We started Swell in the Caribbean in 2009; 6500+ happy clients later and still rated the #1 Surf & Yoga holiday in the Caribbean, we decided that the best place to have another Swell Hotel is in Bali.
We chose Bingin, because it is the coolest little surf town that has something to offer everyone: Both surfers and non-surfers will be happy here. Surf, Yoga, wellness, healthy food and chill vibes is what Bingin is all about.

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 Hotel/Camp we are should be your 1st choice for solo/single travellers 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 travellers. We have breakfast together, we surf together and play together.
Our large, beautiful communal area at the heart of our surf camp/hotel is the central meeting hub to socialise, play games and enjoy meals and drinks in the company of others.
Swell is not a suitable place for children; we have a minimum age restriction of 16 years old.
We started our first Luxury Surf & Yoga Camp in the Caribbean 10 years ago. Clients loved our concept which is the luxury of a boutique hotel combined 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.
The surf is still world-class and the locals are still as friendly and smiley as ever.
We looked for the best location in Bali and ruled out Seminyak and Canggu (both too busy with heavy traffic), finally we made it to Bingin. Bingin simply ticks all the boxes: Stunning beach – awesome surf – restaurants, bars, a fitness centre and places that offer Yoga classes plus surf shops and buckets of local charm. Now though, there are even more great restaurants and shops on the Bukit to enjoy.
Swell Bali does not have in-house surf instructors, unlike at Swell Surf Camp in the Caribbean, but we have many top class local surf guides and surf instructors available to take you for surf lessons or surf-guiding.
Both of our Swell venues have the same good vibe, ideal for solo travellers. The standard of accommodation is also the same: Super-comfortable rooms, mattresses, linen and very tasty and healthy food.
