First time over seas and I wouldn't of wanted to go anywhere else, best people, best food, best waves. Over all, best 10 days of my life I think!

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

Hi JJ, that has to be our best review ever, thank you very much. I love the level of detail that you're sharing with everybody, so they know what to expect on their holiday with us. Thanks also for leading the charge with the Ocean's teams. It was great to host Mark again this year after 4 years away, and... 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! I am a non surfer but still had the best time ever! I was happy to read books, swim, fish, snorkel, get some lessons in body boarding with Christie, try and... More

Christie, Alice, Shane and all the crew work tirelessly and thoughtfully to provide an amazing and complete experience. The island is a beautiful location and the wavepark resort blends tastefully and immaculately into its idealic surrounds. This was my second trip to wavepark and I can certainly attest to the fact that the number and variety of quality waves in... More

Hi Mark, Thanks for the great review. It really adds to the job satisfaction to hear how happy our guests are at the end of their trip. We were stoked you could come back and join the Jimmy James tour again. The "Ocean's '11" original team will always be the best, but we appreciate y'all trying to bring it up... More

Myself, my husband and our 10 month old daughter went to Wave Park in March. My husband had been there before on a boys surf trip and loved it. He raved about how amazing it was there. So after I had our daughter we decided to go on a family holiday there. We had the most wonderful time at Wave... More

This was the most amazing place I have wver had the pleasure of visiting.
