We would love to show you the unique Balinese culture, eat it’s traditional food and experience the beautiful Balinese ‘Pelan Pelan’ mentality. 'Pelan Pelan' means 'Take it easy' and you'll experience that everything is more relaxed here in Bali than you are used to back home.

Pelan Pelan is also nice to hang out if you’re looking for a relaxation holiday with yoga an massages, if you're not that much into surfing. Our retreat features 8 rooms, situated around a large outdoor swimming pool in the middle of a stunning Balinese garden on the river. It has plenty of peaceful spaces where you can relax, enjoy a massage at our outdoor massage room, sip from a fresh juice, play with our dogs, or meet other people from around the world. Different professional teachers give our yoga classes and meditation sessions in our yoga sala down by the river. Our surf & yoga retreat is separated in 3 levels with the upper level containing a building with 4 single rooms, a middle one with the common area, pool and two rooms.
