Nihiwatu – Sumba, Indonesia - Asia

Sumba Island is 400km West of Bali and the Nihiwatu Resort is found on the south west coast of the island and is one of our most exclusive hideaways.

In 2005, Nihiwatu won the award for the world's best hotel in the responsible travel category. Bulit up and developed from scratch by Calude and Petra Graves,  the 438 acres setting of Nihiwatu is in amongst the tropical rainforest and rice terraces.

The Nihiwatu resort is perfect for non surfing partners with local attractions that include; a stone age site, local villages, hidden waterfalls and an array of secluded beaches upon which to explore. For rejuvenation of body and mind, there is the Hill Top Spar and the opportunity to make full use of private yoga tuition under the traditionally built Sumbanese yoga shelter.

The totally unique 'Nihiwatu Experience' takes pride in providing the most memorable of dining experiences encouraging you to really take in and appreciate your natural surroundings.

The Nihiwatu Resort is the perfect honeymoon destination where an adventurous spirit is richly rewarded. Words do not do this place justice, we have tried our hardest with the pictures, however the only way to really understand is to go and see for yourself.
