A Social Surf Holiday

Staying at the #1 Surf Camp in the Dominican Republic is very different to any other hotel; As one of the few purpose-built surf camps in the world, its design centres on the heart of the building; a welcoming meeting place for our guests to quickly get to know their fellow travellers. If you arrive alone, you won't be by yourself once you are at Swell.


Swell is like a warm embrace; you’ll immediately feel at home. It has a uniquely relaxed vibe and by the very nature of their choice to come to Swell, our guests are naturally compatible: This is key to the welcoming and friendly spirit of the camp.

Breakfasts and dinners are shared together around our huge dining table. Guests can chill out on our sofas or over-sized bean bags, shoot some pool, play some cards or watch some movies. You’ll feel like you are part of a really fun, extended family.

If you want some 'me time,' go and relax in one of our hammocks slung beneath the palm trees in our tropical garden.

  • Think of Swell as the anti-surf camp. There’s plenty of surfing, of course, but the similarities to other camps end there. For starters, the rooms are stylish — more boutique hotel than reggae-loving surfer digs. Then there are the legendary breakfasts (omelettes, pancakes and crepes, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and fruit bowls). Structured lessons take place each morning, with an instructor alongside you and the head surf coach watching from shallow water, ready to offer tips between rides.”

    About Swell Surf Camp:

    After living in the Dominican Republic for 8 years and loving the great outdoor watersport lifestyle, Jeroen (from the Netherlands) and Clare (for the UK) decided it was time to share their knowledge of the Dominican Republic all that this stunning country has to offer with visitors from around the world.

    Clare and Jeroen were already familiar with surf camps in many different countries and having had to stay in some very ordinary surf hotel accommodation in their quest for great surfing waves, they knew that there was something missing in the surf camp market; a place which was still social, but offering better quality accommodation, great food, nicer beds, cleaner rooms: A stylish, luxury surf camp. They set about designing the kind of place they would want to stay in themselves.

    So they hired a renowned Swiss architect for one purpose: to come up with the world’s first purpose-built, luxury surf camp & resort.

    Since opening in winter 2009/2010 Swell surf instructors have taught 1000’s of people how to surf in a safe, fun and structured manner. Since opening, Swell has won multiple awards and has 100’s of excellent reviews from happy guests. Swell continues to be one of the top destinations for couples, groups and solo travellers to go to as the #1 luxury surf camp holiday.

    It’s not just surfing on offer at Swell; You can learn to kitesurf, take yoga classes, go horse riding on the beach or in the mountains and enjoy some truly spectacular outdoor adventure trips like canyoning for example.

    Swell offers package surf holidays that take all the hassle out of the planning, with airport transfers, transport to the beach and much more, so all Swell guests can enjoy a stress free holiday right from the start. You just have to book your flights, and they will take care of the rest!

    With great food being such an important part of anyone’s surf vacation, Swell delivers there too; with superb home cooked food at the camp and on the evenings when guests go out to dinner, a large choice of restaurants offering a comprehensive choice of dining are all within a few minutes walk.

  • “The Dominican Republic has it all!”

    We hope you will join us on a Caribbean Surf Holiday in the Domican Republic.
