Hi my name is Christie Carter and I’d like to welcome you to the Mentawai Islands and to our resort which we call WavePark.
We understand that time is the most precious thing in all of our lives and we aim to make sure that your time at WavePark is as memorable as possible. We’ve been building our resort and hosting guests since 1998 and were the first resort in the Mentawai Islands.
The best thing about WavePark is our location. We have an 80 acre private island right in the middle of the one of the most wave rich areas in the world. There is a great wave for surfing right out front and we are surrounded by epic waves like Rifles, Kandui, Ebay, Bankvaults and Playgrounds? We also surf Telescopes, Scarecrows and Icelands in a different part of Mentawai. Whether you’re a charger, beginner or anywhere in between, there is an abundance of waves that will suit your level of surfing. You will definitely go home surfed out.
Another comment we hear often is how much private space we have built into each bungalow. All 5 bungalows face Hideaways, one of the most incredible waves in the world, right on our doorstep. You can check the surf from bed when you wake up in the morning!
We have the best house reef in northern Mentawai, which starts 20m from any of the bungalows and is perfect for snorkeling. If the fish are biting, you can catch some tuna, mahi mahi and trevali and the kitchen will serve it up as sashimi, ceviche, bbq or steamed. Swimming, kayaking and SUP happen in the flat water lagoon right out front and the kids are safe playing in the shorebreak. We have Ping pong, billiards, volleyball, patonque, Frisbee golf and a great library.
The food at WavePark is varied with Indonesian and western dishes and you’ll never have the same meal twice.
Whether you’re single, a family with kids, a couple, or travelling friends, we’re working to ensure that all of our guests become return guests.
We look forward to providing you with an unforgettable stay in the Mentawai islands.
