Need an exceptional getaway? You’ll love this. Located on the island of Sumba in Eastern Indonesia, Nihiwatu continues to add new resort experiences such as the overnight Uma Izzie Spa Safari, the Coconut Cove surf school and Nio Beach Bar and Infinity Pool.
Overnight Uma Izzie Spa Safari
Set in the nearby valley of Nihi Oka, couples can experience the unique Nihi Oka Spa Safari and enjoy an unlimited number of pre-selected treatments amidst uninterrupted views of the sea. It’s also next to abundant surrounding rice fields on the open air bales – what a picturesque sight! For exclusive privacy, guests can also book the Uma Izzie Spa Safari (Nihi Oka Bale No. 4, pictured), a Sumbanese inspired one-bedroom villa for an overnight stay during their all-inclusive spa retreat.
Coconut Cove Surf School
Coconut Cove is home to a surf school, built near the calmest seas and pristine white beaches. The smaller waves at Coconut Cove are ideal for beginners and families for surfing, swimming, snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, body boarding and wake boarding. All equipment will be provided by the resort and guests can reach Coconut Cove by Nihiwatu’s Safari jeep or by boat. Coconut Cove is also great for those wanting a day away to explore other and calmer bays at Rua, the name of the sleepy fishing village where it has planted its roots.
Nio Beach Bar & Infinity Pool
A welcome addition to the existing Nio Beach Club is the Nio Beach Bar and 20 metre infinity pool, perched on the ‘Edge of Wildness’. It offers stunning views of the Indian Ocean, Occy’s Left and the local village life during low tides. Lunch and snacks are served by the pool, allowing guests to fulfill their wish to stay poolside for the rest of their stay. For special occasions, the Nio Pool can also be transformed into a magical setting for romantic dinners at sunset.
