CangguFit FAQs

We want your fitness retreat to be one to remember and we’ve thought through every little detail for the perfect Bali fitness holiday. This FAQ section will hopefully answer all of your questions, but don’t hesitate to contact us at canggufit@gmail.com if you would like to ask us anything.

Arrival

I am arriving the days before the retreat starts, how do I get to you?

We provide courtesy retreat transfers from Bali International Airport to VillaRa Canggu on day 1 and day 8.  If you would like to come to the retreat on your own we will provide a map and detailed directions to VillaRa Canggu and you can take a taxi. If you would like a private car transfer, please email us with your requirements and we will advise if there will be an additional cost.

If you are arriving the day before the retreat begins you will need to book pre-retreat accommodation. This can be done through your local travel agent when booking your flights or through an online booking system such as booking.com or direct with your chosen hotel.

When do you pick up from the airport? How do I know it’s you?

Check in starts at 12pm on the day of the retreat and we provide airport transfers from 11 am. Our driver and/or retreat host will be waiting for you with a name sign outside the International Arrival Terminal.
Once your booking has been confirmed and we have received your flight details you will receive a complete arrival information package with further details.

Should I pick a flight arriving into Bali mid-morning, mid-afternoon or evening?

It is best to book a flight arriving in Bali mid-morning or mid-afternoon. This allows for flight delays and gives you plenty of time to relax upon arrival at VillaRa before the welcome dinner. We suggest you avoid flights arriving after 3pm so you do not miss the welcome dinner. If the only available flight is to arrive late in the evening we strongly suggest you consider arriving the day/night prior to the start of the retreat and booking an extra nights accommodation (at your own expense).

Retreat Dates

Do you offer weekend stays? Can I do a package just for 4 nights?

Due to the popularity and the small-group exclusiveness of our retreats we currently only offer packages for 8 days/7 nights. Our retreat packages are designed to be enjoyed as a whole with each day being a carefully planned balance between your chosen organised activities and free time. Having each retreat run for 8 days allows time to interact with the other participants who are on the retreat with you – resulting in close bonds with those who have shared the experience.

I was wondering if there were certain dates that the retreat keeps, or can you arrive on any date? 

Our retreats run for 8 days/7 nights and commence on a Saturday and finish on a Saturday. This is so each group can come together and take the retreat journey as a whole. Please email us at canggufit@gmail.com if your group would like to request an alternative start day. This will be subject to availability at the time of reservation.

What’s Included?

Your ultimate fitness retreat includes airport transfers, breakfast each day, exclusive access to some of the best fitness facilities and trainers in Bali, amongst lots of other excursions and activities.

What’s excluded?

Why aren’t all meals included?

Canggu and the surrounding suburbs are a foodie’s heaven! Incredible cafes and restaurants abound. CangguFit will organise or suggest group lunch and dinner options and the host will accompany you to the group’s choice.

In keeping with our fit retreat theme, you will be offered a selection of seasonal fruits, yoghurts, nuts, seeds, granola, toast (gluten free available), spreads, tea, coffee and fresh juices.

 

Booking & Payment

How much does a CangguFit retreat cost?

Our CangguFit retreat package costs $1799 (AUD) per person, and each retreat is for six to eight guests. We have four rooms available in our exclusive villa, with two guests per room in either a superking size bed, or two king singles. All bathrooms include double sinks and wardrobes to ensure you have maximum comfort and space during your stay. The CangguFit retreat package includes all activities included in our itinerary.

How does the booking process work? Do we have to pay the full amount when we book?

A non-refundable deposit of AU$500 (or equivalent) is required at the time of reservation. Full payment is due no more than 30 days prior to the start of the retreat. We take payment via www.transferwise.com. Once your deposit is paid, you can elect to make incremental payments, via www.transferwise.com, until you have paid in full (at least 30 days prior to the start of the retreat). Whenever you make a payment, please email a copy of your receipt to canggufit@gmail.com.

Do I need to book my own flights or are they included in the package?

You need to book your own flights. Flights and airport taxes are not included in the package. We suggest you use a reputable travel agent to make flight bookings. CangguFit cannot assist with flight bookings, changes, airline reschedules or cancellations.

location

What is your location?

CangguFit is located in Batu Bolong, Canggu. We are surrounded by cafes, restaurants, bars, beach clubs, day spas, boutiques and home-wares stores.

Are you located near the beach, if I want to swim?

Batu Bolong Beach is a lazy 15-minute stroll away.

What is your accommodation like?

Our modern style villa is full of fanciful details. With our own onsite functional fitness gym and pool, VillaRa is truly a place where you can smash out another sweaty workout or relax and retreat. There are many communal areas that you can make your own private space for meditation or enjoy a chat with a new friend.

All bedrooms are fully air-conditioned, while the open and airy living spaces spill seamlessly into the colourful foliage of the surrounding gardens and capture the balmy Indian Ocean breeze.

Is there a laundry service at CangguFit?

Nyoman & Wayan are the housekeepers at VillaRa. They run the laundry and will wash, dry and fold your clothes for you. There is a small fee of IDR10,000 per kg and this will be billed to your room prior to checkout.

Is my room serviced at CangguFit?

Yes, Nyoman & Wayan will service your room daily.

Do I need to bring a beach towel?

We supply beach towels for use around our villa pool. Please pack your own beach towel to use down at the beach.

The Retreat

What does a typical day look like? 

We start our day with a gentle stretching class combining yoga and mobility positions, followed by a delicious breakfast. Around 8am we will depart, as a group, to our first fit class at various facilities around Canggu and surrounds. On included activity days, such as cycling through the rice paddies, you will be collected by a group and transferred to the tour departure point. If lunch is not included in the tour, we will suggest a nice café/restaurant to have lunch in as a group. In your free time you are welcome to enjoy pampering day spa treatments, relax by the pool, head down to one of the many beach clubs in Canggu, book and optional extra activity/tour or explore the boutique shops in the neighbourhood.

Whilst most dinners are not included, your retreat host will suggest amazing restaurants for the group to dine and will also accompany the group to the chosen restaurant. You can then either stay out for a night-cap or head back to the villa for a cup of chamomile tea or hot chocolate and curl up with a book before a peaceful nights sleep.

Will there be opportunities to just relax and have some ‘me’ time?

Most of our classes/activities are scheduled to take place in the morning so you will have the afternoon free to relax, swim, shop, eat and indulge in day spa therapies.

I’m interested in doing optional/extra activities. Can you suggest options and book them for me?

Yes, we have a list of optional/extra activities for you to choose from. There is a section on the application form for you to nominate your chosen optional/extra activities. If you are not sure what you want to do before arriving at the retreat, no problem, we can make reservations for you when you are here.

How many guests can you have on the retreat?

At the moment we can accommodate 6-8 guests. We keep our retreat sizes small as this allows us to facilitate a magical group experience; and at the same time it also allows us to uncover those special hidden gems each guest needs to make their individual experience blissful.

What is the average age of the retreat guests? 

Most of our guests range between 20 and 60. However, we can assure you that the concept of our retreat attracts like-minded men and women that no matter what age group, background, or body type you belong to, you’ll find yourself among other people who are positive, supportive and fun.
