The resort is named after the T-Land wave, located in the small village of Nemberala. The T-Land is one of the longest waves in Indonesia and offers surfing at different levels thanks to its three sections. The Indonesian archipelago boasts the most beautiful waves in the world. Due to its independence from Eastern Timor in 2002, Rote has kept well away from main stream tourism
On the edge of the sand at Nemberala we offer you our exclusive accommodation consisting of 4 bungalows, 8 rooms in total. All huts are built following the local architecture and using materials from the island. The bungalow roofs are thatched (alang) and rest on coral-rock walls.
In order to avoid the inconveniences of walking from a tropical climate into an air-conditioned one, we have designed our rooms in such a way an ideal indoor temperature is sustained by using the sea breeze and the energy of fans.
The T-Land Resort is a collection of charming rooms with their own distinctive decor. To achieve this they have decorated them with Timor Style (antiques) and first-class Teak furniture. The bathrooms are outside, and the terraces offer magnificent sea views.
Our open, spacious Restaurant-Cafe is situated just by the beach. Its strong traditional decor offers a sense of freedom and enjoyment with enchanting natural luxuries like white-sand flooring. Our Chef and Kitchen team prepare a daily menu which mixes traditional Indonesian cuisine with some western influence.
The bar swimming Pool are also part of our resort. You will also enjoy them under a starry sky while watching videos of the day´s surfing.
The best time of year to head to Rote is the dry season March through to September with the Indian Ocean turning into a wave factory.
The T-Land is the main Rote´s wave. It is one of the longest (600ft-1.200ft) and most perfect waves in Indonesia. Its quality and consistency allows you to surf from 2ft (0,5m) to 15ft (5m).
It has three sections with different levels of difficulty. It is often compared with G-Land, more accessible and maneuverable. Off-shore wind during dry season. With so many hours of surf, you will fulfill your dream of surfing just with your friends. T-Land Resort offers you the best location for accessing the wave. Our resort and our boat are located in front of the reef channel that will take you to surf.
Located in the Nembrala bay this is a shorter and more intense right. It has a fast take-off and brakes on reef ending in a deep water canal. It is at its best at low tide but it can break at high tide with a swell. Our Resort offers you the best access to both the T-Land and the Bommie waves.
This right peak is 10 mints away by motorbike or similar, it can be reached by boat too. This is a powerful wave with a fast take off and a good tube section. It breaks at mid tide. It is best with mild wind, early in the morning and just after the sunset. It’s rare to find people riding it..
Suckies also know as Sucky Mamas or Peanuts, it´s 10 minutes by boat, located in Fedok Village. A short, intense and powerful right-wave. Very funny with good tubes, breaking at half and high tide. You´ll hardly find anybody there.
In the same Nemberala beach, we find a safe and funny wave, perfect for beginners. A right and left wave breaking at half and high tide.
Located right by a gorgeous uninhabited island. Do’o offers us a very good tube section. It brakes with Southern sea and Southwest winds. You get the most powerful tubes in dry season at mid tide but it is advisable to surf it at mid and full tide to avoid getting too close to the reef. During this season it is at its best early in the morning with mild wind.
There are also other world-class waves, both left and right ones. Depending on the direction of the sea and the wind we move along the coast to find the best conditions. Beaches with crystal-clear waters, white-sand islands stranded in the middle of the ocean… We will let you into all these secrets.
