Redefining wellness travel for women, Surf Haven Bali announce their rebranding to ‘Escape Haven’ this month, whilst also announcing 2 new ‘Refresh & Renew’ packages and a new Byron Bay, Australia location (both launched May, 2013) 

4The original ‘Surf Haven’ concept was launched in 2010 by Janine Hall – who quit her International marketing career (Selfridges/Arcadia Group) after suffering ‘career burn-out’ and instead decided to develop a retreat concept that offered women who had experienced the same fate with first class personalised surf & yoga retreat weeks in Bali.  Designed to deliver the ultimate escape experience for women in need of rejuvenation for mind, body and spirit – the retreats offer a ‘healthily indulgent’ balance of energising active experiences coupled with deep relaxation, alongside a menu of delicious spa cuisine.

Since the inaugral opening in upmarket Seminyak Bali, Escape Haven has since launched Australia’s first and only, all-women’s luxury active spa retreat in Byron Bay (May 2013). Redefining wellness travel for women, the Australian Balinese-inspired beachfront retreat is nestled in Australian rainforest and made up of a series of pavilions;

which open onto nature for the definitive answer to luxury and relaxation. Guests can enjoy the song of the Kookaburra by day and be lulled to sleep by the sound of rolling waves at night – with the picturesque white sand beach of ‘Broken Head’ located just a stone’s throw away with its own surf break right outside.
