Kandui Resort

Classic Resort in one of the best surfing locations in the World

Kandui Resort has an enviable position in the Northern Mentawai Islands. Located in the ‘Playgrounds’ region, the resort lies within a 20-minute boat ride of some of the most consistent and high-quality waves in the world. With reef asses facing almost every direction, there is always a spot to deal with pretty much every swell and wind combination!

Due to the area’s exposure to the roaring 40s, with the help of the expert surf guides onsite, you’ll be able to score waves year-round. The resort offers high quality and comfortable accommodation with air conditioning, hot water, and plentiful food. There are very few places on the planet that will give you the quality and variety of waves that you can expect at Kandui Resort.

The Resort

A favourite with travelling pro surfers and the public alike, the resort is perfect for single travellers, groups, couples and families alike. If you want to surf this wave-rich region in comfort and style, then Kandui has you covered!

Sitting on a stunning island, fringed with quality waves, you will stay in one of only eight Umas (traditional bungalows). All Umas feature large ensuites and are fully air-conditioned for your comfort. These bungalows are built in traditional Mentawai style with locally sourced wooden and sit beautifully on the island. The resort has a good-sized restaurant for all meals, a games room and internet is available (rare in this area!).

Waves at Kandui Resort

Kandui Resort sits in the ‘Playgrounds’ region in Northern Mentawai. This area has a high concentration of waves for all levels at all times of the year! The Peak season of May -October brings the largest swells, favouring the advanced to expert surfers, with the rest of the year serving up consistent head-high to overhead surf!

From Rifles, a perfect right-hander that can barrel for hundreds of metres, Kandui Left (No-Kandui), a super fast and technical barrel over shallow reef, life-changing waves await the surfers skilled enough to take on this wave at size. A-Frames, a fun a frame peak that can barrel. 4-Bobs, a super fun right-hander, perfect for intermediates and turns. Bank Vaults, a powerful right-hander with multiple barrel sections. Hideaways, a fast left that offers perfect barrels at size! WIth loads of other waves in the area, there is always a wave for everyone!

The Umas

An Uma is a traditional wooden Bungalow built from local hardwoods in the Mentawai style. Kandui Resort has used local materials and techniques to provide beautiful and comfortable accommodation. With only 8 Umas onsite, the resort has a low capacity, keeping the crowds low and the service to the guests high!

Each Uma includes beautiful, hand-sanded hardwood floors, and custom wood furniture including a couch, desk, small table, and chairs. The entire space is cooled down by a combination of ceiling fans, portable fans, and air conditioning. Each Uma has a wireless connection and a small speaker to play your iPod. There are screened windows with a glass window that can be shut tight and locked, with curtains on the inside to let in, or block out light. There is a specific area to hang wet clothes outside and in the bathroom.

The Cuisine

The meals at Kandui Resort are all centered around their main restaurant and bar. Serving up 3 hearty meals a day, the menu is healthy and varied, catering for all tastes and requirements! The resort offers full meals ranging from local Indonesian dishes to pasta plates, pizza, chicken and of course fresh fish.

The resort aims to do as many BBQs as possible and all travelers have 3 soft drinks and 3 healthy juices included a day. Kandui understands how important good food is for your surfing and you will not be disappointed with the quality served up!

Activities

Do as much or as little as you like. The landscape and activities available in our area are extraordinary and varied. There are things to keep you totally busy or you can practice the fine art of doing nothing at all, while you’re not surfing of course.

Surfboard Rental

Kandui Resort has partnered with AWAYCO to offer the highest quality surfboard rental available. With a full range of quality and well looked after surfboards, these aren’t your usual rental stock and are worthy of the waves in the area! Never be stuck without a board again!

Getting there

After arriving in Padang, you will be met by resort staff who will transfer you to your hotel for your overnight stay. You’ll then be collected early morning and taken to the port to take the Mentawai Fast Ferry to make the 4-hour journey to the resort. Once in the Islands, you will be collected by the resort team by boat. Alternatively, for larger groups, private speed boat transfers are available to the resort!
