The Resort, located directly in front of world-class wave Lance’s Left, is made up of three luxury beachfront bungalows all handmade by Mentawai craftsmen.

Set against a lush jungle backdrop, each private bungalow is positioned on the palm-fringed white sand beachfront with panoramic views of the spectacular wave Lances Left. You can literally step from your bungalow terrace onto the sand and into the ocean within seconds.

The design of our bungalows combines the best of the local look and feel with the rigor and comfort that most Western travelers enjoy. The result is an elegant yet strikingly exotic experience.

The bungalows, designed for breathtaking views of the bay and wave, each have a big spacious terrace with comfortable lay back chairs that induce dozing off to the sound of the ocean and birds of the jungle. Maximum privacy is assured thanks to the natural landscape and property design. A fully furnished living room area inside the bungalow creates a homely feel.

Each private bungalow can accommodate up to four people. At any one time, there will only ever be a maximum of ten guests at the resort. The maximum guest limit allows Kingfisher Resort to take care in guaranteeing each guest a luxurious and comfortable stay. The private experience also ensures that the surf never gets too crowded. Booking the whole resort to enjoy between yourself and some friends is an option the resort often accommodates.

Program

At Kingfisher Resort we offer a wide range of activities, with an emphasis on utilizing the natural resources and cultural aspects unique to the Mentawai Islands. Your time at Kingfisher is your own, whether you’re surfing, snorkeling, fishing, lounging, visiting local villages, or participating in one of the unique cultural tours – there is something for everyone.

Surfing

With more world-class waves than anywhere else in the world, the Mentawai Islands are considered a surfing mecca guaranteeing consistent and quality surf all year round. World-renowned as a surfers paradise, the resort is located in an extremely wave-rich region with 10 different breaks, all accessible within 10 minutes via boat. With such an extensive selection to choose from; long lefts and rights, barrel perfection, rippable walls, heavy slabs, and fun beach breaks, the location at Kingfisher Resort caters to all levels and appetites of surfing.

Due to their position, the islands are exposed to the Indian Ocean, which means from May to October the location receives some of the biggest swells of the year, whereas November to February sees consistently smaller fun swells. Come March, April, and May mid-size swells start to show on the horizon.

Learn to surf

Travelling with a non-surfing significant other? Bringing the kids? Why not learn to surf in one of the most beautiful places on earth! Kingfisher Mentawai offers surf lessons for complete beginners, available daily with the on-site surf coach. Head down to the beach break every morning with a soft-top surfboard, your sunscreen, and wax for a day of ocean fun! Feeling comfortable on the surfboard? Head over to mini Ht’s and join the long-boarders in the lineup for a sunset surf session. As a top surfers destination, the Mentawai Islands offer ideal settings for beginners.

Please let Kingfisher Mentawai know in advance if you would like surf lessons during your stay.

Snorkeling

Kingfisher Mentawai is very fortunate to have a wide choice of fantastic snorkeling sites with warm, crystal clear water close to the resort. Directly in front of the resort is a keyhole offering amazing sites of live coral and teeming wildlife. Alternatively, you can take a short bike or boat ride to discover a diverse collection of hard and soft corals which provide a home and feeding ground for schools of vibrant reef fish, shellfish, anemones, giant clams, and turtles.

SUPs and foiling

At Kingfisher we have two SUPs and a foil board the guests are welcome to use. Get some exercise on the SUPs on the small days or just go for a mellow cruise through the beautiful mangroves. If you are feeling up for it, give the foil board a go. It is easier than it looks, and our guides will give you a helping hand along the way.

Trekking and biking

Kingfisher Resort is situated on Sipora Island, home to various wild jungle tracks. Go for a trek through the lush Mentawai greenery or take a bike ride and go discover your own private beach. A jungle trek will take you through the local villages, the closest one is about 5 kilometers from the resort. There you can immerse yourself in a completely unique culture, or test your skills in the volleyball court - the local kids are always keen on a game.

Location

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

Kingfisher Resort gives 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 the 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 set the stage for what has become a mecca for surfers around the world. From Kingfisher Resort's 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 to 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 neighbors and hosts by joining in a woodcarving or weaving lesson under a palm tree or getting 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. Kingfisher Resort considers delicious and plentiful food an integral part of an enjoyable dining experience to ensure even the most ravenous appetites will be satisfied.
