Absolutely gorgeous resort! We stayed in a private ocean front facing room and it was absolutely lovely. Great aircon, comfy bed, large bathroom with a gorgeous view from the top! The food is incredible and the staff are attentive and so friendly. Emma and Liam are extremely good at their manager roles and ensure anything you need is taken care of. As a beginner surfer (my husband intermediate) there is a lot to do if you don't want to surf. Paddle boards, kayaking and snorkelling right in front of the resort off the beach. Love that you can take the scooters whenever you want! For me the attention to detail was amazing, water bottles in the bathroom, beach towels, shower gel and shampoo. Also the water bottle dispenser in the hallway. Also the personalised water bottles and branded bag were a treat! Highly recommend this resort and it is worth every last penny!

My family and I had the best Christmas at Hollow Tree's resort this past December. The location is stunning, the hotel has all the amenities you could ask for, the food was delicious (all day refined / healthy dining), Lance's right is just a magical wave and the hotel crew is simply amazing. I can only highly recommend this property to both couples and families! We will be back! Frantz

We had amazing time in Hollow Tree during our 1 week holiday. The resort is beautiful and perfect for those people who like quiet places. The rooms are nice and clean, the bed is super comfortable! The food is AMAZING, the chef is incredibly talented and we had so many choices every day. The staff is very nice and kind! There is a main surf spot in front of the resort but for those who do not surf, the front beach and ocean is calm and perfect for the swimming. The island itself is a true paradise if you like a wild nature. Yes, it is a bit complicated to get there but once you arrive, it is worth of all efforts. We absolutely recommend the resort!

I had a great week with my brothers. You can easily see the best waves of your life. Transportation from the airport in Padang to the hotel and from the hotel to the ship,The assistance in guiding you to the ship will also make you feel comfortable. The rooms at Hollow Tree's Resort are always clean and the air conditioning works comfortably,and bathrooms are always clean. The restaurant offers a wide variety of choices for breakfast and dinner, The locally harvested grills, such as mahi-mahi and tuna, are very tasty, The vegetables and fruits are all fresh and will amaze you. The waves, the rooms, and the food are all wonderful, though, But the best moments for me was the kindness of the staff. They are friendly and talk to you when you pass by them, I was impressed by the smiles on the faces of all the staff at all times. They also gave us detailed information about the best surf spots and times for the day's conditions, and even offered to take us to the spots by all-terrain vehicle or by boat. My first trip to Mentawai was great experience. I will definitely return to Hollow Tree's Resort as soon as possible.

Unforgettable Paradise. Beautiful location, Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable beds, delicious food. Staff was very attentive... and if Lances right wasn't working that day, they would plan a surf day trip for us by boat to either the Point, Lances left , or Telescopes. ...or fishing. I also had fun using the stand up paddle board, and snorkeling gear. A great group of international guests was staying there with us and we made friends from all over the world. Standouts on the menu : Fresh Grilled Mahi Mahi, Mexican pizza . Lamb ragu, Beef Rendang, Breaky Burrito, .... and the best Carrot cake I've ever tasted. Dont miss it. Also be sure to try the Watermelon Margaritas. -cd

HTS is absolutely amazing. The wave, staff, resort, food – you could not ask for a better surf trip. It's a challenging wave so be prepared, but there are a few waves to choose from in the area. The beach is beautiful and the common areas are very comfortable so even a non-surfer would have a nice time. I also have to shout out the team there. Absolutely lovely people all around. The food is excellent – you get spoiled eating your meals there.

The first day when we arrived to hts we already knew we want to extend! The resort is located in beautiful bay just in front of surfing spot. Water is crystal blue and white sand beaches.The surrounding is just magical. Resort itself has stunning food, we stayed there for two weeks and none of the dishes repeated. Lots of Fresh veggies and fruit! The staff is really helpful and caring. Sina and Teiki (the owners) are always around making sure all the guests are happy! They have a wolf pack of 5 lovely dogs. We were taking them everyday for long walks at the beach! When it comes to surfing there are plenty of options around for both professional and begginer surfers! I was going with a surf guide to a beach break on the other site of the island and to mini hts and really enjoyed long boarding ( thank you Dani !!) On the other side my boyfriend enjoyed hts and lances left where we were going by boat. We went on amazing fishing/ spearfishing trips and my boyfriend caught the biggest fish ever! Yaaay. What we really loved is that you can do plenty of different things around, explore the island, local villages! We really miss hts and can’t wait to be back! Jo & Bogs

Every time I think back to my 3 weeks spent at Hollow Tree’s, it feels like a dream. A distant dream of white sand beaches, lagoons with 100 shades of blue, coconut trees further than the eye can see... a true postcard-perfect picture. And of course, the most perfect wave I’ve ever surfed. All of it in the most comfortable environment you could imagine: beautiful bohemian, clean bedrooms; a private swimming pool; an Italian coffee machine; relaxing massages; the most scenic yoga deck ever, tucked in a tree overlooking the break; A-grade speedboats; adorable staff. And the food. The food! Best food I’ve ever eaten on a surf trip, hands down, even for a vegetarian like me. Hollow Tree’s really is just more than a surf resort, and it’s impressive how they pull off this high standard in such remote islands. Having been to a few surf resorts in the Mentawai, I can say Hollow Tree’s was the best one by far. Teiki, Sina and Janine, our hosts, are some of the most worldly and genuinely good-natured people I’ve ever met. They immediately made me feel home and were always so helpful, whether it was helping me with my work setup (I’m working remotely) or gently guiding me into the lineup of HT’s. Always good vibes, we shared stories and communal dinners which felt just like family. It was always my dream to come surf in these islands, and they made the dream come true. Thank you HT’s and I can’t wait to dream with you again.
