Among travellers "in the know" who seek excitement with absolute privacy, NIHI Sumba's reputation is unrivalled — for starters, world class fishing, surfing and diving are sensational and right outside your door, and not far away are unforgettable activities that are absolutely beyond compare.
The resort is located on Sumba island and works closely with the Sumba Foundation, a non-profit organisation battling the poverty on the Island. NIHI Sumba runs weekly excursions to nearby schools and villages, where you can see first-hand the incredible work the charity is doing within the community and interact with the local people.
NIHI Sumba offers 11 distinct room categories ranging from the rustic chic wave front villas, spiritual mountainside residences and an expansive tree-house, which is nestled within the lush jungle canopy. The majority of rooms have their own private pool and sweeping views out to the Indian ocean.
