"Relaxing in paradise at Pelan Pelan"
I loved my week-long stay at Pelan Pelan! The people were fantastic, the surfing and yoga was suited to my level (beginner for both), and the friends I met from around the world were a lot of fun to spend time with. Everything was organised but there was still plenty of time to relax and chill by the pool throughout the day.

"I was impressed by the 3 instrutors approach and kindness"
It is a wonderful setting and the pool was ideal. The management were hands on and the area being a step removed made for a peaceful setting.

"Thank you for the great time, PelanPelan Family!"
Great hospitality, excellent Team & lovely place!
Thank you, Emma & Putu for great relaxing time and surfing lessons! Everything is organized very well and definitely worth visiting!
It was the perfect holiday within a friendly and relaxing ambience. Its a little outside of Changgu, but they have scooters for free which you can use to go anywhere - maybe thats also part of the beauty, to be in the middle of ricefields, it feels much more autenthic. At the time there were mostly female single travelers, a testament to how safe the place feels. Every morning starts by going surfing with cool and capable instructors, spit into levels - it almost feels like private lessons. Then, a home cooked and healthy lunch is followed by afternoon yoga sessions in a little pagoda in the garden, very meditative. Absolutely reccomendable, and we are looking forward to be back!
I went to Pelan Pelan three times last year and I just love the place, it feels like my second home. Emma, Putu and their staff are just so loving and caring. I would highly recommend to stay with them in Canggu, you will just fall in love with the lovely surroundings and wonderful people and will want to go back for sure! Lots of love for these beautiful people. Keep up the good work!

This is truly a magical place. Emma, Putu and the whole staff at Pelan Pelan have effortlessly created something very unique and special in their little corner of Bali. There is no detail missed when it comes to creating your most relaxed and fun vacation here. The rooms are spotless and taken good care of everyday with housecleaning. The meals are a perfect combination of local cuisine, variety as well as offering a healthy and nutritious diet. All the staff as well as the owners create a relaxed but homey ambiance so you can truly sink into that feeling of just no worries. But they never lose sight of
their guests needs at the same time and will not hesitate to help you
with anything you might need assistance with. From calling cabs,
offering local KOA, ordering take-out or just sharing jokes and
pouring wine, they add so much more to the experience. The activities
and packages offered at Pelan Pelan are of high quality and will make
even the most active traveler feel satisfied with their vacation. And
with this perfectly concocted ambiance you and the other guests
staying at Pelan Pelan will share together truly a once in a lifetime
experience. I will always remember my time in Bali fondly and I give
credit to Pelan Pelan for making that happen. Thank you Emma, Putu and
the rest of the staff at Pelan Pelan, I will be back soon :)

I just got back from the most fulfilling trip ever at Pelan Pelan: excellent yoga, incredible people from all over the world, friendly atmosphere, fantastic Balinese food, great rooms/bathrooms, awesome location in the middle of the rice fields in the magical town of Canggu. The purpose of my trip was to disconnect, relax and come back refreshed - which is exactly what happened after staying there! DEFINITELY going back - Emma, Putu and everyone I met there from staff to guests became family, and made me feel at home! Pelan pelan means take it easy.. and I for sure learnt how to do so after that trip :)

I spent one week at Pelan Pelan and I wish I could have stayed longer! Everything about this place is perfect, but most importantly the people who run it and the guests are the friendliest people you can imagine. I am so grateful to have met so many amazing humans there and I am sure some of those friendships will last a lifetime!
Emma and Putu, the hosts are always there to help and to have a chat, they even helped me organise a trip to an island nearby. The room was very clean, bright and spacious and is situated in a paradise-like, lush green garden.
In terms of activities I can absolutely recommend doing the surf and yoga package, I had the best time on the board and on the mat! All of the teachers I had are very friendly, they speak English very well and they make sure you get the most out of the experience while always being up for a good laugh and a chat!
One of the highlights of Pelan Pelan is without doubt the homemade Balinese food that is freshly prepared every day for Lunch. Simply incredible!
Never in my life have I felt so welcome and at home as I did at Pelan Pelan, it was definitely a once in a lifetime experience (until I return, which I will do 100%!)
Thanks to the staff of Pelan Pelan, the three cute dogs and the fantastic people I met there for making this holiday so wonderful! See you next time :)
