Aura Surf Resort


Just a quick 40 minute flight from Medan international airport gets you to the island, located off the coast of Northern Sumatra. After being greeted by one of our friendly staff, a 20 minute drive along the coast will bring you to your destination.

Set amongst 15,000 sqm of beachfront parkland with an epic Peak break right out front & a mountainous jungle as your backdrop. There are countless untouched beaches & stunning remote outer islands close by. Over 10 secret spots in the vicinity ranging from easy beachbreaks to reefs capable of holding 15 ft grinding barrels- with no crowds. This pristine location offers interest to every tropical surf traveller.

As well as being a great place to relax, the main building is also the restaurant. There is indoor and outdoor furniture, dining tables, couches, cable tv & dvd, a bookshelf loaded with surfing mags, books and boardgames.

The Waves

We are in a fortunate position of being geographically located in the doldrums- which means unlike other parts of Indo we do not rely on the trade winds. There is swell year round and we have this epic Peak (pictured) directly in front of the resort. There are numerous waves spread across the island, the majority breaking over coral reef, but also multiple beach breaks for those after something a bit more mellow. The most consistent wave on the island also happens to be right on your doorstep and can be clearly viewed from every room at the resort.

Food and Drink

While staying at Aura we ensure you stay fuelled and ready to surf by serving up healthy menu options using fresh organic ingredients sourced from local farmers. We serve an array of both Indonesian and western favourites and have vegetarian and vegan options that are sure to please. The fresh seafood grilled over hot coals with seasonal vegetables, salads, rendang curries, tacos, nasi goreng, spaghetti bolognaise and fruit platters are among our guests favourites. Our chicken and beef specialties ensure a healthy variety of dishes that make hearty meals and are real soul food.
