∧ How to get there:
To reach Mentawai, we first recommend flying to Padang international airport (PDG) in West Sumatra, easily reachable from Jakarta airport (CGK) via indonesian domestic airlines such as Lion Air, Garuda, Citilink, Sriwijaya, or with international flights from Singapore (SIN) or Kuala Lumpur (KUL). Once you arrive at Padang airport (PDG), we advise you to stay at a city hotel (we can book an hotel for you at an extra cost). The next morning, after you wake up at the hotel, our staff will guide you to catch a speed ferry boat, which will take you to Tua pejat port, in Sipora island, in 3 hours of travel. In the port, our private resort boat will be waiting for you to take you to the resort.
IMPORTANT: Arrival and departure from the resort must coincide with the fast ferry baot leaving Padang every Monday-Wednesday-Friday at 7am and arriving at Mentawai 3 hours later, returning from Mentawai is the same day at 15, with arrival at Padang at 18, fast shipping price 60 USD per person per way. As the fast ship departs at 7am, customers usually should get to Padang the day before.
∧ International Airlines:
∧ Domestic Airline from Jakarta to Padang:
∧ Average domestic flight price:
For domestic flights, average price between 40 and 100 € per trip.
∧ From the airport to the port of Padang or Hotel:
Extra Night at Padang Hotel: We can book a night at a hotel in Padang, with an extra cost (on request), all airport / hotel / port transfers, will be included. Taxy: It's the easiest and fastest way to move around Padang. When you arrive at Padang airport there will be many taxy waiting for you. Surfboards are not a problem for Indonesian taxi drivers.
∧ Health Care and Documents:
Most nationalities do NOT need a special visa to go to Indonesia (30 days on arrival). We always recommend to check the validity of your passport before traveling (at least 6 months validity from the scheduled return date) and to take various copies of your passport with you, if the original gets lost. There are not good hospital facilities in Mentawai, only small medical centers, we recommend traveling with an international travel insurance, in the emergency case of helicopter transfer to a bigger hospital.
