Aloita Resort & Spa
Sumatran Surfariis is proud to be part of the Mentawai's nicest resort, the ALOITA RESORT & SPA. Aloita is uniquely situated on a small private island called Simakakang, less than 10 minutes away from Tua Pajet, the capital of the Mentawais. It is well connected to the Sumatran mainland by regular ferry and speedboat services. However, because it's tucked away in it's own little corner means the privacy and seclusion of the guests in this island paradise is secure.
There are several world class waves within a short speedboat ride of the resort, including the famous lefthander Telescopes. Aloita is also well positioned so guests can make surgical strikes to the waves in the Playground area to the north and Peninsula (Lance’s) area to the south. Scuzz has also pioneered a few secrets in the area, including a couple waves you can paddle to right off the island.
The location of Aloita was also selected due it it's proximilty to some of the best dive zones in the Mentawais. Dive trips to this region are a relatively new thing, so you’ll be able to view reefs and the creatures of their habitat in a very pristine state. The water is crystal clear and the ocean is alive with a huge variety of different types of reef, vegetation, and sea life. Aloita has the only true dive center in the Ments, with all the necessary gear and qualified instructors for even a beginner to become a certified diver. Many of the best SCUBA and snorkeling areas in the Mentawais are right near the resort, including the spectacular reefs in and around Setan Island.
The resort itself consists of 7 large air-conditioned double bungalows, plus 1 even larger family (or group) bungalow, each with their own private rear courtyard . Each bungalow is clean, new, and extremely well appointed, and each is just steps from over a mile of private, untouched, white sand beach. The use of local hardwoods is abundant throughout the bungalows, and each room includes a spacious bathroom tiled with Esenza granite with a hot water shower inside AND an additional outdoor shower for that true island experience. Each bungalow has a front terrace that overlooks approximately one kilometer private beach exclusive to Aloita . The Spa, which is the first of its kind in the Mentawais, is equipped with 3 treatment rooms backing onto an enclosed waterfall and fishpond. The sounds of water splashing over the rocks will glide you into a deep relaxation during your massage or other spa treatment. We will also soon be incorporating a yoga base with traveling instructors, which is a perfect fit for this relaxing environment. The wonderful A Bar has a front deck which projects over the water at high tide and comes complete with chill out lounges, cool tunes, ping pong tables, and a wide range of beverages and barsnack menu Reports from our early guests are saying, “it’s like a 5 star hotel”, with the bungalows, food, restaurant/bar, and speedboats being way beyond expectation.
So, as you can see, the Aloita Resort and Spa is far more than just a surf camp. It’s the ideal setting for couples, families, surfers, divers, and travelers that want a multi-faceted land experience, with quite a bit of luxury thrown in the mix. We are also able to offer the entire camp for exclusive groups of up to 18 guests, so this is an ideal setting for a company retreat or large family reunion. Our rates are extremely fair considering the wide offering our resort provides for you, and we really hope you’ll come and stay with us soon. Please feel free to contact us to book, or ask any questions you might have.
