July 1st, 2019 + Wayfarers Atlas

Whether it’s your 40th, 50th, 60th birthday or beyond, a milestone birthday is a perfect chance to celebrate with family, friends, kids or grandkids (or all of the above!) and create unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime.

It’s a chance to kick back in style, surrounded by incredible people while surfing bucket list-worthy breaks.



Here’s our top 4 reasons why a luxury surf holiday is a perfect way to spend your 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th or memorable milestone celebration:


1. Tropical surf holidays have something for everyone:

Barefoot luxury surf holidays, like the ones we offer at Wayfarers, have a myriad of options for every kind of traveller, from the surfer to the non-surfer to the little Wayfarers.

Whether it’s paddling out to remote reef breaks, diving or snorkelling to your heart’s content or relaxing out on sun loungers by the pool with a chilled cocktail in hand, luxury surf resorts have something for everyone to enjoy.

2. You and your guests feel truly relaxed:

With our busy, hyperconnected lives, there are few chances to unwind and disconnect from the crazy pace of it all. That’s why there’s something about spots like the Maldives, Bali and Fiji that say, “pure paradise”.

These are the sublime places where you don’t check your phone or look at your watch all week. The holidays that are filled with nothing but good vibes, memories and magic. The destinations that give you a sense you’ve fallen off the map into a divine natural haven where the waves never end.

If you’re looking for the kind of holiday where you have quality time with your loved ones, a luxury surf holiday is an ultimate way to reconnect. You’ll have the chance to chat, chill, catch up and be in the moment rather than hurry around a busy city at a wildly frenetic pace trying to do #allthethings.

3. It’s the perfect mix of downtime and adventure:

Want to push yourself out of our comfort zone? Jump on that board and try your hand at surfing. Maybe it’s not just for your partner after all!

And with amazing kid’s clubs and teen adrenaline kicks, roomy villas and suites and blissful spa treatments so good you’ll never want them to end, there’s room enough for everyone. A luxury surf holiday is the ideal combination of chill, surf, sun and play.

You, your family and friends will be happy and tanned and smiling from ear to ear. With your holiday snaps guaranteed to look like they’ve just been ripped out of the pages of Vogue magazine, the memories will live on long after you’ve returned to shore.

How to celebrate your 30th Birthday: CANGGU, BALI

Canggu is definitely the spot to soak up the good time vibes.



On the midnight volcanic sands of Bali’s south coast, COMO Uma Canggu takes a pinch of minimalist Japanese chic and throws it into the fire of Canggu’s laidback surf scene. Expect visionary design, integrated indoor and outdoor spaces, penthouses with private pools, fresh fish crackling on the fire, and Tropicsurf adventures along the achingly cool Canggu coast.

Castaway picnics, a cinema in the sea, jungle exploration, and easy access to the sublime breaks of the Noonu Atoll, Soneva Jani is surely created from the stardust of dreams.
