Living with SIBO is hard

It can be exhausting living with SIBO. You have to think about all of your meals, deal with painful and embarrassing symptoms, take countless rounds of medication, and try to live a 'normal' life at the same time.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could take a vacation from it all? To go somewhere where people totally understand you, to know exactly what it's like to live with SIBO and to take all that pressure away from you? 

Wouldn't it be great to take a vacation from SIBO for a few days? To have all your meals organised, give you the opportunity to relax and unwind from the pressures of chronic illness?



Come and be pampered for 6 days at the world's first SIBO Retreat.

Learn the 5 Key Pillars To Health: Awareness, Nutrition, Movement, Mindset and Lifestyle and how you can apply them to your life today.

Your hosts Rebecca Coomes and Kirsten Swales will guide you through a series of workshops, help you to relax through pampering sessions, ensure you eat delicious SIBO friendly food and help you to meet other people just like you.


Learn more about your condition and the 5 Key Pillars To Health. Come away empowered to take control of your health.

Enjoy delicious SIBO friendly food throughout the retreat. All dietary requirements catered.

Use this time to unwind and relax with yoga, meditation and more.

Travelling with SIBO is possible. Come and explore beautiful Bali, Indonesia with us on day trips and excursions.

Living with SIBO can be isolating. Meet other SIBOers just like you at the retreat and make life long friends.

Taking a vacation means unwinding with beautiful and relaxing pampering sessions.


Rebecca Coomes and Kirsten Swales know exactly what it's like to live with SIBO. Together they are passionate about helping others just like them to regain their health, vitality and happiness.

Chalina Estate is a magnificent property overlooking the picturesque rice fields of Canggu, Bali, Indonesia and is situated just minutes from the famed surf breaks at Echo Beach on the south-west coast.  Resting upon 5,300 square metres of beautifully landscaped gardens and lawns bordering the Pangi river, with a divine 35-metre swimming pool as its centrepiece, the villa invites guests to enter a world of total peace and privacy.

This luxurious home delightfully pairs the old with the new – classic Balinese architecture with alang-alang thatched roofs, sandstone walls, polished stone and dark wood floors provide the perfect backdrop to showcase the striking modern artwork.  

Featuring seven bedrooms and a bunk room for up to ten extra guests, generous living and dining areas and a separate lounge bar with two adjoining terraces, there’s plenty of space to relax and unwind.  The pool’s floating gazebo provides a soothing location for a massage or to practice meditation and embrace the villa’s uplifting energy.

Chalina Estate’s perfectly manicured lawns, exotic tropical flora and stunning outlook make the villa an idyllic setting for the world's first SIBO Retreat.  

Chalina Estate is also the ultimate destination to rejuvenate mind, body and soul.  Embark on a spiritual retreat in this peaceful haven surrounded by natural beauty and the stresses and strains of SIBO life will soon evaporate into the tropical air.

Enjoy the lush green surrounds and the tranquil luxury of Chalina Estate.

Your SIBO breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served in the al fresco dining area each day.

Workshops, yoga and meditation classes and informal gatherings will occur in the common area.

Relax from your travels and soak up the rays by the gorgeous 35-meter (115 feet) pool.


Chalina Estate is a small and intimate venue.  We have 3 deluxe rooms (2 person capacity), 3 pavillion rooms (2 person capacity), 1 twin room (2 person capacity) and a 10-bed bunk room available.  Due to the exclusive nature of the venue, the SIBO Retreat operates on a first in, first served basis and is limited to 24 people.  The dual occupancy rooms are perfect for a couple or friends who are happy to share a bed.

Truly pamper yourself by selecting one of the three deluxe rooms. These huge suits have stunning views over the surrounding rice paddies or garden area. Each deluxe villa has a large ensuite bathroom with rain shower, TV, and plenty of space to relax in.

Stand-alone pavilions are set on lawns sloping down towards the river, each with a patio from which to enjoy the view. Each room is furnished with a king-size four-poster bed draped with a mosquito net.  Ensuite bathrooms feature cobbled stone floors, black marble twin wash basins and rain showers.

Located on the ground floor of the main building, the twin room features twin whitewashed teak beds draped with mosquito nets and polished grey terrazzo floors.  It opens onto the large stone patio facing the pool. An ensuite bathroom features a Palimanan stone floor, rain shower, stainless steel bathtub and twin basins.

The bunk room is perfect for the budget conscious traveller or larger groups of friends wanting to attend the SIBO Retreat together. It faces the pool and garden and has five sets of bunk beds, which can sleep up to 10 adults.  There is a WC attached but no bathroom.
