Kandui Villas® consists of nine luxury umas, and one triple uma – which is three regular-sized luxury umas connected together, for a total of 12. Each uma is quite large at 7.5 meter wide x 10.5 meters long. Each uma has two king-sized beds downstairs, and one king sized – or two single sized beds – in a spacious, second-story loft. The umas are hand carved throughout with a different Mentawai animal, or jungle theme, and all the furniture is made of local hardwoods. Each uma comes with two air-conditioning units, so guests can adjust their personal comfort level.
Eleven of the umas already have names. 1. Biowak (monitor lizard). 2. Monyet (monkey). 3. Ikan (fish) 4. Kura (turtle). 5. Burung (bird). 6-8. The triple uma is called ‘Sikerei’ (shaman). 9. Buaya (crocodile). 10. Lumba (dolphin) 11. Utan (jungle). 12. Koat (Wave).
The back one-third of each uma is built on a massive cistern which holds close to 10,000 gallons of rain water. The bathroom and shower facilities are clean and comfortable, with stone floors laid by craftsmen from Bali.
Each of the 12 umas are confirgured, with 3 king sized beds, or 2 king sized, and 2 double beds, making them very versatile with room for 1-4 people, making the Umas perfect for singles, couples, groups of friends, or families.
