A new surf experience in Bali
Walk to some of Bali’s best waves
A Swell Bali Experience
COMFORT & STYLE
Swell has the look and feel of a boutique hotel retreat, but with the relaxed, social vibe you would find in a surf resort or surf camp in Bali.
In designing our surf hotel from scratch, our thought was to create the perfect surf resort for solo travellers or sociable couples and friends to get together with other surfers.
At the heart of Swell is a big, airy, open communal area with sunken sofa/fire pit, pool table, games area, huge dining table and a bar. A ping pong table stands at the end of our massive swimming pool and deck.
And the location of Swell? Right in the centre of Bingin; we are a genuinely short walk to the surf, beach and great restaurants.
Arrive as a guest, leave as a friend
A SOCIAL STAY
We started Swell in the Caribbean in 2009.
7500+ happy clients later and having been consistently rated the #1 Surf & Yoga holiday in the Caribbean, we finally found our perfect location for another Swell hotel.
Swell Bali is the ideal set up for solo travellers, sociable couples and groups of friends that want to meet new people on their holiday in Bali.
A place like Swell means that if you are travelling alone, you won’t be alone as soon as you step through our door. Sharing a surf holiday experience is far more fun in a group than being by yourself!
Swell Bali offers a unique lodging/holiday experience: We provide high-quality boutique hotel accommodation right in the centre of Bingin, within walking distance to Bali’s best surf spots.
But Swell Bali is not just about providing a hotel bed for visiting travellers: We are all about providing a social stay in a boutique surf hotel setting.
What does that mean?
Well, we allocated a large part of our building and budget to our huge communal area where our guests can chill, relax, socialise, work, eat and play games.
Our dining table seats 18 people and we provide daily healthy breakfasts, but lunch and dinner meals can also be ordered from the bar. We can cater to vegans, vegetarians and cope with most dietary restrictions.
Swell is the ideal place both for solo travellers and for sociable couples / friends who want to meet other interesting people on their Bali holiday; Play some pool or a game of Ping Pong or Darts or sit at our specially designed games stations for one of the many board games we have at Swell.
unique surf holidays
The first Swell was opened in 2009 on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. Located in the town of Cabarete. Considered the action sports capital of the Caribbean, with excellent: surfing, kite, wind and wing surfing conditions.
In 2020 the second Swell was opened at the best surfing location in Bali, Bingin
WALK TO SURF
There is no need to hop on a scooter or get into a taxi when you want to surf Bingin, Impossibles or Dreamland beach.
Just a short walk to the cliff edge and you can see most of the Bukit’s waves on the west coast.
There are waves for surfers of all levels, from people who have never surfed before to intermediate and expert waves.
Never surfed before and want to learn to surf? No problem we can set you up with great surf instructors who can teach you the sport of surfing in a safe, quick and fun way.
Already have done some surfing before but want to use your Bali Surf Holiday to improve? We can help you with novice and intermediate level surf instruction too.
Restaurants, spas, fitness centres and surf shops are within 100 meters from Swell.
Don’t want to surf?
The white sandy beaches of Bingin and Dreamland are perfect for lazy days at Bali’s finest white sand beaches.

Our boutique surf camp / resort accommodation is located in Bingin, on the Bukit Penisula, right in the centre of the best waves in Bali. We chose our location carefully: Swell is very deliberately placed so that you only have a short walk (250m) to the beach. Restaurants are all around us and Yoga, two gyms, a mini-mart, a spa, a French bakery, and even a laundry are all within a very short walk. There is no surf resort or surf hotel in Bali that is better located than Swell.
See the package pricing page for details on the different surf holiday packages we offer with Swell.
We are the most centrally located hotel in Bingin, and lots of people come to Bingin for the world-class waves. However, Bingin is also a great destination for people who don’t surf: Several white sandy beaches are a short walk from us. Love healthy and tasty food? There are over a dozen quality restaurants in our area serving all different kinds of cuisine.
So yes, people that do not surf are also very welcome at our Bingin hotel.
The average age of Swell clients varies from week to week.
General speaking we cater to clients between 25 and 65 years old. Since we are not the cheapest surf hotel in Bali we tend not to get many 18-21 year olds who are on a super-tight budget. Swell is not a suitable place for children so the minimum age for a Swell Surf Holiday is 15.
Yes, Yes, Yes! Thats why our place is designed the way it is (it’s not an accident). Our communal area is deliberately set up to encourage our guests to speak to each other, get to know their fellow surfers and hang out. Don’t chose our place if you want to stay in your room all the time; it’s not a good choice. Our rooms are lovely and comfy, but there’s deliberately no TV or wifi in them to encourage everyone out into the social spaces.
Bali is a great place for learning the absolute basics of surfing in a fun, safe and quick way, we can set you up with our partner surf school for beginner surf lessons.
We started our Luxury Surf & Yoga Retreat in the Caribbean in 2009. Clients loved the concept of the luxury of a boutique hotel with the social aspects of a hostel. It’s ideal for people travelling alone but because of the facilities in our place, and its location, it’s also ideal for a group of good surfers to stay too.
We placed it in the best location in Bali; Bingin. It ticks all the boxes: Stunning beach – Awesome surf – restaurants (including Mexican and Frencha, a French bakery, just a few metres from us), bars, 2 fitness centres within a short walk, places that offer yoga classes, surf shops and lots of local charm.
