During your stay on Kandui, your stay will be in one of only 8 “umas”, traditional thatched houses built in the traditional Mentawai style by local Mentawaian craftsmen. Each uma is clean, spacious, comfortable, and offers an unparalleled view to the waves, ocean, and islands that surround the resort.

Hand-woven vaulted ceilings and the natural design features provide a sense of adventure and culture while the interior design features provide a feeling of home. Each traditional "uma" is identified by a unique Mentawai name but Kandui Resort commonly refers to them by number as they extend away from the restaurant.
