Activities, Trips & Tours

Kelapa Retreat & Spa prides itself on being a peaceful haven for those with busy lives. A place for people to rest, relax and be calm in, a space to slow down time – where recovery and discovery of self is possible. Most of our retreat activities aim to maintain tranquillity at the retreat. On special occasions throughout the year we invite local artists to perform traditional Balinese music and dance.

Our guests can participate in daily held yoga classes and walk on the endless empty fine silver-grey beach in both directions. Large infinity pools offer the possibility to swim and float while contemplating nature. Directly opposite the hotel turquoise waves await for body-boarding and surfing. Body boards are freely available for our guests to use whenever they wish. For more advanced surfers, the surf beach of Medewi is a short hop away by car. A twenty minute stroll along the beach to the original fishing village of Pekutatan with its friendly residents is worthy of a visit. The fishermen can also take you on a morning fishing trip, after which our chefs can prepare your catch for dinner!

Bicycles and mopeds are also available for rental. If the hills seem too much of a challenge, we can also drive you and your bikes up into a mountain village so that you can enjoy a leisurely downhill ride back to Kelapa Retreat!

Bali has many attractive and incredible sights and our staff can recommend full and half day tours. Trips and tours include an adventure to the neighboring island of Jawa, in a four wheel drive through unspoiled tropical jungle to climb Volcano Ijen, visits to temples and waterfalls, shopping in the cultural town of Ubud and snorkeling or diving in the northern sanctuary of Menjangan Island.

Shorter trips close to the hotel include mountain bike trips with a guide through local rice fields and a cultural tour of the village to discover the community’s tiny home cottage industries and take in daily village life.
