For this retreat, you will be staying at Mahi-Mahi Surf Resort. The bungalows of Mahi-Mahi Surf Resort are located on 10,000 meters square of garden paradise, fronted by a white sand beach, and directly in front of an epic A-Frame peak, Sumatran Trestles, which is one of the most consistent waves in Indonesia. Over ten surf spots within 30 minutes of the bungalows provide uncrowded waves for beginners, intermediate surfers, and professionals.
Mahi-Mahi boasts five bungalows, melding 100-year-old solid teak traditional limasans imported from Java to a modern ground floor. All have verandahs, private indoor-outdoor western style bathrooms, ceiling fans, mosquito nets, and comfortable, quality innerspring queen-sized or single beds, depending on your preference.
There are a number of communal areas for guests to enjoy. There is a large open area made from a traditional teakwood Joglo equipped with DVD projector, stereo, comfortable sofas, table tennis, and board games. There are a number of other outdoor dining options. There is a private terrace, barbecue area, and two level bar that is directly in front of the peak.
During this retreat, you will have plenty of time alone and with the group and will have yoga classes for five days. Whether you would just want to take a step back in time to these tranquil beaches and jungles or spend your days surfing uncrowded breaks, Sumatra's western island, Pulau Simeulue, will be a trip of a lifetime! Yoga, surfing, and live music on a remote island. What more could you ask for?
You will enjoy a boat trip and a jungle excursion.
The retreat will take place in Simeulue Island. Take a step back in time off the beaten path to Sumatra's western island, Simeulue. Lonely Planet describes this isolated island as a rocky volcanic out-crop blanketed in rainforest and fringed with clove and coconut plantations. It is a true gem few tourists and surfers get to, which equals uncrowded waves for days. Whether you are just looking to get away from it all or wanting to get barreled, you will find your bliss here.
You will be served with three organic, local cuisines daily. Breakfast options include fresh fruit, muesli, fruit juice, coconuts and coconut milk, eggs, potatoes, banana pancakes, nasi goreng, baked beans, and fried tomatoes. Dinner and lunch options include Indonesian specialties, such as chicken, fish, meat curries and vegetarian dishes (Gado Gado, tempe, tofu, rice etc.), and western favorites, like steak, pizza, spaghetti Bolognese, burgers, and tacos.
Simeulue Island offers excursions into pristine jungle and marine environments like the Indonesia of 30 years ago. There are stunning clean beaches, coral reefs, swimming holes, primary rainforest walks, and waterfalls all nearby. You can hire a motorbike with board racks and explore the island yourself or they can arrange guided tours.
You can also have an optional add-on Reiki or massage sessions with Sally Aldrin.
