Xanadu Surf & Yoga is not only two beautiful locations and well-curated surf & yoga programmes, but first and foremost Xanadu is the people who are part of it and create a memorable surf & yoga experience at the highest level. We have been born out of passion for yoga, surfing and good food. We want to share the love and good vibes with our guests. And quite frankly we’ve got a hidden agenda too – we ourselves want to meet like-minded people travelling to this beautiful part of the world.
Xanadu, the name, has been taken from the Kubla Khan poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge and refers to a magical place in a hidden land – couldn’t be more appropriate. So don’t wait and come visit this hidden oasis in the south of Lombok.
Meet Our Team
We’re blessed with a big team made up of passionate people who are here to make your holiday extra special. Below are just a few of them – the rest you’ll meet when you finally visit.
A super social Chilean who is all about ensuring your Xanadu Retreat experience is memorable. He initially came to Xanadu as a guest, fell in love with Lombok (and us) and decided to swap his law career for island life and daily longboarding, which sounds like a pretty good tradeoff if you ask us.
Senior Surf Coach
Duggy has been with Xanadu almost from the beginning. He’s the Senior Surf Coach at Xanadu Village making sure all the surf adventures run smoothly. Patient, knowledgeable and lots of fun to be around.
Yoga & Ice Bath Master
Alvin is the brains behind the yoga and ice bath immersion programmes. And as a yogi and surfer, he’s managed to create a very special yoga experience for our guests. We love the unique way he connects with guests. Originally from the Philippines, he quit the corporate grind for a slow-paced life in Lombok.
Kayan oversees the surf programme at Xanadu. Together with the rest of the surf team, he ensures that you receive valuable feedback and guidance that improves your surfing. Kayan comes to us from the Canary Islands and previously worked at multiple surf camps in Sri Lanka. He was on his way to Australia when we met him but we’ve managed to convince him to ditch that plan and join our team.
Gigih, originally from Lombok, ensures that everything at Xanadu Village runs smoothly. He joined our team as a housekeeper during Covid and has worked his way up to the Assistant Manager role. He’s incredibly attentive and looks after Xanadu with a lot of passion.
If you’re staying at Xanadu Retreat, you’ll surely get to know Samsul. He’s a can-do man who loves to crack a joke or two with the guests. And he used to make the best coffee in town as a barista. Now he’s stepped away from the bar to become an Assistant Manager at Xanadu Retreat and we couldn’t be happier.
Senior Surf Coach
Gong has been with Xanadu pretty much from the start. He’s the head of our surf coach family – well respected, patient and committed. A Kuta native, he knows all the best spots in the area and is happy to share his surf break secrets. After hours, he’s a family man who loves spending time with his wife and two kids.
Both Xanadu Surf & Yoga hotels are located in Kuta – a quaint laid-back town in the south of Lombok sourrounded by many great surf spots perfect for beginner and intermediate surfers, including longboarders.
