Optional Extras/Hotels/Important Information

PLEASE BE AWARE: All guests are required to be in Padang by 1:00pm on the first day of their trip and leave after 6:00pm on the last day of their trip.

All transfers are on a first come first served basis, and all flight itineraries need to be confirmed by Kandui Resort prior to booking.

Kandui Resort Transportation and Check-In Schedule:

Please note that transport out to the island is on a first come, first served basis. Kandui Resort currently operates two transfers per transfer day. Ideally we need 50% of guests on the 6:00am transfer requiring guests to arrive the day before the trip; and 50% on the 3:00pm transfer boat which requires guests to arrive before 1:00pm on the first day of the trip. When you make your reservation we will let you know what transfer boat we need you to be on and will make every effort to accommodate requests to the best of our ability. All guests are required to leave Padang after 6:00pm on the last day of the trip to be safe and leave room for delays. No exceptions will be accepted so we can keep everyone on the same page and happy. Guests that arrive on the first transfer boat can check into their umas at 1:00pm to give us enough time to clean the umas from the group before.
