Alamayah Boutique Retreat

Tucked away in the eastern part of Indonesia’s archipelago, Sumba is a culturally fascinating island where powder-white beaches give way to jungles and hilltop villages. Travelers looking to catch a glimpse of native traditions that have been in practice for centuries will find all they seek in the beachside village of Kerewe, where the Alamayah hotel strikes a balance between luxurious, heartfelt hospitality and connectedness with the landscape and local culture. The Alamayah offers five-star accommodations along with an Ayurvedic spa, a fitness center, entertainment rooms, private gardens, and a plant-based restaurant. The surrounding area on Sumba is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts and those wishing to learn about the local Marapu people. Guests are invited to participate in experiences like spa therapy, yoga, surfing, hiking, mountain biking, and exploring the local community. Inside the hotel, spaces consist of private ocean- and jungle-view suites that come with oversized bathrooms and outdoor terraces. Suites feature a full range of five-star amenities, such as king-size beds dressed in pure linen, freestanding terrazzo bathtubs, and a coffee and Ayurvedic tea station. Shared spaces at Alamayah include an open-air rooftop yoga pavilion, a vast swimming pool with a swim-up bar, billiards room, as well as a Turkish hammam and spa, among others.
