When it comes to dream surf trips, a stay at a Mentawai resort has to be a solid addition to your bucket list! And why not spend your time surfing HTs and other surrounding world class waves at Hollow Trees Resort – aka HTs Resort.
This epic Mentawai resort is the epitome of barefoot luxury – with ocean front accomodation, palm trees swaying in the breeze and of course a world class right hander right on your doorstep!
Yup, the famous Lances Right (aka HTs) sits an easy paddle out from the resort and can handle a huge range of swells. From mellow days right through to spitting overhead barrels.
And of course, as you’d expect from any Mentawai resort you’ll have speedboat transfers to all the surrounding surf breaks too – which include the likes of Lances Left, Cobra, Bintangs and beyond – catering for all levels of surfer and styles.
Even if you’re a beginner surfer or want to take a lesson there’s some fun waves around to get you stoked and the resort can easily sort some surf lessons too – which makes it the ideal Mentawai resort for experienced surfers travelling with not so experienced partners, family or friends.
The clean and comfortable villa style rooms come kitted out with A/C – so you can easily escape the tropical heat and get a good nights sleep after another hard day in paradise.
Choose from either a double or twin room – each with their own private plunge pool for your slice of island bliss.
When you’re not surfing HTs and the other epic waves on offer, the resort itself has all the facilities you need to relax in comfort – including in house restaurant and bar, masseuse, yoga classes, hammocks, plenty of communal space and heaps of snorkel gear, SUPs and yoga mats to fill your non surfing time.
Or you could grab a scooter and go explore more of your epic island base.
And if you don’t want to lug your surf gear to the island they’ve also now partnered with Away Co to offer a range of ChanneI Island Surfboards for all levels and conditions – so you can pre book them before you arrive.
Simply put – you’ve got everything you need for the perfect Mentawai surf trip, so what are you waiting for?!
