The Sumba Island Resort Nihiwatu is driven by a strong passion for sustainable tourism.

The facility was built using sustainable materials and was done in a manner that is harmonious with nature and the environment.

Care is taken to preserve the island's innate features: flora and fauna.

The resort takes part in protecting and preserving Sumba’s unique culture, environment, and resources, even boasting 90% local Sumbanese staff - a group with a deep connection and appreciation of their ancestral land.

The Sumba Foundation is deeply committed to lessening the consequences of poverty on the island of Sumba.

Its aim is to provide humanitarian aid by fostering village-based projects that impact health (including access and malaria control), education, water and income-generation, while preserving and respecting the fragile culture and traditions of the Sumbanese people.

In line with its philosophy, the Sumba Island Resort repatriates all profits to the Sumba Foundation. More information outlined here ---
