About Time: You Discovered the All-Women Surf and Wellness Retreat, BaliBy Francesca Brooking
Wellness retreats have become a big travel trend in 2019 and it’s easy to see why. There’s nothing quite like giving your health and wellbeing a boost against a stunning tropical backdrop. If you’re looking to get in touch with nature, build on your abilities and be inspired to create positive changes in your life then COMO Hotels and Resorts have got the perfect all-women surf and wellness retreat in store.
What: This November, COMO Hotels and Resorts are launching a new retreat to get excited about. COMO Uma Canggu and COMO Shambhala Estate in Bali, Indonesia have teamed up with professional surfer, Sally Fitzgibbons, currently ranked first in the Women’s World Surf League, to launch their first ever all-women surf and wellness retreat. Designed to celebrate women’s strength and ability, The Surf and Wellness Retreat inspires guests on a path towards self-confidence and positive change. Surfers of every level are encouraged to participate, including those who have never picked up a surfboard.
The Lowdown: The retreat’s carefully curated itinerary allows guests to get in touch with nature and their own strength. Running from November 2nd to 9th 2019, the retreat will invite guests to spend four nights at the stunning COMO Uma Canggu followed by three nights at the equally blissful COMO Shambhala Estate. Guests will be taken on a journey from the shores of Bali’s best surf beaches to the peaceful sanctuary of dense jungle and gentle birdsong. Retreat participants will also be treated to COMO Shambhala’s award-winning cuisine and legendary service, as well as a wealth of outdoor, relaxing and spiritual activities on offer.
Ram Hiral, General Manager at COMO Shambhala Estate says: “Having worked in the hospitality industry for over thirty years, I am thrilled to be a part of such a fantastic and innovative brand like COMO Hotels and Resorts and I am excited to help develop our wellness offering to appeal to a wider and more varied audience. The new all women surf and wellness retreat in Bali is the first of many the group are creating for likeminded individuals and groups, looking to be empowered by other females.”
