Hollow Tree Resort
Hollow Tree’s Resort is located on Sipora Island in the Mentawai Archipelago, West Sumatra, Indonesia. With white sandy beaches, brilliant blue waters and about 10 of the world’s finest waves in our vicinity, the Mentawai’s has by no accident become an ever-expanding and popular holiday destination for surfers and eco-tourists from all walks of life. HT’s, short for “Hollow Tree’s” and also known as “Lances right”, was discovered in the early 70’s and named by surfers due to the huge hollow tree standing tall on the reef. In 1999 a huge swell tore the tree down, leaving only the legendary name. The resort's property stretches over 150 meters of absolute beachfront land with the world-class HT’s surf break directly in front of the resort. All four villas are positioned directly on the beach 20 meters from the waters edge. Complete with AC, TV’s, hot showers, mini-bar fridge and in-room safes.
Hollow Tree’s Resort provides a shared accommodation of eight rooms in four villas. Maximum capacity per room up to two people – total of sixteen to eighteen people. Both double and single beds available. All villas are a combination of modern and natural design. Every villa provides its own private dip pools with AC, TV, hot water, mini fridge and in-room safes.
The restaurant concept is a combination of French, Thai and Indonesian cuisine with stunning views of the most famous HT’s waves. Maximum capacity of 30 people. Lunch and dinner will be served buffet style, and for breakfast you can order from our mouthwatering menu. We also have a refreshing list of freshly squeezed juices and smoothies available.
Hollow Tree's, known locally as HT’s or Lance’s Right, in short is one of the best and most consistent fast, barrelling right-handers in the world and our resort looks straight out over it. You are welcome. The wave wraps around the south end of the island and into the sheltered bay where it unloads on the reef known as The Office and finally the Surgeon’s Table. As the name suggests, this wave is for intermediate and advanced surfers and rated as one of the top five waves in the world. With 10 world-class waves within a short boat or bike ride from our resort, there’s surf to suit all levels. Or if you don’t want to hit the waves, then simply enjoy a tropical paradise and watch the action unfold from the beach.
