WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

  • Surfing Paradise:  The resort is located on the beach directly in front of Kandui Left, and its professional guides can take guests to any of the 20 plus waves that lie within a 30-minute speedboat ride from the Villas.
  • Homegrown: The Kandui Villas were designed and established by a tourist of this region, and the facilities and accommodation reflect a level of specialization that is difficult for big chain companies to pull off in such remote regions.
  • Responsible Business Practices: Instead of importing outside help, the Kandui Villas have always drawn on locals for assistance, injecting hundreds of jobs into the region. Owners have also worked to advance community service products, such as distributing clean drinking water filters to remote villages throughout the Mentawai Island chain.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Located at the surfing mecca known as the Playgrounds of the Mentawai Islands, home to some of the greatest surfing waves on the world, rests the Kandui Villas. The resort was designed to provide surfers and their families with a luxurious destination to return to after days spent surfing, and with spacious rooms and opulent facilities, the end result has certainly met the bill. Today, the Kandui Villas are more than just a home base for adventurous surfers, it is a haven of relaxation in and of itself, where guests can choose between big waves or lazy days spent basking under the inviting Indonesian sun.
