Indonesia, Sumba Island
Info : Nihiwatu
“On the Edge of Wildness” – Nihiwatu is an intimate island retreat, eco-friendly, sustainable hotel and barefoot luxury beach getaway all in one.
This is one of the most secluded spots in all of Indonesia – located on a pristine sweeping stretch of brilliant white beach, with some of the clearest blue water as we’ve ever seen. The resort itself is spread across 567 acres of land, and whilst most of this is left untouched to focus on preserving a natural and unspoiled environment, there is still plenty of space amidst the accommodation, dining pavilions, restaurant, Boathouse and jungle spa which helps to maintain an air of exclusivity and privacy.
Lush gardens surround the whole resort and there is stunning ocean-front dining on the sand. There are lovely communal swimming pools, but the sublime luxury villas have their own private infinity pools which are stunning. All the earthen-style, thatched roof villas are open-style, with stunning ocean views and have tasteful, comfortable furnishings. There are also Tree House villas available, with three bedrooms they're brilliant for families. The décor has eco/natural feel, and is very stylish and romantic.
One of Nihiwatu’s most unique and exciting features is the impressive list of activities and excursions that you can get involved in. From world-class surfing, snorkelling and diving, waterfall yoga, hiking through breath-taking scenery and plenty of cultural interaction with the local Sumbanese, with the cooperation of whom the resort was founded. One of our favourite highlights is to watch the local horse racing on the beach – a flurry of colour and excitement!
This is a truly unique place, where luxury, community and relaxation all come together in one fantastic resort.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.

Six great and amazingly different hotels - we would happily recommend any of them. We had three excellent guides as well. And we lost track of the number of "Wow" moments. In addition to the obvious, including Paramban, Borobodur and Bromo, we would add our tour of the markets + rickshaw ride in Malang, and having coffee with Mr Rai at the Agung Rai Gallery in Bali. Our guide in Bali, Otok (?) was excellent at explaining local culture, and we left an offering at his family shrine.
