Kingfisher Mentawai Resort is the ultimate island getaway. This stunning resort offers three private bungalows overlooking one of the best left-hand surf breaks in the world, Lances Left. Kingfisher Mentawai Resort is perfect for surfers and non-surfers alike, a gorgeous destination to escape the everyday, swapping commutes to work with days relaxing on the white sandy beaches, surfing world-class waves and exploring the pristine waters off the island.
With a lush jungle backdrop, Kingfisher Mentawai Resort is located on the beautiful Sipora Island, with plenty to do on and offshore. Do as little or as much as you like, whether it’s snorkelling, fishing, stand-up paddleboarding, biking, hiking, or just relaxing in a hammock with a good book.
Surfers will love the vast selection of waves on offer, with 10 different waves within a 20-minute boat ride from the resort, with fun beach breaks, long lefts and rights and barrel perfection. Everyone is catered for, from beginners looking for surf lessons, to more intermediate surfers. The best part, only nine surfers can be at the resort at any one time, which means more waves for you!
With panoramic views of the world-class Lances Left, Kingfisher Mentawai Resort consists of three traditional-style luxury beachfront bungalows and one modern luxury suite with a private plunge pool. Each bungalow is air-conditioned and fan-cooled, perfect for those hot sunny Mentawai Island days. Hot showers and western-style bathrooms are featured in every bungalow.
Just steps from the white sandy beach, the bungalows have spacious terraces with comfortable chairs where you can listen to the birds and doze off after a long day out in the surf. The private bungalows can accommodate up to four people, with a maximum of 12 guests at one time. We recommend booking all four bungalows with some friends, and having the whole resort to yourself!
Kingfisher Mentawai Islands restaurant is buffet-style, catering for a range of taste and appetites. With a focus on fresh fruits and vegetables, the restaurant serves a variety of cuisines including Western, Indonesian, Chinese and BBQ.
The restaurant is one of the highlights of Kingfisher Resort, a place where you can catch the island breezes, and feast, while watching your friends get barrelled at Lances Left. With beautiful views of the adjacent bay, this is the perfect place to unwind after a long day exploring the island.
Another great location to kick back and relax is the beach bar and swimming pool. Grab a healthy smoothie or juice, coconut or cold beer, and cool off in the swimming pool which features sunk in bar stools. Let’s not forget that it is also an awesome vantage point to watch all the action out at Lances Left!

Kingfisher Mentawai Resort is located in an extremely wave rich region with 10 different waves within a 20 minute boat ride. With such an extensive selection to choose from; fun beach breaks, long lefts and rights, barrel perfection and heavy slabs… all levels and appetites are catered for at Kingfisher Mentawai Resort.
Lances is the epitome of the classic Indo wave, a very long, superbly shaped wave that is renowned for being one of the most consistent locations in the Mentawai islands. Several take off zones means more waves for everyone, and with a relatively easy entry during take off it’s little wonder Lances is such a regular crowd pleaser. At three feet expect long, peeling, lined up walls perfect for pushing the limits on your turns, but also be on the lookout for two distinct barrel sections depending on swell direction. At six feet and above be prepared for corduroy lines stacked to the horizon. The wave transforms into a steep, deepwater takeoff with big open faces down the line.
Although not the most prolific barrel producing wave in the Mentawai, it’s length and variations through different sections mean all levels of ability can enjoy Lances. Also a great place for intermediate surfers to push themselves into bigger waves.
