Togat Nusa Retreat
Ringed by beautiful white sand beach, the 12 hectare island can be circumnavigated in just half an hour…
Looking out over a turquoise lagoon at the front of the island, Scarecrows, a long left hand wave peels around the fringing coral reef.
Four traditionally inspired Bungalows, each uniquely designed and built in the same style as the main building, using recycled timbers and driftwood. Each bungalow is setup to accommodate 2 (unless already organized) people , for a total of 8 guests on the island at any one time. All have private bathrooms with running hot water. The funky interior design incorporates hand built custom furniture and antique lighting and fixtures left over from Dutch fishing vessels.
Each bungalowalso has fans to help stay cool. Using local Mentawai builders, under the guidance of John E Ocean, Togat Nusa Retreat maximises its local surroundings and functions as a partial eco- resort, yet still delivers a very high standard of accommodations and personal space.
Influenced by the design of traditional Mentawai Umas, The bar has been built with the owner/builder’s (John E Ocean} artistic flare and creativity in design – shining through in its rustic styling, making this spectacular piece of craftsmanship, truly a one of a kind.
Built entirely out of recycled timber, and driftwood collected from the surrounding beaches, the high pitched sago palm thatched roof is supported by a centre beam made from the trunk of a massive coconut tree. Crossbeams and supports with branches and root systems still intact protrude from the walls, creating shelves for our quality sound system, lights and ornaments.
Our Bar stocks a variety of beers and spirits as well makes cocktails and fresh fruit smoothies, its NW facing aspect makes it the ideal place to grab a cold beverage and watch the sun set on another perfect day in paradise.
