Located in northern Mentawai near the Playgrounds islands, the wave park offers 26 different waves to choose from that we have designated beginner, intermediate and advanced. We are proud of our extensive knowledge of secret Mentawai waves as well as Mentawai weather conditions; built up from our combined 31 years of experience hunting waves in the wave park area. With unrivaled speed and comfort between lineups you will get better surf, more often with less crowds. We are also the only resort to regularly travel inter-island to look for waves. With our new speedboat service, you’ll be able to reach telescopes, scarecrows, icelands and other nooks and crannies on the north coast of Sipora, over 20 nautical miles away, all included in your daily price!
Our tropical island resort is built in the local style with sago palm thatched roofing and hard wood floors. We are proud of our graduation from surf camp to resort designation, and strive to fulfill our Mentawai resort status. Officially opened and approved by the Governor of West Sumatra, our resort is government licensed to operate as an exclusive resort in the Mentawai islands until 2023, one of only three resorts in the world with this distinction.
If surfing the best waves of your life, sleeping on an exclusive tropical island, swimming, snorkeling and fishing in a gin-clear lagoon while making new friends sounds like your style.
The original secret surfing location and Mentawai adventure surfing resort in the Mentawai Islands, West Sumatra, Indonesia.
One of the most important goals at Wavepark is creating a Mentawai resort accommodation experience for our guests that exceeds their expectations. The photographs of our resort accommodation don’t do justice to the location; the sounds of waves lapping on the shoreline 20 meters away, palm fronds swaying in the breeze, or the sounds of birds in the jungle treetops. All of the buildings are made to feel like tropical resort accommodation, instead of feeling like a hotel anywhere else in the world. In our minds, it would be better for our guests to stay home than to travel all this way and feel like a busy business traveller staying in a hotel.
From our guest Stephen: “Next to sitting on the deck with a cold Storm Beer and watching the evening sun wash everything scarlet, the nicest things about the bungalow is being able to sit up in bed at first light and confirm the dull roar audible above the lapping of the shore break is Hideaways greeting the new day with a new swell.
Island comfort all thanks to the care Christie and Alice have taken to ensure the design, the furniture, the bathroom and the service are all first class.”
The bungalows are designed to accommodate a family of 4, two in a private bedroom, and 2 in a shared living room space. Wherever possible, or upon special request, we will be utilizing 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. Both bungalows are a stone’s throw from the water’s edge, and each is complete with twin reclining chaise lounge chairs for sitting on the beach in comfort. Hideaways is visible from each verandah and most of the beds in the bungalows.
WavePark Bar will always be the first and best-stocked bar in the Mentawais. With a dedicated bar tender ready to serve your cold beverages, you’re ready to watch the sunset over our beautiful bay. Once it is dark, enjoy reliving the day’s action on the big screen with photos taken by our full-time photographer, showing everybody’s triumphs and tragedies almost life size in the lounge of the bar. Bring your own duty free if you wish, you only need to pay for corkage and mixers to get your personal cocktail mixed everytime.
The restaurant looks out over the gardens the bay, and from the front steps you can see our homebreak breaking at the end of the bay. The binoculars provided will get you even closer to the spectacular waves, not 10 minutes walk from where you’re sitting.

The Wavepark contains 26 named waves, and some that we won’t talk about on this site because they are secret. New for 2013, we are also the only resort to include in your price regular travel inter-island to look for waves and fish. With our new 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:
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.

You won’t believe the swell refraction around the islands of the WavePark until you’ve been here. In some places we 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 we have a south swell running with a south wind. We can always get offshore and clean waves.
