T-Land Surf Resort - Nemberala beach, Rote Island. Indonesia


T - Land Resort Overall rating: 5 out of 5 based on 1 reviews.

T-Land Surf Resort is an exclusive and charming Resort, located just in front of the main waves of the area, T-Land and The Bommie. The surf boats are moored on the beach right in front of the Resort, which allows a quick access to both of the waves. This also saves us from wasting time carrying the boards by foot to the breaks, a really important detail that is much appreciated after surfing for several days under the intense sun. All rooms have incredible views of the sea, palm trees and the white sand beach. Each one of the rooms are decorated and inspired by Timor style, always respecting the local tradition. This is a magical place where relaxation meets the excitement of surfing!


T-Land Surf Resort is an exclusive resort designed to accommodate small groups (maximun 16 people) thinking of the comfort, peacefulness and an idyllic tropical setting. It’s a perfect destination for surfers traveling in couples, with friends or family, but also ideal if you´re traveling alone, as you will experience a warm family atmosphere here. The Resort is hidden among the palm trees of this remote island in Indonesia, perfect for a getaway away from the crowds of Bali. 


At all times you will be served by our friendly and hospitable staff that are under the direction of a team of western surfers who will offer you a high-quality service. The whole complex is fenced all-round with coral rock assuring privacy and safety without the detriment of the sea views.



“This resort is located right in front of the break T-Land, very close to the village of Nembrala. The staff is super super attentions and friendly, speaking really good English. The owners have a vast knowledge of the waves and they always recommend you where the best place to surf is. We recommend this place for a crew of surfers wanting to be close to good waves and to have the easy access to go out to all the breaks in the area by the Resort’s surf boats. It’s also the right choice if you want to have the convenience of 3 inclusive meals a day and to watch a beautiful sunset at the end of the day, right from the sun beds of the Resort while having a Bintang. The Resort is also perfect for families since there is a pool on the premises and a calm ocean/lagoon right in front of the Resort. This oceanfront accommodation is magical!”

Getting Here

For international flights, you will need to travel to Ngurah Rai international Airport in Bali (Denpasar) or Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta. There are regular and direct flights from Bali and Jakarta to Kupang.


We recommend flying to Kupang Airport with Garuda Indonesia or Lion Air.


By Sea:

Our guide will pick you up at the El Tari airport in Kupang to leave you at the hotel to have a rest. The following morning we will go to the port of Kupang to take the fast Ferry (VIP class) departing at 8:30 am. The journey by sea takes about one hour and thirty minutes.


By Air:

To avoid spending the night in Kupang, both Garuda Indonesia and Lion Air morning flights would connect with the only daily flight from Kupang to Rote at 15:05 lasting 30 minutes. For both options, once at the port or airport in Rote you will be picked up by our staff, who will take you directly to our complex, where you will be greeted by the management team to welcome you.


And from here on, out to surf! On the return journey, due to the Ferry schedules, it is not necessary to spend the night in Kupang.
