Once you have made a booking with us, we just need to know your arrival time at Padang International Airport so we can arrange your transfer pick up.
Your trip starts with us in Padang, but you need to do your airline reservations to make it on time for the speedboat transfer to the island, which leaves around 1 pm the day of departure.
Knowing this, you should give yourself more than 3 hours, so you should be getting a plane that gets to Padang no later than 10 am.
Some guests prefer to arrive the day before and stay the night in Padang in which case we will arrange your hotel for you.
Depending on where you are coming from (Australia, Indonesia, America, Europe…) you would be arranging your trip differently. Our guests will be usually coming through Jakarta to Padang or Kuala Lumpur to Padang (Air Asia).
Once in at the Airport in Padang, our main driver will be there to take you to our meeting point and join the rest of the group.
Usually we use a Hotel lobby where you can relax, and do your last things before you come to the island.
Around 1 pm we go to the harbor, which is only 5 minutes from the metting point and we depart for Botik on our chartered speedboat.
It is a 4 to 5 hour ride to the Island of Botik on board the speedboat.
Once here at our Resort, after a brief welcome, you will be accommodated in your new paradise home for the next 11 nights…
Now the real fun begins and we will be showing you the greatest time and some of the best waves in the world.
