Tucked away on one of Indonesia’s most unexplored islands, Nihiwatu hotel is a luxury resort with a conscience. Almost entirely preserved from urban development, Sumba’s spectacular landscape is the setting for truly romantic escapes. Stretching across 560 acres of unspoiled natural land including a two and half-kilometer private beach, this spectacular all-villa resort offers secluded privacy and the ultimate exclusivity.
The 21 villas of exceptional design are built on private terraces with large verandahs that sift through the trees with an impressive use of living space, imbued by natural materials to make the most of the dramatic views.
Guest facilities include the iconic Boathouse, Ombak restaurant, Nio Beach Club, Menara Bale, private dining pavilions and the Beach Spa.
Dramatically positioned with sweeping views of the sea, surf and spectacular sunsets, the Boathouse is an iconic destination and bar at the heart of the Nihiwatu experience.
By day, it acts as an outpost to adventure whilst the nightly ritual of lighting the fire on the beach ceaselessly brings a quiet symphony to the landscape; creation, life and inspiration are topics of daily parlance.
Guests can also enjoy a very special “Spa Safari” experience journeying to nearby secluded Nihi Oka valley where resort’s therapists can offer full body or foot massages in the Bamboo Pavilion with views extending over the cascading rice paddy fields and our three private beach coves.
There’s a lot of amenities for everyone: surf the world-famous breaks, explore the bush on horseback, work on community projects or simply while the days away by your dreamy private pool.
