Leleu, which means Jungle in the Mentawai dialect, is perfectly situated on one of the smaller islands in the central Mentawai chain off the west coast of Sumatra. There is nothing out of place in the design of the property. The guest bungalows are tastefully designed with perfect views of the pristine Indian Ocean and surrounding islands.
The bungalows were designed and built around the concept of the Uma, which is the traditional style of Mentawai homes. They have high natural sago roofs with open ceilings allowing for the flow of air to act as a natural air conditioner. Hence there is no need for AC.
At Leleu they live a beautiful way of life with the elements of nature all around. Guests immerse themselves in the Leleu Lifestyle and embrace the unique opportunity of Jungle Beach Island Life. We are completely off the grid and maintain the highest possible eco standards. We collect rainwater and harvest solar power.
This property has the longest stretch of deep water anchorage of any other property in the channel and is the most sought-after on Simakakang Island. Many establishments have restricted boat access due to shallow coral beds; only owners can anchor their yacht/boat right in front of their villas, which will be eco-tourism, unlike Bali mass tourism. There are no roads, shops, or restaurants, giving the island an authentic and valued lifestyle.

– Leleu is owned in a PT PMA
– Leleu was set up and bought through an offshore company PT PMA which is transferable to new
– There is no leasehold
