Trip Schedule & Date Options

Guests traveling on the overnight ferry (available until Jan 09, 2019) spend a night in a private A/C sleeping cabin traveling between Padang and Sikakap in the Mentawai Islands. Departure is at 6.00 pm and arrival is at 8.00 am, with a 1.5 hour speedboat transfer between Sikakap and the resort. If departing to Padang, departure from the resort is at 2.00 pm.

Guests traveling on Mentawai Fast Fridays and some Sundays (DIRECT) can relax after travel with a night at Mercure Hotel in Padang at the beginning of your trip, with early morning breakfast buffet and 5.45 am departure to the ferry terminal the following morning. Departure is at 6.30 am and arrival is at 11.00 am (traveling via Sikakap takes an extra 1.5 hours).

On returning to Padang, Mentawai Fast is scheduled to depart at 2.00 pm and arrive at 6.30pm. A transit night in Padang is usually required at the end of your trip, with flight departure preferably 11.30 am or later the day after your resort Check-out. This allows time for breakfast, 1 hour transfer to the airport, arriving 2 hours before your flight departure.

Note: We don’t recommend planning to depart Padang the same day as your resort Check-out, unless planning last minute and stable sea conditions are predicted. In this case, the earliest flight departure possible is after 9.00 pm on resort Check-out (currently only Lion Air to Jakarta at 9.20 pm).

When planning a trip in advance, your flight should be scheduled to arrive in Padang 1 day before your resort Check-in date by 2.00 pm, and depart 1 day after your resort Check-out date, 11.30 am or later.

If transferring to/from a charter boat or other resort, we only accept Check-ins or Check-outs as per the dates shown on our Trip Calendar below. Charter boat captains must agree to your scheduled pick-up / drop-off.

NEW! – We can help you arrange a combined stay of 5 or 9 nights with a stay at a South Sipora resort (home of Lances Right & Left). Please enquire for details via live chat or email info@macaronisresort.com
