cap karoso


Set on Sumba island, located off the axis of the Indonesian archipelago, Cap Karoso is surrounded by natural saltwater lakes and teal lagoons, with traditional villages and fishing harbors close by. The island’s wild beauty and local Marapu culture captivated the founders, embodying everything that the adventurous traveler could dream of (think ancestral rituals, breathtaking landscapes, and wildlife roaming freely), and they wanted to share this with their guests.

There are a total of 47 rooms and 20 villas, each one celebrating Sumbanese culture and tropical leisure. Indoor-outdoor living is naturally a theme here, and the interiors are dominated by hand-carved wood panels, bespoke ceramics, and local artifacts. From studios to duplex villas, there is something to suit every traveler here. But, for families or groups, opt for the 3-bed villa which boasts private beach access, a large private garden, beach cabana, and swimming pool.


Reinventing the beachfront resort experience, Cap Karoso offers the best of both worlds: serenity mixed with adventure. During the day, Cap Karoso offers a true immersion into island life: visit local villages and discover the incredible landscape. Come evening, the atmosphere becomes lively and sophisticated with leading mixologists and DJs providing excellent entertainment.

Community is also important here, and the main restaurant, Julang, is a unique mix between a fine dining eatery and a community table. Here, acclaimed chefs from all over the world are invited to bring their individual style and creativity, tasked with interpreting Sumbanese produce. And most of this produce comes from the resort’s sprawling biological farm which not only produces fresh, diverse and traceable ingredients for the menus but it also teaches local farmers methods of sustainable cultivation.
