Kingfisher Mentawai Resort

From your bungalow you will be greeted by the impressive sight of Lances Left, arguably the most consistent world class wave in the Mentawai archipelago.  Kingfisher Bay Resort is located in an extremely wave rich region with 10 different waves within a 20 minute boat ride. With such an extensive selection to choose from; fun beach breaks, long lefts and rights, barrel perfection and heavy slabs... all levels and appetites are catered for at Kingfisher Bay Resort.

Experience the Mentawais, a strikingly original part of the world; freakishly perfect waves, a completely unique and fascinating culture with a backdrop of idyllic palm fringed beaches and turquoise waters. As the name suggests, Kingfisher Bay Resort is situated on the edge of an expansive bay, regularly frequented by stunning and acrobatic kingfisher birds, as well as a vast array of other wildlife including majestic sea eagles, large flying squirrels and pristine coral reefs teeming with sea life.

The natural beauty of the Mentawai islands is the stage for what has become a mecca for surfers around the world, and with Kingfisher Bay Resort's dream location in front of Lances Left on the southern tip of Sipora island, those seemingly out of reach fantasies of surfing breathtakingly perfect waves can become a reality!  Fishing and snorkeling are catered for as well as a wide and varying range of land activities.

For the culturally curious, the local village provides a window into the lives of a race and people with a very different lifestyle to what most of us are familiar with. Get to know your friendly neighbours and hosts by joining in a woodcarving or weaving lesson under a palm tree or get 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 Kingfisher's open-plan restaurant.

Accommodation

This epic place includes just 3 bungalows (2 X twin/double and 1 X 5 share with 4 singles downstairs and 1 bed on mezzanine level) so most importantly this means a maximum of only 9 surfers at the resort at any one time.  Bungalows are all air-conditioned and fan-cooled with Western style bathrooms and hot showers.  

Kingfisher Bay Resort's open-plan restaurant serves excellent meals using fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and meats, cooked in a variety of styles including: Western, Indonesian and Chinese.  Meals are served buffet style to ensure even the most ravenous appetites will be satisfied.

Meals

Keeping to the Mentawai theme, Kingfisher Resort restaurant is the centerpiece of the resort. From the spacious veranda you can take in the awe-inspiring, panoramic view of Lances Left and the adjacent bay. The open terrace design is perfect for catching even the slightest breeze, and perhaps a glimpse of the flying lizards and squirrels that are endemic to the Mentawai islands. A variety of beers and juices can be ordered from the bar, or you can lounge in the chill out area in mix of modern and driftwood furniture. DVD’s, internet connection and daily surf photo’s can be utilized at your leisure, or simply get to know the people who you will be sharing adventures and waves with during your trip.

Surf

Kingfisher Bay Resort is located in an extremely wave rich region with 10 different waves within a 20 minute boat ride. With such an extensive selection to choose from; fun beach breaks, long lefts and rights, barrel perfection and heavy slabs... all levels and appetites are catered for at Kingfisher Bay Resort.

Lances is the epitome of the classic Indo wave, a very long, superbly shaped wave that is renowned for being one of the most consistent locations in the Mentawai islands. Several take off zones mean this place rarely feels crowded, and with a relatively easy entry during take off it’s little wonder Lances is such a regular crowd pleaser. At three feet expect long, peeling, lined up walls perfect for pushing the limits on your turns, but also be on the lookout for two distinct barrel sections depending on swell direction. At six feet and above be prepared for corduroy lines stacked to the horizon. The wave transforms into a steep, deepwater takeoff with big open faces down the line.

Although not the most prolific barrel producing wave in the Mentawai, it’s length and variations through different sections mean all levels of ability can enjoy Lances. Also a great place for intermediate surfers to push themselves into bigger waves.
