High-Quality Surf Resort in the Playgrounds Region

Hidden Bay Resort Mentawai sits in a pristine bay, right in the middle of the Playgrounds area of the Northern Mentawai Islands.

Located right in the middle of 24+ waves in the area, the resort is perfectly placed to get you in the spot for the wave of your life! The location, food, guiding, and onsite functional training centre, make for an incredible experience.

The Resort

Located just a short boat ride from Hideaways, Hidden Bay Resort sits on a stretch of unspoiled beach in the heart of the Playgrounds region. This location allows the resort to be within easy boat ride of all the best spots in the area!

The resort caters to a maximum of 12 surfers, keeping crowds low and the vibes high. Surf guiding on site is provided by experienced surf guides, that know every corner of the region. Quality surf guiding allows you to get the best waves possible for your level.

The resort complements the surf experience with functional training classes and throughout the year, high-performance training camps are available (chargeable extra)

Waves at Hidden Bay Resorts

Hidden Bay Resort sits in the ‘Playgrounds’ region in Northern Mentawai. They have access to 24+ waves by boat, so there are waves for all levels at all times of the year! Steep & hollow barrels, rippable walls, fun-sized waves, there is something for everyone to get stoked on.

The Peak season of May – October brings the largest swells, favoring the advanced to expert surfers, with the rest of the year serving up consistent head-high to overhead surf! Even in the peak season, intermediate-friendly surf can be found. Stand outs in the region are Kandui (world-class left), Rifles (Indo’s most perfect/fickle right), Hideaways (goofy footers dream), and many more! The expert surf guides will always get you into waves suitable for your level.

Why We Love Hidden Bay Resort

The Mentawai Islands have a lot more to offer than mind-blowing barrels! Explore the tropical reefs along the islands, go fishing, and hiking, jump on one of the boats and explore one of the many uninhabited Mentawai islands and more!

Surf Training

Throughout the season, Hidden Bay Resort plays host to advanced surf coaches. These are the perfect way to push your surfing to new limits. Please enquire about upcoming dates!

Getting there

After arriving in Padang, you would have to spend your first night in a hotel and catch Mentawai Fast Ferry the next morning. The ferry departs on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and takes around 4-hours to get to Siberut, where Driftwood staff will pick you up to bring you to the resort. Alternatively, for larger groups, private speed boat transfers are available to the resort!

Professional and Top Notch! From the moment we started planning our trip AWAVE was responsive and professional. We had a lot of back and forth picking the perfect location and resort and James and Giulia were patient and helpful. The resort we stayed at, AYADA in the Maldives, was beautiful and relaxing- great for families and couples! It was perfect for us- we have 1 surfer in the family, he was able to enjoy the waves and we also were able to enjoy the reef and snorkel as a family. Our kids loved the kids club and the private pool on the beach villas was amazing. The alcohol is expensive if you don’t do full board but that is to be expected. Wonderful vacation and amazing travel agency! Definitely recommend!!

I've used Awave twice ... so far. This is the second time I've used Awave for a trip to the maldives. Stayed in 2 different resorts this time. They've always been incredibly prompt at replying and handled everything for us, making sure the 2 Resorts were in touch to get us transfered half way through our trip. At one of the resorts I even bumped into Giulia and Delia who were out there surfing at the time. There's no doubt in my mind that I'll use awave again if I'm booking a surf trip

Indonesia Surf Trip/ Java/Bali/Sumba - James Colston was my representative from AWAVE - I’m an older solo surfer and James was attentive, respectful, extremely responsive from the initial planning stages all the way through the booking. And he was so patient with all my crazy questions along the way. I couldn’t have been more pleased with James’s level of service. Thank you James

Giulia was an amazing person to book with. I was overwhelmed with choices initially, but AWAVE knew their stuff and helped me with my options and even suggested delaying my trip so I could go to a certain hotel which ended up being the best decision I made all year.

Giulia and James were always on line to answer any question or to give an advice. The Ayada resort is perfect both for families or for couples. We did not have waves as the season goes from April to September, but there are plenty options to have fun and good times. Highly recommended both Awave and Ayada.

The AWAVE team are knowledgable and helpful. Giulia is a very helpful and patient person to deal with, and do not worry, you can trust her. I had to delay my trip to Morocco due to unforeseen circumstances and Giulia was very understanding. I have just returned from having a fantastic week at Amouage in Taghazout. Thanks AWAVE!
