Regarded as one of the finest resorts in the world, Nihi Sumba Island, formerly known as Nihiwatu, has a blissfully remote location on West Sumba and the feel of paradise found.

Set within the diverse natural setting of 438 acres of tropical forest, rice terraces and grasslands on a private stratch of beautiful beach, Nihi Sumba Island provides utter scenic seclusion.

All rooms are tucked amongst the trees, with huge windows and private terraces or balconies boasting expansive sea views. With 32 villas, all made from reclaimed wood by local craftsmen and furnished with unique regional artifacts, the accommodation here is a true Indonesian retreat.

Meanwhile the restaurant is a fusion between eastern and western cuisine with an extremely accommodating team and chef. Though dining tends to be a communal affair with couples, families and friends, the staff will happily arrange private dining in your room or one of many private romantic locations among the grounds. Flexibility is the key word at here.

During the days guests can try their hand at the excellent surfing along the beach and take in the Sumbanese countryside and culture by horseback. Those looking for a more relaxing pursuit can indulge in the Jungle Spa with a massage or yoga class. There are also fishing trips, stand-up paddle boarding and diving to be enjoyed, plus destination dining and a sea turtle hatchery.


Nihi Sumba Island is a Jacada Signature Property for excellence in personalised service and luxury. Jacada guests making new reservations here for five nights or more will receive a complimentary private yoga lesson and a bottle of wine in the villa on arrival.
