To get to Villa Mentawai you need to get a flight to Padang (PDG) in West Sumatra. You will need to travel through either Jakarta, Indonesia with Garuda Indonesia or Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with AirAsia.
In Padang you will take an early morning fast ferry over to the capital of the Mentawai, Tua Pajet. The trip will take approx. 3.5 hrs and is on a very comfortable and sturdy boat that the time will pass quickly.
From Tua Pajet you will be meet by a Villa Mentawai representative and taken the short 10-minute boat ride to your own private villa in Paradise.

How far is the nearest local township / shops?
Tua Pejat is just a short 10-minute boat ride away where you have access to many shops and services including grocery stores, pharmacy, bank / ATM, phone credit & local crafts.
When are meals served?
In short, whenever they are wanted as you have a private in house chef, Agus preparing three meals a day with local fresh produce and local culinary skills. You will never go hungry and all dietary needs are meet.
Are there waves for beginners, smaller kids and low intermediate surfers?
Great news is we have so many little reef set ups for all levels of surfer. Although reef breaks aren’t ideal learner set ups, we have some fun little beach breaks close by as well and with soft top boards and SUPs available they are very happy to share the surf stoke with anyone keen to learn.
Are there any mosquitos?
Yes, as with anywhere in the tropics but the good news is due to the Villa’s location there’s nearly always a nice breeze during the surf season so there really isn’t a problem with mosquitos. However, we do recommend that you bring repellent and cover up and dusk and dawn to ensure you are totally protected. There have been no cases of malaria in this part of the Mentawai for many years now.
Can I get a massage?
Great news is on the other side of the island a short 15 minute beach walk to you have a small boutique resort where you can go get a massage or alternatively we can bring a masseuse over from Tuapejat on occasions.
