In 2010 the most efficient flight schedule for guests traveling to SKM Surf Charters, or Kandui Resort from the United States will fly into Singapore, Singapore to Jakarta where you will switch terminals, and eventually Jakarta to Padang. We've included some basic information below to help you set up your flight to Padang.

Saraina Koat Mentawai utilizes Oceanview Travel in San Clemente to handle all of our guests flight arrangements. The person you need to speak to over there is the owner, Jeff Samuelson; we highly recommend you use his services to get the most affordable rate and most knowledgeable service possible. Jeff has handled flight arrangements for literally hundreds upon hundreds of our guests and is uniquely qualified to help you out as well.

1. How do I get to Indonesia? We recommend that you travel to Padang in Sumatra (port of departure) via Singapore.

We can assist with bookings for your international flights, your Garuda air ticket to Padang, and any necessary overnight accomodations. 

Our crew and ground staff will meet you at the airport in Padang on arrival and make arrangements to transfer you to the boat.

2. What do I do about my flight arrangements? Saraina Koat Mentawai utilizes Oceanview Travel to handle all of our guests air transportation issues for our United States based customers.

3. Where should I stay if I have an extra night on land? This answer depends on where you have to stay for that extra night. Quite simply we suggest the following options:

Singapore: In Singapore we recommend using the Grand Mercure Roxy Hotel - "The Roxy". The Grand Mercure Roxy Hotel is a world away from Singapore's hustle, yet just 10 minutes from key locations such as the city centre, Changi International Airport and Singapore Expo, It is located on the East Coast of Singapore on Marine Parade Road Road, opposite Parkway Parade Shopping Centre and within walking distance to East Coast Recreation Park.

If you don't have enough time to leave the airport there is a "Transit hotel" inside the airport that works quite well, the only downside to this option is that they have a major construction project underway and at times your stay could get quite noisy.  

Padang: The recent earthquake in Padang has destroyed all the hotels in town, accept for a few small ones, that are not very nice. We no recommend that if you need to get a hotel room, that you get it in Jakarta, instead of Padang.

Jakarta: In Jakarta we recommend the Sheraton Bandara Hotel. It is only 5 minutes from the Jakarta Airport terminal by free shuttle bus. If you would like to book a room here on your way to, or from Padang, then we would be happy to help.
