Escape to Nihi Sumba
8 Nov 2019
Wow, wow, wow, are the only words that were coming out of our mouths on arrival to Nihi Sumba in Indonesia. A resort of impeccable opulence and undeniable taste, that takes you to the edge of wilderness, without losing the luxuries of life.
Dotted around coastline of the 270 hectare property are 27 private pool villas in one, two, three, four and five bedroom layouts. The villas are the ultimate escape in tropical seclusion, each tucked away among the plam trees, with exceptional views of the sea and countryside. Relax in your private pool, to the sound of crashing waves and the scent of frangipani filling the warm air; you are in total bliss with not a soul in sight.
Indulge in a day at the spa; loose the preconceptions of resort day spas and loose yourself on a Nihioka Spa Safari. With the choice of a half or full day experience you will return to the resort relaxed after hours of pampering. The morning starts with a 90minute walk through the surrounding grounds of the resort, over rice paddies and past local villages you will journey, before finding yourself down by the sea. Enjoy a seaside breakfast, prior to being whisked away to your private cliff top bamboo bale for a day of unlimited spa treatments.
After a day for pure indulgence Nihi has activities that will get your blood racing too; there is surf all around the resort, from the famous Occy’s Left sitting right out the front of the resort to a multitude of breaks dotted around the coast Nihi is a surfers paradise. Surfing isn’t your kryptonite? Do not worry, Nihi offers a long list of other activities to excite you whilst on vacation. How about a sunset horse ride along the 2.5kilometre private beach, or an exploration fueled trail ride through the rice paddies and villages. Head out to sea on a fishing adventure or meander up the river on a stand-up paddle board. Or let go of it all and indulge in a day of yoga and meditation; complete ultimate zen and return from your stay at Nihi revived. You can do all of this or absolutely nothing at Nihi Sumba, plan your day just as you please.
Spend the morning at the Sumba Foundation and learn about the efforts the foundation has undertaken to provide support to the local communities. Spend time in the clinic or at one of the 17 local schools, supporting the lunch drive provided daily by the foundation in a commitment to lessen the consequences of poverty. Discover the efforts in establishing access to clean water, creating educational programs, and minimising effects of Malaria.
