Who has been there, Is anyone able to give some feedback? Good/bad ?
We went there at the start of November this year and I have to say our trip was awesome!! Its a real journey to get there, 3 flights and a boat ride but we had great waves everyday, lefts and rights, about 3' most days and usually had the breaks to ourselves. The resort itself was great and they have got it pretty well sorted out. The only small downside was that you spent all day out in the boat. Didn't bother me but if you are not a fan of boats then it might be an issue. I will definitley be going back.
Did you go via Singapore? Or where were tbe the flights from.
Hey Roadkill, not sure what city you’re flying from however I always go Sydney - Jakarta - Padang with Garuda. You can do the leg in 1 day and because it’s with Garuda you’ll get your boards transferred through.
We flew out of Avalon with Air Asia via KL. It was a night departure and we arrived in Padang at 7.30am and transferred to the flight out to the islands. We didnt have to overnight in Padang and the bags & boards were transferred straight through. We had 5 in our group and no board damage either way which was a bonus!
