how are you ? I am hoping you are in good health and everything just fine as usual. First please be kind to let me introduce my self. My name is bayu, I am from sumatra - indonesia. Currently I am working at my friend's beach house in mentawai island as his administrative assistant. For more details about my friend's beach house you may browse his website ( http://www.yantosplace.com ), also I have my own website (http://www.mentawaiatmosphere.com ). If you want to know about the review of my previous guests, you may browse tripadvisor website ( https://www.tripadvisor.com/VacationRentalReview-g1572269-d9722478-Yanto... )
Since the surfing industry develop in several places in indonesia, the surfing lifestyle itself also blending with the local surfer of sumatra island, specially mentawai, an archipelago located on the west side of sumatra. Every year according to the authority of padang airport, there are approximately around 4000 until 5000 surfer visit mentawai islands for the surf trip every year, all of them at least must spent 1 night in padang city before they leave to mentawai islands due to the lack of public transportation that serve people for crossing the strait between main land sumatra and mentawai island. This condition makes padang city need more available rooms for them, not mentioning the backpackers and local tourist that also visit west sumatra for many reason.
I am planning to make sumatra guest house as an unique guest house made from bamboo, cause until now there is no accommodation in padang city that offer "back to nature concept" that I want to apply. I am optimist if we offer something different from the others, the guest will have something more valuable experience from their visit, and according to my previous experience, most of them become repeater and spreading words of mouth about it.
If you want you may contact me through my phone +6285355688299 or you may also send me an email to bayumarthen at gmail.com. I am hoping you may interest to working together with me in order to build and manage an unique bamboo guesthouse in sumatra island.
looking forward to hear from you again at your convenience time. many thanks in advanced.
