Monkeys Resort is set in the quiet southern reaches of the Telo archipelago. It consists of four private, air-conditioned bungalows and dining pavillion, set in a bay that‘s the classic Indonesian postcard. This place is pretty much brand-spanking new, and as far as the southern Telos are concerned, this place is incomparable in comfort and quality. With their home break out at the mouth of the bay, and a half a dozen options within a short boat ride radius, Monkeys is a special surf destination. Crowds are not an issue, and the variety of waves on offer makes it suitable for surfers of all skill levels.
