    Facilities &
    Activities
     


    Locally designed & built the 2 storey open air pavillion sits a stones throw from the beach. Sit and watch the waves roll by or grab a beer and enjoy those famous Indonesian sunsets as it sets directly in front of you. On the ground floor is the kitchen, river stone bar and jati dining tables whilst upstairs provides an elevated view of the waves and surrounding mountains.

    Activities include billiards, table tennis as well as satellite TV for those who can’t miss their football, rugby, AFL, news etc.

    Our bar is stocked with all soft drinks & a variety of beers. Fresh juices can also be made. Out of respect to local laws we don’t sell spirits but are happy to mix your duty free drinks for you.

    We understand the importance of COLD drinks and ensure we always have plenty, we have a large freezer and fridge stocked full for our guests and visitors.

    Tea & coffee is also available.

    There is also a small shop where you can purchase snacks like peanuts, chips, chocolate & ciggies.

    Basic toiletries are also available.

     
    Things to do
     


    Besides the waves in the area, this part of Sumatra still provides an insight into traditional coastal village life. No disco’s or bars, no pushy hawkers trying to sell you things, no maca’s or kfc. Guests often tell us that once here they can feel the stress of life back home wash away as they sink into the Indonesian pace of doing things, which isn’t real fast. You definitely wont die of stress out here.

    Do as much or as little as you like, we can help you get to anywhere you want to go.

    At Damai Bungalows we try to involve the local communities as much as possible. We can hook you up with nessecary info & local drivers/guides to take you to the various attractions, such as:

    • local villages & markets
    • guided village walks
    • national park trips with elephant rides
    • any traditional weddings/ceremonies that may be happening
    • searching out remote beaches & reef

    SNORKELING & SPEARFISHING, just down from Damai Bungalows are sheltered reefs within walking distance for you to explore. We have some gear but best you bring your own.

    FISHING, is slowly becoming a welcome addition to our activity list. Both Amin & Jason regulary head out trolling or jigging, we are slowly plotting more reliable spots for different species. Typically we catch Spanish Mackeral, Tuna & Marlin when in season. GT’s & Snapper can be jigged from the deeper reefs. Damai Bungalows has its own local style boat for hire for early morning or afternoon sessions. We do have some equipment however its best to bring your own. If packing fishing gear include your rod & reel, trolling lures, jigs, poppers, soft plastics etc.

    It’s a fantastic experience cruising the reefs as the sun rises over the mountains and your reel starts screaming after being smashed by dinner.

     
    Food
     


    Good meals are a huge part of any holiday. Ayu is a fantastic cook and personally ensures all of our meals are plentiful & varied enough so nobody gets bored.

    Vegetarians can be catered for. Other specific dietry requirements will be assessed as they arise as long as PRIOR notification is provided before your arrival.

    Chilli fiends need not worry, just ask Ayu or the staff to make you up a sambal that’ll blow your head off if thats your thing.

    We have a well equipped kitchen allowing our staff to cook fresh produce into tasty meals.

    Hot breakfastsBreakfasts are able to be selected each day, available options normally include fried rice/noodles, eggs & toast, jaffles, omlettes, pancakes as well as juice, tea & coffee.

    Indonesian style mealsWe are mainly geared towards tasty indonesian dishes with fresh chicken, fish or beef curries, beef rendang & sate chicken are all accompanied with market fresh vege’s & rice. Fresh fish & chicken bbq’s (indo style) with all the trimmings prove popular as well.

    Western style dishesWestern dishes include crumbed schnitzel, pasta, bbq/fried chicken, pizza, sandwiches & oven baked vege’s providing ‘some tastes from home’ .

    Meal requestsWe only cater for a maximum of 12 guests at a time which means we can often decide with our guests what they might like to eat and we can then create meals by request. If you have suggestions for us, let us know, we’re always happy to add to the list of delicious dishes we can provide.

    Snack barWe provide a bar snack menu available to visitors & guests alike who may wish to eat outside of meals provided.
