MENTAWAI INDO - KINGFISHER BAY RESORT
Positioned directly in front of Lances Left, arguably the most consistent wave in the Mentawai archipelago, this will be our first year accommodating those looking for a genuine Mentawai experience.
Take a journey and escape the pressures and obligations of daily life and immerse yourself in the island rhythm of a unique and remarkably unspoiled corner of the globe. Join us for a once in a lifetime experience amongst world class waves set in a culturally rich and spectacularly beautiful location.
Whether you are looking for adventure, an insight into a completely different culture or simply to relax, you will find it all at Kingfisher Bay Resort.
Kingfisher Bay Resort gives you the opportunity to experience an original part of the world unlike anywhere you've ever been to or imagined; freakishly perfect waves, a completely unique and fascinating culture with a backdrop of idyllic palm fringed beaches and turquoise waters. Kingfisher Bay Resort is situated on the edge of an expansive bay, regularly frequented by stunning and acrobatic kingfisher birds, as well as a vast array of other wildlife including majestic sea eagles, large flying squirrels and pristine coral reefs teeming with sea life.
The natural beauty of the Mentawai islands is the stage for what has become a mecca for surfers around the world, and with our dream location in front of Lances Left on the southern tip of Sipora island, those tantalizing and seemingly out of reach fantasies of surfing breathtaking perfect waves can become a reality! Fishing and snorkeling are catered for as well as a wide and varying range of activities on land.
For the culturally curious, the local village provides a window into the lives of a race and people with a very different lifestyle to what most of us are familiar with. Get to know your friendly neighbours and hosts by joining in a woodcarving or weaving lesson under a palm tree or get involved in the daily volleyball match in the village.
If all this sounds like too much activity, feel free to relax in a shaded hammock or catch the breeze in our open-planned restaurant. Meals are prepared using fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and meats, cooked in a variety of styles including; Western, Indonesian, Chinese as well as barbeques on the beach.
We consider great food and lots of it an integral part of an enjoyable experience, so meals are served buffet style to ensure even the most ravenous appetites will be satisfied.
Kingfisher Bay Resort is a gateway to a world of amazing waves, nature, culture and adventure. Let us and our ever helpful and smiling staff show you a truly memorable Mentawai experience in all its remarkable diversity.
