Perfect Sumatran surf is why we're here. Telo is blessed with incredibly consistent 3-5 feet waves. The waves are less intense but more groomed than the Mentawais. Over 20 surf options are readily accessible, and 70% are within 20 minutes of the lodge. With decades of experience, our marine ops team knows how to avoid crowds and enable our travelers to surf together.
A good surf guide understands the ocean. A great surf guide understands his guests. At Telo Island Lodge, our guides are the key to our success and are responsible for countless guests riding the best waves of their lives.
We invest seriously in hiring and developing the best surf guides in the world. True professionals who focus on enhancing your experience, not their own. And the cost of guides is included in your stay.
Telo Island Lodge is a private and comfortable Sumatran retreat. The large open-plan space provides a relaxed backdrop for an intimate surf trip. The resort holds no more than 8 guests at a time. Our bar and lounge provide space for gathering when not on the water - whether gathering for an early breakfast, relaxing after lunch, or evening shenanigans. Our common area also includes a game room with a couch, TV, and table tennis & darts.
And surf dog Dre helps keep everyone in order!
The resort has four rooms, two in the main building and two in our over-water bungalow. Each room has king-size beds, air-conditioning, and an ensuite bathroom, and the rooms are serviced daily with complimentary laundry service.
We take special pride in our food at Telo. Our chef Restu Ga has kept Telo surfers well-fed since he joined the team in 2008. He specializes in fresh, healthy Sumatran cuisine - lots of fish and fresh fruits and vegetables - but we can accommodate any dietary needs or tastes. The resort is all-inclusive, so all meals are included in your board, and alcohol is available for purchase.
The Pegasus story began with the creation of Telo Island Lodge just over a decade ago. From the word go, Telo Island Lodge – with a right-hander out front and a left-hander around the back – was unique: exclusive but inclusive; top-shelf quality from the food to the fleet, but lighthearted and fun at the same time; a commitment to waves that exhausts the most surf-hungry maniac after a few days, but free from any of that “gnarlier than thou” nonsense attitude.
And to this day, this both defines us and explains why Pegasus exists.
The crew here at Pegasus are hopelessly in thrall to the surf, the ocean, nature and adventure that surrounds it.
Not only do our lodges allow us to keep indulging our passions, but we’ve also found that there’s nothing more satisfying than sharing the experience, and making friends along the way.
It might be presumptuous to speak on behalf of all the Pegasus crew, scattered at various spots on various (mostly) coral islands, but we know what a privilege it is to be in this game.
The few weeks of the year you’re with us, we get to see you at your most open and carefree. That stoke is infectious, and not only does it make our days happier, it also inspires us to give the best of ourselves too.
Anyway, enough hippy feel-good carry-on! We’d love to see you at any of our places.
Let’s go get some waves.
