This is not an escape from everyday life. It is the return to a life well lived. Where rugged luxury meets unregulated freedom. A place to connect with something larger than oneself. A haven for the adventurer, for the wanderer. The endlessly passionate and curious. Arrive with an open heart and leave changed forever. This is a vacation with a purpose. A destination with meaning. This is NIHI Sumba.

Located on the island of Sumba, an hour’s flight from Bali, the hotel combines luxurious amenities with the opportunity to experience the well-preserved local culture and traditions of the island.
The hotel blends in with the exotic landscape, lives in symbiosis with the surrounding nature and the local community. Part of the profit goes to a local foundation to support local handicrafts.
The Nihiwatu has 4 restaurants and bars serving delicious Indonesian and international dishes. All products come from ecological gardens, fresh fish are caught every day so that guests can be surprised by freshness and new flavors every day.
The Ombak restaurant, located next to the beach, offers breakfast and dinner a’la carte. During the week, grilled dishes are served here.
