"Kalon Surf: My New Happy Place"

I always dreamed of a place like this but honestly never thought it existed until now. I joined 7 other women- all of us looking for an adventure and a bit of pampering. What we got was WAY more. Everything at Kalon is planned to perfection with our needs and wants always in mind. I've been to resorts all around the world, but NOTHING compares to the professionalism and the quality of Kalon. Starting with the staff - so friendly, accommodating and fun to be around. We were like one big family. We laughed, we danced, we surfed and did pilates together. Then there's the food - so fresh, healthy and incredibly delicious. Definitely 5 star. As for accommodations - the mansion is amazing! Immaculate, spacious with tons of great little spots to sit and relax while surrounded by the beauty of the forest and breathtaking views of the ocean. We all loved the infinity pool - great place to hang out and unwind after a hard morning of surfing.
The surfing was the best part of the trip. Starting with the surf instructors - Henry, Roberto and Esteban - these guys were truly an amazing team! These guys were professional yet funny and warm. They never made you feel awkward - instead encouraged and pushed you to perform at higher levels. They exuded so much patience while maintaining a smile and a sense of humour. The lessons were progressive and dialed to our own individual abilities. The daily video analysis (filmed by the great Diego) was really helpful. They take the time to dissect your skills and give you pointers. The videos are also a blast to watch.
The beach we learned at (Playa Hermosa) has a sandy bottom and the water is incredibly warm - making it even more pleasant. We didn't want to leave. On our 4th day of surfing, they took us to Playa Dominicalito to surf the green waves. I never imagined we would be good enough to surf these waves after only 3 days - but we did it! This was an unbelievable day and truly the highlight of my week.
7 days is just NOT long enough - although you get 5 days of surf, a rest day (where we got a wonderful massage and went zip-lining) and tons of rest time - you just want to stay there forever. Our group is already planning our second trip.
Thank you to everyone at Kalon for making this such a perfect dream vacation! I have found my new HAPPY PLACE!
