Mandiri Break is the latest surf resort to open its doors in South Sumatra. But take note, this isn't your run of the mill set-up.

This impressive beach side resort leans towards the semi upmarket tier thanks to its excellent air conditioned rooms and the sort of fine dining that's not previously graced this part of Sumatra. Azra, the owner, is very hands on, and has over 10 years experience working around the world in both traditional kitchens and aboard luxury yachts. Lets just say, its certainly somewhere you can bring your wife and kids.

On your doorstep, guests will find South Sumatra’s premier beach break - Mandiri. Guests can surf all day long right out the front, or jump in the complimentary van and take a ride with the surf guide to hunt down the days best spots.

Visiting the local village of Krui
Pulau Pisang (banana island) – fantastic snorkeling, fishing & also has great surf!
Excursion to Lake Ranau the second largest lake on Sumatra
River boat trips
