raw power of the Indian Ocean and postcard perfect coconut tree lined island all tied together to enjoy to the max by amazing people at MSR! Top notch guides, well organized and on point with getting our crew into waves. Prime location, bungalows with a perfect view of Pitstops right from your porch. Food was absolutely incredible as well. Small group booking made it extra special when breaking bread, drinkin Bintangs and sharing stories with the MSR crew. Pure stoke!

Everything about Mentawai Surf Retreat exceeded my greatest expectations. Having a perfect shreddable wave right out front was a real treat, the food was exquisite and the staff was highly knowledgable of all the surrounding breaks. I would recommend MSR to anyone considering a trip to the Northern Ments. Great staff, great food, great waves.

Excellent food and location, rooms are clean and team is great. Always giving best options according to surf conditions. If you just want to relax the wave in front of the huts is working most of days and suited for all levels of surfing! I will be back.

MSR seems to have three main priorities: 1- Get you into the best waves with the least people on them. 2- Feed you the most award winning best food in all the Mentawai. 3- Treat you like family the entire time. Can't say enough good things about the place and would come back in a heartbeat. Would choose MSR over all the other operations in the Mentawai simply because of these three feats of service where I see a lot of other operations that are focused on quantity of guests, super budget accommodations and food and overpriced amenities you don't need. 10/10 operation.

Amazing remote location with the best wave right in front of our window, you can check the surf from your balcony and jump on the wave any time of the day. Super fun and loving atmosphere in the camp, felt like family. One of a kind to find a place like that on this planet

Such an amazing team, such an amazing island such an amazing experience! We all knew there was going to be great surf, but we were never expecting such a remarkable stay at Mentawai Surf Retreat. Vere, Marjiolen, and the entire MSR crew made us feel right at home from day one. The food was exceptional! The sunset drinks were memorable. It was so much more than great surf. Thanks for everything team!

Had a blast! Vere, super, Tom and the crew were amazing. Incredible waves, excellent food and great company. There’s a rad break right outside the bungalows - and if it’s not working the crew will search out the best waves suited to your ability. 10/10 trip

Five mates on the trip of a lifetime. Great waves to suit the varying abilities in our group, unbelievable food, welcoming crew and the local knowledge from the surf guides was exceptional. MSR in in a beautiful setting with a great right hander at the front door. Icy cold beers and a photo slideshow to finish the day, memories to cherish. Vere we cant wait to get back!

This is the 3rd time we've been back and it's still every bit as amazing as the first time. With it's superb location, reliable consistent quality waves and the perfect hosts, it's now senseless to explore anywhere else. You will not be disappointed!
