Accommodation

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.

Sally Aldrin

As Sally’s wanderlust led her all over the world, her experiences led her to a deep belief and dedication in sharing the gift of yoga. She believes that yoga has and will continue to make the world a better place by bringing about consciousness and awareness on how you are all connected.
Bristol Dunlap
Bristol Dunlap is an intuitive musician, artist, and yogi. She grew up on Maui, immersed in the nurturing love and endless humbling teachings of the land, the ocean, and small town community.

Her voice is soulful, sincere, and enlightening. She integrates her singing voice into her yoga classes, which are strong, energizing, and alignment focused.

Location

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.
