Cap Karoso
Sumba Island

Cap Karoso in Kodi is perched between turquoise lagoons and traditional villages on one side and the shores of a coral reef on the other. With 47 rooms and 20 villas, this pioneering place brings age-old craft and contemporary art and design to create a stay that is unlike anywhere in Indonesia. Its three restaurants, that are only animated by guest chefs, provide an unforgettable dining experience. This is one of the best beach resorts where you can soak in nature and explore the culture of the Indonesian island of Sumba.

You can be a part of the thriving community of artists, musicians, chefs, agricultural experts and creators, who are present for short residence at this sanctuary or simply indulge in a private tropical leisure. In harmony with nature, each suite and villa are dotted with chic furniture, antiques and art inspired by the local culture. All the spaces, designed to bring the lush, soothing outdoors inside are a minute’s walk from the beach. Led by their Executive Chef, the Beach Club at Cap Karoso provides delectable cuisine made from the products from their own farm. If you prefer a more intimate space, then Julang is the dining area for you, where a maximum of 20 guests per dinner can sit around the chef’s table. We highly recommend their yoga and Malala spa sessions which is set in a traditional Sumbanese house with spa rituals inspired from local shamanic techniques of healing and rejuvenating.

With the assistance of local communities, you get the unique chance of experiencing the island’s ancient culture and witness traditional fishing, ikat weaving, and Sumbanese sandalwood horse riding. You can hike or ride a bike to explore forested landscapes, savanna, dry plains that are all home to a diverse flora and fauna. Cap Karoso offers an ideal opportunity to swim as well as snorkel in the calm waters of Karoso Lagoon and the Weekuri saltwater lake.

Sumba Island is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Summer Holiday Destinations in Asia.

Client Testimonials

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
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
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning 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
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10

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
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
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!

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!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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!
