Women Soulful Surf

This Australia-based female only surf school has been getting women hooked on surfing since 2020. Created by Polish-born yoga and surf loving individual, Helena Richardson, Women Soulful Surf has brought inclusive and supportive vibes to their local line-ups. And now we have them co-hosting women only retreats here at Xanadu. They believe that all women should be able to enjoy the beauty of the ocean through surfing and they’re passionate about helping you discover the magic it has to offer. No matter your level there’s always something new to learn on your surfing journey and there’s no better way to do that than being guided by experienced female coaches in the water and on land.

Xanadu Surf & Yoga Village

Nestled amongst lush green vegetation in a quiet cul-de-sac roughly 5 minute’s walk from the bars, cafes and restaurants of Kuta, this 6-bedroom location is definitely impressive, don’t get us wrong, but it’s more casual cool than upscale fancy. With comfy, cosy bedrooms, an outdoor dining area and pool plus a rooftop yoga space, it’s a modern meets traditional bed and breakfast-style oasis for salty souls and curious travellers.

Why choose the Salty Bliss Retreat experience?

This curated week brings all that we love and believe makes the best surf & yoga Lombok experience. In saying that, we also believe that you know what’s best for you, so feel free to follow the programme or skip activities and do your own thing… it’s your holiday!

Daily surfing

We will explore local breaks, choosing the best spots for conditions and your surf level. The experienced Xanadu instructors will take care of you in the water, while one of Women Soulful Surf female coaches will provide useful tips during surf workshops to improve your technique no matter your level. You will also be able to see yourself riding the waves and get detailed feedback on how to progress during our 2 video analysis sessions – the best way to advance your skills.

The vibes

Salty Bliss Retreats were created by women for women – to come together and learn, experience, and laugh in an inclusive and supportive environment. We believe that there’s nothing more uplifting and encouraging than having other women cheering you on while you’re taking your surfing to the next level! We also want to take the stress of planning your trip off your shoulders, so you can expect our help from booking your flights to choosing the best SPA for your post-surf massage. We will make sure you enjoy dinner at the most delicious restaurants in town and if you’re fancy never miss a Happy Hour 😀

Yoga, movement, journaling

To complement all salty sessions we added intentional practices to our week together. Yoga classes to stretch and restore sore muscles + Movement workshop class to help you understand body mechanics and start building muscle memory that will translate into the water. But it’s not only about the physical fitness – the real surf progression happens when all the elements fall into place! That’s why we included journaling and self-reflection practices, as we know that the mindset is the secret ingredient to make that next step on your surfing journey.

Thoughtfully prepared menu

We’re foodies at heart, which means we take the time to prepare thoughtful meals that both fuel and invigorate you for the day ahead. Everything is beautifully presented, healthy and clean. You can expect creative breakfasts, daily surf snacks as well as a welcome and a farewell dinner. All included in the package. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options available.

Coco Sambal Coffee workshop

The Sasak people of Lombok are artisans who exist in step with Mother Nature. And it’s our privilege to show you their ancestral ways of making coconut oil, sambal, Lombok coffee and more. An all-female collective, this workshop provides a fascinating insight into a culture greatly influenced by their belief in everyday magic. A must-try for anyone curious about the local way of life.
