Macaronis Resort is like no other on earth.

Lush vegetation meets white sand beach that extends into clear warm water where perfect waves peel around the reef… this is the kind of place that dreams are made of!

Voted by the pros as the most fun wave to surf in the world, Macas is undoubtedly one of the world’s most consistent and rippable left-hand reef breaks.

Discovered in the 1980s and kept a secret for over a decade, Macaronis popularity skyrocketed when the word got out. The surf media still loves its every barrel, open face and air section, all of which make Macaronis one of the most sought after waves on earth.

Offering all-inclusive surf trip packages on a flexible year-round schedule. All guest accommodation is raised up from ground level with exceptional amenities and incredible 360° views of the lagoon and ocean. Most ground-level bungalows in the Mentawais do not have such wonderful sea-breezes and the comforts gained in a nicely insulated building.

We cater to the family surf holiday, where children under 6 are free and non-surfing & beginner guests visit at half price. For those who don’t surf, there are heaps of fun activities accessible right from the resort including snorkeling, stand up paddling, and jungle walks. Macaronis Resort is truly a little slice of heaven, come visit!

When to Come?

Macaronis Resort is Open Year Round!

April – October is regarded as the best time for surf in the Mentawai Islands and Macaronis. This is when the Indian Ocean is producing storms regularly and swell is the most consistent. May – September will likely book out the quickest.

March & November are considered shoulder months, where great surf can be scored with less people around.

December – February is the summer season, where glassy surf in the 2-4 ft range can still be found, with absolutely less crowds. Surfers visit Macaronis Resort for 30% off from December – February!

The best of times, the best of waves, the best of people, the best of service. Thanks once again for an amazing time I can’t commend enough your local and international staff. Macaronis remains the nicest place have ever traveled to and stayed for waves. The service and accommodation and hospitality provided by the crew only helps and solidify this. Two off seasons in a row, and I hope to make it a third!!!!

Thanks to everyone who worked and thought of absolutely everything to make this the best holiday we have ever had in our whole lives. Loved every moment, the waves are amazing! People are awesome, the food is so good! Everything so perfectly organized but still so casual and relaxed. We will definitely be back with our surfboards and big smiles as soon as we can.

Macas, you are the best wave in the world and I love you more than any other wave. I promise I’ll always remember the times we spent together… (especially that one night you blew side shore!)
