Sumba is a beautiful island for green hotels and resorts that is an hour’s flight from Bali. With private and traditional villas spreading along a wildly beautiful beach, Nihiwatu becomes one of the best resorts in the world that provides every luxury tourists want in the local cultural atmosphere.
Located on 438 acres of tropical forest and rice terraces, Nihiwatu is surrounded by some of the world’s most pristine beaches. The resort is strongly committed to conserving its native surrounds and improving the quality of life of the Sumbanese people. Nihiwatu opened for the first time during the low season in 2016 for anyone who wants to witness villagers in headscarves and their best ikat cloth hurling blunted spears at each other from horses adorned with pom poms.
