During your stay at Kandui Villas®, your home will be one of 12 luxury umas, all hand-built by Mentawai craftsman. Each uma offers all of the comforts, privacy, and serenity you could expect from a stay with us. All of our hardwood umas are hand carved with local animal and nature themes, have a large private tropical land scaped yard with Japanese grass and private beach access, ocean views, and are fully air-conditioned with mosquito nets, mini-bars, in-room safes, hot water, hair dryers and bathroom amenities.

Our standard packages are for 10 or 11 night stays, with convenient and fast direct transportation to and from our island, if you come on our set schedule. If your travel schedule does not allow you to travel on our set schedule, then off schedule visits of longer or shorter stays are possible, but may require higher transportation fees for any off schedule transportation. It is a long journey to reach Kandui Villas®, but once you are here it is absolute paradise, and stays less than 10 nights are hardly enough time to rest from your travel, explore our island paradise, and surf all the perfect waves, indulging in everything Kandui Villas® has to offer and becoming a part of the Kandui Villas® family, which is why our standard packages are a minimum of 10 days.
