Nihiwatu Resort Sumba Island Drone sobre Nihiwatu Resort, Sumba Island, Indonésia | Kangaroo Tours. Kuta, Kabupaten Sumba Timur, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia The story of Nihiwatu is a rare and fascinating tale that began when Sumba’s ancestors, the ‘Marapu,’ landed on its secluded beach centuries ago. Beliefs about their powers vary, but the Marapu spirit has remained a benevolent force on the island, protecting the way of life and attracting custodians whom honor and carry forth the heritage and stories of the Sumbanese people, past and present.The same beach attracted Claude and Petra Graves in 1988, in search of the perfect wave. From this adventure emerged a vision to create a resort that would preserve and share the breathtaking beauty of Sumba with those who would truly appreciate it. Nihiwatu beach, meaning “mortar stone,” was named by early settlers for its isolated rock formation along the tide. The Graves aptly called the resort Nihiwatu for its surrounding legacy.Nihiwatu is an intimate island retreat where ancient tribal culture uniquely forms the backdrop to an experience of unregulated freedom, understated luxury and unforgettable memories.We can tailor your stay and itinerary, orchestrating everything from world-class surfing and fishing, to visiting ancient Stone Age sites and traditional villages; going for a picnic under the breathtaking waterfalls or relaxing under the palm trees at Nihi Oka.Let’s be honest, this is the main reason you are here with us in Sumba. Just take a look out from your window and you can understand why Nihiwatu is so special. This side of the island has always been known for its infamous currents, so be cautious during high tide and swells, as there will be strong currents. The larger the waves are, the stronger the outgoing current will be. Please do not underestimate the power of the Ocean, even if you consider yourself a strong swimmer.  www.nihiwatu.com
