Sumba

Sumba

Sumba is a beautiful island in eastern Indonesia, largely untouched by the outside world and an amazing destination for adventurous travellers. The island is much larger than nearby Bali and Lombok yet remains very much a mystery, full of history and alive with indigenous culture.  

Sumba, one of the Lesser Sunda Islands, is brimming with wildlife and natural beauty. There are savannahs where wild horses roam, low limestone hills growing maize and rice, secret swimming spots and inland waterfalls, and plenty of deserted white sand beaches. 

Throughout the countryside the hilltop villages or kampung, contain huge clan houses with tall, thatched roofs centered around megalithic graves. The villagers still respect indigenous spiritual forces with bloody sacrificial rites and produce some of the finest ikat (patterned textiles) in Indonesia. Experience the extraordinary culture and spectacular beauty of the island while staying at the best luxury hotels in Sumba.
