Surf

With water temperatures averaging 28C/84F and consistent surf all year round, Bali is truly a surfer’s paradise. And with Canggu as the home base, there are breaks and waves suitable for all levels, swells and tides, almost all year round. And when the conditions are not right at the home breaks, you can search along the magnificent Bali coast. With more than 60 waves less than an hour away, the best wave for your level can always be found. Your first surf session is on us, included in the standard Serene Retreat package. If you wanna surf more, or wanna go explore different surf breaks, very affordable, great value for money add-on surf packages are offered. Please send an inquiry to know more.

You will always feel supported and safe learning at your correct level - whether you have never surfed before or are already an experienced surfer. You will receive personal attention at all times, with individual feedback provided throughout each session. There is always awareness of up-to-the-minute conditions—swell, wind and tide --- where you and your level of skill will be taken to the right spot at the right time - from easy beach breaks for beginners up to reef breaks for more experienced surfers.

The Serenity Eco & Yoga Retreat offer the perfect opportunity to learn how to surf in a safe and supportive environment, or alternatively explore the amazing variety of surf breaks Bali has to offer.

Waterfall

On a hot Bali day (and it's always hot), play like a kid in the cool water, surrounded by mountains and tropical palm trees above. The waterfall is isolated but has become a popular to explore and relax. Natural scenery around Waterfall is quite beautiful, with green trees and beautiful. Near the waterfall has been constructed with several shower baths from natural springs. For photography lovers, you should come with your camera.

Spiritual Cleansing

Bali is often referred to as the island of "holy water" because of the countless number of sacred springs on Bali and because holy water is the key element in their purification ceremonies. Water represents flow of energy (also known as prana or chi), connected to emotion and intuition. Spiritual cleansing ritual (Melukat) is part of the Balinese Hindu life events (Manusa Yadnya). Its purpose is to purify a human body and soul (as opposed to the cleansing ritual for a building or temple). It is said to wash away turmoil and sickness acquired from negative karma in both this life (prarabda karmaphala) and past lives (sancita karmaphala), believed that these rituals assist in cleansing our bodies on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

Plantation

Enrich your knowledge with number of tropical fruits plantation and spices, while a local will demonstrate a climbing coconut. He will then serve you a young coconut as refreshment.

Natural Spring Water

Heated deep within the earth, the healing mineral water is colorless and odorless from the source that is located on the property. For hundred of years this clear carbonated water has created legends of miraculous curative powers. The Natural spring water would be perfect for a relaxing dip after a long week of retreat.
