The best holiday experience in a while - great place, awesome kiting spots and lovely hosts. I hope to be back soon.
We stayed at the resort, which is in a village a few kilometers outside of Banda Aceh. It's a very authentic and charming rural Indonesian countryside. The surrounding mountains, beaches and views are breath-taking and the kitesurfing spots are the best I have seen in SE Asia. You will need a scooter to get to most of the kiting spots, but in all likelihood you will be the only ones on the entire beach.
We stayed the "Villa Bungalow" and hanging in the hammock in the terrace surrounded by greenery was a great way to relax. The hosts treated us more like friends than customers. The dinners organized during our stay (once every few days) were delicious. The local eateries had a variety of Indonesian meals - our favorites were the Nasi Padang Kitchen and the avocado shakes available throughout the village.
Finally do keep in mind that Aceh is a state with Shariah law. In practice it means that women can not go to the beach in bikinis and alcohol is not sold everywhere (but you can get it). Once you accept these limitations, you're off to a really nice holiday at Aceh Kitecamp.
