Medewi / Sumbul is like the Bali of old before the tourists brought their western culture and multitudes to ruin the atmosphere of Kuta Legian Seminyak Ubud etc. This location is a surfers dream and anyone who wants a peaceful time in Bali living within a great community this is the place is for you. If you are a goofy foot surfer and like 200 metre easy going waves over a round rock sea floor and no coral. If you like rights there is a great right hander. There are a few basic restaurants nearby (Nal's Kitchen is fantastic), practically no souvenir shops, and life is wonderfully surf/relaxation orientated. The locals are great people and we can organise you a daily one-hour massage for around $8USD. There is gym nearby.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: Where is Medewi Manor? We are a three hour drive West from Denpasar airport well away from the madness of Kuta Legian Seminyak Ubud. We are 800 metres down the beach in sight of Medewi Point which is famous for its left hand point break. The main visitors to the Medewi area are surfboard riders and their partners. This is not a tourist area with western restaurants and shops that cater for tourists. See directions to Medewi Manor below. How do I get to Medewi Manor? Yani can pick you up from anywhere on the Island. This is the easiest way to get to Medewi Manor. First timers often get lost as I did. None of the roads are sign posted and if you are new to Bali best of luck. It is easier to call Yani. Medewi is a 2 and a half hour drive from Denpassar airport. Call Yani C What's App +62 813 53263220. What is the main attraction at Medewi /Yehsumbul? Surfing, Surfing Surfing: Surfboard riding and enjoying the peace well away from the tourist madness of Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Canggu, Senur and Ubud etc. There are no tourist orientated shops, one western style restaurant, no girlie bars, no bars or night clubs. BYO alcohol because the only alcohol you can by here is Bintang Beer. Relaxation: If you do not ride a surfboard or boogie board or on the days when the surf is not so good (not often there is usually a ridable wave happening somewhere) you can dip in the forever warm swimming pool, lazing around poolside with a book or laptop, access our huge video library and catch up on all the movies and series you have missed in your ordinary day to day life. We have some nice Hi Fi speakers hooked up to the Smart TV's so the sound is good. WI Fi Yes Where do I change my money? The money changer in Seminyak near the Denpasar airport closes around 11pm. It is best to arrive in Bali in enough time to get to a good value money changer. Yani will take you to our favourite money changer in Seminyak where you will get a fair deal. Do not change your money (unless you arrive on a late flight and you have no choice) at the airport or you will get a lousy exchange rate. Who is my first contact and how can he assist me with anything I want while I am there? You need to connect with Yani before or when you arrive in Medewi so that he can take you to Medewi Manor (2.5 hour drive) and settle you into your accommodation. Yani is a really useful nice guy and you can trust him as he is extremely honest. He can pick you up from the airport. He can take you to the supermarket and a reputable money changer. In Medewi he can show you all the good places to eat. Day trips and airport drop offs are sometimes contracted out to or local transport guys. We like to benefit the community with the business we bring to the area so make sure you buy a T shirt from a local guy at Medewi Point. What do I do about Food Supplies? We usually leave some basics in the cupboards like salt, pepper, local oil, flour yeast sugar spices etc. You are welcome to use them as we understand it is not convenient to buy everything you need to cook with and leave it there or take it with you when you depart. It is best to stock up with food and alcohol in Kuta, Seminyak or on Sunset Road at one of the big Supermarkets near Denpasar Airport. Yani will take you there. Thankfully Medewi / Yehsumbul is not a well-developed tourist area like Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Canggu, Sanur, Ubud etc. There is still the rice paddy style fishing village culture here reminiscent of old Bali before the tourists brought their culture to the Island and turned it into crazy town. Try to book an early flight into Denpasar so Yani can take you shopping at one of the bigger supermarkets in the Kuta area which has a significantly better choice and quality of food than Medewi / Yehsumbul where most western specialist foods are nearly impossible to obtain. The staple diet in Medewi / Yehsumbul is rice fish and chicken. The local meat is not only of poor quality but is also hard to find. The major supermarkets near Denpasar Airport close around 9 pm so catch an early flight. Remember it is cheap to eat out in Medewi and Yani will show you our favourite place Warung Bagus where the average cost per person for dinner will be around 50,000 Rp or $5 AUD (excluding bintang). The closest near western style supermarket to Medewi / Yehsumbul is a 30 minute drive away in the town of Negara. You can buy expensive alcohol other than Bintang there as well. Negara supermarket it is no-where near as well stocked in Western foods as the Supermarkets in Kuta / Seminyak. Yehsumbul and Medewi have roadside stalls with basic vegetables that go saggy in the sun by mid-day so get there early. Local Fish: There is a local fishing village nearby where you can purchase the catch of the day. You can ride the scooter along the beach front to fishing village which is near the river mouth at Medewi Point. You need to get to the fishing village between 10 am and 12 pm before the catch of the day is taken off to market. When the swell is too big the fisherman do not go out so it is best to stock up and put some fish in the freezer. Yani is available to go down to the fishing village and purchase you some fish. $10 AUD (100,000Rp) will get you around 2 to 3kg. Alcohol? Bring 1.25 litres per adult with you of your favorite spirits (buy in the country of departure). Alcohol other than Bintang Beer is extremely expensive in Bali and outside of the tourist areas is not readily available. You can pick up wine, foreign beer and spirits at the Kuta supermarkets but in Medewi / Yehsumbul you will only be able to purchase Bintang Beer. A 2 litre cask of red wine in Negara will cost you $33 AUD !!!!!!!! A three litre cask of drinkable red wine is $47 AUD or 407,000 RP, a 750 ml bottle of Johnny Walker is about $60 AUD. Enjoy!!!! Yani will drive you to Negara if you need to buy alcohol other than Bintang beer. Should I drink the TAP WATER? NO Definitely NO NO NO. Never drink tap water anywhere in Bali or Indonesia. There are over 250 million people here and water pollution is a biggie. There will be a large plastic bottle “AQUA” water on the kitchen bench. That is for drinking. The tap water is bore water and is drawn from a water table that can sometimes be smelly. When you run out of drinking water (Aqua: do not buy any other brand) call Yani and he will get you some more. Can you arrange the odd day trip while we are there? YES: Get Yani to either take you himself or arrange the local transport guys to take you to Menjangan Island Coral snorkelling, the Hindu temple, the local waterfall and daytrips across the other side of the Island to the hot springs, Lovina, water world near Lovina or Bedugul Golf Resort. Do not try and navigate the trip yourself or you will surely get lost. See our Website www.medewimanor.com Is the surf reliable? Medewi Point is a (up to 200 metre ride plus) left point break that breaks best in the 2 hour time period leading up to the high tide. At low tide the round rocks appear and can be a hazard. The tides work in 2 weekly cycles so a week where the tides are high in the morning is usually a good week when there is swell. During the April to November period the swell and wave direction is pretty reliable. The waves usually blow out after 12 pm so the morning surf is the best option unless you don’t mind lumpy waves in the afternoon. All in all you are likely to get a good wave on a high tide in the morning week. In the week when the high tides are in the afternoon the on shore or across shore wind usually gets to the waves and surfing conditions can be poor. In these weeks you can usually find a mid- tide wave out front at Sumbul Beach. On a small to mid-swell day the surf can be great not far from Medewi Manor on the black sand beach breaks called Sumbul Beach within 300 metre walking distance from Medewi Manor. There is also an excellent right hander wave past Medewi Point oddly called "The right hander" Our tip is to try and book a week when the high tide is in the morning from 7am to 11 am. Google “Bali Tides” and print out the available charts. What sort of waves can I expect? These waves are not dangerous or tubing rides. There are no barrels or coral reefs here. The wave forms surprisingly slowly and then crumbles from the top picking up into a faster section from midway on. Basically it is cutback, cutback then go for it. This wave is perfect for the older guys (like me). If you are a goofy footer Medewi is heaven on Earth. In my view if you are not super fit hot arse surfer the best board to have is one that is not too short (between 7 and 8 foot) with a bit of foam in it because the waves are fat and do not break as quickly as you expect. You need a bit of paddling speed to get on them early. Don't forget your booties as walking on the rocks can cut your feet. Remember to paddle down to the fishing village before attempting to get out of the surf or you are in for the barnacle rock hop. The best place to paddle out is between 2 rocks at the far corner boundary of Medewi Beach Cottages, just watch and copy the locals. How do I know if the surf is happening? I have placed Binoculars in the apartment for you to check out the surf. Are there any surfboards available ? Yes There are many boards for hire at Medewi Point and I have a rack of approximately 8 surfboards ranging from 9 foot to 6 foot 6 and 3 boogie boards flippers etc. I have 2 favorite boards that I do not like to hire but the rest are available on the condition that if they are damaged pay Yani to get the local guy to fix them (approx. $30AUD or 300,000Rp). Yani will arrange all of that if they get damaged. Yani's phone number is 0813 53263220. Don't lose the number. Can I hire a scooter in Medewi? Yes Medewi Manor has three guest scooters and one is usually available unless another of our guests has it. If you want to reserve one exclusively for yourself Yani can hire you a nice scooter for $5 per day. Ride at your own risk. Indonesian traffic is hectic, random and unpredictable and can take some getting used to. Be careful. Do not be one of the many tourists who fly home in a body bag. If you are an absolute bunny on a scooter it is not a good idea that you learn to ride in Indonesia. Be very careful and have your rear vision mirrors well-adjusted to enable you to keep a good look out of what is coming up behind you. Getting cleaned up from behind or hit by an overtaking car is the main cause of bike accidents. It is a short straight ride along the main road to the Medewi Beach turn off. Be very careful when you turn right at the Medewi Beach sign and enter the road to the beach check behind and make sure you indicate clearly you before turning. For extra good measure I turn on my blinkers and stick my hand out. If you are not a good scooter rider the safer option is to avoid the traffic and ride down the beachfront concrete track to Medewi Point then park at the fishing village and paddle out from there. Do I need a Motor Scooter or Driver’s License? You can hire a scooter or a car in Kuta or our local area. Make sure that you obtain an International Driver’s License before leaving your country of origin. Most travel insurance policies have a condition that if you are not licensed to ride a motor bike in your own country and you do not have an international driving permit you are not covered. Always wear a helmet if you are driving on the main road or Police will pull you over. Police often pull up cars and bikes and do registration and license checks. You do not want to be in a position of offering a policeman $10AUD 100,000 RP to let you go and forget about your indiscretion as there is always a possibility the Police officer may be one of the few who do not accept the concept of paying your fine immediately to make your problem go away. It is best just to do the right thing by the laws of the country and carry your home country motor bike / vehicle license and a current International Driver’s License on your person ready to produce it if called upon to do so. How private is Medewi Manor? There are 6 guest apartments. They all have private entrances and are located away from each other so privacy is not a problem. My wife Sri and I are sometimes in residence in our private upstairs apartment. We do not make our upstairs apartment available for guests. We are usually at Medewi Manor during July and then from mid-September to mid-October and then from mid-December until mid - February. I am a 69 year old Australian barrister who loves to surf. While I am at Medewi Manor I am happy to give you the full orientation work over. After surfing I am significantly occupied in my office upstairs staying in touch with my law commitments in Australia. Most times Sri and I are in Australia you will have the place to yourselves apart from our security caretaker named Rahim who only speaks Indonesian and lives in cabin at the front of the property well away from the downstairs guest apartment area. What local sites are there to see? Mengagan Island Coral Snorkelling Hindu temple Local Waterfall Tree with a hole in it. Day trip to Lovina, waterpark, the hot springs, Bedgul Golf Resort If you are game you can try Badminton with the locals (they will whip you). Cruising at Gede Warong on Medewi Point drinking Bintang and chatting with the surfers and locals. Can Day trips be arranged? Yes: Our local transport guys or Yani can take you anywhere you want to go. We like to provide employment to locals in our community. What are the locals like? The Medewi / Yehsumbul area is a conservative Muslim area with a small enclave of Hindu’s. There are no nightclubs or bars here. Surfers drink Bintang beer in the Warongs at Medewi Point but as you leave the point the availability of alcohol dramatically decreases. Muslims are basically friendly, conservative family orientated and do not appreciate drunkenness, drinking alcohol to excess, sexual relations outside of marriage. Everyone in the Medewi / Yehsumbul area is married and there are no night clubs. Locals love to sell you T– Shirts and take pics of you while you are surfing please buy a tee shirt and photo's of yourself surfing, you will be supporting our local community. Massage: Yani can arrange an in house massage with one of the best massage girls in our area. She works out in the gym to ensure she has the strength to go as hard as you can take. Cost 110,000Rp per hour (($8 USD) and she is very good. There are massage tents at Medewi Point that work at a similar rate. What are the Local Restaurants Like and where would you recommend if I want to eat out? The local restaurants are basic and cheap. Remember this is not a tourist area of Bali and thankfully it is nothing like the tourist madness of Senur, Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Ubud. In Bali the small eating houses are called Warong’s. Yani can show you where my favourite places to eat are such as: Brown Sugar Restaurant: Medewi Manor is situated right behind the Brown Sugar Surf camp and is a short walk out of Medewi Manor’s back gate and along a rice paddy wall. It is frequented mostly by Germans and is designed to serve the in house guests of Brown Sugar but they will cater for Medewi Manor Guests. This is the closest Restaurant to Medewi Manor. The food is good and fair value for money. If you can speak German you are going to feel right at home here. Say hello to Argus and Daniel for me. Nal's Kitchen: Great place to eat and not far away. 600 metres Warong Bagus: (my favorite) Situated in Pulocan an eight minute drive from Medewi Manor. Gede Warong: Situated at Medewi Point overlooking the surf. They serve basic Indonesian rice based foods and near western style burgers. Fruit juices are great or enjoy a Bintang while watching the surfers or a sunset at the Point. Meet the tourists and locals as Gede Warong and thereabouts is the social hub of Medewi. Mai Malu: Located at the top of the road that joins the highway to Medewi Point Surf Break. This is the most Westernised eatery in town and the bill always seems to be higher than you anticipated. They charge VAT. The food is ok but nothing exceptional. It is the cleanest restaurant in town but all in all I find it a little disappointing. They do a good budget Indo Australian and American breakfast deal and sometimes Rodger the rat makes an appearance and introduces you to his family. Puri Dajuma: This is a French Beachfront Resort approximately 15 minutes’ drive from Medewi Manor and is the most expensive way to eat in Medewi. The food is not that great for the price the setting is upscale resort and I hardly ever eat there. One feature is that it does have a comprehensive bar and you can order expensive alcohol beverages of your choice.
