Nihi Sumba

This is not an escape from everyday life. It is the return to a life well lived. Where rugged luxury meets unregulated freedom. A place to connect with something larger than oneself. A haven for the adventurer, for the wanderer. The endlessly passionate and curious. Arrive with an open heart and leave changed forever. This is vacation with a purpose. A destination with meaning. This is Nihi Sumba.

Experiences

Surfing

Nihi Sumba Island is host to one of the world’s most coveted private waves. Known as “God’s Left,” or often “Occy’s Left” (after Australian surfer Mark Occhilupo), the wave is popular for its character. Even for the most experienced surfer it presents a challenge because it is so sensitive to different conditions: tides, size, strength, and direction.

Horseback Riding

Nihi’s state of the art equestrian facility, Sandalwood Stables, offers the perfect vacation for horse lovers. The resident horse whisperer, Carolyn Sharpe, has handpicked an exceptional team of local sport horses ready to carry guests off into the sunset and beyond. Depending on the time of year, guests might be lucky enough to see one of the foals in training!

Fishing

Deep sea fishing off of the coast of Nihi produces some impressive catches. Nihi's offshore eco-systems provide an active deep sea fishing excursion for big game enthusiasts. The expert boatmen and local fishermen will locate the most active spots, and assist with prep and line as needed. Set out early in the morning and your catch will be ready for lunch!

Spa Safari

Tailored to indulge each one of your senses, the NihiOka spa safari is a one of a kind experience not to be missed. Ultimately the day is centered around you: your wants and your needs at whatever pace truly allows you to unwind.

Yoga

Yoga is an integral part of the Nihi Sumba Island experience and the design of our yoga pavilion reflects just that: a breathtaking platform set atop a cliff side ridge offers sweeping views of Nihiwatu Beach on the Indian Ocean.

Kitesurfing

From beginner to advanced levels, depending on the wind condition and direction you can launch from our resort-front beach and kitesurf along the 2.5km coastline. Beginners will learn with training kites, and there are beautiful, calm, deserted beaches a short drive away where the conditions are ideal.

Paddle-boarding

At Nihi, we love paddle boarding for its refreshing way to explore the island: on the lake, down the river, or in the ocean. On our most popular excursion, paddle board with water buffalo and float past everyday village life along the banks of the Wanukaka River.

DINING

OMBAK

The hub of social activity is the main sandy-floored Ombak (meaning wave front) restaurant and bar lounge. Ombak, an exquisitely crafted open-air restaurant, serves a la carte breakfast and dinner daily with a relaxed convivial atmosphere. During the week Nihi create special dining experiences including spectacular BBQs. The large outside deck, cantilevered over the ocean, offers relaxed lounge seating and a spectacular private dining experience, The Nest, perched on the crest of the ocean, perfect for a romantic dinner or an intimate group meal.

Menu

NIO BEACH CLUB & POOL

Just bare footsteps from the sea, the Nio Beach Club offers open-aired pavilions and the Kapten’s Goa serving the highest quality of fresh ingredients for lunch: whether it is a fish just caught from sea, delicious vegetables and legumes from the resort's three thriving organic gardens, items from the grill, daily rotisserie or freshly made pizzas from wood fired clay oven, the Chef and his brigade will satiate your appetite with sumptuously healthy dishes. Lunch or snacks are served by the pool, and for special occasions, Nihi Sumba creates magical settings for romantic dinners.

Menu

KABOKU

The latest addition to Nihi's dining experiences is Kaboku, beachfront sushi bar. Visit Kaboku for an intimate meal of fresh caught seafood, Omakase style. Watch the resort's sushi chefs prepare an assortment of catch-of-the-day, against a backdrop of brilliant sunsets and a roaring beach fire. Limited to six people per seating, the restaurant is open five nights a week from 6pm until 10pm, with advance reservations. The seven-course menu of local ingredients also includes avocado tofu, shrimp dumplings, Teriyaki dishes, miso soup, desserts, and more.
