacious 35m squared second story space that has the feel of living in a tree house. The roof of the loft has 4 Nias style ‘windows’ that are actually the roof pushing up to open up a dormer style open air window, which offer a lot of ventilation and sweeping treetop views of the ocean in front and the coconut jungle all around. There is also a 4m long ‘hammock’ that is cut out of the floor and is hands down the ‘coolest’ place to hang out. The loft can accommodate 2-3 people in single beds and can also accommodate a couple in a double bed. The loft shares the bathroom downstairs that is accessed through the living room.
The Big House also has it’s own small kitchen with a refrigerator for easy access to cold beers and drinks, a water cooler, and a small round table and 3 chairs. The 20m squared Living Room in the middle of the house has a small library of books, an abundance of yoga mats, exercise balls and massage rollers, an Indo Board, and space to just hang out. The front of the Living Room has folding front doors that completely open up the front of the house to the wide terrace and the view of the ocean, offering the best view of the surf at Asu. The 24m squared terrace is the best place to sit back in a hammock or lazy chair and take in the view, check the surf, read a book or enjoy the breeze.
Our 2 private bungalows boast 12m squared terraces facing the surf at Asu. The rooms are a modest 16m squared and accommodate 2 people in single beds or a couple in a double bed, on the highest quality firm spring mattresses, with shelving, fans, and power inside the custom fitted mosquito nets. There are 2 cabinets with shelves and drawers for storing away your belongings. The rooms open up wide to the terrace with double French doors. Each bungalow terrace is equipped with 2 hammocks and 2 rattan lazy chairs for maximum chilling comfort in between surfs. The spacious 12m squared bathrooms are open to a small garden at the back of the bungalow and provide a very airy and fresh, yet private, ‘jungle living’ feeling. The toilets are flushing toilets and the bathrooms are tiled and adorned with lots of shells collected from the beach at Asu. The bungalows are equipped with AC and have water coolers for easy access to hydration. Each bungalow has it’s own surfboard rack and outside shower. The bungalows are on piers raised up 1-2m off of the ground that offer exceptional views of the surf. There is a back gate directly to the bathroom and stairs to the front terrace. These bungalows were designed with years of experience of Asu living, they are simple, yet elegant, modest, yet luxurious.
