Kingfisher Bay Resort gives you the opportunity to experience a strikingly original part of the world unlike anywhere you've ever been to or imagined; freakishly perfect waves, a completely unique and fascinating culture with a backdrop of idyllic palm fringed beaches and turquoise waters. As our name suggests, the resort is situated on the edge of an expansive bay, regularly frequented by stunning and acrobatic kingfisher birds, as well as a vast array of other wildlife including majestic sea eagles, large flying squirrels and pristine coral reefs teeming with sea life.
The natural beauty of the Mentawai Islands is the stage for what has become a mecca for surfers around the world, and with our dream location in front of Lances Left on the southern tip of Sipora Island, those tantalizing and seemingly out of reach fantasies of surfing breathtakingly perfect waves can become a reality! Fishing and snorkelling are catered for as well as a wide and varying range of activities on land. For the culturally curious, the local village provides a window into the lives of a race and people with a very different lifestyle to what most of us are familiar with. Get to know your friendly neighbours and hosts by joining in a woodcarving or weaving lesson under a palm tree or get involved in the daily volleyball match in the village. If all this sounds like too much activity, feel free to relax in a shaded hammock or catch the breeze in our open-planned restaurant, where drinks and food are available. Meals are prepared using fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and meats, cooked in a variety of styles including; Western, Indonesian, Chinese as well as barbeques. We consider great food and lots of it an integral part of an enjoyable experience, so meals are served buffet style to ensure even the most ravenous appetites will be satisfied.
Kingfisher Bay Resort is a gateway to a world of amazing waves, nature, culture and adventure. Let us and our ever helpful and smiling staff show you a truly memorable Mentawaian experience in all its remarkable diversity and uniqueness.

Keeping to the Mentawai theme, Kingfisher's restaurant is the centrepiece of the resort. From the spacious veranda you can take in the awe-inspiring, panoramic view of Lances Left and the adjacent bay. The open terrace design is perfect for catching even the slightest breeze, and perhaps a glimpse of the flying lizards and squirrels that are endemic to the Mentawai Islands.
A variety of beers and juices can be ordered from the bar, or you can lounge in the chill out area in mix of modern and driftwood furniture. DVD's, internet connection and daily surf photos can be utilized at your leisure, or simply get to know the people who you will be sharing adventures and waves with during your trip.
