Kingfisher Mentawai

Remote Surf Resort in the wave-rich Mentawais

Kingfisher Resort is a beautiful boutique resort located in the heart of the Mentawai Islands, one of the most wave-rich areas in the world. The resort is your gateway to surfing some of the most consistent and perfect reef breaks in the world!

The resort is located on the shores of a beautiful bay, where the resort’s namesake, Kingfishers frequent. The white sand beach looks out to turquoise waters and is backed by palm trees, with 10 high-quality waves within 10 minutes boat ride of the resort!

The Resort

Kingfisher Resort sits on the southern tip of Sipora Island, in the Central Mentawais, within walking distance of Lance’s Left, one of the most consistent waves in the region! The resort occupies a prime beachfront location, overlooking the turquoise waters of a protected bay.

The resort has been built using traditional building materials and techniques and blends in well to its tropical island setting! With just 3 bungalows for a maximum of 10 guests, Kingfisher offers a comfortable and intimate experience! With a large restaurant, the resort also has a newly installed swimming pool to chill beside!

Waves at Kingfisher Resort

Kingfisher Resort is located in one of the most wave regions in the Mentawais. With 10 waves located within a 10-minute boat ride, there is always somewhere breaking offshore. Lance’s Left, a world-class left-hander is just a short walk from the resort, with Lance’s Right, the pin-up wave of the Mentawais being just a short boat ride away.

Nearby is Bintangs, a short but super intense, offering tubes and walls! Up the reef from Lance’s Left is Cobras, a heavy left that will spit you out to the channel. There are other semi-secret waves, rarely surfed by the charter boats in the area as well! The onsite surf guides will always be on hand to find you the best waves each session.

Why We Love Kingfisher Mentawai

The remote beauty of the resort. Located on a pristine tropical island, this really is paradise!

Having Lance’s Left on your doorstep and so many great waves within easy reach of the resort!

With only 3 bungalows, the resort is intimate and perfect for groups of friends and families traveling together!

I run surf coaching trips to perfect, uncrowded waves and I relied on the AWAVE team to deliver for my clients a month long boat trip to the Maldives. We had great waves on an absolutley 5* boat called North Seven which I REALLY recommend you enquire about.

I was dubious at first as a few boats were changed, in for repair but James assured me correctly this was a usual thing and they would endevour to find us the very best replacement (which they did). North Seven was so new we were the third guests but the crew were super experienced and could not have given us a better service. Captain Usmaan, the Chef great food, Hasan and Azim our surf boat operators could not have worked any harder and always had a smile even after the 50th request to speed us to the line up or spend four hours cruising looking or waves.

AWAVE team were always on hand to answer any fears and smooth out any worries. The payment system using Revolut was super easy.

We did have a few hiccups with the local airlines which was resolved and partly our fault (as for a month trip we took alot of surfboards and in some cases were over weight).

Take the fear out of booking and especially group bookings by using the AWAVE team. Justin West Coaching recommended.

These guys are the BEST! Massively knowledgeable, fun and absolute shredders. I approached them asking for a UK winter getaway somewhere in the Indian Ocean and they suggested the perfect place, awesome setup with the beach a short stroll from my accommodation with 3 sick waves breaking over reefs to chose from. Real life doesn’t get much better than this. I also popped my barrel cherry in a big way on this trip so it was a truely memorable one. James also somehow wangled a boat charter to some super remote islands where we scored epic surf and landed some massive fish. James’ broken Indonesian language skills will get you places. Thanks again guys you rock.

James is a super knowledgeable surfer with a great ability to match any trip requirements to the right locations. He has arranged several trips for me and my friends in France, Morocco and more recently Indonesia. Awave have a great knowledge of all the surf spots and will go the extra mile to make sure your trip is all set up. With limited time to do this myself their service was invaluable.

Giuliana has been amazing to work with!! She was always available and answered all my questions. Thank you for all your help! We can't wait for our trip!

Fantastic service from start to finish from James and his team. After having several ‘self organised’ trips to Asia end with only a handful of good surf days I decided this time to use Awave in hope of maximising my valuable holiday time. James custom built a trip for me and my friends tailored for our abilities and requirements. There were no days wasted waiting for transfers as he organised it all from the airport to the beach. We scored pretty much every day whilst also having a surf trip that had that ‘off the beaten track’ feel we wanted. To round it off there was also a secret boat trip in the end where we surfed an awesome spot just us...Unforgettable. Will be using again.

Fantastic service and support from Giulia during our trip. During a self organised trip to Maldives, we ended up in a sketchy situation: the hotel was far from the described plus the owner 'forgot' to mention that the whole island was in lockdown for a covid emergency. I quickly realized that I would need support and the best in class. That's when I decided to use Awave! Giulia answered reactively and custom built several solutions for me and my girlfriend, based on what feasible, our budget and surfing preferences!! No other words needed. Thanks Giulia, we'll be in touch again!

My friends and I recently went on a trip to the Maldives. We booked a week on the Hudhuranfushi resort which was amazing! The staff was very welcoming, flawless facilities and tasty food. One day our surf guide Ryan caught a fish and made some sashimi on the spot! I think that was pretty thoughtful! Awave agency really made sure all our needs where met as we where a big group of friends. A very personal approach and clear communication. Epic surf, great service, memories of a lifetime! I highly recommend traveling with Awave!

I had just arrived in Bali when the whole of Indonesia went into lockdown again. Despite travel restrictions such as mandatory vaccination and PCR tests, flight cancellations and even the fast ferries to the Mentawis being cancelled, Giulia tried everything to get me there. It was a hell of a trip to get there but totally worth it.

I scored pristine and empty Mentawis. The resort was affordable yet very luxurious given the remoteness. And with their great surf guide and their boat, I scored amazing empty waves!
