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.

    "Having three teenage boys, this was the ideal holiday for us. The surfing lessons were excellent and lots of fun for us all. The yoga lessons were relaxing and energizing and ideal preparation for surfing. The setting at Pelan. It is beautiful with lovely tropical plants and birds, with a very inviting swimming pool which was used many times a day by our family when we weren't busy with the other activities. Our rooms were ideal for us with an upstairs and downstairs for the kids. One of the highlights was the incredible food, healthy and delicious lunches and amazing breakfasts. Two of our favorites being the mango/yogurt and banana pancakes were so good! And most importantly, the people. Genuinely friendly and interested and always happy to help. Thank you Emma and Putu for a brilliant holiday! "

    "We had a perfect stay at Pelan Pelan! Emma, Putu, and the rest of the staff make your stay there as relaxed as possible. They help you with anything. The yoga and surf teachers are very emphatic and will help you overcome fear or take all the time you need while practicing. Everything is clean and it really feels like home. All the guest are on the same page. Especially great is the food. Perfect banana pancakes and great lunch which is served on the big table with the rest of the guest. In two months Pelan will move with their staff to another place. We are confident the new location will be even better as it looks already wonderful. Cheers Marijn and Sophie."

The surf lessons, the yoga and the meditation were also really great. I went back after two weeks, because I missed it so much! And another big plus is that I had to extend my visa and they helped me to organize it. I really want to go there again!"

    "There were a nice variety of activities and it was excellent value for money. There were only a few things I would change, I think the surf lessons should start off more slowly for beginners, I have surfed for many years (though not well or confidentially) and found the surf too big for me let alone a beginner. I also thought there should be fruit juice available after yoga but the yoga classes ended after the person that makes the juices had finished work. The yoga and mediation were good, the massages great, the food was delicious, the people friendly and the value for money unbeatable."

    "Whether you want to go surfing on your own or join the organised tour, the environment of Pelan Pelan has much to offer on only a scooter's ride distance, while the retreat itself is located in the middle of characteristic rice paddies."

    "The food, both breakfast and lunch, deserve a special recognition as its quality is superb!"

    "The hospitality of Emma and Putu and everyone works there is great. I loved how flexible they are as i had to change my massages sessions few times as well as my private meditation session."

    "Kis cooks amazing food and make great juices. Lensie cleans the rooms perfectly. "

    "The yoga and meditation sessions were awesome."

    "There are few improvements that would have made my stay even better, the AC in my private room wasn't working well, and even after it was fixed it wasn't cooling properly. I think the property can use some Fans installed in the common areas as well as the room. the last 4 days were so humid and hot and it wasn't comfortable sitting outside."

    "Also the tour was included in the package, but i had to pay entrance and parking fees and didn't have a guide, it was just a driver taking us from a place to another. would have been great if i knew that in advanced in order to arrange for another tour with proper guide and also have a heads up on the extra cost. "

    "I booked the surfing package, but i only took one lesson as i got panicked in open water unfortunately . It would if been good to know if i can't get a refund, that way i would have booked by lesson."

    "I was also mislead in terms of the location of pelan pelan in terms of accessing the beach and a cafe, i was told its 5 mins walking distance. but it was 10 mins by car so commuting around was a bit of a challenge specially that i don't know how to ride a scooter."

    "Overall my stay was beautiful and i met amazing people in the retreat." website, edited

  • Review by a traveler from Dallas, Texas, USA

    "Pelan Pelan is one of the favorite places I've stayed in all of Southeast Asia! The surf and yoga packages they offer are perfectly balanced and so much value for what they are charging. The food is amazing and they easily accommodated my vegan diet! If you are new to surfing the instructors give personalized attention to help you feel comfortable. You will catch waves on your first day! Just watch out for that shore break ;) Yoga classes are the perfect balance to the surfing to stretch out your sore shoulders. The location is a bit away from the main strip which means it's quiet and secluded. Rooms are simple and have everything you need, including air con (must have in Bali!!), comfy beds (I slept so good here!), beautiful pool, free water available so bring your bottle to refill, there's not much else I can say but Go! Trust me. Perfect for solo travelers or couples. You'll meet some of the nicest people from all over the world here."

    "With no idea what to expect when I turned up o was absolutely blown away from the get go on my arrival to the resort. Friendly faces greeting me first thing and an instant relaxing vibe throughout the resort. Over the next few days I found myself challenging my fitness levels and having the time of my life learning to surf and at the same time entering the most relaxed state of mind I have ever known. Amazing location, phenomenal service, friendliest staff and a very homely feel. Highly recommended and I will definitely be returning"

    "Wake at the crack of down to surf on a pristine nearly secluded beach surrounded by greenery and distant volcanoes. Relax under a palm tree drinking water from a coconut. Return to Pelan Pelan where an amazing freshly made Balinese feast and papaya juice are waiting. Indulge in a relaxing massage. Take a dip in the pool. Sit on a private veranda reading a book. Join group yoga on the terrace. Hop on a scooter to drive through the rice fields and explore a bit in town. Find your beanbag or swing on 'the lawn' to watch sunset. Sip bingtang and feast on seafood while listening to the waves and gazing up at the stars. fall asleep happy in your beautiful suite."


    "A day in the life of Pelan Pelan. Curated perfectly by the lovely and accommodating Emma."

    "We did the surf & yoga retreat which was fantastic, and loved waking up to a delicious breakfast, then a guided surf (my wife went from being afraid of the ocean to fully surfing properly in 3 days) followed by a delicious lunch, massage, yoga class then a cold drink watching the sunset in the evening."

    "I will be going back for sure! "

All of the surf instructors are great and make you feel very safe in the water! The breakfast and lunch prepared by the beautiful cooks Lisna and Kis is beyond good and a great variety! Not to mention the other little babies that occupy Pelan Pelan, Tyson and Angel Emma and Putus adorable pups, always up for a cuddle and very well behaved, some of the luckiest dogs in Bali!"

    "My dream for a tropical restorative adventure came true at Pelan Pelan. Here they really care about guests having quality experiences and that at the end of each day you're smiling."


    "It goes without saying that the rooms and social areas are clean and comfortable. The freshly made authentic Balinese food by the friendly staff is delicious. The surf lessons are also good quality and you will always have one instructor for no more than two people. They will teach you about the art and science of surfing, and the social aspect..which waves you should catch and which belong to others so you can have good manners even out at sea ;) The yoga nicely compliments the surf lessons and the massages here are deeply relaxing - the girls are well trained."


    "Pelan Pelan is well priced for the quality and range of experiences you get. But to top it off this place has a good energy and this is why I'm coming back in two weeks to end my trip on a high."

The perfect spot to unwind and relax either by the pool or on the balcony looking out over the quite. The beach is a short scooter ride away or easy to walk to with some gorgeous little restaurants serving delicious traditional food on the way. The yoga classes were some of the best I've ever had, and we had some amazing trips arranged trekking mountains and visiting hidden beauty spots made this trip very special. The food is INCREDIBLE....traditional and delicious made with love. I can't recommend this place enough it really is very special and you feel the love from the moment you arrive to the last day.

    "I was lucky enough to spend about 10 days in Pelan Pelan last November. The package Emma is offering is truly unique and worthwhile."

    "As soon as you enter Pelan Pelan you can feel the tranquility and beauty of this place. I as a female solo traveler felt very safe and at home; because this place definitely won't make you feel like a tourist. Pelan Pelan offers a range of scooters that one can rent for a really reasonable price too and driving down the rice paddies in the mornings or for a sunset surf is probably one of the best memories you will collect. "

    "The food is so so good!! It will make your tummy dance. The in house chef creates everyday fresh dishes of your choice from the menu and delicious smoothies too! The surf lessons are fun and Putu and the other surf instructors are very supportive, I found that my surfing skills improved a lot after that surf retreat. Also the meditation classes were one of the best one's I have ever taken! Don't miss out on the great massage offer either!"

We will recommend it to all our friends and hope to return again soon! "

    "In April 2015 I came to Surfana Bali, after hearing excellent stories from a friend. Initially, I was planning to stay for one night. However, after meeting the incredibly warm and welcoming hosts (Emma and Putu), and seeing what a true paradise this venue is, I decided to spend most of my two weeks holiday here. I cannot remember ever being as relaxed as during my stay here. It is where I experienced the slow life - taking the time to surf (several times a day), read a book, enjoy yoga and have relaxing massages. Putu is an astonishing teacher who made me very passionate about surfing. I could highly recommend Surfana Bali to anyone going to Bali to surf and/or relax, and hope to return soon myself."

He took me to many different breaks to find perfect waves. Emma, the manager, was also very helpful and makes sure all guests are all together having fun, relaxing, yoga, massages, whatever takes your fancy. Surfana had a very chilled vibe about it, great location, close to everything, just a short scooter ride away, cool restaurants and bars or the main beach stripe. I most definitely recumbent Surfana whatever you are looking for in a retreat, I can't wait to go back in the near future."

When you are a surfer than would this be the most perfect chance to learn and improve. You really learn better and make more progress when the circumstances are good as Surfana's circumstances. The friendly staff, the food, the care and the rooms, everything is just perfect. I would highly recommend this place to all of you. Just visit it and be happy :)."

    "Bali is a great place to surf, but it can be crowded in some places. So for those who look for a quiet place, Surfana Camp (formerly Pelan Pelan, which means slowly) - this is it. Run by a young and charming Dutch (Emma) and a warm hearted local Balinese and surf guide (Putu) everything is so well organized, you can just relax and go surf. You will be taken at the right time to the right beach for the best waves. Scooters to rent are available too. If you want to go to party, it is easy as well. Famous Deus Ex Macchina is like a 10 to 15 minutes drive by scooter. And, not to forget and for me the most important: Lisna and Kis! The two locals take care of rooms, breakfast and lunch. When I stayed there, every guest that left, wanted to take them home. Because they are pure souls, because they cook breakfast and lunch that should be getting an award, because they are just great. You can go surfing in Bali for less money but this place is worth it."

The garden is beautiful a spacious. They have the most amazing dog named 'Angel' and she is always happy to play or you can take her out for a stroll on the beach. The rooms are big, super clean and relaxed. The crew is amazing and make you the best breakfast and lunch and the surf instructors will take you to the best spots where no one is around. I've stayed for 3 weeks and I did not want to leave. Now being back home I certainly miss the place a lot and can't wait to go back!"

    "Absolutely brilliant hosts! We stayed here for nine days and loved it. The hosts - Emma and Putu - are just great. Emma makes this place feel like a spot of relaxed luxury in an unspoiled spot. In my few years of surfing, Putu is the best surf instructor / guide I've come across. This place comes highly recommended by us!"

    "Surfana Bali is a great place to stay. You can do, as you like - it really feels like home. Only thing is that you now enjoy everything you do; take a great surf lesson, enjoy the delicious breakfast and family lunch and take a dip in the swimming pool. The rooms are great and clean, also when you share one with other guests. The staff is really helpful and kind! It's also great that you can rent a scooter to drive around, take a relaxing massage and arrive and leave any day you want. In short, great stay with great people and great food and superb surfing. I will definitely come back!"

    "The whole experience was super easy, Emma is a great host and sorted everything for us, from the booking, the hotel transfer, arranging a bike for transport and recommending places to visit. The B&B is in an amazing location, peaceful, quiet and with amazing surroundings. Canggu is a really cool unspoiled place o stay in Bali, close to the busy area of Semniyak and far enough away to enjoy the cool one-off cafes, bars and chilled out environment. The room was spacious and as there are only 4 rooms it's like a private getaway, which is hard to find. The pool is beautiful and there's a common area for eating and chilling. Overall, I would recommend Pelan Pelan for anyone wanting to visit Bali for a relaxing holiday, close to the beach for surf and yoga classes - Emma even offers surfing and fitness classes too! Thanks again - we will definitely be back!"
