Sincere thanks to Vere and his team for giving me the experience of a lifetime. You always found the best wave for my ability, encouraged me when it looked too big, took the most unbelievable photos that now line my study and made us feel like we were a small family on on holiday for the week. Sure the rooms were great, the food was unbelievably good but in the end it was the perfect waves and your amazing staff that I will remember for many years to come. Miss you all!!! Cal

Wow - what a trip! 10 days of amazing surf, incredible food and a whole lot of bintangs. Vere, Super, Tom and the crew do an awesome job running an amazing camp and finding the best waves for our group. It was a shame to leave!

Had an incredible trip to MSR at the very start of the season. Perfect waves everyday without crowds. Resort was comfortable and relaxing and food was delicious. Staff could not have been nicer and made sure we had the best time ever! Thank you and see you next time!

I returned from 10 days at Mentawai Surf Retreat less than a week ago. Take me back! I travelled with four mates and we had the best 10 days of surfing, relaxing, adventure and good times you could ever ask for. The crew of Vere, Marjolein (Super Mario), Tom, Aggy, Ahn, Jacob and the rest were great fun, the service was excellent, the food fantastic (I think i put on weight), the setting is paradise and the experience is one that should not be missed. I cannot speak highly enough of all aspects of MSR and highly recommend it. We all miss the afternoon Bintang at the Table of Knowledge or on the boat on the way back from another surf, plus we all miss the MSR family. Thanks guys for making this trip even more awesome than we ever expected.

The staff at the Ment surf retreat went above and beyond to make our trip special. We didn’t get text book Ments surf, but our surf guides made sure that we were into the best waves on offer. The food and accommodation was spot on. Vere (Thor), Leo, JEFFRO and Kazza were all classic and made our trip a bag of laughs. Personally it was a great feeling knowing that those guys were there to help if things got heavy. Ment surf retreat is a very well run business with a great relaxed feeling. Vere and Leo if you guys are ever in Aus please look me up and we’ll have beer and a wave. Kaz: Next road trip up north I’ll pop into Coffs for a coffee. JEFFRO: Love to catch up for a wave brother. If you’re ever heading south let me know. All in all great trip and we’ll be back.🤙🤙🤙 Deano.

I had an amazing time at the Mentawai Surf Retreat and cannot recommend it highly enough. The surf was incredible and the guides did a fantastic job of evaluating the skill of our group and taking us to the perfect waves. We scored great waves every day and more often than not we were the only ones out there. The guides were also a tremendous help in the lineup giving us suggestions on where to sit and doling out super helpful tips to progress our surfing. By the end of the trip they felt like old friends. The camp itself is simple but perfect. The bungalows are comfortable and the main restaurant/lounge area is beautiful. Also, it overlooks an amazing wave in Pitstops and it's super fun to have a Bintang and watch your buddies on the wave at the end of the day. Also,

The crew, Vere, Marjolien, Leo, Aggy, Peter and others were thoughtful and uber professional. The surf guides provided invaluable advice, even paddling with us with verbal real time encouragement and guidance.They treated us like family and was truly delightful to engage with them during the surf sessions and meal times. Value wise, it’s unbeatable for what you get. I’m a foodie and the meals were better than most San Francisco restaurants. Vere’s photo package was superior to most wedding photographers and the work he puts into his profession is unmatched, patiently padding in fins for 2-3 hours to get the rare watershots through a fisheye lens while I caught the rare wave due to my average ability. It’s a must buy option in my opinion. I felt like a celebrity. He loves

This place deserves 6 stars, its that dam good! From the moment we arrived, Vere and his crew were amazing! After a rough and long boat ride over from Padang, we were greeted with a cold beer on the house, an amazing dinner and a good nights sleep. On our first day, it was an early rise at first light to surf Pit Stops - right out front, followed by an epic breakfast and a briefing by our amazing surf guides Vere, Marjolein and Jeff. Straight away, after a short boat trip, we were out surfing some of the best waves of our lives! Super fun surf and warm water! This was the general consensus from day to day, Eat, surf, nap, surf, eat, beer. What a life! Everything about this resort is top notch, the food is 5 star, the surf is epic and having pit stops right out front is a

The boys at MSR know how to put on a show! The surf guides helped look for waves (even when we got a run of bad southerly wind), they sent the boat everywhere looking for waves for us. When we got waves the guides helped with lineups, takeoff spots and how to beat the crowds. The food was awesome, and loads of it, every night was a treat.

I have never reviewed on Trip Advisor before and signed up especially to do a review for MSR. If you want to go somewhere that cares about you as an individual - MSR is your place. MSR will ensure all the guests are happy and catered for. After coming here for a few years I can honestly say it makes you a better surfer and for me personally it reignites my stoke for surfing. Surfing back home can be a grind sometimes but I come home wanting to improve and surf more and to continue to work on the tips and tricks the guys and gals of MSR give you every session. Thank you MSR, you bloody legends. Looking forward to being back again and advocating for your epic region, epic waves and for the great people that really care and don't just say they do!
