bali surf Camp with swell
Walk to Bali’s best surf spots
Our purpose-built Bali surf camp is right in the heart of the popular surf village of Bingin. Swell has the look and feel of a boutique hotel, but with the relaxed, social vibe you would find in a surf resort or Bali Surf Camp.
In designing our surf hotel, our thought was to create the perfect surf resort for solo travelers or sociable couples and friends to get together with other surfers. At the heart of Swell is a big open communal area with sunken sofa/fire pit, pool table, games area, huge dining table, and bar. A Ping Pong table stands at the end of our massive swimming pool and deck.
And the location of Swell Bali Surf Camp?
Right in the center of Bingin; we are a genuinely short walk to the surf, beach and great restaurants.
Did you know: The Bukit doesn’t just cater for advanced surfers, It also has some of the best beginner and intermediate surf spots in Bali, within walking distance from Swell Bali Surf Camp

We started Swell Surf Camp in the Caribbean in 2009 , 5000+ happy clients later, and being rated the #1 Surf & Yoga holiday in the Caribbean we decided that the best place to have another Swell Hotel is in Bali.
Why choose Bingin for your bali surf camp
We looked at the surf beaches and area’s where most surf camps in Bali are located; Seminyak and Canggu, but when we compared those places to Bingin, we knew we had to be in Bingin:

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 Surf camp in Bali or surf resort in Bali that is better located than Swell
We know we are not the cheapest surf camp in Bali. If cheap is what you are looking for then Swell might not be your best choice in Bali for a Surf Camp experience.
Just as we do with our other surf camp in the Caribbean, we want to do things right: Good food, quality new matrasses and sheets, clean rooms at a superb location. That’s why we aim to offer the best Surf Camp / Surf Retreat experience in Bali, maybe not at the cheapest rate, but we do believe we provide excellent value at fair pricing to our customers.
It’s your surf holiday, let’s make it a good one!
Traveling by yourself? You couldn’t have picked a better place to stay !
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 Bali Surf Camp 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.
