Our surfing week adventure was amazing! The villa was absolutely beautiful. Our guides were all fantastic. The people of Bali could not have been more kind. I would go again in a heartbeat. The sites we visited were breathtaking.
This is the first retreat that I tried and it will be hard to top it up :) I went with my sister and we were both in need of a relaxing time and this what we had. We are both beginners for surfing and yoga and we had a fantastic time at both. Elie (the yoga instructor) was amazing and always tailored the class to our needs and Deduk (the surf instructor) managed to get us standing up on the board by the first day (no small feat). We stayed in a beautiful villa with our own swimming pool and were so well taken care of by the staff. Sarah made sure that we had a perfect week :) And I should not forget Maud, who not also took great pictures of our surfing but also was so incredibly knowledgeable of the Bali culture. It was an amazing week and a huge thank you to all the MBS Surf Bali team, we will be back and very soon! :)
I'm so grateful to have experienced another impressive retreat with MBS. I booked the basics package and had exciting surf lessons with Deduk and found renewal through my yoga practice. The villa was gorgeous with beautifully appointed details and the meals were healthy and delicious. There was a nice flow to the week's itinerary leaving enough time to relax, discover the surroundings and indulge in amazing spa treatments. We had one day off and enjoyed an incredible trip to a few beaches in southern Bali. The whole team at MBS make you feel comfortable and are very supportive. Nothing is too much trouble. They proved again that their genuine caring nature and love for what they do keeps this retreat experience magical. Go and have an amazing time! You will come back with a new found confidence and feel more balanced and inspired!

I had the most amazing time with MBS. We were put up in the most beautiful villa, and everything we wanted or didn't even know we wanted was organized to perfection for us. All we had to do was relax and enjoy our time. Our surf instruction was excellent, I had no experience and was supported and had a ton of fun. Every interaction we had was focused around ensuring that we were having a fabulous time. Do a week with MBS, you will absolutely love it...I can't wait to go back.
I had an absolutely fantastic week with MBS in Bali. Myself and a friend opted for the Soul Surf Basic and even though it was the 'budget' option, at no point did Sarah or the rest of the team make us feel like anything less than VIP. We stayed at a beautiful, super clean, private villa in Seminyak that felt like an oasis. Our breakfasts, as well as our two included dinners, were delicious. They arranged a relaxing and engaging tour for us on our day off. The surfing was so much fun. We were both beginners, but were both able to stand up on the board by the end of the first lesson and I was able to catch a green wave on my own by the end of the week. We got to try surfing at a variety of beaches, with different conditions. Surfing was a new challenge for me, but with Deduk's help it was such a wonderful, positive experience. He's patient, gentle and has a great sense of humour. After the week I felt so much more confident and comfortable in the water and on the board. Maud was such a delight to have, as our photographer and to help us feel comfortable both in and out of the water. Our yoga was such a great complement to surf and the instructor (I don't want to spell her name incorrectly so I won't even try) was also a surfer so she was able to commiserate with our sore muscles and she geared the classes to help with our surfing. She was so friendly and funny and as someone who practices yoga regularly, she was a great knowledgeable instructor. Everyone took such good care of us, I have never stayed anywhere with such attention to detail and amazing customer service. Sarah even helped us plan our itinerary for when we left MBS, with great suggestions for day trips, restaurants and activities - she even booked an activity for us the day before to save us the effort. The entire week was such a great experience, with genuinely passionate and caring people who do an amazing job. I absolutely recommend MBS and am already scheming of ways to come back for another week of surf, yoga and fun.
