Top 10s logo 

Nihi Sumba Island is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Beach Hotels and Top 10 Romantic Retreats.

Nihi Sumba Island is 438 acres of tropical forest, rice terraces and grasslands wrapped around the stunning two and half kilometer long Nihiwatu beach.

This world-class beach is protected on both ends by cliffs and headlands ensuring total exclusivity and understated luxury. Tucked amongst the trees of this remote island are 32 villas, including one, two and three-bedroom villas offering you complete solitude in air-conditioned comfort with everything one needs in an idyllic tropical setting. The thatched roofed bungalows and villas have balcony panoramas stretching the full length of the beach, the sea and the headlands beyond.

Nearby you will find a living and dining room and adjacent is the cliff-top bar overlooking the sea. On the beach below is the jungle spa and the water sports activity hut is close by. Overlooking the full length of Nihiwatu beach is a swimming pool area where you can lose yourself to the views.

There are a multitude of wonderful experiences to enjoy at Nihi Sumba Island. From surfing one of the worlds best left-hand break waves to star-lit dining – there is a personalised approach to each guest, so your stay is crafted to be shaped by pleasure and not design.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.

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
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 thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- 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!
- Leslie Siben, 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
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
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
