Coming to Wave Park was my first time in the Mentawais, and the dream delivered in a big way. Yes, it took more than a day to get there. No, I didn’t use my cell phone or the internet for a week (and was thrilled about it). Yes, I had an amazing time, even as a non-surfer in a playground... More

Dear Alice, Thank you very much for your great review. It was a pleasure to host you and get to know "the name twin". We're humbled that you would consider spending your vacation days with us, even though you don't surf. We're hoping that more non-surfing guests realize what we have to offer, because Mentawai has yet to get a... More

It is very difficult to go from Peru to Mentawai ... but totally worth it! the best waves, best company, best food, best guide (thank you very much Shane) and definitely one of the most beautiful resorts I've been in my life. Thanks for everything WavePark Resort! I hope to return as many times as I can!

The only reason to go out to this remote island chain is to get the wave of your life. The best reason to go back is the Wave Park resort. The people here are why, guests are treated like family. The surf guides will make sure you get the best waves at the right time with the smallest crowds, they... More

The best location in the Mentawais, amazing island that is picture perfect, its hard to describe the feeling you get when you first arrive, white sand beach with swaying coconut trees. not to mention the friendly greeting from wavepark staff on arrival, who always had smiles on their faces. The accommodation is locally built thatched bungalows, which are amazing and... More

Running a surf resort in the middle of nowhere is really hard. You might think that last Monday at work was really hard, or teaching your dog not the defecate on the bed was really hard.

I was planning this trip for a year, and I was unsure if it would be correct since we are just learning to surf; myself and my two children (11 and 13 years).

As a surfer, I think you always find yourself in a state of internal conflict when you discover an out of the way location or wave that seems as close to perfect as possible but is not in the popular travel/surf guides; Do I adopt the selfish approach and admit to no one how good it is in the hope...
