Bali is an island of Indonesia. It is mostly Hindu and becoming more and more popular. The beautiful rice fields, mountains, and beaches make it a heaven for people loving nature. Besides nature, it is also a hotspot for artists, hippies, surfers, hipsters, celebrities, and the rich. Each village and area attracts its own people making it possible to see Bali from a lot of different angles.

The area around the retreat, which is close to Canggu, is known for its excellent surf, beautiful nature, and peacefulness. It is a nice getaway from the crowded areas in Canggu, Kuta, which are more hectic and include a lot of tourism and partying. It is the friendliness of the locals that make a lot of people want to come to Bali each year. The area around Canggu is one of the best surf locations in Bali and Pelan Pelan's surf school employs only the best local teachers.
