Your Childhood Tree House Just Got An Adult Upgrade
Each villa is built on stilts and features living room, bedroom, and outdoor spaces. Plunge pools can also be found at each tree house style abode.
The villas also boast tropical interior design that exudes tranquility.
More Views For Your Money
The view of Nihi Beach is one you’ll remember forever; but that’s not all you’ll feast your eyes on – the resort offers views from every possible space you can think of. It’s MAGNIFICENT!
Go To Infinity and Beyond
An infinity pool can be found between two of the villas, and another attached to the third (private) villa.
Give Back While You Unwind
Nihiwatu’s founder, Claude Graves and his colleague Sean Downs created the Sumba Foundation in 2001, to provide: wells, medical clinics, food for children and much more. The good news? A portion of Nihiwatu Resort’s profits go directly to this foundation!
Needless to say, the Nihiwatu Resort is “a destination of geographic opulence”, as Nihiwatu Managing Partner, James McBride gushed. This hotel truly shatters the common idea of ‘paradise’ and offers a unique, unparalleled experience.
