I had the most incredible time in Lombok at the Xanadu Surf & Yoga retreat! Lombok itself is like a paradise island, completely unspoiled. The Xanadu camp was beautifully relaxing, peaceful, clean and the food was great. However, it was the people who made the experience! As a brand new surfer I was very nervous but the wonderful Ola and Daniella were always on hand to offer words of advice and encouragement. Aret was an incredible coach, who was able to give the most terrified new surfer the confidence to keep trying! I felt like I made the whole team proud when I did well, they really made you feel so comfortable and part of the family. Yoga in the evening was so serene and the perfect end to the day. Both locations where we practiced were stunning and I would love to return. This was my first solo trip and I was so lucky to end up sharing the experience with an amazing group of people from all over the world! It was a thrilling experience and I look forward to returning, as soon as we’re all allowed to travel again!!
Amazing Amazing Amazing!
I was doing some solo traveling in Lombok and was not sure what I had signed up for when booking at Xanadu, but I could not have been happier with my decision! This was one of the most amazing / unique places I have ever stayed in. Facilities are beautiful, clean, and cozy. Felt like i was staying with friends. Can not recommend this place more!
Life at its best
We had a very nice stay. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. The garden and the pool are quite nice too. The hotel has a great location and it’s next to the main street where you will find nice bars and restaurants. Nice choice of boards too. The surf instructors were very helpful and there are lots of spots around for different levels. The yoga lessons were provided by great yoga instructors and in amazing locations. I definitely would go back.
Amazing stay at Xanadu
Our stay at Xanadu was absolutely amazing!
What makes Xanadu really special is the feeling of being part of a community.
Starting from the breakfast, you can share with the staff and the other guests different moments during the day, going surfing all together, chilling in the pool and ending up with a spectacular yoga session on the terrace under the stars.
The staff is so friendly and very careful to make you feel like at home.
Thanks to the good taste of Ola, the owner, you will enjoy the good vibes of the camp and the beautiful and relaxing bedrooms gathered around the garden and the pool.
If you have some special request don’t worry, just ask Dani! He will be able to find a solution for everything! All of that with the help of Rathen, very good ukulele player by the way! And don’t miss the amazing breakfast prepared by the lovely cook in cooperation with Ola!
About surfing: impossible to do better!
Ozy and You, ex pro surfers and local legends, with the help of Daddy, will makes you enjoy your daily sessions in very safe conditions and at all levels.
These enthusiast guys are constantly present in the water, taking care of teaching you not just the technique, but also the etiquette of the line up and the respect for the others and the ocean.
Four days of surfing, two sessions per day, four different spot, one sunrise session: our level grew up so fast and we enjoyed very much.
And the most important thing: all of that with smiles all around!
I’m really looking forward to coming back to Xanadu.
Definitely recommended! Don’t miss it!
Stayed there for a week and absolutely enjoyed it! The owners are very friendly and you immediately feel like being part of a family. Great surf teachers! 2 min to the Main Street where you find all bars and restaurants. Breakfast is outstanding! Will certainly come back again!
