Nihiwatu on Sumba, Indonesia| Wild, luxurious and unforgettable
Be embraced by pure luxury and privacy at Nihiwatu on the Indonesian island of Sumba. Praised as the world’s best hotel by Travel + Leisure in 2016, Nihiwatu is an inimitable blend of wilderness and luxury.
From its 2.6 kilometre stretch of white sand coastline to its remote, off-grid location, Nihiwatu promises decadence and absolute seclusion. This “lost world island” is relished by surfers, couples and families wanting to switch-off so they can reconnect - with each other.
Unwind, relax and nourish your soul with a spa safari that will take you on a scenic walk through rolling hills of rice paddies to a private clifftop bale. Two personal spa therapists are at your service for the whole day offering a full menu of spa treatments. Guests enjoy complimentary daily yoga atop the dedicated yoga pavilion that delivers 360° island views. Every guest is appointed their own Sumbanese butler so your every need is taken care of.
The resort is a meticulous blend of modern luxury inspired by Sumbanese culture. Traditional Sumbanese carvings and Ikat prints feature throughout the 28 villas. Coconut shell cupboards, jungle bathrooms, walls of textured clay and raw wooden columns sit under high thatched rooves with an infinity pool and expansive deck fronting each villa.
A world-class surf break fronts the resort, globally renowned among serious surfers.
Swells of up to four metres on this left-hand wave are exclusive – only 10 surfers are permitted each day.
For adventure lovers, first-class adrenaline experiences abound. Try wakeboarding behind a horse, mountain biking, off-shore fishing for marlin and wahoo, spearfishing, horse riding, snorkelling and paddle boarding.
Nihiwatu offers unexpected adventures too, like the birth of sea turtles at the resort’s hatchery or an encounter with a visiting whale shark. Numerous walking trails invite you to experience a gorgeous landscape of hidden waterfalls, rice fields, verdant jungle and the fascinating ancient Sumbanese culture.
