“Nihi is truly a unique and spell-binding destination… a rare and fascinating tale that began when Sumba’s ancestors (the ‘Marapu’) landed on its secluded beach centuries ago… The perfect place to escape the world and experience a transformational travel journey surrounded by understated luxury.”

Conservation projects are established to provide long term solutions & guests can take part with many of these studies. Projects include reintroduction of natural vegetation; studying the Aldabra Giant Tortoise and Sea Turtles, monitoring sea birds and coral reefs; subsistence fishing and sustainable fisheries; following movement of marine mammals, sharks and rays and carrying out beach clean ups.
