Wave Park consists of 26 named waves, and a number of secret spots only known by the best guides in the Mentawais. We are also the only resort to include in your price regular travel inter-island to look for waves and fish.

Wave Park Resort is special within the Mentawais for these reasons:
We have the highest density of good waves in the Mentawai Islands. Every wave is within a 30-minute speedboat ride from the resort. Every wind is offshore somewhere. This means that you will always be surfing clean waves if you want to. Our swell window is huge, from 240 SW through to 165 SE, our area rakes in the swell from the southern Indian Ocean.
Our waves are the closest Mentawai waves to mainland Sumatra, which means less travel time for you between your home and our perfect waves. We have waves that cater to beginners and professional surfers.We limit our guest capacity to 12 surfers, which means more waves for everybody! Every difficult wave has an alternate and easier wave nearby. This means we can split our group up for different surf abilities.
The resort is built in a traditional Mentawai style using sago palm thatched roofing and hardwood floors, with all materials for building been sourced locally from the surrounding islands. The island is 66 acres total, 9 of which have been cleared and landscaped using plants from the islands around us.
The bungalows are designed to accommodate a family of 4, two in a private bedroom, and 2 in a shared living room space. All have been made to feel like a tropical resort and come complete with custom furnishings. Wherever possible, or upon special request, we will be utilising the bungalows for only 2 guests at a time with priority going to return guests. We can accommodate 5 per bungalow upon request.
The bungalows have an indoor/outdoor bathroom, complete with a double vanity, a couple’s shower with hot/cold water and a western-style toilet.
