Villa Mentawai is a private beachfront villa located on Palau (island) Simakakang, in the North Sipora / central Mentawai area. World class surfing breaks can be reached within 10 minutes, and the closest waves are only 5 minutes away.


You can expect greater flexibility than a lot of other resorts. When the surf is pumping and the weather permits, you have the option of staying out all day on the the villa's speed boat “Ratu Ombak”, as its extremely comfortable & very well shaded. Most other boats in the region simply can't offer the same service.

The surf guide will pick and choose windows when he knows it's going to be best and to avoid the crowds, using the whole available day... This could be any combination of session times or even one mega session making the most of a particularly non crowded time and then head out for a fish in the late afternoon... The options are endless.

All visiting guests have complimentary use of the Villas main speedboat, the “Ratu Ombak” (Wave Queen). She is a brand new 7.5m half cab surf striking weapon, fitted with the latest series 250 hp 4-stroke Suzuki outboard. The boat is purpose-built to take you to the surf breaks, fishing, snorkeling and island-hopping in a fast and safe manner. She offers plenty of shade with it’s half cab, full length hard top canopy and is ftted with safety equipment including GPS, VHF Radio, Echo sounder, EPIRB & Satellite Phone.


The location of the central Mentawai area simply can't be beat! Not only does it offer up a stack of it's own world-class waves, but it's also perfectly situated for day trips to South Sipora (Hollow Trees, Lances, Bintangs etc) and the “Playgrounds” (Rifes, Kandui, Hideaways etc).


Villa Mentawai sits on 90m of private beachfront on the sheltered side of a beautiful tropical island.

A spacious open-plan lounge, bar, living room opens up onto a huge deck, boasting 180% Ocean and tropical island views.
