Nihi Sumba is one of the most special places you will ever stay. The accommodation is incredibly luxurious and comfortable, the stretch of beach its positioned on it out of this world beautiful, the staff are genuine, so friendly and could not do more for you. The food is varied and delicious, with fantastic healthy options too. Kaia, the F&B Manager is brilliant, so passionate. But what really makes this place stand out are the experiences (even as a non-surfer) - swimming in the sea with horses, releasing turtles into the wild, the most spoiling 'Spa Safari', learning about the Sumba Foundation and being able to visit a school, sunset beach rides, and of course incredible surfing, the list is never ending. Thank you to all for making our stay so unique and memorable.

Nihi Sumba resort is a special property that we will not forget for a long, long time, and hope to visit again in the future. Our Captain Simson, the GM Julien, Phillippa, and the entire staff as a whole were some of the most welcoming, accommodating, and pleasant hospitality groups we have ever had the pleasure of staying with. The property itself is beautiful, and no discredit to their photographers but the pictures do not do it justice. Excellent food, beautiful views, immaculately clean villas, 5 stars for sure. Highly recommend

My husband and I recently got back from our honeymoon at Nihi and it was the best decision we made! We started in Bali and hopped on a plane to Sumba Island, and it was definitely the best part of our trip. Whether you are going for your honeymoon, family vacation, anniversary or just because, you can't go wrong! The activities are thoughtfully curated for a top notch experience. We were so lucky to have Jessica help us create the perfect schedule for our stay. The food was outstanding and the wine selection was great. Kaya was extremely knowledgeable with food and beverage and was an excellent host. From the moment we arrived to when we departed, the General Manager, Julien, made us feel at home and like we were part of the Nihi family. The interaction between the staff and the guests is a truly unique experience that you can't find anywhere else. We can't wait to return!

We stayed at Nihi for 4 nights and we’ve never experienced such a complete and blissful holiday. The place is unique, the attention to detail is inspirational, the food amazing and all the trips organised simply unrivalled. The hotel is eco-friendly and totally immersed in nature. The villas are extraordinarily luxurious yet simple / non ostentatious and are all built in wood and sustainable/nature friendly materials. Finally, what made this extraordinary place even more unique, was the experiences they propose. From the spa safari on a private beach to the paddle on the river among the villages and the water buffalos, everything was perfect. Our kids had also a magical time between the turtle release to the sea every sunset, the morning swim on the Sumba wild horses and finally the chocolate making at the factory, The service was ultra caring and professional. The lovely managing couple Cara and Julien went above and beyond to make our trip special.There is no better place for a family vacation, without a doubt the most amazing place we have been to. Thank you so much for this amazing experience!

Bonjour Peggy,

thank you very much for your message. Our team was so glad to welcome you and your family. Your 2 daughters were the true stars of the resort, swimming with horses, going down the river stand up paddling or catching the biggest fish during your deep sea fishing trip!

We look forward to having you all back again soon! We hope your start in Barcelona has gone perfectly :)

All the best from Sumba

The expectations for our stay at Nihi were sky high, based on reviews. I was worried it may be over-hyped and that we may be up for a let down. If anything, the reviews do not do justice to this piece of paradise. It's everything as advertised, and then some. In fact, my wife and I were on our honeymoon and stayed at several resorts within the same general price range and Nihi was by far and away the best spot. There's no doubt in my mind I'll be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in Mandaka 2, which was absolutely beautiful and well located in the resort. It has three outdoor showers!
