The resort-owned speedboat ‘Sampan Baru’ ensures surfers get more waves, with less crowds, the ultimate goal for any surf trip in the Mentawai Islands. WavePark Mentawai is the only resort to regularly travel inter-island to look for waves, giving you access to more waves, all included in your surf package.
Kick back in your private island bungalow on the beach and enjoy everything WavePark Mentawai has to offer. With the sound of the waves lapping on the sand just a few steps away, these stunning local-style bungalows have everything you need to make your stay in the Mentawai Islands one to remember.
WavePark Mentawai was built locally, with all the materials sourced from the Mentawai Islands except the screws, bolts, nails and concrete. The bungalows perfectly capture the Mentawais vibe, with sago palm thatched roofing and hardwood floors as well as all the modern comforts.
The six well-built private bungalows are designed to accommodate two guests, or a family of four, when you utilise the living room space. For couples, there’s an option for a California king bed, that’s 2m x 2m! Each bungalow is equipped to accommodate a maximum of five guests upon request.
Each bungalow has a bed and sofa, as well as a 22v fan, in-room safe, wardrobes, an outdoor daybed and a mosquito net over the bed. Bungalows have an indoor/outdoor bathroom with a vanity, a couple’s shower with hot and cold water, and a western style toilet.
Step outside your bungalow and relax on the sand in one of the reclining chaise lounge chairs. The waves at Hideaways can be seen from each verandah and the beds within the bungalow, making it one of the best views on the island.
WavePark Mentawai’s bar and restaurant has stunning views of the bay and the local break, just a 10 minute walk from your table. Watch the sunset as you dine on Western and Asian cuisine and fresh-caught seafood.
Three meals a day are served in the dining room with a range of healthy options to keep your body fuelled for all your island adventures. The chef also caters for vegans, vegetarians and anyone with special dietary requirements.
Refresh and recharge with unlimited iced tea, ginger/lemongrass homebrew, fruit and herbal teas and fresh coconuts. If you’re looking for something a little stronger, the WavePark bar is fully-stocked and the dedicated bartender is ready to mix up a cocktail or serve you other ice-cold beverages. You can even bring out your own duty free alcohol and you’ll only be charged the corkage.
Surf WavePark Mentawai
The wave park contains 26 named Mentawai waves around the resort catering to all surfing abilities. WavePark is also the only resort to include in your price, regular travel inter-island to look for waves and fish. With their speedboat service, you’ll be able to reach Telescopes, Scarecrows, Icelands as well as other spots on the north coast of Sipora.
WavePark Resort is special within the Mentawais for these reasons:
- The highest density of good waves in the Mentawai Islands. Every wave is within a 30min speedboat ride from the resort.
- Every wind is offshore somewhere. This means that you will always be surfing clean waves if you want to.
- The swell window is huge, from 240 SW through to 165 SE. This area rakes in the swell from the Southern Indian Ocean.
- The waves are the closest Mentawai waves to mainland Sumatra, which means less travel time for you.
- There are waves that cater to beginners and professional surfers. Guest capacity is limited to 12 surfers.
- Every difficult wave has an alternate and easier wave nearby. Groups can be split up for different surfing abilities.
You won’t believe the swell refraction around the islands of the WavePark until you’ve been there. In some places you can surf waves where the swell is breaking 180 degrees from where it came from. Basically the swell is doing a huge U-turn and ending up groomed on a reef for your enjoyment. This is handy especially when there is a south swell running with a south wind. WavePark will always find you offshore and clean waves.
There’s something for the whole family at WavePark Mentawai. When you’re not surfing, the resort offers a variety of all-inclusive non-surf activities to keep you occupied in and out of the water. Whether it’s relaxing in the day spa, or trekking across the island, you and your family will always have something to do.
