Encircling the pool are our pavilions, each housing a bedroom with garden bathroom and sun terrace. The largest of these is the open-sided living pavilion furnished for total comfort in Balinese style and looks out across the gardens and pool where everyone can meet, eat together and catch up. There is a gym and separate spa hidden in the tropical garden.

A typical day begins with an energizing yoga session to wake up the body for the day ahead, followed by a local fruit and superfood breakfast together around our dining table.
After breakfast you will be picked up for your surf lesson and whisked off to the beach. You will be dropped back in time for lunch, relaxation and a healing massage or spa treatment of your choice.

If you have never been in the water and you are eager to learn to surf, or you are an advanced surfer, you will be sure to learn new skills, insights, and of course share in local knowledge as you travel around this beautiful coastline in search of perfect, uncrowded waves together.
The instructor to pupil ratio is high so your lessons will be personalized to suit your ability, individual needs and to match the daily surf conditions. Soul Vida has a full stock of boards available and all equipment you’ll need.
Yoga can bring about profound change in your physical and mental capacity while preparing the body for long-term health. Yoga is about a healthy lifestyle in a world consumed with chaos. Peace and tranquility can be yours through regular yoga practice and meditation. During your stay, you are welcome to join the daily yoga practice on the stunning yoga terrace overlooking green paddy fields in the early morning or a meditation session before you sleep.
Your yoga instructor will guide you through your practice. Morning classes are usually the more dynamic kind, either Vinyasa and Hatha Flow, designed to wake up the energy. Evening classes include Astanga, Yin, and pranayama breathing sessions and include mediation. Each class has a flow and focus, beginning with a mediative reflection to settle on the moment, to open up the chakras, finding concentration, mindfulness, and inspiration to evolve.

"This place is way off the beaten track. It an awesome find. The first think I need to tell you there is nothing close to you out here. It way out. I would get a rental car and explore the area and find yourself your own beach. The rooms here are nice and very reasonable. The service is top notch. The pool was a little cold."

"Soul Vida was absolutely beautiful, and the perfect de-stress time. "
"Yin Yoga under the stars was amazing, and the fitness was so unique and honestly, a total killer - my abs were appreciative!!"
"Denise, the instructors and her staff are all beautiful woman who so are totally in-tune with Bali life and bring that into the retreat. I will be back, no hesitation."
"P.s the food is ah-mazing!!"
"I was seeking a retreat where I could re-charge, be active and indulge whilst being healthy. Soul Vida ticked every box! "
"The communication with the owner, Denise, was exceptional and the customer service also fantastic. There wasn't anything I could fault with this retreat."
"My room was just incredible. It had an amazing view, bed was super comfy and it was sweet to find rose petals on the bed. The villa as a whole is boutique, comfortable yet luxurious and a place that feels like home very quickly. "
"I opted for the surf yoga package and LOVED it. "
"My goal was to improve my surfing and with my personal one-on-one surf coach (as the other girls opted for the surf/fitness package) I increased my skill level from beginner to intermediate. So this retreat is great for newbies wanting to learn surfing but also for you surfer girls out there serious about your surfing. This retreat is personalized to what you need. "
"The food...OMG. It was incredible. So delicious and healthy. The chefs are incredible...wish I could take them home with me to cook three meals a day ;)"
"Also, the location is great. I really loved Canggu and think it is the best part of Bali to visit as someone that loves to surf but also get to know the locals and what is happening in the area. Plenty of amazing shops to check out. It reminds me of Melbourne a little...very hip and cool but still very much feel like you are in Bali."
"What are you waiting for? Book this place...you will love it too!"
"I loved the retreat at Soul Vida! It is in a remarkably beautiful villa in the middle of the rice paddies, peaceful and quiet but close to everything in Canggu. Everything is done with full heart. "
"We had Vinasa Yoga in the morning and Yin Yoga in the evening with amazing teachers who are really experienced and inspiring. There are two yoga shalas - one upstairs with a view of the paddies, and another one right next two the pool. We also could attend fitness classes with the lovely teacher Jess. That was so much fun. There were spa treatments in the afternoon where everyone could choose treatments for their specific needs. And the food was healthy and so yummy."
"As the groups are small it feels very cosy and personal. The intention of lovely owner, Denise, and the teachers was clearly to make everyone feel at home and at ease. I felt so well looked after, relaxed and far away from everything. "
"The setting is beautiful (flowers and candles everywhere), the people are super friendly and helpful, the yoga and fitness classes are professional and fun. It is a retreat on a very high level and it just shows you Bali from it’s best side. It has been a wonderful experience!"
"Definitely recommend and I look forward to returning."
"This is the perfect getaway. Every day has a schedule, but you choose yourself what you want to participate in. It was a good balance of training and relaxation, I participated in all the classes and felt great after each day. A typical day starts with a yoga session, led by talented Charlotte while the sun rises. Following is a balanced breakfast, healthy but still a taste explosion. After the breakfast has been digested its time for a fitness session with Jess, a trainer who really knows how to train the female body! The training was different from the "normal" fitness class, with "only" body weight and flexibility work, but it had me sore for days! In the afternoon there are spa treatments, leaving you relaxed and working magically on the soreness from the training. At sunset there is time for Yin Yoga, surrounded by candles and an amazing terrace view. Finishing off the nights with a dinner by excellent chefs together with the rest of the group. The owner of the retreat, Denise, makes you feel so welcome and at home. The villa is absolutely stunning and you´re left feeling a healthier version of yourself (at least how I felt). I will absolutely come back, and I´ll be sure to bring some of my girlfriends next time! I must say going alone was great as well, as we had a great group of girls and I made lots of new acquaintances. I highly recommend this place!"
"What a wonderful experience this was! Such a relaxing time, meeting people, the staff was very welcoming and helpful, and lots of amazing yoga. Loved it! Thank you so much and I hope to come back soon."
