Luxury Resort overlooking the world-class waves of Simeulue!

Simeulue Island is a remote island, located 150km from mainland Sumatra, Indonesia. The area has become famous for its uncrowded point breaks, beach breaks, reefs, and off-shore islands. The Peak, the most consistent wave on the island, is right in front of Mahi-Mahi Surf Resort and viewable from all its rooms and common spaces!

The resort provides you with access to surf, marine, and jungle adventures and gives back through initiatives that achieve positive social, environmental, and economic impact in the Simeulue and Banyak landscapes.

The Resort

Mahi-Mahi Surf Resort is an all-inclusive ecologically minded surf resort located on Simeulue Island, in the Aceh province in Northern Sumatra.

There are a number of communal areas for guests to enjoy. The Joglo, a large open area made from traditional teakwood, is where all meals are enjoyed. This is also equipped with a projector for movie nights, a stereo, comfortable sofas, bean bags, board games, and books! There are two bar tops for dining, a fire pit for bonfires, a 9 hole pitch-and-put golf course, a volleyball court, and a swimming pool.

Wi-Fi is available in the dining area and the resort also offers 4G sim cards for purchase to keep you connected if needed.

Waves at Mahi-Mahi Surf Resort

Situated in the Doldrums just above the equator, Simeulue is well exposed to swells and not affected by trade winds as much as other areas of Indonesia. This means winds are most often light, gifting favourable conditions for surfing. This makes Mahi-Mahi Surf Resort a year-round surf trip destination.

Simeulue has a spot for all swells and winds with enough variety to keep all abilities happy! Thereโ€™s a pleasant vibe in the line-ups and a lot of secret spots to be discovered with the resort’s surf guides!

April-October is the prime season for surfing here (same as Mentawai) with numerous 6-10ft S-SW swells.

Why We Love Mahi-Mahi Surf Resort

Everything is included in your stay! From airport transfers to all meals, free scooter usage and assistance of the knowledgable surf guides!

Unbeatable views over the Peak, the most consistent wave of the island!

Uncrowded world-class surf right at your doorstep!

Rooms and Villas

The Bungalows and Villas are constructed from up-cycled materials, re-incorporating traditional antique structures. Here guests can relax in comfort and style, knowing that the resort has taken every precaution to minimize our ecological impact.

All rooms come with a private semi-outdoor bathroom, ceiling fan, A/C, and mosquito nets, allowing you to relax in comfort and privacy. Antique wood and bamboo thatched roofing provide a cosy, yet tropical feel. The rooms have a patio/outdoor veranda that faces the garden, golf course, and the peak, making it easy to choose the best times to surf.

A pair of two-story villas, fully equipped with A/C, kitchens, refrigerators, lounge rooms, ceiling fans, and mosquito nets are available for private groups and families looking for bigger spaces.

The Cuisine

Refuel at the buffet-style breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Start your day right with freshly ground coffee, tropical fruits and juices, smoothie bowls, homemade bread, crepes, vegan pancakes, and free-range eggs! A variety of traditional Indonesian rendang curries, nasi goreng, and fresh fish will keep you fuelled for those afternoon sessions! A blend of local and western-style meals are made with ingredients grown and sourced locally, often from Mahi-Mahiโ€™s own organic community garden.

Unlimited coconuts are available all day at the cafe along with fresh fruits, juices, and smoothies. Each afternoon taste the daily freshly baked cakes, slices, and other treats the chefs whip up using Mahi-Mahi’s organic raw chocolate.

Activities

Mahi-Mahi Surf Resort offers many activities on top of surfing: SUP, fishing, birdwatching tours, snorkeling, motorbike riding, island hopping, waterfall, riverwalks, Sinabang food market and pitch-and-put golf course and volleyball court. You can also participate in turtle conservation and other activities focused on promoting sustainability!

Yoga

Enjoy complimentary yoga at the resort to stretch those sore surfing muscles! Yoga is a good option for non-surfer alike, and for those looking to escape into a slower pace of life filled with surf, yoga, and healthy living.

Getting there

You would need to fly to the international airport in Medan, KNO, Indonesia (either via Jakarta, Bali, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, or Bangkok). On arrival in Medan, you take a 1-hour flight to Simeulue Island with Wings Air. It may be necessary to stay overnight in Medan depending on the time of your flight arrival.

We booked a trip to Niyama Maldives (13 - 20 May 2022) with Awave.

Before deciding to go to Niyama I had close contact with Giulia about what would be the best resort for that season. Giulia responded almost immediately and gave us good and detailled advice about the surf and of course also about the resort.

We had a great trip! The resort was just prefect as well as the service! Unfortunately the waves were a bit choppy and the wind cross/ onshore, but that's mother nature....... (and May is a very difficult month for the Maldives). We still surfed every day in fun size waves and had a great time.

Would definitely recommend Niyama as well as booking with Awave!

Great communication, fantastic care and attention from James who is very knowledgeable and approachable, and the product recommended to us as an alternative, Ayada, was a real paradise. We had very high expectations and we were really impressed with everything (apart from the the quality of the surfboards for hire). :)
