A Bali Surf Holiday with Swell
Our purpose-built Bali surf resort is right in the heart of the popular surf village of Bingin. Swell has the look and feel of a boutique hotel, but with the relaxed, social vibe you would find in a surf resort or surf camp in Bali.
In designing our surf hotel, our thought was to create the perfect surf resort for solo travellers or sociable couples and friends to get together with other surfers. At the heart of Swell is a big open communal area with sunken sofa/fire pit, pool table, games area, huge dining table, and bar. A Ping Pong table stands at the end of our massive swimming pool and deck.
And the location of Swell? Right in the centre of Bingin; we are a genuinely short walk to the surf, beach and great restaurants. You can surf Bingin, Impossibles & Dreamland without the need of a taxi or scooter!

SWELL BALI BINGIN SURF RESORT
walk to surf
There is no better-located Surf camp in Bali to enjoy so many of the World’s best waves. The Bukit Peninsula is a surfing paradise; Bingin, Impossibles and Dreamland are all a short walk from us. Uluwatu, Padang-Padang and Balangan are a fun, short scooter ride away and Bingin Beach is one of the prettiest beaches in the whole of Bali.

The Swell concept
We started Swell in the Caribbean 10 years ago, and 5000+ happy clients later, we decided that the best place to have another Swell Hotel is in Bali.
We chose Bingin, because it is the coolest little surf town that has something to offer to everyone: surfers and non-surfers will be happy here. Surf, Yoga, Wellness, Healthy food and chill vibes is what Bingin is all about.
You can either contact us , or if you can already see how great our new and purpose built surf resort / surf camp is and want to book your stay, go ahead and use our on-line booking system.
We started our Luxury Surf Camp in the Caribbean 10 years ago. Clients loved the concept of the luxuries of a boutique hotel with the social aspects of a hostel. Swell in the Caribbean has ideal learning to surf conditions for people who have never surfed before. After looking for a location for a second Luxury surf camp, with detours in Mexico and Costa Rica; we finally made it back to Bali after 20 years. Yes some things have changed in Bali, but a few things remained the same: the surf is world class and the locals are still as friendly and smiley as ever.
We looked for a good location in Bali; Seminyak (too busy), Canggu (too busy), finally we made it to Bingin and we realized that it ticks all the boxes: Stunning beach – Awesome surf – A few restaurants, bars and surf shops and lots of local charm.
We decided against opening a ‘Bali Surf Camp‘, instead decided on a boutique surf resort, less focus on the beginning surfers, and more on the intermediate and expert surfers.Swell Bali does not have in house surf instructors, unlike at Swell Surf Camp in the Caribbean.What is the same?
The same good vibe, ideal for solo travelers. The standard of accommodation is also the same: super comfortable rooms, mattresses, linen and very tasty and healthy food.
Bingin is a very cool & quant little Surf, Yoga & fitness town in the SW corner of Bali. Bingin is unique in that it still has a small-town Bali village feel to it. No high rise and massive hotels. The beach is charming with bright white sand. The surf is world-class at Bingin and on the different tides, suitable for beginners, intermediate and experts surfers.
Bingin is fast becoming THE hotspot in Bali for : Surfing, Yoga, Wellness and Healthy Food
A short walk from Swell Bali you will find the world-class wave of Bingin. Bingin is a machine like a left-hander that breaks over reef, however on the higher tides and smaller swells it’s also a great wave for beginners and intermediates. Impossibles is another wave that Swell guests can walk to, without the need for a scooter or taxi. It’s a long left-hander that is suitable for intermediate and expert surfers. For long rides, it’s best on a bigger swell and can easily hold waves up to 4-5 x overhead. On smaller waves, you can still enjoy Impossibles but don’t expect the waves to connect all the way through.
Looking for mellow intermediate waves? Walk to Dreamland and enjoy mellow waves. Dreamland is best on the lower tides.Overall if you want to enjoy the best waves that Bali has to offer, you could not be better located than in Bingin with Swell bali Surf Camp
Hard to say, some weeks are already starting to fill up, whilst other weeks still have a decent amount of space. If you know you want to join us at our Bingin Surf accommodation, it’s best to book as soon as possible to avoid the disappointment of us being fully booked. We are a small place with a max capacity of only 18 people.
No, non-surfers are also very welcome to stay at our Bingin Boutique Hotel. Surfers love Bingin and Swell for its proximity to the beach and the access it gives to a variety of different surf spots within walking distance from us.
But in the last few years, Bingin has also been ‘discovered’ by non-surfers for its stunning white sandy beaches, turquoise water that offer great swimming and snorkeling when the tide is high.
Love your food? You will love the large and ever-expanding choice of restaurants that are in and around Bingin; healthy restaurants that cater to vegans, vegetarians and everyone else that loves healthy and fresh organic food.
