We visited Puri Asu earlier this year and were not disappointed. I travel with my wife and over the years we've visited some great camps in Indonesia but we've also endured some bad experiences. Lucky Puri Asu lived up to our expectations (which are pretty normal!). Everything was great - the accommodation was exceptional (superior package) - but the standard accommodation was pretty decent too. The food was some of the best we've had in Sumatra. Possibly the best. Seriously good. The owner Steve was there during part of the trip. Very friendly and helpful. The island itself is incredible and the beach had the most amazing sand I think Ive even touched. Its like a velvet scrub. The snorkeling out the front of the resort was also excellent. There were 2 SUP's to use which also kept the wife busy lol. Again, the reason we stayed was for the surf. The resort is about 5 mins (boat) from an amazing left hander Asu. I'd say an experienced surfer would be most suitable. Definitely no beginners as it only really gets going until its over head. But wow, a great wave and very uncrowded. There arent a tonne of other spots but what the waves are all legit and all uncrowded which is a rare thing these days. We'll return for sure.…
Every day surfing ! CONSTANTLY .and not crowded .Top wave in Sumatra 100%. Really comfortable rooms . Food is Excellent . FANTASTIC atmosphere right on the beach ASU is a real Paradise . I recommend to All.
This is like the ultimate surf trip. Perfect and heavy waves with no crowds. Very clean and good accomodation and the food is delicious. Alemao and his team go the extra mile to make sure all the guests have a great time. Although surf is the focus they have high quality scuba diving gear and there is plenty fish around. Right in front of their beach the coral reef is very impressive and you can spend hours enjoying the beauty of it. Many waves available with Asu right at thee corner. They also now have Jet Ski for Tow In surfing which is amazing. If you want tomspend an awesome time this is the place to go.
Extremely special place - for how isolated it is all the creature comforts are available, staff is friendly, island is awesome and most important - so are the waves! To all visitors do remember respect is a 2-way street!!! Respect all the staff and surrounding village workers!! DO NOT THINK YOU BETTER THEN THEM!! They work hard and so do you to get to stay there. Have fun, treat them right and Puri Asu will feel your good vibes and will follow suit with great energy to you!!
