Each bungalow is setup to accommodate 2 (unless already organized) people, for a total of 8 guests on the island at any one time. All have private bathrooms with running hot water.

The funky interior design incorporates hand built custom furniture and antique lighting and fixtures left over from Dutch fishing vessels. Each bungalow also has fans to help stay cool.

Using local Mentawai builders, under the guidance of John E Ocean, Togat Nusa Retreat maximizes its local surroundings and functions as a partial eco- resort, yet still delivers a very high standard of accommodations and personal space.

    "Ainsle and John have created the perfect place to holiday. Beautifully designed from found wood, the cabins and main area are stunning as well as comfortable and welcoming. The food is excellent and the staff are all very friendly helpful and welcoming. I highly recommend this spot and I will certainly be back."

  • Review by Raewyn R from Auckland Region, New Zealand

    "My first visit was in June this year. Togat Nusa is a very special spot, nature at its best. I am not a surfer, but did try paddle boarding. While we were staying there, the waves were really good so all the surfers were very happy, heading out to catch waves 3 times a day. Our bungalow was spacious, two large beds plus a sitting area, with our own ensuite. Each of the bungalows has its own style and character, John's skills are evident everywhere you look.I loved the food, best on our whole six week trip which included Europe and Britain. Lots of variety and not highly spiced, which I prefer, but you can add as much heat as you want, so suits everyone. The friendly staff help to make our stay great.Our other family members were very envious of our visit to Togat Nusa, so we will definitely organise a group trip in the next year or so. Well done John & Ainsley!"

    "A magical place that offers so much love and happiness. John, Ainsley and the rest of the Togat Nusa crew welcomed me into their home with such loving hearts and open arms. I couldn't recommend a more magical place to surf, relax and play. I look forward to my return always to this beautiful, peaceful paradise they are lucky to call home!"

    "I have been lucky enough to visit "Paradise Island" three times. Words are not enough to explain the feeling you get when your toes first touch the golden sand at Togat Nusa Retreat. This followed by Ainsley's incredible service & hospitality, the food (so much food!) and the privacy of bungalows nestled around the island is well worth the journey. The woodwork and building of the bungalows, resturant etc are all done by John himself. This thought and creativity are unequable to any other surf destination in the Mentawais. Then there is the surf. The SURF! Togat Nusa is situated on front of a world class break. Not to mention access to many other breaks just a short boat ride away. John and Ainsley are always willing to advise where and when to surf according to swell direction, winds and so on. I can't wait to go back! Thanks John & Ainz for sharing your paradise."

    "As a surfing couple this amazing place was perfect for us. We were looking for a peaceful getaway with great waves and yoga and found that and so much more.Its all here; world class waves and always a boat at the ready to get you to them, yoga, snorkeling, delicious food and lovely staff and generally a very welcoming no pressure, relaxing fun vibe.Once settled in the soul of the place starts to reveal itself in the handcrafted uniqueness of the the lovely bungalows and the bar/restaurant/ hangout area. Everything has been painstaking crafted by the hands of John and Ainsley. The organic beauty of all they have built reflects the love and deep respect these two have for their home and the ocean that surrounds it. They are the heart and soul of the resort and lovely hosts.This is a very special place and you can't help but fall under Togat's spell and all its many charms."

  • Review by Willo from Sydney, Australia

    "Togat Nusa ticked every single box required to have the perfect surf trip & then some. Being a long suffering, non-surfing wife of a keen surfer often has us both compromising our idea of an ideal holiday but this land based retreat had us both smiling. What we liked: consistent surf break "Scarecrows" right out front; short boat trip to other pleasing waves nearby; daily yoga to stretch out tired bodies; it's all inclusive-no extra costs (except alcohol); small guest numbers-8 max; great food & heaps of it; comfortable, private & impressive bungalows; and wonderful staff who are only too happy to help. Ainsley & John, our wonderful hosts, have built a beautiful getaway on a tropical, palm covered, 12 hectare island in the middle of the Mentawai Islands - it felt like being on another planet. Definitely no need for a hair dryer out here."

    "The snorkeling around Togat Nusa is beautiful, on one trip I saw a school of 6 spotted eagle rays! Afterwards I got to lounge on my own white sand beach and watch the sunset. Then it was time for a dinner of gormet island cuisine at the beachside restaurant. Thank you Togat Nusa for an amazing time!"

    "Paradise found!! I ventured to TNR last year not really knowing what to expect, and what I found is my idea of paradise. A remote tropical island, fringed with the most perfectly clear water I've ever seen - which happens to pop up all around the island as the most perfect surf. With way more staff than guests, the hospitality, the service, the food - it was all outstanding and made us feel like we were at home - albeit, the home you would dream about!! Where the hardest decision you need to make is surf, sleep, play or eat.... We scored perfect waves, met new friends, and most of all found paradise... See you guys next season...."
