Program

Arrivals and Departure

Your trip will begin around 7 a.m., on the first day marked on your trip schedule. Upon arrival at the city of Padang (Sumatra) on the day before the scheduled departure date of your trip, spend one night in the city of Padang. At the airport, one of Hidden Bay Resort's representatives will meet you and take you to the hotel where you will spend the night.

The next day at dawn, around 6 a.m., the representative will pick you up to take you to the Mentawai fast boat which will start your journey from the city of Padang to the resort. It’s around a three to seven-hour trip depending on weather conditions. On your return, you should usually arrive in Padang around 6:30 p.m. on the last day marked on your schedule. You must book your ticket out of Padang after 9 p.m. Sometimes, you will need to spend the night at Padang and take your flight on the next day.

People with connecting international flights should pay extra attention to the schedule and dates of the flights. If you are flying from Jakarta, you are recommended to book an international flight for the next day or after 23 hours on the day of your return. Hidden Bay Resort organized their schedule in order to allow guests to surf on the first and last day of the trip. This is another advantage they offer to guests in order to make the most of their trip

Transfers

The transfer service includes all transportation from the airport to the resort and back. Hidden Bay Resort uses the modern Mentawai fast boat. Due to the design that allows it to navigate safely in extreme winds and stormy conditions, this long boat is safer and more stable than the big speedboats as it can navigate in all weather conditions. This way, you will have a much greater chance of a guaranteed departure on the scheduled dates avoiding delays and inconveniences due to bad weather.

Itinerary

The departures from Padang to the resort are always early in the morning around 7 a.m. of the first day marked on the schedule, allowing guests to arrive at the resort around 3 p.m., in time to get settled, have a healthy and energetic meal and go for their first surf session on the islands. The return from the resort to Padang is organized late in the morning of the last day marked on the schedule, allowing one last surf session early in the morning before getting back to mainland Sumatra. The arrival in Padang occurs around 6:30 p.m.

  • PLEASE NOTE: All guests are required to stay overnight in the city of Padang on the first scheduled day of their trip and book the plane ticket to leave Padang after 21 hours on the last day of their trip. Hidden Bay Resort Mentawais will do everything in their power to ensure that you are able to travel on the scheduled time but they reserve the right not to be held responsible for any unanticipated delays during the process of transfer to the resort or cancellation of the departure due to bad weather.

Location

Hidden Bay Resort Mentawais is in the middle of more than 20 perfect waves in the North Mentawais, where it is used to be called playgrounds area. All types of waves for many different levels can be reached from three to 15 minutes by speedboats.

The Mentawai Islands are a chain of more than seventy islands and islets on the Indian Ocean located approximately 150 kilometers from the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The strait that separates them from Sumatra is the Mentawai Strait. Siberut is the largest island. The other major islands are Sipura, North Pagai (Pagai Utara), and South Pagai (Pagai Selatan) and the indigenous inhabitants of the islands are known as the people of the Mentawais. The Mentawai Islands have become a major surfing destination in the world during the last decade.
