Adults-only Bali Surf retreat

A New Bali Surf Retreat

After running one of the most successful and popular surf retreats in the Caribbean for the last 11 years, Swell is opening a brand new hotel in autumn 2020.  Our purpose built Bali Surf retreat has been designed and built to perfection for you to host your surf and Yoga retreat.  Our huge wooden deck around the pool is just perfect to hold your Yoga classes beneath the palm trees early morning or late afternoon.  Our onsite massage room means your guests won’t even have to leave the premises for a great massage treatment. 

And the location of Swell?  We are right in the center of the hip and cool surf town of Bingin, a short walk from a beautiful white sandy beach.  

Swell Caribbean reviewSwell has been open in the Caribbean for over 10 years with 6500 + happy clients who absolutely loved staying in our social Boutique surf hotel. 

If you would like to experience the same level of hospitality in a brand new location, come and visit Swell Bali in 2020!


SWELL BALI Surf Retreat

Steps away from Bali's best waves

If you are looking for a venue to host your Surf and Yoga retreat, there is no better-placed Bali Surf retreat.  The Bukit Peninsula is a surfing paradise; Bingin, Impossibles and Dreamland are all a short walk from us and Bingin has a wonderful beginner break to enjoy.  Bingin Beach is one of the prettiest beaches in the whole of Bali. 

Uluwatu, Padang-Padang and Balangan are a fun, short scooter ride away, as are some of the best cultural experiences, such as the Fire Dance at Uluwatu Temple.

Host Your Bali Surf & yoga Retreat

Bali Retreat

Want to host your own Bali Surf & Yoga Retreat at Swell?
We are perfectly set up to host a private retreat in Bali for groups of up to 18 People. The design of our building is carefully thought out so that we cater perfectly to the needs of a big group.  Our rooms are all the same size and with the same facilities, so there can be no arguments about who gets which room and our very large communal space is set up for total enjoyment of our (your) guests.  Oh, and we have the largest pool in Bingin 🙂

Contact us to discuss your needs or come and visit us to see what we can offer

If you are hosting a retreat, the best way is to send Clare a message .  Let her know how many nights, how many guests you will have and what you would need us to provide in the way of meals/surf lessons etc.  Please note though retreat-organisers, it’s not cheap to rent Swell Bali entirely; a 7-night rental of all 9 rooms starts at $5000 USD.  The final price you will pay will depend on the number of guests you have and what you need us to provide for your retreat.

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 Bingin Surf retreat with a better location than Swell.

We started our  Surf 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 and is also a good choice for a retreat.  But after looking for a location for a second surf camp, with detours in Mexico and Costa Rica; we finally made it back to Bali after 20 years.  Both Swell’s are designed with a social aspect as the focus and that’s what makes both venues a great choice for groups.  We haven’t forgotten the comfort level either, so our rooms have A/C, (and mosquito screens at the windows if you like sleeping with fresh air), natural latex mattresses, Egyptian cotton sheets, and very tasty and healthy food.  

Bingin is a very cool & quaint little Surf, Yoga & fitness village in the SW corner of Bali.  Bingin is unique in that it is still a real Balinese village. There are no high rise buildings or massive hotels. Instead, you will likely have the local cows wandering down the street (they are as chilled out as the villagers).  The beach is really charming with bright white sand.  The surf is world-class at Bingin and on the different tides, suitable for beginners, intermediate and experts surfers.
There are restaurants who cater to vegan, vegetarian and all food choices; we even have a French bakery opening in October 2020, just 150m from our front door. 
Several places offer Yoga and fitness classes. Bingin is the ideal base for a Bali Surf & Yoga Holiday.

A short walk from Swell Bali you will find the world-class wave of Bingin.  Bingin is a machine like a left-hander that breaks over  reef, however on the higher tides and smaller swells it’s also a great wave for beginners and intermediates. Impossibles is another wave that Swell guests can walk to, without the need for a scooter or taxi. It’s a long left-hander that is suitable for intermediate and expert surfers. For long rides, it’s best on a bigger swell and can easily hold waves up to 4-5 x overhead. On smaller waves, you can still enjoy Impossibles but don’t expect the waves to connect all the way through.
Looking for mellow intermediate waves? Walk to Dreamland and enjoy mellow waves. Dreamland is best on the lower tides.Overall if you want to enjoy the best waves that Bali has to offer, you could not be better located than in Bingin with Swell bali Surf Camp

We are perfectly set up to host a premiere Bali Retreat.
We can accommodate 18 clients + staff at our retreat. Our staff is well trained in meeting our clients high demands. We can cater for people with most dietary requirements: Vegan, Vegetarian or Gluten – Free; is no problem for our chef.
We do have a limited amount of weeks available per year for Bali Retreats, so do contact us well in advance
