Luxury Resort a stone’s throw away from Hollow Tree’s

Hollow Tree’s Resort is just a stone’s throw away from one of the Mentawais premier waves Hollow Tree’s (also known as Lance’s Right). Since it was first surfed by the pioneers of the Mentawais, Hollow Trees has been the poster child of the Mentawais, churning out perfect right-hand tubes for the lucky surfers that make the trip!

Hollow Tree’s Resort allows you to surf this incredible wave with all of the comfort and convenience you would expect from a quality surf resort. The rooms are large and spacious and are seconds away from the beach! Hollow Tree’s Resort is perfect for bringing partners and the family along to experience the magic of the Mentawais!

The Resort

Situated on the remote Sipora Island in the Mentawais, Hollow Tree’s Resort is located within reach of 10 world-class waves, with the standout right-hander, Hollow Trees (Lance’s right) just a short paddle over the lagoon from the bungalows! All the accommodation is scattered along the beachfront of Katiet beach with a total of 8 rooms in 4 stand-alone villas.

The resort also offers the stunning Villa Onu, a 4 bedroom beachfront villa for larger groups and families. A property of this size and quality is unheard of in the Mentawais! Hollow Tree’s Resort allows you to experience the beauty and remoteness of the Mentawai Islands, whilst having all the comfort and service to make for a relaxing and revitalizing trip!

Waves at Hollow Tree’s Resort

Hollow Tree’s Resort has access to some of the best waves in the Mentawais. Right out front is Hollow Tree’s (Lance’s Right), a picture-perfect right-hander that serves up some of the best tubes in the region, watch out for the ‘Surgeon’s Table’ at the end, a shallow reef platform that catches out those who don’t exit early enough! Around the corner, you have Lance’s Left, a long, consistent left-hander working in opposite winds to HT’s.

Cobras is an A-frame peak breaking nearby to Lance’s Left, offering good left-hand barrels. Nearby is Bintangs, a shallow dredging right-hander that on medium swells offers short right barrels and is playful in smaller swells. There are a load more waves to be explored with the surf team onsite, meaning there is always a wave to be found for your level!

Why We Love HT's Resort

World-class Hollow Tree’s on your doorstep. HT’s is one of the best right-hand barrels in the world and should be on every surfers ‘must surf’ list!

The villas are bright, airy, spacious, and beautifully designed. Perfect to come back and relax in after a long day of surfing!

The onsite restaurant’s food. Hollow Tree’s Resort knows how important food is to a surf trip. They really go the extra mile with the quality of food that they serve up!

The Rooms

Hollow Tree’s Resort has designed its villas to reflect the simple life on Sipora Island. All of the interior features have been built using recycled wood or sustainable natural materials. The whitewashed walls and ceiling give the feeling of space and large windows allow natural light to fill the living areas.

All rooms come with their own large ensuite bathrooms with hot water at all times. Air conditioning is also installed in all rooms for your comfort. Every villa also comes with its own swimming pool for you to relax beside and take a dip!

Villa Onu

Villa Onu is unique in the Mentawai Islands. This is one of the only full-sized 4 bedroom luxury villas available in the islands. This is the perfect place to bring larger groups of friends, for families looking for an amazing trip or for couples looking to have complete privacy. With 4 large bedrooms, 2 which look out over Hollow Tree’s, a huge dining area and even a cinema room!

The Cuisine

Choose something savoury or sweet from the mouthwatering menu, which has been carefully created to reflect the unique flavours of Indonesia. You will also find a wide range of French and Thai dishes, from pasta dishes to tom yum goong (spicy shrimp soup) and pad Thai (Thai-style fried noodles). Lunch and dinner is served buffet-style, allowing you to fill up on as much food as you can put away!

Perfect presentation and service with a smile is guaranteed for everyone who dines at our restaurant. Start your day with coffee, fresh fruit and eggs/bacon, before indulging in a delectable fresh seafood platter or traditional Indonesian dishes, such as Nasi Goreng or Rendang. Conclude your dining experience by sinking your teeth into a scrumptious dessert. HT’s chef, Saka, recommends the crème brûlée.

Activities

When you’re not surfing the perfect waves in the area you have a wide range of activities to try! Guest can snorkel the reefs, hike through the interior of the island, fish (both from land and boats), explore with kayaks, and cruise around the lagoon on the resort’s Stand Up Paddle boards. There is always something to do at Hollow Tree’s Resort!

Yoga

We booked a trip to Niyama Maldives (13 - 20 May 2022) with Awave.

Before deciding to go to Niyama I had close contact with Giulia about what would be the best resort for that season. Giulia responded almost immediately and gave us good and detailled advice about the surf and of course also about the resort.

We had a great trip! The resort was just prefect as well as the service! Unfortunately the waves were a bit choppy and the wind cross/ onshore, but that's mother nature....... (and May is a very difficult month for the Maldives). We still surfed every day in fun size waves and had a great time.

Would definitely recommend Niyama as well as booking with Awave!

Great communication, fantastic care and attention from James who is very knowledgeable and approachable, and the product recommended to us as an alternative, Ayada, was a real paradise. We had very high expectations and we were really impressed with everything (apart from the the quality of the surfboards for hire). :)
