Well if it is the water you are worried about then teak is your best bet with a wax/oil mix finish it will have very high water resistance just due to the finish, combine that with Teak’s natural high oil content and you should be fine.

In the case of mechanical abuse Teak is pretty durable as well, but also it is expensive. I personally prefer wood, but I contemplated a concrete top as well – of course concrete can chip just as well and even better in edges. So it will be a trade off either way, you just have to think about what you are willing to trade.
