Aloita is home to seven spacious double cottages and one even larger “Family” cottage. Each bungalow is an entirely separate residence, completely detached on all sides for added privacy and security. Though the amenities vary slightly from bungalow to bungalow, all are clean, new, and extremely well appointed. All our bungalows are constructed of the highest quality materials, including the same local hardwoods you’ll see throughout our resort.
Upon first viewing, you’ll notice each bungalow has its own large lanai and private path to our extensive white sand beach. Once inside, the chill coming from the pumping A/C will cool down your hot skin after a day’s activities in the sun. Or, if you’re already acclimatized, one of the various settings on the overhead fan will provide you just the proper amount of ventilation, in every bungalow you will find water dispenser with coffee and tea facilities free of charge, every day our staff will clean your bungalow and make your beds, which are ample and very comfortable.
The bathrooms are highlighted by more local hardwoods, and are very well thought out. Each bungalow has a safe, a mini fridge, and plenty of closet and storage space. In addition, each has its own private outdoor courtyard and storage area in the rear of the residence, complete with outdoor shower and shaded racks for your surfboards.
Our “Family Bungalow” is perfect larger groups, or couples who want to bring their little ones along. The bedroom on the first floor is larger and has a separate entrance, giving the folks added peace and quiet if their little ones decide to get rowdy.
There is an additional private bedroom on the second floor as well. An additional bed can be brought into the living room for larger families.
One of the aspects that truly sets Aloita apart from all other resorts in the area is its focus on diving. Aloita has the only full-fledged dive center in the Mentawais which enables our guests to explore all aspects of diving including scuba, snorkeling, and free diving. Whether you’re interested in just poking around the reefs right out in front of the resort, or you’re interested in swimming with black tips and barracuda 50 meters below the surface, Aloita has something for everyone.
