My week at the Mentawai Surf Retreat was the best week of my surfing life ! The staff at MSR are warm, friendly and most importantly knowledgeable about local surf conditions - so if you want to surf the best waves with the least amount of people in the water MSR are your best option in the Ments. Plus once you return to the camp the food is great, the beers are plentiful and Pittstops is a stones throw away : )

If you enjoy being the first to arrive at an empty perfect breaking wave - this is the place to go to! And if you just want to have an easy evening/ morning surf - there is a fun wave in front of your bungalow. The whole crew at Mentawai Surf Retreat is great and very helpful. Food and accommodation excellent!

Obviously the trip is about surfing and MSR is perfectly located to get you plenty, especially with Pitstops right out front. But what makes MSR such a great place to stay is the staff. Vere and the rest of the MSR crew make every aspect of your stay memorable. Incredible attention to detail with the lodgings, the grounds, surf knowledge, transportation, and provisions. They all truly care about making everyone’s trip an amazing one. Case in point. I was one of the first Vegans, if not THE first, to visit the retreat apparently. Each meal was meticulously planned, tasted awesome, and far exceeded my expectations. But I was even more impressed by how much time and effort went in to planning for just a single guest. Thanks MSR for an all time trip.

Literally cant get better than this. No words needed to convince who ever is considering a trip to MSR. Just buy your ticket and book. The team will take care of you from there on out. Thanks Vere! See you soon.

2019 was my 5th or 6th trip to Mentawai Surf Retreat, and there are a number of reasons I keep coming back. The people, the waves, the food, the accommodation, the good times, this place has it all! Bungalow style set up with waves right out front, two boats to take you wherever the waves are ( if they aren't out front, or you want a change). This is a well run camp with a great local crew who look after you so well, the food is fantastic. It is a no fuss place to go where it is all about surfing, eating, drinking, sleeping, surfing and more surfing. Good management is critical in Indonesia and this place is well sorted, you get collected from the airport, taken to the boat, collected at the end, it is all done for you and makes for a relaxing trip. The two camp boats run whenever you want to surf and the guides ensure you are in the best place at the right time for your ability.

Returning guests are our biggest compliment! And those who have returned for 5 years or more speak volumes. For us, we live and breathe surf stoke, but you know that already. From the moment you set foot on our beach, you become part of the family. It's been a pleasure for us to host you each year and we're looking forward your trip again next year. See you soon!
