Simeulue-Surflodges
Reviews (6)
4.5 out of 5

All stays include: three meals per day, free coffee, tea, juices and water, airport pick up and drop off.

Simeulue to Surflodges is a chilled out relaxed spot right on the ocean and a 100M walk away from the best spot on the island: Dylans. A nice hollow righthander breaking over reef.

We have three cabanas available, a treehouse and the mainhouse bedroom. We also have our own saltwater pool with sundeck and a watchtower to chill and watch the surf. Breakfast, lunch and diner is included in your stay!

Location

On the west coast of the island, right next door to the best spot on the island: Dylans, a nice and hollow righthander. Right in front of the ocean, a secluded hide away under the palm trees. Easy and relaxed! Close to a small and cosy town (well it's just one street) but has a small shop to do some basic shopping.

You must fly to Medan and get a flight on to Simeulue. Flights to Simeulue take around 60 minutes. There are several flights per day. You can book with If your departure date is over 2 months they may not have dates up yet.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

I stayed at simeulue surf lodges nearly the entire month of November. One of the most beautiful places I've been so far, the ocean is about 60 meters away and the local surf spot about 100/150 meters. Although the surf was small we managed to get in the water every day and found some good ones.The resort itself is small and cosy and it can accommodate a maximum of 10 people and has a common area with an outside deck where we sat in the afternoon most of the time and had our meals. We also had a car for touring, a quick walk to Dylans and Bintangs at night. Yenny cooks great food, the lobster as an extra is well worth it. Lots of lovely food, cakes, juices all day long and fresh water in the rooms and to our surprise, a western toilet. We especially loved the evenings at the pool, cool drinks, great food and the best view and sunset you can find. Roy and Yenny, thanks ever so much for taking such good care of us. Hope to see you guys again!

This is a great place to stay if you are looking for best waves, great location and hospitality. My friends and I stayed at Simelue Surflodges in August 2018. When I got there Roy and Yenny were fantastic, so nice, very helpful and kind. Yenny's cooking is absolutely amazing, lovely cakes and drinks all day long and she even cooks meals upon request. One night we had an great barbecue with fresh fish, chicken and even lobster. Most enjoyable also because of the stunning sunset and scenery. Dylan's Right is a very consistent break that works almost every day. There are loads of turtles hanging around the break, diving is also amazing along the whole shoreline and in front of the surflodge. The waterfall hike is also a great thing to do and so is exploring the island via motorbike. We also enjoyed spear-fishing in a bay nearby. Really enjoyed my stay and in fact the whole booking experience. Quick response and very helpful in every way.

Overall we had a great stay and will most definitely come back next year!

This is by far the best place to relax and surf nearby. We were met at the airport by the manager Roy and he took great care of us during our stay. His wife Yenny cooks the best meals and since my friend is a vegetarian, she made vegetarian meals just as easy, no problem at all. Even had a lovely barbecue (lobster!) with the most stunning sunset I’ve ever seen. The rooms were small but very comfortable. The locals are very friendly, authentic Indonesian atmosphere.

There are a lot of breaks that can be surfed and easily reached but Dylans, the best wave of the island, was right on our doorstep! The only downfall was the lack of a functional internet (except Whatsapp), but that's the about the only trade-off for this beautiful island. And although there are more surf camps on the island which are all ok, there is no better place than Simeulue Surf Lodges especially with regards to position and amazing sunset. Hope to be back someday!

How did you like the accommodation?

     

The surf lodges near Dillan’s surf break are in an ideal location directly in front of Dillan’s. They are a short moped right to several others and a boat right there at the lodge can take you to other surf breaks nearby.

Accommodations range from Rustic to non-rustic with air conditioning.


How were the surf lessons?

     

Surf lessons not ideal. My instructor, while a good surfer, could not speak enough English to be helpful.

Me and my friend had a fantastic stay and although we were there off-season, January, we still had nice waves for the whole time. We surfed Dylans, right next door, and also a few lesser known spots. On rainy days we watched some of the endless (surf) movies available in the common room, on lazy days we hung out in the natural salt water pool but on most days we surfed the break just around the corner from the surflodge.

Snorkelling nearby through the keyhole is great, the local swimming beach is stunning and the local people so friendly. The co-owner Nils was most helpful and very quick to reply, including lots of tips about best way to get to the island. This is a trip I will never forget.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Simeulue is an island of tropical beaches and friendly local people. It’s like time has came to a stand still, there’s no wifi and nothing more to do than surfing, snorkelling and enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

The resort was fantastic. Small and simple complex overlooking the ocean. The hosts Roy and Yenni were great and they helped with whatever I needed. The food was fantastic, with both local and western meals 3 times a day. Motorcycle, boat, car rental can be arranged through Roy. Give as much notice as possible, as sometimes the boats can be "full".

And although the rooms were small and simple, they were very clean and really all you could need. All and all I had a great stay!

Dylans Right

Level: All Levels

Surfing Simeulue is nature at its best. Simeulue is located around 120km from the west coast of Sumatra. While Nias, the Mentawais and other places around Sumatra are already pretty well known amongst surfers, Simeulue is still very unknown and therefore not overloaded with crowds!

Many spots remain unknown and also nameless, but search and you will definitely find! From lefts to rights, shallow barreling reef breaks to also deep water reef and beach breaks. Some options;

DYLANS RIGHT:
Next to our door is probably the best break on the island, called Dylans, or Dylans Right or Dylans Point, at only a 100m walk. A powerful right hander with hollow tubes and a long ride.

One Thong

Level: Intermediate

Just around the corner, picks up swell almost 365 days a year. When all is small, this is the one to choose! A fun right hander

T-Bags

Level: Advanced

In front of the resort lies an island which holds a very heavy break, called Tea Bags, it’s a powerful right (reef). Ask Roy, our manager, to arrange a short boat trip to the island of Tapah when the swell is up!

Jackals

Level: Intermediate

Grab a bike and head north, only a short ride away is a break called Jackals, very consistent and has lefts and rights, breaking over a reef, combined with sand and rocks..

Thailand

Level: Intermediate

A fun left hand reef break with challenging sections. Holds up huge swells and is suitable for longboard as well as shortboard. Take a beautiful ride by motorbike around the coastline and then grab a local boat for about 4 minutes.

UNDISCOVERED SPOTS:

Level: All Levels

Because of the remoteness of Simeulue and the lack of mass tourism, you can still search for breaks that are unnamed and undiscovered..we know some and will let you in on some secrets of the island..but what better way then to take your motorbike and search, find and surf..!
