Surf Resort Sumba, Sumba Surf Lodge, Nihiwatu- Waterways Travel

Nihiwatu is not a “surf resort”, it is a luxury high end boutique eco-resort designed for general travelers, honeymooners, divers, fishermen and surfers wanting an exotic getaway. But because Nihiwatu is close to one of the best reef breaks in Sumba, and has exclusive access to that break, Nihiwatu accommodates a maximum of nine surfers at a time, guaranteeing uncrowded access to perfect waves.

Nihiwatu prides itself on running a sustainable, eco-friendly resort that does more than pay lip service to supporting the local community. Nihiwatu is dedicated to staffing the resort with Sumba natives and in 2000 they started the Sumba Foundation to help ease the burdens of poverty that afflict many on the island.

A visit to Nihiwatu is the ultimate holiday for any surfer traveling in a group, with their significant others or their family.  The experience combines luxury accommodations, guaranteed uncrowded surf, gourmet meals, yoga & spa facilities in addition to unparalleled cultural tours, island excursions, diving and fishing.

Nihiwatu is at the other end of the spectrum from going feral, but the comforts and even luxuries of the resort don’t distance guests from the nature that surrounds.
