WavePark Mentawai Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Absolutely spectacular place for the waves, the beauty, the quality of the resort and the service. There was always a wave no matter what your level and Christy, Shane and Joe were always spot on with their predictions. Definitely going to try and go back while the whole area is still so unspoilt. Christy and Alice really have created a special place.

Hi Simon,
thanks for your great review. We've noticed that you've put only 3 stars for value. We would like you to share with you a couple ways that we have increased value since your stay in August 2013:
1) We haven't increased our price during the last 3 seasons, while increasing our service and facilities considerably. Although we normally increase our price incrementally to account for Indonesian price inflation, we have continued to offer the same rates throughout.
2) We are now offering "Late and Early Season" trips. The discount is 45% off our regular season rates, but we only take 10 guests at a time. The facilities and service on the island remains the same. The only difference between early/late season and regular season is that we use the public ferry to get our guests from Padang - Mentawai instead of our private speedboat. We pass the savings on not running the speedboat onto our clients.
We hope that you will return again and give us a chance to show you that our client's value for money has considerably increased since the last time you were here. Until then, Cheers!

Every expectation was either well met or well exceeded. Every aspect, from fairy-tale waves, the ultimate in friendly service, lifestyle comforts (in particular the new boat, the Sampan Baru - nothing like rocking up to a wave location, sound system cranked, while everyone else is in dug-out canoes! The full, chilled esky on the way home is the way to go too!), beautiful island location beyond imagination, glorious food and fantastic accommodation.
The real bonus is "Hideaways" directly in front of our bungalow. If the tide is right you can paddle out at 1st light and get a good couple of hours before the boats arrive and have one of the best waves in the area with only the island crew on it.
Charge or cruise, old or young, there is a wave nearby for every style of surfer, and Wavepark is the ultimate place to be based to take advantage of the surfer's smorgesbord.
I have never looked forward to a return visit as much as I am regarding WavePark.

Forget the rest. Go to the best. Sensational waves, location, accommodation, food and service. Thanks to Shane, Skinny, Lisa, Clarky and the local Indo crew. You don't have to be a great surfer. You just have to wanna surf and they will find the waves to suit your ability. As Arnie says: 'I'll be back.'

Hi Trev,
Yeah, that was a great trip, and thanks for the kind words. We're stoked you enjoyed the team that we put together. Not sure if you knew, but Skinny and Lisa broke up? Neither here nor there, but I thought you should know. Skinny still comes around once a year to help us in the kitchen, and Clark is coming this season to help us surf guide after a years' absence (he got a girlfriend...) Drop us a line if you're interested in a reunion trip, cause there is a small window we could make it happen. Cheers!

I just spent 11 days at Wave park Mentawai's and it was the best surf trip i have experienced. Wave Park has its own left hander (Hideaways) out the front of the resort which is an advanced wave but will suit most surfers at high tide.
Wave Park go out of thier way to make your holiday as hassle free as possibly, they are very aware of where to surf at what time and have the boats to surf spots that most of the other resorts can not get to.
The food is excellent, the staff are as good as you will get and and the accomodation is also excellent. They make you feel that this resort is your home while you are there, I cant wait to go back, next time hopefully with my sons who both surf.
If you are looking at different options you wont go wrong with Wave Park, i highly reccommend it.

Going to the Mentawais was a dream I have had since I was a kid and saw Nias on the cover of surfing magazine. Since it was only in my dreams I had no idea what to expect. I have been fortunate in my life to travel to a number of dream surf destinations and this trip delivered in every way one could imagine. Aside from the perfect wave right out front, amazing scenery, first class accommodation, the staff at Wavepark makes for the perfect surf trip. I honestly could go on for ever but all you need to know is that Wavepark makes for the best vacation ever from the moment you arrive in Padang to the day you leave they have it dialed in. The cherry on top is the food is delicious. Having been a chef my whole life I was amazed with all the difficulties they face being on an island how awesome the food was and different everyday. Christie , Alice , the surf guides and everyone on the island could not have been better. If you are thinking about it just do it! You will not regret anything about it! Can't wait to go back!!!!!
