The Chillhouse in Canggu is exactly that…chilled out. This eclectic surf retreat is snuggled back behind Batu Bolong, up the road from Old Man’s Beach. They offer accommodation, surf lessons, downhill biking, daily yoga classes, as well as a range of healing, meditation and massage services. If you’re coming to Canggu and want a taste of everything this area has to offer, The Chillhouse is the place. The owners started the retreat as a place for friends to come and relax in Bali and it has grown into a family-oriented, communal space for good vibes only. Leave your worries at the door, enjoy a pressed juice at their cafe, read a book by the pool, or schedule a holistic healing session.
The yoga classes, running daily at 7:30am, 9am, and 4:30pm, range from vinyasa flow, hatha, yin, kundalini and SUP (stand up paddle yoga) in their pool. The open air shala is a sweet, rooftop structure with a view of palm trees, Balinese temples and blue skies. Situated at the back of their lush, green garden, you’ll feel like you’re hidden away in the jungle. The classes are open level and all are welcome. The teachers cater to their students’ specific needs and encourage yogis of all kinds to deepen and explore their practice in a safe and supportive environment. On Wednesday evenings, they host a yin class directly followed by a guided, chakra-balancing meditation.
Everything here is done with love, from the vegetarian/vegan friendly menu at their cafe to the beautiful bungalows. If you’re traveling solo or with friends, this is the perfect spot to enjoy and “chill.” All of the services are open to the community so feel free to drop in for a yoga class, a surf lesson or check out their packages that combine the activities that you find appealing.
