Accommodation

Deluxe Villa


You will stay in large luxury beach front villa accommodation with large balconies, overlooking a premier surf break Monkeys. Each villa has large ceiling fans for a nice natural breeze while you sleep at night, but also air conditioning when you need that extra comfort during the heat of the day.

 

Furnished inside with a comfortable lounge and dining area, and outside with chairs made for lounging around on the deck, watching the surf. The ensuite bathroom provides the creature comforts you want from home, allowing a nice hot shower at the end of each day.

 

All villas have decks on the front and back, so you can check out the beautiful sunrises in the morning from the front, and sunsets out back each night. The villas can easily be reconfigured for a family, with a king bed and two single beds.


Luxury Double Story Villa


There is also a double story luxury villa fit for a large family or two families sharing.

 

Each level is larger than the single deluxe villas, and the decks are huge. The top deck provides the best views in the resort across the bay to Monkeys. The deck lounges are the place to relax after a long surf. The luxury two story villa also has fans in every room and is fully air conditioned, with bathrooms upstairs and downstairs.

Surf & Other Activities

The southern region of the Telo Islands has an abundance of high quality Sumatran waves to suit all levels of surfers, from beginners to experienced or professional.

 

Monkeys is the go-to wave in the area because of its consistency and its appeal to all levels. It is the swell magnet for the region so if there’s no swell at Monkeys, there’s unlikely to be any anywhere. On the Monkeys point, there are 4 right hand breaks: Monkeys, Coffins, New School and Outer Monkeys. When a medium swell is running, all 4 breaks will be pumping.

 

The Monkeys Resort 11m speedboat is powered by 2×250 horsepower engines and travels at an average speed of 25 knots, ensuring you get to your destination quickly and smoothly. You will be able to spend more time in the water and less time in the boat. It’s full cabin construction means you can always keep out of the sun and have a nice cool place to rest after your surf.

 

There is also a smaller boat for transit back and forth from the wave out front, Monkeys, which allows to have the main boat at your disposal for all other surf breaks.
 


Other Activities


  • There is great snorkelling around the reef with some amazing sea life to be seen on the clear days.
  • Take out one of the stand up paddle boards for a calm flat water spin.
  • If you just want to relax, why not set up on the white sandy beach or just laze by the pool. They’re both great places to chill out or take a dip to cool down.
  • If you’re looking for things to do out of the water, Monleys Resort can organise one of their staff to take you on a fishing experience and catch dinner for the night.
  • There is plenty of long, white sandy beach to comb and take in some of the local serenity.
