Nihi Sumba Island, Indonesia

Voted the best hotel in the world (two years running!) by Travel + Leisure magazine, this is a resort that needs no introduction. Nihi Sumba is a resort like no other. With personalised itineraries created specifically to cater to your every desire, this luxurious island getaway offers everything from sports to spa treatments, wellness programmes to treks to stunning locations like the nearby NihiOka valley. 

For those who want to venture further afield you can visit nearby valleys and waterfalls, charter boats to explore the local beaches and jungles, or take a trip to Waikabubak where you can discover local markets and other attractions.

Back at the resort, you’ll never run out of things to do, whether that’s horseback riding on the beach, paddle boarding, yoga, surfing, fishing or even booking yourself into the resort’s very own chocolate factory. As you’d expect for a resort located right on the beach, water is a big focus here and you can enjoy both a swim in the ocean or a more relaxed dip in one of the resort’s numerous sparkling infinity pools.
