"Surfers want the grit and the grime, they want their feet in the sand, the locals to be friends and that sense of connection and belonging in their destinations, and that is precisely what Merdeka House offered, and continues to offer to this day."

REVIEW | The independent travel guide for Southeast Asia.

"This was one of the most spectacularly appointed places to stay we saw across all of Sumbawa. The view to the north, with enormous waves rolling in like clockwork, and the imposing northern headland reaching into the sky, is simply Jurassic."
