M.I.A Surfcamp has two traditional bungalows that sleeps up to 8 guests. Bungalow one is a studio style, that is spacious, with western style bathroom, pillow top mattresses and spacious balcony; bungalow 2 is a two bedroom bungalow with the same features as the other, but both rooms can be transformed to a couples room when requested. Both Bungalows have the view of all five breaks. We only resort in the Mentawai Islands which can lay claim having five waves right in front of camp, with Nipussi being the most consistent wave in the "playgrounds" area, along with M.I.A Peak which you can almost guarantee to surf that on your own, The Klit and Piggybanks, both shallow right-hander slabs that are perfect for confident surfers and body-boarders; and legendary Bankvaults, which people travel all over the world for their chance to get this break at it's best. Speed-boat is included in the price as there are another 25+ breaks in the area. We also have an experienced surf-guide to maximise your surf count along with a photographer and photo's are available to purchase to take home proof on what an epic trip you had.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Awesome location, awesome people sic waves, and not a worry in the world. Cabins and beds very comfortable and an awesome job by staff to clean and make beds every day. The food was exceptional and there was always a good supply of Bintangs chilled and ready for when you come back from a surf. Kylie, Shannon and team were great hosts and will hopefully see them again soon. "I'll be back!"

We had a great time staying at MIA in October '17. All the staff were super-friendly, rooms and food were great, and having most consistent wave in area right out front was just fantastic. Our group was a bit older than what owner Shannon and our surf guide Stu were probably used to; but they couldn't have been more obliging and helpful. Ments are just a magic place with incredible wave options & MIA is an great choice offering excellent value for $. Would love to get back there soon. Cheers guys, Kevin B

Just did 10 days with the six mates, perfect position on the island with the most consistent wave on the island at your bedroom door! Beers were always cold and the meals were a 10/10! Fortunate enough to score waves the whole trip with any wind direction and even got bank vaults to our selves twice! Will be back again next year!

Great location. Terrific owners. Friendly staff. Top notch food and quality waves out front and within walking distance. Recommend this place to everyone. Bungalow style accommodation with share rooms. Clean and basic. The place is top shelf from my experience.

Excellent service from Shannon and his team right from airport pick up to drop off. Even before the trip started (great dinner!) Shannon and Kylie were great hosts. The most consistent surf spot for the area, with shape and power, right out the front. Can get a bit crowded when other spots too small because this is the go to spot but when you are staying right on the break you can choose when to go in or out all day. Boat trips to other breaks were great too. Million dollar view from my bed; open one eye, check the waves, up for the dawn surf or roll back over.

The staff, the accommodation, the food, the waves absolute 10/10. Highly recommend this place to anyone had the best 10 nights of my life!!! Nothing was a drama there it was absolute paradise. If you planning a surf trip this is most definitely the place to go four pumping waves right at your doorsteep.

Absolutely unreal. Staff were 10/10, nothing was a hassle. Living/sleeping arrangements were perfect. Constant surf pumping out the front - location location location. Will be booking again next year... And probably the year after!!! Yeww
