The Banyak Islands are one of the last surf frontiers of Indonesia. Just north of Nias, the islands of Bangkaru (“Treasure Island”) and Tuangku (home of the “Bay of Plenty”) hold a number of world-class waves and there is still more exploring going on.
The Dream is designed for the total relaxation and comfort of our guests in mind. Each of our five large, private double bedrooms is air-conditioned and large beds (1.40m) are provided. To accomodate couples, we can also provide the option of one VIP room with a king-sized bed. We can accomodate up to 12 guests, as we have a spare room that sleeps up to 4 people. The Dream also features a comfortable, air-conditioned living room - a great spot to chill out with your mates and relive the best moments of the day, as well as an equipped kitchen and two bathrooms.
The Banyak Islands are one of the most remote surf destinations in Indonesia, and The Dream is one of just three surf charter boats located full-time in the region. That means uncrowded, world-class waves all season long. The archipelago is surfable throughout the year but the best conditions are from March to end of November. Average swell size ranges from 1 to 2.5m, and is most consistent from April to October. There aren't any surf shops in the Banyaks, so strongly consider bringing along a spare leash, fins, wax, and a repair kit.
Days on the Dream begin with a light buffet breakfast of cereals, fruit, toast, juice, coffee, and tea. After a morning surf, you will be served a proper breakfast that includes bacon, eggs, toasted sandwiches, pancakes, and homemade bread. Lunches and dinners are a mix of cuisines from around the world, featuring sushi, pizza, burgers, seafood, and, of course, dessert! Your hosts Nico and Pierre cook excellent European cuisine, to complement meals from the Indonesian chef.
