Pantai Sumurtiga or Sumurtiga beach is the best beach on Sabang island. This white sand beach is more than 2 kilometrs long and ideal for jogging, walks or just to enjoy the beach and sea. The beach in front of the resort is a recognised international area where you are welcome to use your bikinis and western style swim wear. Drinks can also be enjoyed on the beach. If you venture outside this area, you are encouraged to "cover up" with shorts and t-shirts.
Since the main feature of our resort revolves around the beach we have created a range of facilities to optimise your beach time.
Beach towels available on request.
Deck chairs to use on the Beach.
Hammocks on the Beach.
Snorkelling equipment and life vests available for rent.
Food and drinks to order from our ala carte beach restaurant.
Shower facilities to wash off the sand before you retire to your bungalow.
Western style toilet facilities / change area.
A beach Prayer facility for our Muslim guests.
Shaded chairs and tables to enjoy your food and drinks.
On Fridays we encourage our guests not to go swimming between 1230 and 1330. During this time it is the main Muslim Prayer time of the week when all the men go to the Mosque. We do this mainly as a show of respect to the local Muslim community. This is the only exception for the whole week.
If you find the need to get in touch with the real world, we provide FREE WIFI throughout the resort. It is password protected. Please ask our staff for the password. Best reception is around the main building.
We have a small but functional business centre with a computer, internet and a printer to make on-line flight bookings, print out your flight tickets, check in on-line, print out your boarding passes or check e-mails.
We are proud of our very active library / book exchange. Books are available in a range of languages. We also have a range of travel guides available. This is a special facility for the book worms among us who prefer to relax and read the time away in the hammocks on the bungalow balconies or on the beach deck chairs.
Santai Sumur Tiga has a range of Board games and Playing Cards to keep you busy on rainy days.
The snorkelling right in front of the resort is excellent. For your convenience we have provided a pontoon located about 30 meters from the beach. The pontoon is great for a rest whilst snorkelling but can also be used for sun bathing and relaxing. We have also provided a rope between the beach and the pontoon so that the less experienced swimmer can also enjoy snorkelling while being supported by the rope. Life jackets are always recommended for the less experienced swimmers and kids. These are available for rent at the resort.
Traditional massages are available and provided in the privacy of your own bungalow. Due to the Syariah Law, males massage males and females for females. Locally manufactured virgin coconut oil is used in our massages.
