SOME QUICK QUESTIONS
CAN I COOK MY OWN FOOD AT THE SURF CAMP?
No, you won’t be able to use the Swell kitchen at any time for preparation of food, nor use our fridge to store your food. Neither do our rooms have fridges. If you wish to self-cater, Swell is not the right place for you. But, if you want a great set-me-up-for-surfing breakfast prepared daily and a delicious, homemade dinner on selected nights, then do choose us. When we are not cooking at Swell, we are within a few meters walk of a whole bunch of other delightful restaurants. You can even enjoy a fresh fish BBQ right on the beach at Bingin; it’s an evening not to be missed!
DO YOU HAVE A BAR?
Yes, there is a bar at Swell and someone to serve you a variety of drinks, including Bintang (the famous Bali beer), delicious, healthy smoothies, fresh juices and sodas. Drinks will be added to your account at the end of your stay.
We have a plastic-free policy at the Swell, so we limit our sale of drinks to those which can be re-cycled.
I’M VEGETARIAN, VEGAN, GLUTEN-INTOLERANT, CAN YOU HANDLE MY DIET?
Whilst we do not have a team of chefs to cater to every whim, we are well used to catering for vegetarians, vegans and people with other food intolerances. We have a wide variety of ingredients to choose from and will always try our very best to cater for your needs if you tell us in advance, so just send us an email to see what your options are. We are unable to buy specialist gluten-free ingredients but we are sure you will not go hungry!
HOW DO I BOOK A HOLIDAY WITH YOU?
Booking a surf trip with Swell Bali is easy:
Check out the various pages on our website, which have a lot of information about what we offer at our surf hotel.
That way, you know exactly what you can expect when you book a trip with us.
We want happy clients at Swell so we try to be as honest and transparent about what we offer. We don’t take photos which make our rooms look bigger or pretend we are something we are not. We don’t make promises we can’t keep because we know how important your surf holiday is for you. If anything is not clear on our website, do send us an email so we can help you make the right decision.
We hope we can welcome you to our place!

- Check the different packages on offer on the pricing page to get an idea whether what we offer suits your needs and your budget. We know we are not cheap and we make no excuses for that. Like all things in life, you get what you pay for and Swell may not suit your pocket; it’s OK, we understand and we wish you a great surf vacation wherever you end up staying. We offer private rooms and also a shared room as a cheaper option
- If our place looks right for you, send us a quick message with your dates and we get back to you in a few hours to tell you if we have space in the week you asked for (or we can suggest alternative dates). We will also send you a price quote with exactly what’s included in our surf holiday packages.
- To reserve your stay at Swell we will require a non-refundable deposit so we can confirm your stay and save one of our rooms for you. If you want the option to cancel, then only book last-minute, when you know you are coming. Payment is done via 128-bit secured external credit card processor (alternative payment options are available, such as PayPal).
How to book:
If you are staying 5 nights or longer, your stay will include an airport transfer from Denpasar to Swell or from Swell to Denpasar. Once payment is made, we will send you a link to an arrivals form you fill out, so we can make sure our driver picks you up from the airport for a hassle-free start of your surfing vacation. If you are staying less than 5 nights, we can still arrange your collection or drop off from the airport with one of our special drivers; just ask us to include it in your quotation.
If you have any questions, we are here to answer those for you; we want to make sure that you are booking the right surf holiday (even if that means you not staying with us).
When you send us an email we get back to you very quickly (that’s a promise).
Swell does not work with any travel agents, or external sites for our bookings, so all reservations are handled by Clare, the co-owner of Swell.
