Playground Surf ResortResort in Mentawai Islands
Aura surf resort encompasses three traditional bungalows. Each bungalow has two rooms. Two of them can sleep four, while the larger one can sleep six – for a maximum of 14 guests.
The main house has a dining room and bar, satellite TV and DVD player. There is USB Internet access in the main house, but faster internet service close by in the local village.
Breakfast mixes fresh fruit, muesli, fruit juice, coconuts/coconut milk, and rice and eggs. Dinner consists of vegetables, chicken, fish, eggs, fruit, rice and Indonesian specialties. ASR provides unlimited fresh fruit and purified drinking water.
Aura has the only fiberglass speedboat to get you and your friends to world class waves comfortably and fast. Explore the island on your own or with your experienced guide. There are no crowds. None.
There are lots of places to explore, but the staple wave at Aura is The Peak, an Indonesian A-frame breaking directly in front of the camp.
To get to Monkey Trees, Teabags, Thailand’s and Secrets, Aura Surf Resort offers three surf patrol boats: A 27-foot speedboat can take ten guests at speeds of 30 knots. A nine-meter long, traditional wooden outrigger with a 25 horsepower Yamaha motor – for those who want to look for surf the old school way. And a Zodiac used for getting in close to the impact zone for filming.
Review: “I’ve been going to this island for ten years, and it never gets old. If you want a serious surf trip that is 100% surf focussed you can’t go past Aura. They have access to well over ten other waves on the island and the best local knowledge on the Island. Aura comes with a price tag, but when you are traveling half way across the globe for that epic surf trip, it’s worth paying slightly more to know you are in good hands, the best on the island with the best equipment.
