Kingfisher | Surf Resort | Mentawai, Indonesia





Kingfisher Bay Resort is a gateway to a world of amazing waves, culture, adventure and natural wonder. Let us and our ever helpful and smiling staff show you a truly memorable Mentawai experience in all its remarkable diversity and uniqueness.

We give you the opportunity to experience a strikingly original part of the world unlike any other destination; picture-perfect waves, a completely unique and fascinating environment with a backdrop of idyllic palm fringed beaches and turquoise waters. As our name suggests, the resort is situated on the edge of an expansive bay, regularly frequented by stunning, acrobatic kingfisher birds, and a vast array of other wildlife including majestic sea eagles, large flying squirrels and pristine coral reefs teeming with sea life.

The breathtaking waves along the Mentawai islands sets the stage for what has become a mecca for surfers around the world. From our dream location in front of Lance’s Left on the southern tip of Sipora island, fantasies of surfing waves so tantalizing and seemingly out of reach, can now become a reality. The island also caters for fishing, snorkeling and a wide range of activities on land.

For the culturally curious, the local village provides a window into the lives of a community with an unfamiliar yet fascinating lifestyle. You can 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, where drinks and food are available. Meals are prepared using fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and meats, cooked in a variety of styles including Western, Indonesian, Chinese and barbeques. We consider delicious and plentiful food an integral part of an enjoyable dining experience, so meals are served buffet style to ensure even the most ravenous appetites will be satisfied.
