An unparalleled surf and adventure destination, Indonesia fuses a territory of 17,000 uncharted islands with paradisical beaches, verdant forests with teeming wildlife, friendly locals and waves that are the epitome of perfection.
Treat yourself to a stay in one of the most celebrated surf resorts in the world, resting on a small tropical island in the heart of Northern Mentawai. Lounge between surf sessions in cosy and spacious Mentawai-style huts (uma) built of sustainably sourced hardwoods by local craftsmen. Arise to the sound of the ocean and views of the surrounding islets, then jump on a quick boat ride to your spot of choice and think of nothing else but getting barrelled – the right place for those who want up their game.
Extend your Mentawai trip beyond surfing and join one of the cultural experiences. Visit local villages for a glimpse of their reality, or meet an Indonesian shaman and witness a unique spiritual ceremony filled with dance and music that will put our western way of life into perspective. Can’t stay out of the water? Join a snorkelling or fishing tour. Or merely lay back and relish the tranquillity at the beach with a book in hand.
Meet the safety and comfort of modern sailing with the charm and atmosphere of ancient, hand-crafted boatbuilding in one of our luxury sailing ships.

Hop aboard a kayak to explore the surrounding landscape and feel the tropical forest alive with orchids and wild birds. Embark on a voyage to the island of Papua and step into the world’s second-largest rainforest to be in awe with the diversity and rarity of fauna and flora.
Have your mind blown by the contrasting landscapes, ranging from lush valleys to paradisical beaches and snow-capped mountains.
