Great place, great food, best service and total know-how of the breaks all around the area. They will find the best waves for you. Since the booking, reception in padang and even tips for your way back home or next stop on the trip... This was the third time already, and wanna go back many times.

The best waves, best accommodation, best food and best service ever. The only problem is trying to pace yourself so you have the energy to do it all again the next day. Thoroughly recommend a visit for any surfer - has perfect waves for all levels of ability and the guides willing to take you there.

Hi apidgeon, Cheers for a great review; "best ever" is saying a lot! We used to try to convince our guests to pace themselves the first couple of days, especially when we knew that a bigger swell was coming soon. It never worked though, and I realized that frothing surfers don't want to hear somebody telling them not to catch... More

I've just returned from my second trip to WavePark Mentawai and once again I couldn't have asked for a better trip. We had a huge swell come through and although it was mostly too big for our group on two days, Shane and the team had us in great waves every session. The quality of accomodation (villas for two), sensational... More

Hi Rhodesy, great to have you back on the island again, and extra thank you for bringing new friends with you. We hope they had a great time on your recommendation. It seems like we certainly had enough swell to impress them! Thank you for appreciating the changes we've made since the last time you were here. Our goal is... More

Hey Matt, thanks so much for the great review and the good words of advice for future guests. You forgot one critical one about avoiding the reef though, "don't fall off!" Although we do provide plenty of first aid supplies at no additional cost to our guests, we do have a recommended first-aid kit for those that want to be... More

Second time to 'the park' and cannot recommend highly enough. The quality of hospitality and locale to all waves made us the envy of any other surfers we bumped into. Be it the waves or just chilling out the trip was exceptional across all levels. Superb.

Hey CS, thanks for taking the leap of faith with JJ and booking in at WavePark this year. I realize sometimes our return guests set expectations so high, it seems like it could never be as good as they make out. JJ is our best disciple! It sounds like it was worth every penny for you, which makes us happy... More

I've been to Wavepark five times, and I've just booked my sixth trip for 2016. As you may be able to gather, I love this place! The question is, what elevates Wavepark above the other resorts? Let me answer that one for you... 1. EXPERIENCE. Christie has been in the Mentawais for 19 years. He's ridden every break (both well... More

My boyfriend Tim had visited the Mentawai Islands before but this was our first trip to WavePark Mentawai Resort. It was the most amazing few weeks, an unforgettable holiday!
