HT’s crew will meet you at Padang Airport, transport you to HT One for a quick 4-hour trip to HT's Resort. HT One is equipped with 700HP diesel engines, an onboard snacks & drinks bar, lounge area and bathrooms making for an easy and comfortable transfer.
At HT’s, you have complete access to the entire surrounding coastline via fully automatic mopeds and quadbikes. Their quadbikes are great for the 3-kilometer white sand beach behind the resort & the mopeds with double boardrack holders are great to get to all the breaks. All tracks are concrete (paved), making it really easy ride to all surf spots. You can park your bike right on the beach at all the 7 surf spots.

Turtle Protection Program at HT's Resort
Every turtle egg up till now has been taken from the beaches of Sipora Island and sold for eating. That ends on the 15th of March this year. HT’S Resort is buying back eggs and incubating them in a turtle pit on the beachfront of the resort.
When you stay at HT's Resort this year, a local villager will turn up and hand you 3 eggs. You will take these 3 eggs to the incubation pit and cover with sand. 12 weeks later, the new turtles will race 15 feet into the water and swim away. Sea Turtles are local for life, so that’s cool.
