WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

  • Location: The small and exclusive island of Sumba was once a three days’ journey from Bali, and is now only a 50-minute flight.
  • History: First mentioned in the history books in the 16th Century, Sumba was described as breathtaking, with untouched white beaches and lush, fertile valleys.
  • Service: Nihi Sumba’s guests often reflect on the warm family-like hospitality of the resort staff, propounding their stay as the best time of their lives.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Nihi Sumba (formerly Nihiwatu), a small and exclusive island hideaway in eastern Indonesia, sits on 175 hectares of tropical forest, rice terraces and grasslands, and features 1.6 miles of headland-protected beachfront. Due to its location, Nihi Sumba offers adventure sports such as world class fishing, surfing and diving, yet is an idyllic getaway for couples and anyone in need of rest and relaxation in pristine environs. Surrounding Nihi Sumba are Stone Age sites and traditional villages that have remained unchanged for centuries; this unique tribal culture with its ancient animist rituals is truly incredible. Nihi Sumba has seven luxury bungalows and three two-bedroom villas, offering complete solitude on remote Sumba Island. The thatched-roof bungalows and villas, hand-built by Indonesian craftsman using local materials, have balcony vistas stretching the full length of the beach to the headlands beyond. All are superbly outfitted in contemporary Indonesian style with large glass walls and doors to maximize the views. A swimming pool, cliff-top bar and living and dining room are close by the villas, and on the beach below is Nihi Sumba's jungle spa under a grove of Pandanus trees. Dining menus change daily and feature Asian and Western fare, and there is an extensive wine list with Old and New World bottles to suit any palate. The largest Sumbanese structure on the island is where private and group yoga, pilates and meditation instruction are available. Nihi Sumba is a 50-minute flight from Bali.
