We provide you with access to surf, marine, and jungle adventures and we give back through initiatives that achieve positive social, environmental, and economic impact in the Simeulue and Banyak landscapes.

Bungalows & Villas constructed from up-cycled materials, re-incorporating traditional antique structures, guests can relax in comfort and style, knowing we have taken every precaution to minimize our ecological impact.

In addition to surfing, we offer SUPing, fishing, birdwatching tours, snorkeling, yoga, motorbike riding, island hoping, waterfall, riverwalks, Sinabang food market and enjoying our pitch-and-put golf course and volleyball court. Often at nighttime we have movie nights, too. You can also participate in any programs offered through Mahi-Mahi Surf Resort focused primarily on turtle conservation, but also on activities focused on promoting sustainability, such as organic gardening and composting, species surveying, marine debris surveying, and land-use management.

Double Room

Top-floor double rooms with private semi-outdoor bathrooms, ceiling fans, A/C, hot showers, and mosquito nets are good for couples and those desiring more space. Antique wood and bamboo thatched roofing provides a cozy, yet tropical feel. An outdoor veranda gives you a view of the gardens, golf course, and of course - the peak, making it easy to surf and relax. Single rooms are also available.

Villas/Deluxe Rooms

A pair of two story villas, fully equipped with A/C, hot showers, refrigerators, lounge rooms, ceiling fans, and mosquito nets are available for private groups, families, or companies of up to 9 people/villa looking for a space to have a retreat.

There are a number of communal areas for guests to enjoy. The Joglo, a large open area made from traditional teakwood, is where all meals are enjoyed, and is equipped with a projector for movie nights, a stereo, cosy lighting, comfortable sofas and bean bags, board games and books, and of course - a view of the peak. There are two bar tops for dining, a fire-pit for bonfires, a 9 hole pitch-and-put golf course, a volleyball court, and the main highlight - an infinity swimming pool right in front of the peak!

Surfing

Situated in the doldrums just above the equator, Simeulue is not affected by trade winds, meaning winds are most often light, gifting favorable conditions for surfing. This makes Mahi-Mahi Surf Resort a year-round surf trip destination. The Peak – the most consistent wave on the island – is in front of the resort and viewable from all rooms and common spaces, but is only one of many surf options.

Scuba Diving & Snorkeling

Simeulue’s underwater world, up until now, has remained a secret. Unexplored, we are pioneering the dive industry in the area. When talking about scuba diving in Indonesia usually well-known places such as Komodo, Sulawesi, Pulau Weh and Raja Ampat come to mind, now you can add to that a little island off the north west coast of Sumatra that can offer the Indonesian experience of 20-30 years ago.

Mahi Mahi is perfect for the first time diver as well as the advanced diver to discover some of the best diving Sumatra has to offer. Beautiful secluded and sheltered bays bordering pristine tropical beaches perfect for introductory diving and open water courses. Coral pinnacles rising from the depths, big walls with deep structures allowing for a diverse range of dives including, night, drift, deep and adventure dives. Tidal currents provide a constant flow of nutrients which are idyllic for soft coral growth and diverse fish life. The deep depths of the Indian Ocean surrounding Simeulue help keep consistent visibility of around 20-25m and rarely dropping below 15m. Diving is good year round with a consistent water temperature of around 30C becoming a bit cooler at the end of September start of October.

We have phenomonal biodiversity of aquatic life. Pilot whales, dolphins, green/hawksbill/leatherback turtles, reef sharks, eagle/marble/blue spotted lagoon rays, different species of moray eels, garden eels, anemone ‘gardens’ with a variety of different anenome fish, schools of moorish idols, red-toothed trigger fish, fusiliers, parrotfish, batfish, long toms, tuna, mackerel, giant trevally, potato cod, lion fish, glass fish, parrot fish, damsel fish, gorgonian fans, nudibranchs, octopus etc.

The boat is a 3 min drive away and it takes us approx. 20-25 min to get to our dive sites. 1 – 2 dives can be done in half a day.
