Our special story:

Covid-19 has turned the whole world upside down, including ours. We are Putu and Emma, the owners of Pelan Pelan Bali - Surf & Yoga Retreat. Unfortunately since March 2020 we have had to close our Retreat, since tourists are no longer allowed to come to Bali. As Bali's economy fully depends on tourism, the Balinese community has been hit hard. 

Closing down our retreat was a difficult moment, especially with our employees who depend for their income on Pelan Pelan. Our staff is like family to us, and we feel a great responsibility for their wellbeing. During the months of waiting for the airport to reopen for international tourism, we couldn't just sit still. We have been working hard on our new project: Pelan Bali - The shop.

By purchasing from our shop you support the Indonesian communities that handcraft our products. But that is not the only good thing. 100% of the profits will go directly to our Pelan Pelan staff in order to help them feed their families during these difficult times. 

Every item in our webshop is handpicked by us with the greatest care. We only work with local stores and all products are handmade. In this webshop you will find everything you need to create a real Balinese feeling in your home. We also have a beautiful eco-friendly toys- and decoration kids line – the perfect maternity gift. 

Pelan Pelan means 'slowly'. We hope our items will create a little peace in your life during these crazy times.

Xx Putu & Emma
