Bliss out in Bali which is a beloved destination renowned for its enchanting mixture of healing spa treatments, refined artistic culture and unique spiritual heritage, sacred temples with colourful daily ceremonies, friendly locals, warm Indian Ocean waters and endless coastline of tropical beaches.
Spend your week rejuvenating with daily yoga and meditation sessions, plus a selection of Bali’s best cultural and wellness activities. Treat yourself with pool side lounging, laughing with new friends, delicously healthy gourmet meals, unlimited hours of pampering spa treatments.
All great ideas come from humble beginnings and the inspiration for Goddess Retreats came to me one day while basking in the glow of a post-surf sunset with my friends on Legian beach in Bali. We all agreed the best times in our lives have always been when we were simply hanging out in the surf with the “girls”.
Something wonderful happens when women surf. We grow more confident in ourselves, we find new places in our soul, we wash away the cares of the world and see the big picture of our lives and our place within it. Surfing is more than simply a sport; it is a state of mind and way of being that stays with you long after you step out of the ocean.
At the time surf travel in Asia & Australia catered exclusively for men, and with surf schools also being a new concept, it was challenging for women to get introduced to the wonderful sport of surfing in a supportive environment.
I wanted to make the fun and camaraderie I shared with my surf sisters in Bali available for all women to enjoy.
In 2003, I began with a handful of surfboards and a dream I was wildly passionate about. Couple those elements with some supportive friends, and the southern hemisphere’s first women’s solo travel surf retreat was born!
