Kandui Villas is a world premier luxury surf resort. The founder and originator of Kandui Resort took requests from some of his guests for a higher standard of luxury during their stay, where their wives and families could live like royalty, and was inspired to begin work on a new venture that would cater to those looking for a luxury option while surfing some of the best waves in the world, and Kandui Villas was born.

Kandui Villas has taken the Mentawai experience to a whole new level as it provides its guests with the extravagance of a high-quality resort despite being located in this remote surfing haven. The amenities are outstanding, including the only infinity pool in Western Sumatra, and spacious luxury umas (traditional Mentawai buildings) for accommodations made from sustainably sourced and fine finished local hardwoods, each uniquely themed with carvings designed to highlight traditional art, culture, and the local environment.

During your stay at Kandui Villas, your home will be one of 12 luxury umas, all hand-built by Mentawai craftsman. Each uma offers all of the comforts, privacy, and serenity you could expect from a stay with us. All of the hardwood umas are hand carved with local animal and nature themes, have a large private tropical land scaped yard with Japanese grass and private beach access, ocean views, and are fully air-conditioned with mosquito nets, mini-bars, in-room safes, hot water, hair dryers and bathroom amenities.
The names of the Kandui Villas umas are: Biowak (monitor lizard), Monyet (monkey), Ikan (fish), Kura (turtle), Burung (bird), the triple uma is called ‘Sikerei’ (shaman), Buaya (crocodile), Lumba (dolphin), Utan (jungle), and Koat (wave).
The back one-third of each uma is built on a massive cistern which holds close to 10,000 gallons of rain water. The bathroom and shower facilities are clean and comfortable, with stone floors laid by craftsmen from Bali.
Each of the 12 umas are configured, with three king sized beds, or two king sized, and two double beds, making them very versatile with room for one to four people, making the umas perfect for singles, couples, groups of friends, or families.
Besides the luxury uma accommodations, restaurant, the Bar and Palapa, game room, and spa facilities, Kandui Villas also boasts the fastest internet connection in the Mentawai islands, with Wi-Fi around the entire pool area, and internet via cable in all of the umas. There is a PC available in the office, and besides that you are recommended to bring your own smartphones and laptops.
The Bar and Palapa building is located right off the swimming pool deck, next to the Game Room. The massive indoor-out door bar serves up your favorite cold beers, spirits, mixed drinks, as well as wine, and champagne. The out door Palapa, under the same roof as the Bar, is where you can lounge on sofas, drinking your favorite beverages, and is also a nice place to hang out with friends, your significant other, or to mingle with other guests, while relaxing in the shade, right on the edge of the pool deck.
The game room is located right off of the swimming pool deck, next to the bar, and has both a billiard table, as well as a ping-pong table contained within.
The Kandui Villas restaurant is 14 x 12 meters and two stories, located directly next to the swimming pool and connected by a wooden deck which wraps around the pool and leads to a game room, bar, and palapa.
Kandui Villas is one of only two resort in the Mentawai Islands to construct, and have a swimming pool. Not only did they build a swimming pool but they hired the best pool builders in South East Asia, to come in to the resort site, to design, and build a masterpiece of a swimming pool, specifically for this location. This pool is 25 meters in length x 18 meters in width, with wrap around benches along the entire interior of the pool. The infinity edge over flows into a large kiddie pool with a large stone deck encircling it.
The swimming pool utilizes a state of the art salt water chlorinator unit, which, through a process of electrolysis, reacts with the slight salinity in the pool water to form chlorine. The form of chlorine it produces is very mild, and does not affect skin, or eyes as an irritant. This mild form of chlorine, coupled with a salinity level similar to that of human tears, makes the water completely neutral feeling for you eyes, and skin, but still very refreshing, unlike the salty feeling you get when you get done swimming in the ocean. The main pool is surrounded by a massive out door wooden deck, which connects to the restaurant, game room, bar, and palapa.
Surf guides are all CPR / first aid certified and are ready to transport and accompany guests into any of the 20+ waves within a 30 minutes’ speedboat ride from the Villas. Featuring what some of the best surfers in the world claim to be some of the best waves in the world, the surf here is bound to provide memories that will last a lifetime. Photography and video services are available as well in order to document some of the best surf of your life. Every facet of a dream surf trip have been taken into account in order to provide the ultimate luxury Mentawai experience for guests of the Kandui Villas.
For surfing on any of the 12 different waves around the island, Kandui Villas have their dinghy available to take you and your guest / s anywhere you would like to surf depending upon the current daily wind and swell conditions.
Mid-length boards generally get used and only occasionally do the short boards and guns get used in extremely small or big conditions, but it is best to pack whatever you feel most comfortable surfing on. If you are riding traditional fiberglass boards, then be prepared to ding up your boards and possibly break a few of them on your trip.
Most people bring two-four boards in one board bag, but this is entirely up to you. If you do not want to hassle with buying a quiver of boards, and hauling them halfway around the world, Kandui Villas offers a wide range of high-quality Resin 8 and FireWire rental surfboards which are very reasonably priced. Lastly, a good ding repair kit is important, or at least bring some sort of sun cure resin for quick fixes.
Located in one of the world’s prime wave locations, the surfing mecca is known as the Playgrounds area of the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia. Kandui Villas’ proximity to multiple world class waves makes it the dream surfing destination. Kandui Villas offers the best location in the world for all levels of surfers to score the best waves of their lives!
The island is a dream paradise setting with a number of the best waves in the world for surfers of all skill levels and ability, and is one of the most incredibly magical places in the entire world!
