The island of 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. A cluster of 27 stunning villas and treehouses all in varied shapes and sizes, in treetops or on the water’s edge, all boasting views of the ocean with large four poster beds, private infinity pools, private terraces, large en-suite bathrooms and private butlers on hand. The décor is authentic and simple with grand marble floors, big windows and large open lounges. The buildings reflect the local Sumbanese architecture, with traditional grass-thatched Menara roofs, teak wood and local artworks. We would recommend staying in the Mamole Treehouse, built around a large trunk of a tree with three separate breathtakingly beautiful villas, designed for those wanting to be in peace with nature. This treehouse also has a private terrace with panoramic views of the ocean, perfect for enjoying a sundowner whilst watching evening surfers.
The dining at Nihi Sumba is phenomenal, with fresh food being sourced locally from the onsite organic kitchen gardens and chicken farm. Fisherman go out daily to collect seafood and its then cooked delicately over an open fire with multitude of flavours and ingredients for your senses to enjoy. The main restaurant Ombak is an open-air restaurant at the heart of Nihi Sumba and serves an a la carte breakfast and evening meal, with a relaxed and congenial ambience. Head down to the Nio Beach Club for a delicious lunch and cocktails just a stone throw away from the ocean or if you fancy exquisite sushi head to Kabuko also on the beachfront.
At Nihi Sumba, you’ll never be short of activities with options of sunset horse riding along the beach, to morning yoga in the pavilion, or a three-mile trek through the jungle seeking out the wildlife. To truly relax, head down to the Boathouse spa where you’ll find a full menu of treatments options to immerse yourself into a state of serenity.

Why we love it
We would recommend a sunset horseback ride along the beach, where you’ll end up cooling off with the horses in the sea, whilst watching them splash about. A truly mesmerizing experience.
