Hotel Experiences

Horse lovers will adore Nihi Sumba Island's state-of-the-art equestrian centre at Sandalwood Stables. Experienced local guides and the resident horse whisperer, Carolyne Sharpe, provide exceptional sport horses that are available for a variety of activities, including trail rides on the beach at sunset, or the 'beach-to-bush' excursion through local villages and incredible coastline views and stunning ocean vistas, before taking the opportunity to rest and sip on freshly cut coconut, continuing down to the beach to play in the waves. With many more horse-riding excursions available, Nihi Sumba Island is the perfect exotic spot forhorse-lovers.

The Beach

Famous for its palm trees and surf, this pristine island has been the secret haunt for many a savvy surfer, due to its extensive coastline, and is the home of one of the world's most coveted waves, 'God's Left' (or 'Occy's Left', named after the Australian surfer, Mark Occhilupo), which will provide the most experienced surfer a challenge. Catch the wave right and you will experience a thrilling 200- to 300-metre-long ride through sections of ripple walls and heaving barrels. Even novice and first-timers can jump on Occy's Left after a lesson, or surf nearby calmer waters. Snorkelling and sustainable spear fishing also allow guests to view the reef, colourful coral and marine life.

Culture & History

Immerse yourself in Sumba Island's fascinating and magnificently preserved ancient culture during your stay at Nihi Sumba Island. Visit the local villages and markets and witness the vibrant culture as you gaze upon local arts and crafts or monumental megalithic burial sites and the beautiful, world-famous, Ikat weavings. Traditionally performed by women, Ikat-weaving throughout Sumba has religious, social and traditional significance and during the making process it is strictly taboo for men to see or be near the dye bath. Each region in Sumba has its own distinctive design, all reflecting the life, culture and history of this astonishing island.
