5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2011

I just loved it, I had such a fantastic time. I would highly reccomend it and would go back there in a heartbeat. The food was delicious, surfing was awesome and yoga was brilliant. Im so glad I took time out for myself, so relaxing, so refreshing, so lifechanging!

As I was traveling alone and such a distance, I was initially a bit nervous but right from the start I felt completely comfortable. I met wonderful people, had amazing new experiences and learned to surf. Janine and Danni ran the retreat with great organization and attention to the little details that made everything perfect. The villa was beautiful and comfortable and the staff were so warm and attentive to all our needs. I absolutely recommend this retreat to anyone wanting to learn to surf or just needing a vacation that is an interesting mix of challenge and relaxation.

After travelling for 5 weeks through South East Asia I finished my travels in Bali with my sister. We booked into Surf Haven/Villa Aliya for the first week. It was awesome right from the start when Danni picked us up! The villa, staff, Janine, Danni & Mandi were all wonderful. The other girls on the group were excellent, great bunch to hang out with, surf with and tell stories. I have lived on beaches for 10years now and heading to Bali to learn to surf was brilliant. The surf school - "double d" were great with all of us - all 7 of us got up on our first surfing lesson!
Janine's/Surf Havens set up, idea, goals etc is such a fantastic experience for anyone out there who wants to take time for themselves, meet new friends, chill in Bali, shop, surf, do some yoga and embrace the culture and love of Bali.

I can't speak highly enough of the week that I spent recently at Surf Haven Bali. I arrived exhausted. I left feeling throughly relaxed and with a new outlook.
The villa is beautiful. The staff at the villa and the operators of the retreat take care of everything. The menu at the villa was delicious and original. The meals out were all in really unique/ special places. The program is full but means that at the end of the week you feel like you have experienced a lot. Not having done yoga or surfed before, after the week I was in love with both which is due in a large part to Mandy and the guys at Double D surf school. A fantastic original holiday option.

Words cannot describe and photos cannot capture the true essence of my experience with Surf Haven Bali.....you really have to see and feel it for yourself.

From the moment you arrive at Villa Sakti a sense of calm and relaxation comes over you and there is a warmth that resonates in the air to calm the excitement and the nerves about the week that lies ahead. The villa is gorgeous, and the villa staff anticipate everything (and their attention to detail is amazing).

This is truly is something that all women should experience. The daily yoga and surfing sessions are empowering and grounding. Mandy is the most amazing yoga instructor and after every session you feel 10 times lighter. The surfing instructors at Double-D really do get everyone standing on a board, they're also patient, fun and a little cheeky at times.....I acquired the nickname Butterfly as that's what my paddling resembled for the first 2 days.

The whole retreat is well organised yet relaxing and it's still at a go-at-your-own-pace kind of holiday if that's what you're looking for. You get to meet like-minded women from around the world and by the end of the week you're like one big family :-)

Janine, Danni, and Mandy really create a memorable experience. There are also lots of little personal touches l that I totally loved - but I won't write them here so you can be surprised when you get to experience them for yourselves.

I would highly recommend Surf Haven......i'm already planning my next one, but this time my partner wants to come too.....luckily there are a couple of Co-Ed retreats in the schedule.

Had a great time, met amazing women and totally escaped the busy world back home.
Plenty to do or if you choose, not to do!
Built up my confidence in the ocean and can actually surf now!!
Yoga was set at a level that I could not only unwind with but also enjoy.
Villa was beautiful and the staff were so wonderful.
A TRIP TO REMEMBER
