Trip Schedule & Date Options

When planning a trip in advance, your flight needs to 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. This schedule works for both the overnight ferry and Mentawai Fast.

Guests traveling on the overnight ferry spend a night in a private A/C sleeping cabin traveling between Padang and Sikakap in the Mentawai Islands. Departure from Padang is at 5.00 pm and arrival is at 7.30 am, with a 1.5 hour speedboat transfer to the resort the next morning. If departing to Padang, departure from the resort is at 2.00 pm, and arrival around 7.30 am the next morning.

Guests traveling on Mentawai Fast can relax after flight travel with a night at 4 star Mercure Hotel in Padang, 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, either to Sikakap (Fridays) or DIRECT to the resort (limited Sundays). Traveling via Sikakap takes an extra 1.5 hours.

On returning to Padang, Mentawai Fast departs either Sikakap (Fridays) or Macaronis (limited Sundays), at 2.00 pm and arrives at 6.30pm. A transit night in Padang is usually required with flight departure preferably 11.30 am or later the next day. This allows time for breakfast and 1 hour transfer to the airport, arriving 1.5 hours prior to your flight departure.

Note: For those travelling aboard Mentawai Fast, we don’t advise 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 date.

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.
