This place was next level amazing! The location is spectacular. The wave straight out the front was as good as I have ever surfed. The accommodation was spot on. And the people were happy, friendly and super helpful. I would HIGHLY recommend a stay here. Had the most amazing time! Highlights- surfing the peak in 4-6ft clean conditions on several occasions, getting barrelled at Teabags on our last day. Eating the most amazing food 24/7. Watching the sunset over the water with an icy cold bintang in hand. Riding a buffalo :-)

I was supposed to stay 2 1/2 weeks at Mahi Mahi but loved it so much I extended for another 2 1/2 weeks. The location could not be better. Waking up in the morning, you just have to walk onto your balcony to check the peak. The location is unbeatable. The facilities are great. The infinity pool is the greatest for a sunset spot. The twice daily yoga classes on offer and unique pool table mean there’s plenty to do when you’re not surfing. The staff are great. Chris was always making sure everyone was having a good time. The surf guide, Jay was awesome. He has such good energy and can get on with anyone. He has so many tips for the surf and the patience of a saint. On the odd day the conditions at the peak aren’t great or you want a different wave they have a couple of vans and drivers to take you where you want to go when you want to go. The drivers are such great people, always trying their best to make jokes in broken English. They also have scooters available to use to do your own exploration. They told me the food was good but seriously. It’s great! I’m gluten free (coeliac) and the girls in the kitchen did such a wonderful job accomodating my dietary requirements. I didn’t get any symptoms or sickness. They even made me a special gluten free chocolate slice. The room is minimalist but super comfortable. The showers are hot and have great pressure. The beds are comfortable and again, the views spectacular. It’s not easy getting things done in small, remote islands, especially after being closed for so long with COVID. These guys have done a great job creating a slice of paradise for surfers. Highly recommend!

Just returned from Mahi-Mahi resort ,spending 21 days .the trip was awesome ,we had great surf on the peak , and at Dylan's down the road . The accommodation was fantastic , and the food was awesome. The pool and deck set up is amazing. Lise and Chris made us very welcome , and Chris was the perfect surf guide in and out of the water. Plenty of bikes to use any time and two vans to take us any where any time . I'm 60 yrs old , and managed my first barrel , my son on the other had may have had at least 20 . We will be be back next , thanks to all the staff , Cheers Peter jaspers.

I booked an introduction to scuba experience today, and had the absolute time of my life! I'm on a beautiful remote island here in Sumatra with white sand beaches, coral reefs and gorgeous tropical scenery. Chad, a really chill Australian, took me out for my first scuba experience. He is incredibly patient, really calm, and introduced me to a whole new world that I'm very excited to dive into, pun intended. I enjoyed this so much that I plan on getting scuba certified back home, then coming back in a few months so he can take me and my fiance on a great guided tour of the underwater world here. Thanks Chad, you're awesome!

It was a beautiful 2 month stay with my boyfriend. Great please to retreat and reflect, super nice calm stay without big city life or touristic distractions, wave sounds and raw nature. Mahi-Mahi has wonderful caring hosts, who make sure that guests have there best time. and the FOOD... food is delicious! Surf, yoga twice a day, golf and beach volleyball opportunity and the best swimming pool time with the sunset views. We had jungle hikes and 2 diving and snorkeling trips to paradise islands close to Simeulue. That was Lit!

Stayed there for two months and made my first steps in surfing there! So many good surfing spots around the island and the consistent wave just in front of the resort! Super friendly staff, great food, beautiful and clean rooms and generally great atmosphere in the resort! Would definitely recommend to anyone and I will definitely go back there!

Mahi-Mahi surf resort is paradise! I was there for 16 days at the end of December and it was the best vacation of my life. (I’m a 27 year old solo female traveller) The resort: It is located right on the beach with every room having a sea view. The grounds are very well kept and everything looks amazing. The water buffalos that groom the grass and the goats hanging out around the resort also give the place a special feel. The pool is so nice. It is a great spot to relax and cool down during the day and the perfect sunset watching spot for the evenings. The resort does have internet and it is quite good but only in the dedicated area. (you are here for fun in the sun anyway, not to be on your phone). The rooms: The rooms are super clean and pretty. They provide beach and bath towels as well as soap, conditioner and shampoo. That’s very useful and appreciated when you are only travelling with a backpack. They clean the rooms daily and for a very low price they can also do your laundry. Each room also has a porch or balcony so you can enjoy the resort with some privacy. The beds have mosquito nets and they also provide homemade mosquito repellent. The room also comes with a refillable water bottle which they refill for you every day. They really thought of everything! The food: The food is amazing! For breakfast you can choose from different options (banana pancakes, smoothie bowls…) with yummy coffee and tea. For lunch and dinner, they serve beautiful Indonesian food (not too spicy). It’s usually rice with fish or a meat and loads of nice veggies and tempeh. There is always a vegetarian option for those that want it. You can order soda or fresh coconuts for a small price. And the resort does have beer for sale which is nice while you enjoy the sunset in the pool. Surfing: I am intermediate level surfer and I had the best time ever. Make sure you bring reef booties because a lot of the breaks are very reefy. The surf guide will take you to the best place for your level. There is something for everyone on Simeulue! From beginner waves to barrels, from super steep drops to big fat slow waves. It’s all there! So even during low season, one can have loads of fun! Most importantly, you will be able to surf with close to 0 other people in the water. And that is a surfer’s paradise if I know any! They have boards for hire but the selection is not amazing so if you can bring your own boards do that. Otherwise, just contact the resort to ask in advance if they have what you need. They will do everything they can to accommodate you. I was able to hire a 6’2 with some volume which was amazing for my level. Other activities: There is snorkelling. Either you take a car to somewhere close to the resort or they can organize boat trips to nearby islands. Think perfect post card beach and then some! They also organize scuba diving trips, surf trips to other islands, and waterfall hikes to name a few. You can also use the scooters to go explore the island on your own. They also organize massages if you want one. Finally, they have yoga classes twice a day (7am and 4pm). They have the yoga shalla overlooking the ocean so it really creates a peaceful vibe. So if you are not a surfer, you will not be bored for sure! The staff: Everyone is so welcoming and friendly at Mahi-Mahi! They are just great human beings who want you to have a great vacation. Overall, Mahi-Mahi is an amazing place. I could not have had a better time all thanks to the amazing staff and beautiful island of Simeulue! I will be back for sure!

I’ve stayed here twice now and i’ll Be going back for sure. This is without doubt the best surf / eco lodge on the island. The facilities are very good, the pool is a luxurious touch, especially as it’s right in front of the most consistent surf break on the island. I really like the traditional Indonesian beach huts and the warm water is also a nice touch. You really can’t go wrong with Mahi Mahi.

Mahi Mahi is epic. If you know how to surf and do it for a good cause (turtle conservation) then it won't get better than this. You can do yoga sessions, go explore some amazing environments on the island and beyond, and of course most importantly: surf your soul out! It's fantastic, not only does the house break provide some of the most consistent waves on the island, but there's also a beach break right next to it if you'd like to practice in a somewhat less challenging spot first. I loved the hospitality, the fact that the entire island is pretty much still up to its original environmental and cultural status, the diversity of surf spots and also the incredibly delicious food. Everyone who works there is really friendly and helpful and the rooms are perfect.

We stayed at the Mahi Mahi resort for 4nights and really wished we could have stayed longer. The food was yummy, room had the best view and was keep super clean. Managed to get some fun waves, do yoga, explore the island and go on a snorkelling trip! Just perfect. I also have to mention the effort made to keep rubbish and plastic waste as minimal as possible and all of the conservation these guys are helping with on simeulue and surrounding islands! I am so happy that we stayed here and will be back soon! Aimee and Dan x
