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!!
