Nihi Sumba Island... Indonesia's Most Romantic Island Hideaway

9 days from £5,260 per person

Just one hour's flight from Bali, Nihi Sumba Island, a small and exclusive island hideaway in remote eastern Indonesia, is one of the most extraordinary resorts in an archipelago of the extraordinary. This is the ultimate in privacy, exclusivity, romance, and views of one of the most stunning locations on earth. Among travellers "in the know" who seek excitement with absolute privacy, Nihi Sumba Island's reputation is unrivalled - for starters, world class fishing, surfing and diving are sensational and right outside your door, and not far away are unforgettable activities that are absolutely beyond compare.

Spend your days meditating on the beauty that surrounds you, from the lush jungle on one side to the exclusive beach and the Indian Ocean stretching out as far as the eye can see on the other. The property encompasses 175 hectares of tropical forest, rice terraces and grasslands, while its stunning two and half kilometres of beachfront are protected by headlands that ensure total exclusivity for guests. With an idyllic setting that is pristine, romantic and endlessly peaceful Nihi Sumba Island is the perfect tropical retreat for honeymooners and couples.

As the rates are on Full Board, this is a great one-stop destination and to incorporate into a longer Indonesian journey. This tour is purely a suggested itinerary; it can be booked as it is or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own tailor-made holiday around IndonesiaIf you'd like to see similar trips, take a look at our collection of Honeymoons, as well as our favourite Beach, Scuba Diving and Fly & Flop itineraries.

Client Testimonials

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
