The main restaurant, Julang, is a unique mix between a fine dining eatery and a community table. Here, acclaimed chefs from all over the world are invited to bring their individual style and creativity, tasked with interpreting Sumbanese produce. At Explorer’s, the atmosphere is more casual with family-inspired cuisine designed for sharing, centred on local produce.
At the spa, indulge your senses with one of the relaxing and invigorating treatments inspired by local beauty rituals and the best of Indonesian massage. Located at the heart of the hotel, housed in a building with a peaked roof akin to the village’s uma mbatangu dwellings, treatments are rooted in shamanic healing rituals, with visiting practitioners offering meditation, nutrition, and life-coaching sessions.
There are two pools, one with Flores Sea views and a serene feel and another at the beach club which is more suited to families. For something more private, all villas come with a private infinity pool whilst the lagoon’s clear waters are equally as enticing.
Other facilities include artist ateliers, a creative Kid’s Club, an open-air cinema, and a gym. Through working with local communities, guests are offered the opportunity to experience life on the island, including traditional fishing, ikat weaving, and Sumbanese sandalwood horse riding.
