“A splurge that is well worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

I'm traveling all over southeast asia for 3-4 months and this is bar far the most I'll spend in any given week. It was a splurge for myself after 10 years in corporate america. My god was it worth it. I've never felt so taken care of in my life. Laundry, smoothies, inspirational turn down service, killer food. The list goes on. Honestly this trip was a life changer. You'll meet amazing people and really step up your surf game. Do it!

Room Tip: You are going to have so much fun I wouldn't worry about which room you are booking.

Hi! How are your travels going?

Thanks so much for the great review. So glad you took the leap of faith to come and do a retreat with us and that you got so much from your experience.

We pride ourselves on the fantastic food here at Surf Goddess Retreats so our lovely chefs will be thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed it during your stay.

We had SO much fun with your group. It was a blast!

Keep up the surfing! Ooh! And send me a link to your blog. We would all love to read it.

Warmest regards and stay in touch.

WOW! I would not hesitate to recommend this retreat to any woman I meet. As a woman traveling alone, new places can be nerve-wracking. This retreat takes care of you from the moment you set foot in Bali until you take off at the end of the week. I felt so comfortable and welcomed the whole time I was there. Want delicious healthy food at every meal? Fresh tropical fruit smoothies in between? Massages? Facials? Hair treatments? Mani/pedi? Pool? Garden? Gazebo? Yoga (with probably the best instructor you'll encounter - she can break down any yoga pose to the point that even a beginner can figure it out... amazing)? Surfing? The guys at Rip Curl School of Surf are great and Mel will help you with anything else you need - she even had breakfast with us before we departed for the surf school in the mornings! Everyone at Surf Goddess knows everything there is to know about Seminyak, so dinner and drinks out were super easy and fun. Eating in was delicious, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Want to get your hair done? Shopping? Wax? Just ask! The wonderful women at Surf Goddess Retreats will point you in the right direction. For Bliss Day, we went for a bike tour to Ubud where we tried all different types of coffee and tea, visited traditional Balinese houses, and biked past some weddings! The guides were great! This was definitely the best vacation I've ever treated myself to. I intend to try Snow Goddess in Japan as soon as I have enough time off work...and the funds to do it. TREAT YOURSELF. It doesn't get better than this.

Hi Caitlin!

Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a detailed comment. We are always sad to see our Goddesses go. But it fills us with joy that you made some good friends during your stay here!

We make it our priority to assist guests with whatever they may need whilst staying here with us to make sure every goddess leaves with amazing memories.

It truly is our pleasure to look after such amazing women from all over the globe.

Please be sure to check back in with us in the future as we continue to add more exciting offerings to our retreats and expand to more exotic locations around the world!

Hope to see you in Japan in the new year!

This is the first yoga retreat I have been too and it set the bar very high. In a quiet lane away from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak. The accommodation is excellent and all the staff from the customer management team through to the gardeners were so friendly and helpful. Food was delicious.Loads to do and even if you are a yoga novice there is no pressure to participate in every practice. The "Goddesses" came from all over the world and were an amazing bunch of women who made the experience even better. My best experience was cycling through the paddy fields and Indonesian villages - beautiful. I would highly recommend this retreat but be warned once you get there you will never want to leave :-) ............

A great week meeting some gorgeous godesses from all over the world! Dont be afraid to come as an individual. The food was off the hook, and had some great experiences- the Batik being my favourite. Don't miss out on the Hair cream treatment, and the hot stone massages. Lots of attention to detail and you can do whatever it is that you want- heaps of yoga/no yoga, heaps of shopping/no shopping, heaps of laying in the sun/no laying in the sun....Great staff and nothing is too much trouble.

One of the most memorable weeks of my life! Great people, wonderful staff, amazing food, relaxing massage, fun surfing, and replenishing yoga! I would highly recommend this retreat! The women I met are now friends, and the memories I have are priceless. Bliss day was a blast, with so many options to chose from, and even all the recommendations on where to stay in Bali after the retreat was helpful. I enjoyed surfing various spots in Bali. The yoga was rejuvenating with Wid - even if you have never done yoga before! My cheeks still hurt from all the laughing. I will be back Surf Goddesses, perhaps even to join the Snow Goddesses. Thank you!!! - Amy O.

Great surf camp if you a) have limited time in Bali and b) are a solo traveler. The villa is beautiful, located in the heart of Seminyak, just off Oberoi St. Has a lovely pool and patio for lounging. And the spa treatments included in the Surf Goddess package are amazing. The Surf Goddess leaders are great about making your stay as seamless as possible. They can organize small things like laundry and bigger things like booking a car to Ubud or to see other places in Bali. The surf lessons are really helpful. Melinda is the "surf whisperer" - her enthusiasm of the sport is contagious. The Ripcurl guys provide great instruction - try to get off Legian and go to Canggu! Great place to meet other travelers - Seminyak is a fun city but hard to meet people as a solo traveler so Surf Goddess gives you instant friends. The food is delicious. the experience is very expensive, but worth it if you have limited time to spend in Bali and want an easy vaca where you don't have to manage any logistics!

Totally recommend this experience. From the beginning with a warm welcome from Sally, Dwita, Melinda and Widya and the rest of the staff at the retreat. It is a beautiful space - relaxing, energising and encouraging to making new friendships and trying new skills.

For anyone willing to try new experiences this is the trip for you. I can't describe how much fun i had. I was lucky to meet some lovely ladies that had the same zest for adventure as myself. The yoga, surfing and bliss day provided me a holiday I will never forget and be able to return home relaxed and feeling like I had a holiday!
