Overview

Feeling the call to go on a luxurious trip through self awareness, surfing, connecting to your heart space & gaining more clarity towards your purpose and inner truth? Treat Yourself and let us guide you through 7 wholesome days focussing just on yourself and your spiritual and physical wellbeing. Immersing yourself in a luxury boutique stay, tucked away from the noises of daily life. Floating You  invites you to a holistic experience through waves and wisdom. Supported by the swells of the Indian Ocean, your own beautiful being and a few souls that are here to guide you along the way in Lombok, Bali’s stunning neighbouring island in Indonesia, that is just a 20 min plane ride away. A whole week catching turquoise waves, bath in beautiful bays, take time to listen to the needs of your body, mind and soul. Allow yourself to connect to the present moment, away from all the noise. Let yourself sink deeper through Yoga practices, feel your full heart through the warm tones of sound healing and just BE. We are not just a ‘surf camp’ – imagine a place that introduces you ‘surfing’ as a beautiful tool that makes you feel more alive than ever before. Surfing, not just a physical activity, but also an extra ordinary way to connect to the elements of our earth - providing us with new perspectives to stimulate peace, happiness and liveliness.

HIGHLIGHTS

THE SURF

THE SURF

We are not just a ‘surf camp’ – imagine a place that introduces you ‘surfing’ as a beautiful tool that makes you feel more alive than ever before. A practice, that lets you connect to Mother Nature on so many unexpected levels. Eventually see sunrise and sunsets from the surf spot, energetic mountains surrounding you. If you are lucky enough, turtles will come say hi to you while you wait to catch a wave. If you are starting your surfing journey with us or continuing it - the waves in Lombok are suitable for all levels. Surfing, not just a physical activity, but also an extra ordinary way to connect to the elements of our earth - providing us with new perspectives to stimulate peace, happiness and liveliness. Our surf school partner, LOMBOK LOGS, has been around Lombok’s south coast for all his life. Wave knowledge, support, in-water coaching (1:2), theory lessons and drone video surf analysis is waiting for you.

Best Surf and Yoga Retreat ever - 5 STARS! First of all I have to say that I’ve had my fair share of retreats. All over the world but also in bali. I‘ve been to yoga, surf, and yoga and surf retreats in Indonesia. And honestly hands down this is by far the best retreat I’ve been to. It really has a beautiful holistic approach without sacrificing anything. The surf lessons are absolutely amazing! The beaches and the waves they bring you to are out of this world. So much better than the crowded waves in bali! Perfect for beginners as well. Mostly one on one coaching. And then you have the holistic yoga approach. Riany, the founder, manages to bring together her passions of yoga, healing and surfing in the most natural and complimenting way. She creates a beautiful and safe space for everyone to feel welcome and be able to grow and let go. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to yoga or surfing or if you’re a pro. This is the retreat for you! And I didn’t even talk about the beautiful accommodation and the incredibly tasty food. Don’t hesitate and treat yourself to this beautiful experience. You’ll meet amazing people and have the best time in beautiful nature no matter which one of the retreat spots you pick. Riany is an absolute perfectionist and she makes sure to give you the best experience possible. My absolute highlights were the 1:1 surf lessons, the video analysis afterwards, the sound bath, amazing healing and self awareness exercises and incredible yoga teacher and not to forget the photo shooting to boost your confidence! The value for money is really through the roof with this retreat and you can feel the love and passion that goes into carefully creating every single experience along the way.

Get ready to change your life - 5 STARS! My friend and I went to the Floating You retreat in Sri Lanka and it was the best experience of our lives! It was our first retreat ever and it exceeded our expectations to say the very least. Riany is such a beautiful person inside and out, from the moment you meet her you’ll feel right at home. She clearly has a genuine love and care for everyone she meets and made us feel comfortable from the very start. I’d had a tough time on the first day dealing with my own personal issues, but Riany was there with me to help me through it, spending some time with me on the shore, take me through some breath work and reminding of all the positive affirmations and words of gratitude I’d forgotten to tell myself each day. It really changed my entire mindset from then on and I ended up having so much fun and found a greater meaning in life through surf and just learning to let go. The holistic activities; daily yoga, value exercise, mindful painting, cacao ceremony, sound healing in nature were also pivotal in helping me on my healing journey. We were also so happy to have met everyone else from our group on the retreat! The vibe and energy was beautiful each and every day. Our surf instructor Liam was also amazing and really took the time to advise us during our surf analysis and keep us safe out in the water. The location and food was beyond expectations as well! The communal meals we had really brought us all together and made us feel right at home. All in all, I have absolutely no regrets joining this retreat and for anyone who is hesitant, don’t be. This retreat will change your life❤️

The most eye Opening Experience I ever had - 5 STARS! I joined „Floating You“ in Lombok and it was just the most amazing experience. The schedule was packed with Yoga, Surf Lessons, Personal Development Workshops and Healing Sessions. Within a week I grew so much and in so many aspects that it would go beyond the scope to go into detail, but I truly feel like I returned home as a better version of myself. Riany did an amazing job organizing everything and above all managing to bring a group of strangers together and leading them to built a true connection within the shortest amount of time. I can fully recommend this retreat and I hope to join again someday.

Early Birds

Waking up hearing tropical birds singing. Gently starting to move your body & set your mind for a beautiful day ahead with a healing Yoga exercise in our in-house Bamboo Shala (Including breathing exercises and meditation to sink deeper into the magic of your true self). After this you are asked to indulge in our healthy and fresh á la carte breakfast followed by getting ready for our daily surf with the best instructors in town.

ScreenShot20240125at12.25.16

Late Mornings

The group is split into beginners and intermediate surfers to guarantee the most valuable experience for everyone. Every day our instructors check the wave conditions to make sure we're going to the perfect break for the time & day. Fun fact: Most of the time we'll be taking a local fisherboat to take us out to the surf! Salty & happy you can enjoy a quick post-surf hydrating cold coconut on the beach before packing up and getting back to our home for the week: Here you have time to shower, unwind, fuel yourself with a lunch of your choice & maybe book a massage or try a healing session with Akim. 

ScreenShot20240125at12.14.45

The Afternoons

In the afternoon we gather for either a guided meditation, a sunset hike, a self development exercise, a healing ritual with sacred sound, a sharing circle, a painting session or similar. There will be days with  Surf Analysis to implement your learning for the next days. See yourself on the board and evaluate what you can do better tomorrow. To round up this blissfull day in paradise  the best restaurants in town prepared a delicious, feasty dinner for us. Maybe adding a quick journaling moment for one or the other before your well deserved rest.

FAQs

FLIGHTS:


The quickest option is to fly from Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) in Bali to Lombok International Airport (LOP). The flight duration is approximately 35 min. From Lombok International Airport to Kuta Lombok is around a 20-30 minute drive. Flight prices generally range from 50 EUR to 80 EUR one way. 


FERRY & DRIVING:


Another option is to take a ferry from Padang Bai in Bali to Lembar Port in Lombok. The ferry ride takes around 5-6 hours. Once you arrive at Lembar Port, Kuta, Lombok, is approximately 1 hour away by car. Ferry ticket prices depend on whether you bring a vehicle or travel as a foot passenger. Prices typically range from 5 EUR to 10 EUR for foot passengers and higher for vehicles.


SPEEDBOAT:


Several speedboat operators offer direct transfers from Bali (Padang Bai or Serangan) to Kuta, Lombok. The journey takes around 2 hours, depending on sea conditions. Speedboat tickets usually cost between 25 to 50 EUR per person, one way.

The retreat program usually kicks off around 2PM, depending on everyone's arrival. Checkin is between 1 and 2 PM. There are many flights from Bali or Jakarta in the morning. Just pick the one that suits you best. You can always arrive earlier and enjoy a snack or coffee on the lazy sunbeds by the pool until your room is ready!

The last  official good bye hug will probably be around 11am. A lot of people extend a day or 2 to let everything sink and enjoy some integration time. If you need to leave the same day its best to book a flight between 1and 4 pm from Lombok to Bali or to Jakarta!

100% !! Floating You in Lombok is a beginner friendly retreat. We learn everything together from scratch. Your first ever surfs will be on a long sandy beach, with a small beach break where you only learn to 'pop up' and practice your stands. Easy & fun!

Yes! We split the groups into Beginners and Intermediate, so that everyone gets to progress in their own best way. Lombok has waves for all levels. At the end of the week we eventually join both together - best times!

We usually use tiket.com to book domestic Indonesian flights. In case you want to use your own board, we suggest to book Garuda airways or City Link, as they include the transportation of the board in their price and are more reliable airlines. (Different for longboards! If you wish to bring your own longboard from Bali, you have to travel via Sea or fly into Lombok from Jakarta)  

To bring boards via ferry or speedboat is the easiest & safest.

Absolutely ! Indonesia is one of the safest places to be travelling solo. Everyone is helpful, nice, caring and loving. Transport from place to place is also very easy (car's, busses, ferries, speedboats, gojek).
