Between the Telo Islands and Simelue, just 8kms offshore of Nias Island lies a tiny populated island that is both safe, beautiful with a world class left-hander.
Puri Asu Resort is the only resort-like accommodation on the island with a breathtakingly beautiful bay out the front as well as private jetty where they moor their 200hp wavehunting speed boat and 2x 50hp tender boats for waves a little closer to home.
The rooms are spacious and therefore comfortable with ocean views. The accommodation surrounds the main hub of the resort which is the restaurant and bar. It is here where guests can feel like they are on holidays, with ice cold Bintangs and the freshest of meals being provided 3 times a day.
This really is a tropical oasis, off the grid but still with enough remote access to call home.
Suited to the adventurous surfers looking to escape mundane & regular crowds. Bring your non-surfing partner who can simply switch off, read a book, go stand up paddle boarding, yoga sessions by the beach and everyones favorite.... cheap massages!
Only at Puri Asu Resort will you experience a true surf adventure accompanied by world class marine craft. The resort boasts a 200 hp surf transfer vessel for waves further afield...something the cheap surf camps in the area don't offer. Also throw in the mix 3x Jet skis for tow surfing or simply towing you back into the lineup after each wave and to top it all off 2x 50hp tenders used for sole use groups of 12-16 surfers who don't all want to cram onto one boat with boards.

There are multiple fight paths to Indonesia. Puri Asu Resort is located off the coast of Nias. Therefore an International flight to Medan with an overnight stay is recommended, before flying onto Gunung Sitoli (Nias main airport).
