Highlights

INDULGE

The resort itself is set on a deserted stretch of private, gold-sand beach backed by raw, tropical jungle. It might be a far-flung destination to reach (an hour’s flight from Bali and a 90-minute car ride) but this remote setting on the ‘edge of wildness’ (so says the resort’s tagline) is definitely worth the travel.

RELAX

Perched above the crashing waves of the Indian Ocean, our award-winning Nihioka Spa Safari is an experience not to be missed.  Our Yoga Pavilion offers breathtaking 360-degree views atop the ridge of the resort, with an open-air platform for private or group lessons. Throughout the resort, you will find many places that support meditation and a connection to oneself.

Let us help you build your dream itinerary. Whether that includes surf lessons at coconut cove alongside world class instructors or hikes into local villages, we are here to create bespoke experiences that cater to your passions and interests.

DRINK & DINE AT THE RESORT

Dining punctuates the day. It brings on the morning and closes out the night. It gives meaning to each hour. As such we’ve taken great care designing the dining experience for our guests.

Our menus are crafted to recall local flavors and far flung tastes, using fresh produce from our on site organic garden. Local fish is caught and brought up daily from our shores to be prepared in a new way every night. Toast is always cooked over an open fire, never in a toaster.

We invite you to experience the details that make NIHI Sumba Island a singular culinary experience.

THE RESORT

Tropical luxe meets surfer’s retreat. The resort was born of a simple shack that surf enthusiast Claude and his wife Petra Graves set up after discovering legendary wave Occy’s Left here in the late Eighties. It was bought up by Chris Burch and James McBride who developed it into a series of private villas. Buildings reflect the local Sumbanese culture and architecture, with traditional grass-thatched menara roofs (sombrero-shaped), teak wood and local artworks. Big windows and open lounges bring the outside in.

It’s all about the relaxed, beach-chic mentality here, with an emphasis on sustainability, wellness and really soaking in your surroundings.

Location

Map, how to get there: Almost three times the size of Bali, Sumba is a jewel in Indonesia’s necklace of islands. The resort itself is set on a deserted stretch of private, gold-sand beach backed by raw, tropical jungle. It might be a far-flung destination to reach (an hour’s flight from Bali and a 90-minute car ride) but this remote setting on the ‘edge of wildness’ (so says the resort’s tagline) is definitely worth the travel. There are villages nearby; some you can walk to, others you might need to ask your personal butler to arrange a car or horse ride for. Aside from that, it’s a blissful bolthole.

Address:  Hoba Wawi, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.
