What it feels like to be there...

Sumba is a remote Indonesian island with a strong tribal culture. Its people are inspired by the beautiful, fish-stocked sea and lush jungle – and they wait to welcome you into their fold. Learn their ways and live out an adventure story from the comfort of a luxury villa set on over 2km of private beach in a 400-acre tropical estate. 

What to do there…

Sumba is packed with activities and perfect for 7 to 10 days:
  • Major: Fishing, Scuba-diving, Surfing, Sailing, Cultural-visits, Horse-riding, Cycling, Jungle-treks, Nature-walks, Bird-watching, Art-classes, Spa/Massage, Community-projects.
  • Other: Cooking-classes, Yoga, Meditation, Swimming.

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.

What it feels like to be there...

When you think of South East Asia you imagine a world of sizzling street foods, meditating monks, ornate carvings lacquered in gold, limestone cliffs and islands rising out of turquoise seas. And it is this last image that makes the region a paradise for intrepid adventurers. Try some of the world’s best locations for rock-climbing, scuba-diving, caving or jungle treks, or get massaged into submission. 

Some practical information worth knowing…

The main travel hubs are Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, and from these the region is well served by national and cheap-flight carriers. Getting around quickly and comfortably is straightforward. South East Asia is primarily tropical, so it is hot and humid all year round. It is affected by two annual monsoons (Indian Ocean side and Pacific side), but the rain is usually confined to short downpours in the late afternoon, so don’t be put off. European languages are understood in tourist areas, especially English. Getting money from cash machines is easy with any major card provider, especially in airports, hotels, banks and mini-markets.
