Botik Surf Resort

Situated right in the Heart of the world famous Playground area in the Northern Mentawai Islands, Botik Resort is designed for a high comfort surfing holiday on a pristine private island for a maximum of 10 guests. We are surrounded by some of the best waves in the world and they are only a 5 to 20 minute speedboat ride away . The Island of Botik and its reefs, the great variety of waves around us and our location are some of our great advantages. The resort is located on the Northern side of Botik, a private island all to ourselves, and it is situated right by the ocean making it a real beach Surf Resort.

We believe that having a reduced number of surfers on the island helps everyone’s comfort and it has become our major policy. This enables our guests to know each other better and provides them with a whole new experience. We can give more personal attention. Having a small number of surfers also helps to organize our daily surf trips. Guests have different options and depending on winds, tides and swell directions we go find the best waves with our surf guides. We avoid bringing a crowd with us to the surf and having two speedboats for a maximum of 10 guests, makes it very easy and comfortable for everyone.

Fishing

Our main goal is showing the best surf you can imagine but also, fishing and spear fishing have become very common activities in our resort and we have noticed an increasing amount of guests bringing their own fishing gear and ready to get out there for some great fun.

Over the past 2 years we have been out looking for good spots and we have found amazing fishing areas near reefs and in Deep Ocean.
Thanks to a radar system we discovered amazing pinnacles in deeper waters that come up to only 5 meters below the water surface and where large pelagic such as Dogtooth Tuna, Wahoo, King fish, Giant Trevally, Mackerels, King Barracudas and others can be found patrolling the reefs and only 5 to 10 minutes from our resort.

We have a few fishing rods, spear guns, snorkels, fins and other fishing gear but we strongly recommend bringing your own. We are more than happy to take you fishing for a whole new different experience. Our reefs and marine life are rich and spectacular and you will most likely be able to see all kinds of reef sharks, turtles, stingrays, manta rays large pelagic, beautiful reef fish and much more. This is definitely an experience you will never forget
