After a long journey from Paris via Jakarta and Banda Aceh we arrived on our paradise Island for a few days of RnR before backpacking down Sumatra. We were not disappointed in the slightest. Perfect views, amazing white sanded beach & turquoise waters. Excellent hospitality, a great mix of Indonesian & western food for all the family. Breakfast hit the spot & smoothies to die for! The staff organised a TukTuk tour for us, dolphin watching & snorkelling in the coral reef - which were all incredible. Our laundry came back immaculate and they even arranged a driver & minibus for our onward journey back on the mainland. Absolutely nothing to fault, except maybe we should have stayed longer!

We stayed in one of the beach view bungalows and the view is absolutely stunning. Lovely room, very comfy, complete with with mini fridge and water dispenser plus good WiFi reception. They are also very accommodating with arranging pick-up from the airport ferry and were able to be very flexible when I got the ferry time wrong!

Freddie and his staff go out of their way to make everyone feel at home, always asking you about your day and putting on lovely evening meals with a lovely family atmosphere. We stayed over Christmas and the Christmas eve meal in particular was great!

Amazing snorkeling right off the beach and one of the only places you can wear a bikini. Would 100% return.

We had a nice stay at Freddies, everyone was welcoming and the beach was just a dream. Rooms have very thin walls and bathroom could use a renovation or major cleaning. But for that price we cannot complain! Since the island is very small, there is not much to do or explore, so 6 days were a bit too long, even though freddies offers plenty of things to do.

You are woken at 4:50am as there is a local mosque directly behind the rooms. You then have to wait until 10am to order breakfast from the menu unless you get the buffet option. The waiters all smoke, often while serving you. Freddie was smoking in the kitchen whilst preparing food. Food got cold whilst the staff had a cigarette. There is no non-smoking area in the whole restaurant. Food is bland and local cuisine was the worst we had during our month in Sumatra. The beach is rocky and the water was murky. There is a public toilet block directly under the restaurant and makes the whole place stink. Music is outdated (Celine Dion and worse) and Freddie needs to be more environmentally conscious - every drink is served with a plastic straw. Eon, the receptionist is the only positive thing in the whole place. Freddie needs to know what tourists expect in 2020.

I have been a regular guest at Freddies for quite many years and always loved to come back to that special place and always admired Freddie*s passion and dedication to that small paradise on earth.

Now everything is now changed. Freddie has left Freddies (!!) and together with him the special environment, atmosphere, service, quality, delicious food, peace etc. have also left the place. Besides that many, more rooms and bungalows have been built so now much more people there and consequently much more rush and noise.

I'm fully aware that the pandemic has been a huge challenge also for Freddies with nearly no international guests for about two years so of course also Freddies needed to adapt to the new situation where only local guests. However, I just do not understand why that also has led to reduced quality, service and cleaning.

At "old Freddies" the gourmet dinner was something that contributed to the very special Freddies atmosphere, because before, during and after the fantastic dinner guests got a chance to exchange experiences and recommendations for actives on the island etc. Often nearly like one big family. Now just ala carte menu (at a rather low quality) is served. Also no more buffet breakfast. But again, if no guests for that anymore I fully understand it have been dropped - but just disappointing for the international guests (especially when they expect that).

I think it would be fair if Freddies on the web page openly informed that Freddie has left and now new (probably Chinese) owners have taken over. This in order not do disappoint any guests that have been there before and set their expectations based on earlier (great) experiences.

However, the beautiful sea and beach is still there and (so far) no bungalows have been built there.

Overall, it is my sad view that focus has changed from quality, service and special atmosphere to quantity, volume, less service and normal local guesthouse atmosphere. In addition, it is my clear recommendation that if “new Freddies” again at a time wants to attract international guests many initiatives need to be taken.

Response from Freddie Rousseau, General Manager at Freddies Santai Sumurtiga
Responded 3 May 2023
Hello Eric, thank you for your review. Just one correction. I have not left. I am sitting here at the resort and look out over the beautiful Sabang ocean while I respond to your review. Nothing sinister and nothing hidden. I am here and will remain here for as long as I physically can. Yes, as you pointed out, our business can only cater for the guests we have. And as the profile of our guests change, so will we adapt to make sure that we take care of all our guests needs. International guests are slowly returning to Sabang, and so will we introduce special services they would like to enjoy. Warm regards Eric and take care, Freddie.

Good housekeeping, very helpful stuff and a good view to the Ocean.

Restaurant is not cozy and food is not really good. Moreover many times some food is not available. All the Time of my stay Indonesian Guests with kids are too loud very early in the Morning, that seems to be ok for Freddies. A very close accomodation offers a quite and much better Location with beautiful designed Restaurant, finest cooking and is not much more expensive.

Freddies Sabang was such a beautiful location, breathtaking views, clean and comfortable villa. The staff were very helpful and very welcoming. The restaurant was also fantastic, such beautiful views, a huge selection of food of different cuisine and reasonably priced.

There was an issue with hot water in our original villa bathroom but the staff immediately came out to investigate the matter, and when the issue couldn't be resolved within the time of our stay (due to parts not being available), they offered another (even more beautiful) villa for us to move to!

Overall, we highly recommend Freddies Sabang; it's definitely a place we would return to.

Idyllic place. The hotel rooms are comfy with shower and ventilator (no air con, at least in my room). The staff always nice and attentive. It’s a remote place so it has to be appreciated for the nature it offers, rather than from the comfort of the hotel itself.
The beach in front is just stunning, every morning I would wake up in disbelief. Get up early and catch the sunrise, it’s incredible.
Swimming can be difficult, shoes are strongly encouraged as the sea has a very rocky bottom with lots of dead coral, unfortunately.
The restaurant at Freddie’s is nice, with several local and international dishes. I recommend the avocado shake, the roasted chicken and the calamari.
Rent a motorbike and enjoy touring the island, it’s an unforgettable place.

Room and resto have a very good view of clear blue water overseeing straight of Malacca. However, room is warm because no aircondition and Sabang weather is hot and a bit humid. Staff is friendly and well train. May be its possible to install aircond in the future.

I love how the beach is not too touristy. The white sand and crystal clear water have never been so relaxing. The beach is perfect to read a book! A glass of pineapple juice makes your day! The beach is open for public, however it's a little hard to find public bathroom. We can use the one in the restaurant! Try the grilled calamary! Tasty.

Thank you for your message. Best time on Sabang is from March to October. November to February is our rainy season. But we are fortunate that even the rainy season is still good. We don't often get extended periods of rain. Which makes Sabang a good all year destination. Warm regards, Freddie.
