On stunning Sumba—one of Indonesia’s most effortlessly beautiful islands—NIHI Sumba’s 27 villas along with its excellent Boathouse Spa are secreted on a remote stretch of coast that ensures a high degree of privacy.

The style is airy and modern teak wood buildings with grass-thatched roofs. Its surfer chic vibe recalls the resort’s origins as a shack created to serve the renowned surf break, Occy’s Left. 

The spacious, marble-floored villas are available in an array of sizes—with some in treetops—come with ocean views, oceanic four posters, and private terraces and infinity pools. A butler is assigned exclusively to your villa to cater to your whims and organize any of the resort’s long list of superb experiences for your pleasure.


There’s so much to do, from cocoa-making courses at the chocolate factory, taking a whole day ‘spa safari’, to surfing a glassy barrel at world-famous Occy’s Left.

The food at this twice-voted ‘World’s Best Hotel’ meets the standards set by that lofty accolade. Fishermen haul in the bounty of the waves daily, organic kitchen gardens supply flavorsome ingredients, and there’s even a chicken farm.

Choose between open-air Ombak with its Indonesian flavors and creamy prawn laksas, Nio Beach Club for zingy tacos by the waves, and Kaboku’s superb sushi at the shoreline.
