About us

Monkeys Resort

An eco friendly resort in an idyllic bay.
You can stay remote but with our first-class cuisine, service & well-appointed bungalows, you don’t have to feel remote.

The newly built Monkeys Resort is a luxury Telo Islands’ surf resort in Sumatra Indonesia providing better access to premier Telo island waves than ever before. Now you can access the wave Monkeys straight from your Villa by boat or paddle out. Gone are the days spent sitting all day in a boat. Have a surf, head back to your villa for breakfast, take a rest and then head out again. It’s the easiest days of surfing you’ll ever have.

 This is not just a Telo island surf camp but a luxuriously appointed Telo Island resort with your own private well-appointed air-conditioned villa with ensuite bathroom. All boat transfers to waves are included as well as accommodation, three meals, snacks and water each day. Everything is looked after for you, so all you have to do is think about that next turn!

The Villas

All guests stay in large luxury beachfront villa overlooking our premier surf break “Monkeys”.


We have a range of non-surfing activities to keep the whole family entertained for the entire trip.


The resort has permanent surf photographers onsite ready to document your epic waves!


Accessing the waves each day has never been more comfortable or faster on one of our resort boats.

Food & Dining

Our delicious meals are prepared by one of the most experienced chefs in the Telos, Max. He has worked at other resorts in the area for over 8 years, and knows what hungry surfers expect every day! It’s vital to be well fuelled for a day’s surfing and replenished and re-energised for the next day.

The lounge and dining area in the resort allows you to join and mingle with other guests or chill out in a corner by yourself. There’s plenty of room, and the dining area includes dining, tv lounge area and bar.  The cuisine is a combination of local Indonesian culinary delights with some of the best Western style meals.


You can expect to wake up to a barista made coffee to your liking and an array of cereals, eggs, toast and fruits. You can enjoy a nice meal for lunch or you may sooner have a simple fresh wrap with chicken or fish with salad. 


Freshly squeezed juices are available and of course you can purchase alcohol at any time. Dinner is a feast of chicken, fish, beef and vegetable dishes that will make each night a unique dining experience.

Our Boats

Taking you to the waves

Getting to the waves each day has never been more comfortable. The Monkeys Resort 11m speedboat is powered by 2×250 horsepower engines and travels at an average speed of 25 knots ensuring you get to your destination quickly and smoothly. We have a smaller boat that we use for transit back and forth from Monkeys which allows us to have our main boat at your disposal at the break everyday.

because we are more than a surf spot

The main attraction of Monkeys Resort is the great surfing you can do in the Telo Islands region. But there are many more activities for those after the surf or the non-surfers. There is great snorkelling around the reef with some amazing sea life to be seen on the clear days or you could take out one of the stand up paddle boards for a calm flat water spin.
