Thanks for your help! It was great and Barton enthusiastic as usual! 

Scott (March 2017)

Well done Bruno and The Perfect Wave! Kandui Villas is beautiful, with an amazing pool, great accommodation, friendly staff and sensational food. Not to mention we scored pumping waves for 6 of the 8 days there.

Everything worked like clockwork, from check in, to being met at the airport to room bookings.

Highly recommend The Perfect Wave and will definitely use them again.

Ian (July 2016)
I approached Perfect Wave at less than a weeks notice looking for a trip to the Mentawai's. They found the perfect holiday for me, with the best waves I have ever experienced in a fantastic resort all based on their own experience of the region. Thank you
