Bingin, on the Bukit Penisula, is right in the centre of the best waves in Bali and Swell is very deliberately placed so that you only have a short walk (250m) to the beach. Restaurants are all around us and Yoga, a gym, a mini-mart, a spa and even a laundry are all within a very short walk. There is no other hotel for solo travellers that is this conveniently located with proximity to beaches, surf, wellness and restaurants.

At our Surf Camp in the Caribbean, we are the #1 destination for solo / single travelers who want to meet new people on their adventure surf holiday.
70% of our clients travel to Swell solo. The way we are set up means that it is really easy to meet fellow travelers. We have breakfast together, we surf together and go out for sunset drinks.
The large communal area which is at the heart of our surf camps/hotels is the central meeting hub to socialize, play a game, and enjoy meals and drinks in the company of others.
Swell is not a suitable place for children, so we have a minimum age restriction of 16 years old
We started our Luxury Surf & Yoga Camp in the Caribbean 10 years ago. Clients loved the concept of the luxuries of a boutique hotel with the social aspects of a hostel. Swell in the Caribbean has ideal learning to surf conditions for people who have never surfed before. After looking for a location for a second Luxury Surf & Yoga Retreat, with detours in Mexico and Costa Rica; we finally made it back to Bali after 20 years. Yes, some things have changed in Bali, but a few things remained the same: the surf is world-class and the locals are still as friendly and smiley as ever.
We looked for a good location in Bali; Seminyak (too busy), Canggu (too busy), finally we made it to Bingin and we realized that it ticks all the boxes: Stunning beach – Awesome surf – restaurants, bars, fitness center, places that offer yoga classes and surf shops and lots of local charm.
We decided against opening a ‘Bali Surf Yoga Camp‘, instead decided on a boutique surf resort, less focus on the beginning surfers, and more on the intermediate and expert surfers. Swell Bali does not have in house surf instructors, unlike at Swell Surf Camp in the Caribbean. What is the same?
The same good vibe, ideal for solo travelers. The standard of accommodation is also the same: super comfortable rooms, mattresses, linen, and very tasty and healthy food.
