The Pool

Rooms with a view, indeed. This was the view from my room, the bunk room. Inquire in advance to secure a room that looks out to the pool & surrounding rice paddy jungle.

Assorted floaties and air mattresses make the pool superbly enjoyable. Amidst the Institute of Code’s high-intensity 10-day learning experiences, it’s great to take a mental break and remember you’re in beautiful Bali. You can look forward to swan races, sunset seshes, and dips in the pool at ‘recess.’

The Classroom

The classroom is open air (with blinds to pull down for shade when the sun is high). It is set up as a long, wood table, with a few additional seating bars on either side, facing a large screen for projection. Different mentors teach different portions of each day to keep content fresh and the momentum high. Here, Kiersten and Lauren present at The Blonde Abroad x Institute of Code blogging retreat. Photo cred: eyes_of_a_nomad

As much learning happens outside as inside. The villa is your classroom. Photo cred: @eyes_of_a_nomad

The Den

There are at least three areas in the villa that feel like an open air living room or den. This allows plenty of room to stretch out, break out into small groups, and to get personalized help from the team of Institute of Code mentors. Photo cred: @eyes_of_a_nomad

 The Ethos

The Institute of Code ethos is equally concerned with how you learn as what you learn. Their concept is to remove you from the daily distractions of your life, and then to provide you with healthy and delicious food, a beautiful setting, built in self care like yoga and massages, and talented mentors prepared to stay up into the wee hours of the morning helping you master that CSS to match your brand. (This summer, there have been puppies, too!)
