What to Expect

Guests staying at Hollow Trees Resort will have direct access to Lances Right aka Hollow Trees or HT's. A wave that has graced the cover of countless magazine covers and surf flicks, this crown jewel is the reason so many surfers make the long pilgrimage to the Mentawai Islands. Fast, hollow and picture perfect, its a wave that only dreams are made of and it's just steps away from your villa.


The obvious focus is on HT's as its right in front of the camp, but it's also worth noting that guests will have unlimited access to 2 other world class waves in Lances Left a long a consistent left as well as Bintang'sa short & hollow yet user friendly right hander.
