No other organization can bring you to these remote locations and no other vessel can take you there in such luxury.

Resort Latitude Zero Summer Openings

Resort Latitude Zero is located in the Telo Islands off the coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The resort is set within a natural coconut garden on its own paradise island with clear, calm, aqua-toned waters lapping its shores. Our core philosophy and style is based on Queenslander-style comfort offering dynamic 270 degree ocean views, a large chill out lounge area, high ceilings, and 8 air conditioned bedrooms in each of our two houses. If you are looking for the perfect surf retreat, you’ve found it!

One of the few benefits of the US stock market in turmoil is the strength of the US dollar against the Australian dollar. In the last few weeks the US dollar has gained 1 against the Aussie dollar making a trip to Resort Latitude Zero as affordable as ever! With openings all summer and into fall now is the time to book your trip to the newest and best surf resort in North Sumatra!

Kandui Resort Late Season and 2011 Openings Now Available

Even though Kandui Resort is booked solid until November 6th there are still a few openings in the month of November for people looking to escape the crowds of summer and enjoy the lighter side of the Mentawai Islands. We also have the 2011 schedule available online at for those people and gorups interested in planning a trip early! At Kandui, we recommend planning your trip at least 6 months in advance, if not longer!

Kandui Resort offers a world entirely beyond time and obligations. For adventurous surfers looking for a free spirited, relaxing surfing vacation or surf holiday in the company of world class waves to everyday wanderers looking for a private paradise where time seemingly stands still – this is it! Hidden among the palms on this remote island are just 7 traditional Mentawai "umas" offering solitude and luxury, we are located in one of the most sought after locations in the world!

Tavarua Resort – Year-Round

Tavarua Resort is located on its own heart-shaped island, a quiet sanctuary hidden among the Fijian island chain. The island can accommodate an average of 36 guests each week and is typically reserved for whole group bookings. Antidote Travel has created this special “Events” section to help connect people interested in going to Tavarua with groups when there is a chance of availability. We look forward to greeting you with a friendly “Bula! Welcome to Tavarua!

Tavarua Resort books the island out for one week (seven nights) at a time. Actual bookings are handled by Tavarua Island Tours. Each week a “Group Leader” who is your main point of contact works to balance the week with compatible people. That way if you are traveling with your family, chances are you will find a week with other families, couples with other couples, etc… Antidote Travel has created a special “Events” section to help connect people interested in going to Tavarua find a reservation within groups when there is a chance of availability.

Indies Trader III: 2010 and 2011 Schedule Now Available

“The Indies Trader III is the ultimate surf charter vessel. It is the most comfortable boat – has the longest range – great stability – just a really low stress level. It lacks nothing. 5 course meals, full bar including Australian wines and hard liquor – it is not possible to have a better surf trip experience” Martin Daly

The Indies Trader III  is the best surf charter boat in Sumatra – period.  The Indies Trader III delivers our high end clientele the type of surf trip they not only deserve, but expect – the type of trip that only the Indies Trader III can produce.
