Kandui® features twelve private bungalows, also known as traditional Mentawai uma's, using the finest quality local hardwoods. The uma's are intelligently designed, combining traditional Mentawai craftsmanship with modern day luxury and amenities.
The inspiration was to finally provide a place where a surf traveler could feel comfortable and confident enough to bring their significant other and families. At Kandui we offer the only infinity pool in Western Sumatra, as well as a restaurant, bar, game room and spa. A nanny service can be provided upon special request. Another outstanding feature at Kandui includes fresh organic vegetables grown in our Eco friendly garden. Locally caught seafood is also on the menu.
The Villas consist of nine luxury umas, and one triple uma - which is three regular-sized luxury umas connected together, for a total of 12. Each uma is quite large at 7.5 metres wide x 10.5 metres long. Each uma has two king-sized beds downstairs, and one king sized - or two single sized beds - in a spacious, second-story loft. The umas are hand carved throughout with a different Mentawai animal, or jungle theme, and all the furniture is made of local hardwoods. Each uma comes with two air-conditioning units, so guests can adjust their personal comfort level. Each of the 12 umas are confirgured, with 3 king sized beds, or 2 king sized, and 2 double beds, making them very versatile with room for 1-4 people, making the Umas perfect for singles, couples, groups of friends, or families.
“Kandui Left" and Baby Kandui are directly in front of the Kandui Villas and there are two dozen other spots within 30 minutes by fast boat, in all directions. For getting to the surf, Kandui has two, five-meter plastic dinghies, one 5.2 meter Kahajaya center-consul speed boat and four, 45-50 foot longboats for accessing the spots outside of Playgrounds: Hideaways, Nipussi, Burgerworld, E-Bay.
“Kandui Right" (AKA Rifles) is arguably the best right hander in the entire world. It can be up to 800+ yards long, with freight train tube after freight train tube from start to finish. Rifles is only six minutes from Kandui Villas and she's is a fast, perfect, barreling right-hander- a dream wave for natural footers.
The resort also offers a variety of theraputic massage to relax a sooth away sore muscles from travel, surf and everyday stress. "Lori Heuer" worked as one of the lead Masseurs at one of the top 5 spas in the world, Two Bunch Palms in Desert Hot Springs, Ca., for 13 years, kneading away the cares of the rich and the famous, such as Mel Gibson, and countless others. She will import those skills all the way to this remote corner of the world, and train the Kandui staff to give first class care to surfers who have been working themselves over on the reefs all day long, and to non-surfing guests who want some TLC!
The Kandui Villas restaurant is two stories, located directly next to the swimming pool and connected by a wooden deck which wraps around the pool and leads to a game room, bar, and palapa. Good food is vital to surfers burning calories in perfect waves under the tropical sun. The Kandui menu features local seafood caught by villagers and guests, but also a variety of Italian, Japanese, Mexican, Thai, Chinese, American, and Indonesian cuisine. Barbecues are also popular at Kandui, and all that protein is served alongside organically-grown vegetables from a massive green house on the property.
