On the edge of wildness
Stretching across 560 acres of unspoiled natural land sits Nihiwatu, located on the remote Sumba Island, 400km west of Bali. Sumba is a magical island, a landscape filled with natural wonderment and geographical opulence.
This exclusive all-villa retreat offers just 21 villas, all exceptionally designed with private terraces, impressive living space and dramatic views across the Indian Ocean. Dine with the sand between your toes at Ombak, an exquisitely crafted open-air restaurant, enjoy afternoon tea at Menara or head seaside to Nio Beach Club for just caught fish from the grill. Positioned under the Pandanus trees is the beach spa and the Creekside yoga pavilion is the ideal spot to practice yoga or meditate.
There is a wealth of scheduled activities included in your stay: treks to nearby Weihola and Rice Island, mountain biking, yoga & meditation classes, stand-up paddle boarding and snorkelling around Nihiwatu. In addition to those, there is a range of optional signature experiences you can also enjoy including the ability to surf one of the world’s best left-hand break waves, world-class sport fishing, diving and horse riding. On Sunday evenings guests are also invited to experience ‘Movie Night Under the Stars’ at Nio Beach Club.
Nihiwatu, on the remote Sumba Island offers splendid isolation in the Indonesian Archipelago.
