The village, Nagari Sungai Pinang, is situated on the west coast of the Indian Ocean, south of Padang, the capital city of West Sumatra, Indonesia.

Otros aspectos destacables

Since May 2010, Authentic Sumatra is running an ecotourism project to help the local community by working with them. The income from Ricky’s Beach House is to pay the crew and help the villagers.

Where the money goes?

-60% of the Ricky’s Beach House income goes to the crew and their families
-30 % of the Ricky’s Beach house income goes to support poor young people’s studies (high school) in Padang.
-10% of the Ricky’s Beach House income are saved in case of medical urgency or urgent transport to Padang.

So the money comes to the village and stay in the village.

10 people from poor families from the village are working with us + some free lance from Padang.
We buy as often as possible food and drinks in the village, as well as others needs.
We are working with local people for others activities such renting boats, cooking classes, massages or laundry.

Local art craft : we support local art craft and woodcarving by working with local woodcarver and selling their product to our travelers. All wooden furnitures in RBH are hand-made by Sava, one of our woodcarver.

School/schooling :

-We often organize workshop with kids from the village such drawing or painting class, English class, hand made bracelet or necklace, with the help of our travelers, to connect on the one hand, the travelers and on the other hand, the local kids all together.
-We also receive regularly clothes, pen, school supplies from our travelers that we give out to the schools or poor families from the village.
-We help our crew to improve their skills by often sending them to accompany our travelers (Mentawai, Sumatra tour), providing them training in Padang (guide certificate) or even supporting their studies fees (during 3 years we helped 3 people for their high school fees and 3 of them graduated!)
Ricky’s Beach house became a kind of parallel school for our crew : they can learn English with our travelers, learn how to be responsible, learn how to work, learn others culture and open their mind.

La hora de llegada es flexible

• Our village is a small fishermen village with strong traditions. To respect the villagers and the community, dress modestly not too short.
•If you have never been to Indonesia before and even never been to Asia, you might be surprised to see garbage everywhere (roads, beaches...). Indonesia is still far from this problem and almost nobody is educated about it, especially in villages. Our future goal is to to make local people aware of environment, green and garbage recycling but for the moment, the village is like all the others villages in Indonesia.
•If you are invited to someone's house, don't come in with your shoes : always take it off before come in. To great someone, shake his/her hand and always with your right hand. Try to eat with your right hand also as its not polite to use left hand. If you are invited to someone's house for eating or drinking, never start eating before you have been told to.

•At Ricky's Beach House, there is neither hot water in the bungalow, nor WIFI. But you can get internet (and phone network) everywhere with a 3G smartphone and a 3G key - Telkomsel - very cheap in Indonesia.

No ATM in the village so think about taking some money before your arrival (in Padang).

•Ricky's Beach House is a place for you if you are easy going, if you like and want to meet local people and if you are looking for authenticity and nature. You might be disappointed if you are looking for Balinese service with comfort. Traveling thought Sumatra is not easy, its a root destination.

Ricky's Beach House es el lugar perfecto para relajarse. La descripción proporcionada por Airbnb es 100% correcta. Los bungalós al frente del mar tienen una vista increíble y son cómodos y frescos. Ricky y Ann son grandes anfitriones, ellos y su equipo están siempre atentos a lo que necesites y te ayudan con las actividades que quieras realizar. El ambiente es muy amigable, puedes conversar con la gente local y descubrir sus historias. En la noche pasé una velada magnífica con la cerveza bintang, historias de indonesia y canciones en guitarra. Realmente una experiencia que no olvidaré.

I almost cancelled this trip, but so glad that I didn't do it. Because it's pretty unbelievable how pretty this place is. If you have the chance to go here, please go. And cheers to all the guys that are super fun, but also respectful and made sure that I was comfortable even though I'm the only woman there.

After an amazing stay here in December, we HAD to return this May and it was even better than the first trip. I was happy to see that while the accommodation has grown and improved, the amazing family-friendly vibe I fell in love with has stayed the same. Ricky and his crew are among the nicest guys I've ever met in my entire life. I always feel so welcome here and was genuinely sad to leave. The nightly jam sessions are so fun, and I love walking around the village visiting with the locals during the day. Go with an open heart and mind, and this place will fill your heart with love!! If you go here, please PLEASE bring some extra cash to donate for their turtle conservation project and English lessons for the kids. They are doing some really great things here and would really appreciate it.

Like any place, the people make it what it is, which couldn't be more true for the people of Sungai Pinang, Ricky and his crew at RBH who made our first trip to Indonesia (and Sumatra) truly unique and one I would hope to repeat in the very near future. We found ourselves immersed in the local culture and lifestyle, located in a small fishing village at the foothills of the West Sumatran jungle. Difficult to leave (thanks to the people) and cannot wait to return!

If there were more stars to give I would. Perfect host, great communication, easy transport and most beautiful spot on earth! Amazing food, fun music, lots to explore and plenty of places to relax. Will DEFINITELY revisit. Absolutely no complaints. Ricky helped us receive mail even. We decided to extend our stay twice! Totally completely amazing :)

Ricky's beach house is one of those special places that make traveling worthwhile. The location is a wonderful beach paradise. Ricky's staff are very welcoming, and are really keen to interact with guests and help out in any way they can. There are plenty of nature based activities you can do, but the best thing is to chill out in the sunshine. The bungalows are great, bathrooms basic, but all you need. The food is all local, fresh and plentiful. We thoroughly recommend staying here, it really is as good as it looks.
