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.




THE WAVES:

 Lance’s Left

Lances is the epitome of the classic Indo wave, a very long, superbly shaped wave that is renowned for being one of the most consistent locations in the Mentawai islands. Several take off zones mean this place rarely feels crowded, and with a relatively easy entry during take off it’s little wonder Lances is such a regular crowd pleaser. At three feet expect long, peeling, lined up walls perfect for pushing the limits on your turns, but also be on the lookout for two distinct barrel sections depending on swell direction. At six feet and above be prepared for corduroy lines stacked to the horizon. The wave transforms into a steep, deepwater takeoff with big open faces down the line.
Overall rating: 8 / 10
Best size: 3 to 6 feet.
Consustency: 9 / 10
Difficulty: 5 / 10
Bottom: coral reef.
Reef factor: 6 / 10
Length: 50 to 150 meters.
Level: intermediate to advanced.
Best tide: medium to high.
From resort: on your doorstep.
Shore access: through keyhole.

HT’s (Hollow Trees or Lance’s Right)

One of the worlds best waves, this premier righthander can produce the kind of ruler edge barrel perfection normally restricted to the imagination. When swells hit ‘The Office’ section of the wave, all there is to do is pull in and charge through one of the deepest, roundest and most perfect barrels you are ever likely to come across. One good wave at HT’s can make your trip, and one mistake could also prove disastrous. Breaking on a shallow reef, the end of the wave sucks even shallower when passing above the aptly named ‘Surgeons Table’. Still surfable on low tide, most people wait for mid to high tide to try their hand.
From 1 to 10 foot, HT’s will offer a barrel when combined with offshore winds.This wave can be fussy concerning swell direction, but when it turns on it really is a sight to behold, truly a freak of nature.
Overall rating: 9 / 10
Best size: 3 to 8 feet.

Shore access: sand bottom beach.

Bintangs

Situated across the bay from Lances Left this classy righthander offers short but perfect, mechanically shaped walls and barrel sections. Although playful under 4 feet, a dramatic transformation takes place once overhead. Waves surge towards the A-frame shaped reef before breaking, then throwing out a perfectly round cavern along the entire length of the wave. What this wave lacks in length it certainly makes up for in quality.
A little temperamental concerning swell direction, Bintangs is often overlooked by visiting charter boats. However our close proximity and intimate local knowledge ensures we’ll never miss an opportunity to score a few kegs at Bintangs.
Overall rating: 7 / 10
Best size: 2 to 6 feet.

Bottom: coral reef.
Reef factor: 7 / 10
Length: 15 to 40 meters.

From resort: 5 minutes by boat.
Shore access: through keyhole.

The Cobra

hort punchy walls to heaving, square barrels are what you’ll usually find at the Cobra. This moody lefthander can really turn it on with the correct swell direction, located just 50 meters from Lances Left, can occasionally link up with it’s more famous neighbour for a 200+ meter ride! A very steep takeoff followed by a throwing backdoor section is not uncommon at the Cobra. Choose your waves carefully, as this wave has some serious venom with wider sets that will push unlucky punters across the reef.
Not the easiest takeoff and barrel to negotiate, but the rewards are plentiful for those willing to try their hand. An often uncrowded or empty lineup should be enough to lure even the most reef shy surfer to chase down a throwing Cobra pit.

Beach break

A one kilometer stretch of idyllic palm fringed, white sand beach is just a stones throw from Kingfisher Bay Resort. The turquoise coloured water is picture perfect, with a series of sandbars to choose from. Good sand banks can be fickle, but with the right conditions a satisfying session can be had by the patient surfer. Also a great spot for people learning to surf.

Private bungalows

Overlooking the majestic lineup of Lances Left, just 20 meters from the waters edge is the spectacular location of our bungalows. By combining traditional Mentawaian design with Western attention to strength and comfort, the result is a uniquely exotic and luxurious experience.
The clean and spacious sleeping and lounging area is AC and ceiling fan cooled for ultimate comfort, with a large Western style bathroom complete with running hot water at the rear of the building. Facing the ocean, slide into hammock on the elevated and expansive front deck, the perfect place to relax whilst taking in the sights and sounds of this magnificent coastline.
Up to 3 people per bungalow.
 

Share accommodation

Like the neighbouring bungalows, attention to local aesthetics as well as a Western standard of comfort can be found both inside and out. Purpose built to accommodate up to 5 guests, the share accommodation bungalow allows travelers on all budgets the opportunity to experience the Mentawai islands for short or longer term visits.
The open planned sleeping area is ceiling fan cooled, with a Western style bathroom that include a hot shower. An extra large front deck means there is plenty of space to relax in front of the almost hypnotic sight of Lances Left.
 

Restaurant and barKeeping to the Mentawai theme, our restaurant is the centerpiece of the resort. From our spacious veranda you can take in the awe-inspiring, panoramic view of Lances Left and the adjacent bay. The open terrace design is perfect for catching even the slightest breeze, and perhaps a glimpse of the flying lizards and squirrels that are endemic to the Mentawai islands.
A variety of beers and juices can be ordered from the bar, or you can lounge in the chill out area in mix of modern and driftwood furniture. DVD’s, internet connection and daily surf photo’s can be utilized at your leisure, or simply get to know the people who you will be sharing adventures and waves with during your trip.

MACARONIS RESORT
Macaronis wave is the Mentawai’s most consistent and perfect wave breaking perfectly in all tides and ridable in almost any wind conditions. It’s no wonder it has previously been officially voted the ‘funnest wave to surf in the world’, in fact in this survey an amazing 76% of all pro surfers and industry figure heads choose Macas as the ‘funnest wave they had ever surfed’ (refer to Waves Mag December 2003).
Perhaps the biggest draw card now, is that Macas is the only wave in the Mentawai’s where crowd capacity is properly managed under legislation released by the regional Government. As of April 20 2010, Silabu Village only allows access for 2 boats daily that must book in advance and use the Moorings provided, to share surfing at Macaronis with maximum 16 resort guests.
8 Pole Villas elevated above Silabu salt water lagoon offer a range of modern facilities with superb views. Each villa comfortably accommodates up to 4 guests with upstairs loft, 2 split AC systems (one on each level), central cooling fan, 2 person bath tub, hot shower, deck shower, phone, Sat TV, DVD player and wireless hotspot internet.

Villa Accommodation …. Accommodation at Macaronis Surf Resort is in family sized thatched villas situated over magnificent Silabu salt water lagoon. Swim from your villa balcony or just sit back, read a book and enjoy the breeze and magnificent surroundings.
