Aloita stands alone as the most refined and comfortable resort ever built in Indonesia’s Mentawai Islands. Everything you have heard regarding the world’s most desired surfing location is true. Now we can say the same for diving, fishing and a whole range of other marine activities.
Aloita is uniquely situated on a small private island called Simakakang, less than 10 minutes away from Tua Pajet, the capital of the Mentawais. We are well connected to the Sumatran mainland by regular ferry and flight services. However, because we are tucked away in our own little corner means the privacy and seclusion of our guests in this island paradise is secure.
There are several world class waves within a short speedboat ride of the resort, including the famous lefthander Telescopes. Aloita is also well positioned so guests can make surgical strikes to the waves in the Playground area to the north and Peninsula (Lance’s) area to the south. We also have a few secrets, including a couple waves you can paddle to right off the island.
Aloita is also the only true dive resort in the Mentawais, with all the necessary gear and qualified instructors for even a beginner to become a certified diver. Many of the best SCUBA and snorkeling areas in the Mentawais are right near our resort, including the spectacular reefs in and around Setan Island.
There are many other exciting activities around the resort, such as fishing, hiking, and cultural excursions. But if your goal is simply to relax, Aloita has you covered very well. Each bungalow is clean, new, and extremely well appointed, and each is just steps from over a mile of private, untouched, white sand beach. We have the only true spa facilities in the Mentawais, so our guests can get a massage or beauty treatment to wash their stresses away. Or you can just have a drink and watch the flat screen at our beautiful A Bar, which is perched just meters away from crystal clear water.
Aloita has something for everyone, from couples to large diving groups to the hardcore solo surfer. So come spend your next holiday with us, and let our friendly and hospitable staff show you why many people are now referring to Aloita as “THE Resort” in the Mentawais
