What other traveller thought of us
“15 jours au paradis dans cette maison longue super sympa. La cuisinière a su répondre à l’appétit infini de 7 surfeurs affamés pendant 15 jours. L’équipe est aux petits soins. Ils mettent tout en oeuvre pour nous garantir un séjour idéal.
Les pieds dans l’eau, l’aquarium tropical à 30 mètres de la pièce de vie. Le paradis des surfeurs et et des pêcheurs.
Un grand merci à Yann qui gère tout de main de maître”
“Everything was absolutely perfect, from A to Z… The lodge itself, the crew, the food, the landscapes etc. Yan was always available when we needed something.
I highly recommend it !
Thank you Umata ❤️”
“Yan is a very kind guide who lives in Siberut. He knows the Mentawai culture perfectly and knows how to pass it on. He made us discover sublime and uncrowded places in the jungle. We met some very endearing characters and far from the tourist circuits. We then went to the island of Karangmajat in the Mentawai Islands to sleep in robinson’s house. A sublime wooden house lost in the ocean. We have sinned, surfed and visited the other islands with crystal clear waters. An exceptional moment. His cook feasted us all as we cooked with him too. We had the great feeling of freedom and doing what we liked when we wanted. A trip recommended but especially this great guide who knows all the best addresses. Do not hesitate to contact him even if all this must remain secret”.

“I stayed in Umata many times and will continue to go there. The location is perfect, close to the surfing spots, with Baby Kandui just in front. It is also an excellent place just to relax. People working in Umata are very friendly and makes you feel home. Umata is a place to have a true Mentawai experience.
I did a couple of trekking inland Siberut with Yan from Umata and these are trips that I strongly recommend. Yan knowledge about the Mentawai culture really allows to understand the Mentawai way. I will always be back.”

“We hadden een hele fijne en goed verzorgde trip dankzij Sitta en haar vader. We maakten een tocht door de jungle (enorme aanrader) en verbleven een nacht in het dorpshuis van de Mentawai-stam in Siberut. Een bijzondere ervaring! Wil je onder deskundige en vriendelijke begeleiding het authentieke Indonesië ervaren en wil je daarnaast verblijven op een idyllische spot aan een kristalheldere zee, dan raden wij Umata Village van harte aan!”

“We stayed at Umata Village for 2 nights and we absolutely loved it. It’s close to the beach and Karangmajat is a beautiful island. I really loved the traditional style of the accommodation and the fact that the owners are locals, so they have a lot of knowledge of the Mentawais. Keep in mind that it takes some time to get here. First take the (fast) ferry to Siberut and then you need to arrange a local boat to go to the island. Sitta and Yan can help you! Our trip to the Mentawais was the highlight of our Sumatra trip. Totally recommended.”
