I booked a trip to Playgrounds for 3 friends and myself completely unaware of what we were in for. What greeted us was 10 days in an idyllic location with some of the best waves we'd ever seen, improved even more by the hospitality of the staff at the resort. With every meal surpassing the next in terms of quality portions and taste, the food was simply unreal. Days consisted of surfing twice at a minimum with perfect guidance regarding which spot is optimal before retreating back to the air conditioned comfort of the rooms. Playgrounds is a simply a no brainer, an incredibly welcoming group of people who go above and beyond with there ongoing hospitality. We are already looking to return next year and for many more years to come. Do not hesitate as you simply can't miss the Playgrounds Surf Resort experience. Also a handy tip to bring some old t shirts/boardshorts for the local boys who work at the resort, they are always smiling, helping you get into the best waves of your life and were extremely appreciative to the boardies and tees we gifted them at the end of our stay.

I have been budget traveling around Indonesia for the last 4 months and decided to splurge on this resort in the Mentawais. This place exceeded my wildest dreams and is well worth the money! I was originally going to stay at a cheap accommodation near Ebay or Pitstops, but decided last minute that the extra money spent would be well worth the boat rides and better food. This proved to be true because Chef Alvaro cooks the best food in the Mentawais and the portions are huge! We’re talking fresh sashimi appetizers with buffet style food including chicken, beef, lamb, Spanish mackerel, tuna, and an assortment of different styles of potatoes sourced from the islands. The food here is the perfect mix of Indonesian staples (rice + curries) and all of the western meats and side dishes to keep you full after long days of surfing. After traveling around Indonesia and losing weight over the last 4 months, I actually gained back some kilos thanks to Alvaro’s cooking! Thank you Alvaro!! The staff was the other part that made this trip special. On the boat, Nando, Putra, and Rokon kept the energy high and took us to any spot we wanted. I stayed here for 14 nights and surfed more than 10 breaks. Also, compared to all of the other camps, our boats are in great condition and are super comfortable. This makes a difference when you’re on the wave hunt. Plenty of time spent in and around these boats surfing, spearfishing, and chilling on the roof drinking Bintangs. Good times! I could go on and on about how great this resort is, but if there is one thing I could tell to the prospective visitor, it is this: while the marketing content may not be up to the Kandui standard, don’t be alarmed, be enchanted! This camp flies under the radar but is the best I have seen in the Mentawais. Thanks again Gustavo! Also, shoutout Ria and Susanna in the kitchen. You two are lovely!

Love the place, the people, and the food. Will be back for sure. It’s important to have a good base and super food when surfing all day. Every meal was great. Even meat from ANZ and epic Brazilian specialties💪🍺🤙🏽🇧🇷

So I organised 13 of us to go on a lads surf trip, I was the only one who had been here before. And again it was awesome. The resort is great , and has all you need for a comfortable stay. It’s great having air con in the rooms because it is so hot and humid in the Mentawaiis. The beds are comfy and get made every day when the rooms are cleaned. The best part is the food. I love food and Alvaro the chef is awesome. There’s always plenty to fuel the tank after a couple of long surfs. The Sashimi was the best but taco night and the prawn pasta came in a close 2nd. The boat crews are onto it in finding both surf and fish , we had 2 surfs a day for our 10 day trip with fun rippable waves and I got to catch my first Spanish mackerel and a few coronation trout. All in all we had a fun relaxing trip with great food , accommodation , rippable waves , great company and heaps of banter amongst the lads. Definitely recommend this resort. Will be back there in no time
