Where to stay…

Nihiwatu is an ultra-boutique 5* hotel with just 7 beach bungalows and 3 two-bedroom villas. Its huge private estate is an ideal place to explore and seek out your own little piece of adventure heaven. Whether you are in the jungle, a fertile paddy field or somewhere on the 2,500m of exclusive white sandy beach, the opportunities to lose yourself and have fun are endless.


Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: charter flights to Tambolaka airport on Sumba take 1.5h from Bali, followed by a scenic 1.5h drive to Nihiwatu. You will need at least one night in Bali for flight connections.
  • Weather: tropical, hot and humid, with daily short bursts of heavy rain in the wet-season, Nov-Feb.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

One comment in the guest book says it all: ‘I still can’t believe this place actually exists.’ It is a rare privilege to find a hotel as dedicated to its community as it is to delivering perfect service to its guests. Best of all, the communities of Sumba will welcome and revere you just because you are a Nihiwatu guest, so take a break from yoga, surfing, fishing and relaxing to spend some time with them.
